In a series like Star Wars, there a plenty of bad guysbut Northup says they can also be a means of support to young fans.

She says one of her favorite parts of comic-cons is the opportunity to see people of all kinds in their element, surrounded by pop-culture fans alike.

“When I put on a costume, it’s like I slip into a different role. So I have this different personality. I can be a bossy officer or a force user or whatever I want to be, and it’s a lot of fun and people like seeing us, taking pictures with us. So seeing people happy because they see us, it makes me happy, Northup says.

The Motor City Comic Con began on Friday, October 14th and wrapped up Sunday, October 16th.
