I tried to keep it together last night, but honestly, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop crying for awhile. Doing my first movie and the subsequent press tour was a lot like falling in love for the first time — exciting, terrifying, and full of surprises. I fell in love with this experience, deeply and truly — without caution and without walls. There are so few moments in life that are truly, 100% inexplicable, and for me, the past two years have been composed purely of those moments. This movie is almost out now. I’m so excited for you to see it, but there’s also a strange part of me that isn’t ready. See, the release of this film marks the end of my Last Jedi press tour experience, and maybe, the end of my first love. As weird as this sounds, my dumb, stupid little heart isn’t ready to say goodbye. I HAVE LOVED IT SO MUCH. 😢💔 But deep down, I know this moment doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to everyone who made this movie. Maybe even more, it belongs to anyone who has ever had a seemingly impossible dream, anyone who has ever loved a world outside of their own. @riancjohnson made a @starwars movie and I got to be in it. Miracles happen. Dreams are achievable. Believe in them. But more importantly, believe in yourself. SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE 😭❤️🚀🌌

I’m so lucky that my amazing Starpuffs post amazing pics in my designs and then let me repost it to share with all of you. 💫 I really couldn’t do this without all of your help in sharing and spreading the word! 💙 Happy #InternationalWomensDay to all my amazing ladies around the world who help support my business and designs! I already work almost exclusively with women-run factories in Los Angeles, and I’m working to show women of all types in my shop. I have so much more to do to really be inclusive and I’m so grateful to all of you for helping me grow and learn and do better. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 (Also only a little over a dozen Scavenger Sweaters remain in stock! Can’t do a reorder till we sell out!) Repost @kgirlonfire ・・・ 💫 Reach out with your feelings. What do you see…? 💫 Probably my favorite part of The Last Jedi was seeing Rey's growth and delving further into to complexities of The Force. I'm so happy I got to recreate one of my favorite moments with Justin!! He totally nailed it yet again. What an amazing photographer!! ❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ {{ #cosplay #reycosplay #resistancereycosplay #starwarscosplay #thelastjedicosplay #rey #cosplaygirl #starwars #resistancerey #elhofferdesign #nerdjustin #theforceisstronginmyfamily #stillthinkreyisaskywalkerorasolo }}
