Happy birthday, Han Solo!
Harrison Ford turns 70 today, a fact being celebrated by San Diego Comic-Con attendees, both the fans and the famous.
“[His impact] is huge. He single-handedly brought back the fedora, the Stetson and the leather jacket, the whip. He brought back the adventure with Spielberg and Lucas, brought back adventure in all genres, sci-fi, fantasy and the rest," said Christopher Shaw, a cosplayer who was all gussied up as Indiana Jones in the convention hall.
“Happy birthday, Harrison! Keep the adventures coming. Hopefully there will be an ‘Indy 5’ coming soon, and if you retire before then, I’m your man,” Shaw said.
Some of the wildest and wackiest costumes from San Diego Comic-Con are on display in these fantastic images from CNN iReporter montebubbles. She said she chose these people as they stood out from the rest of the crowds at the convention.
Joyce Chow (montebubbles) adds, "I am certain that if you are attending you will have your own favorites so please comment."
