I do not have the power to resist a clever mash-up, and Emily, a.k.a. EmBelievable Cosplay caught my attention with her creations of Rey Solo and BB-bacca. To sum up, she took Rey and BB-8 from The Force Awakens and squished them together with Han Solo and Chewbacca, respectively. For the droid-Wookiee hybrid, she crafted the rolling carpet from what looks like a beach ball before carefully laying on fur and making a bandolier. The result is kinda magical--I want to hug the stuffing out of BB-bacca.

View more of Emily's costumes in the gallery below. She submitted another Rey for me to share, along with Velma from Scooby-Doo, Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim, and Belle from Beauty and the Beast. You can find more of EmBelievable's designs and ensembles by following her on Facebook and Instagram.
Do you cosplay or take photographs of cosplayers? Then I want to see your work so we can talk about highlighting what you do in a future Cosplay Friday gallery. If you're interested, please go ahead and email me at [email protected] with hi-res photos you'd like me to feature. Be sure to provide credits for the cosplayers or photographers for each image because giving credit is good manners--bonus points if you include links to relevant Facebook pages or websites. Though I wish I knew all the geek franchises, I don't, so please let me know who or what is being cosplayed--I can usually figure it out, but I'll take all the help I can get.
