“Someone has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly boy.”
-Princess Leia Organa

Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia was the first female hero I remember. Her take no crap, get the job done toughness was something rare and new and inspiring. Although female heroes are still more rare than they should be, I’m very thankful for strong women like Carrie Fisher and projects like Star Wars that recognize the value of all people.

Jon took this photo back in 2014 at Fish Ladder Park in Grand Rapids. View his photo bigger, see more in his Cosplay/Costume slideshow, and be sure to follow Jon Clay Photo on Facebook.
