Things We Saw Today: Mark Hamill Was Walking Around Comic-Con as “Orange Vader” Because of Course He Was


If you were at SDCC this weekend, you may have had a run-in with a man calling himself “Orange Vader.” Orange Vader sported a familiar-looking wig, an orange Darth Vader mask, an orange golf club, and a white shirt saying “Make the Death Star Great Again.” You weren’t just running into a brilliantly satirical cosplayer, but young Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.

A few fans were shocked, and delighted, to find out the true identity of “Orange Vader,” as Mark Hamill confirmed it on Twitter. Hamill also took to the floor dresses as a Stormtrooper, wouldn’t be the first time, and I can only imagine the tears as people wonder if the Stormtrooper they saw was Hamill.

What a delightful man, please, just keep Mark Hamill safe. He is our only hope.
