Rose Tico Fans Show Their Love at Comic-Con

When darkness rises in the Star Wars fandom, light rises to meet it, and this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, the Force was strong with a group of cosplaying Rose Tico supporters, who showed up in costume to spread the love for [Kelly Marie] Tran’s character.

The meet-up, called the #RallyForRose, was organized by Nerds of Color, a website and fan community founded by Keith Chow and dedicated to fans who are less represented in media.

In addition to costumes, some fans wore t-shirts with Obama-style campaign logos featuring Rose’s face instead of the former president’s, and the word “Rose” instead of “hope.”
