Have we reached the point yet where any face-concealing cosplay on the convention floor is suspect? Hopefully not, or stars like John Boyega will never again know what it feels like to be an anonymous fan. Just one of thousands in the throng, buffeted along by the current of flesh and consumerism.

For what might be his last year flying under the celebrity radar, Boyega (Finn of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) put on a Clone Trooper mask and took to the floor.

I get the distinct feeling Boyega will have to put in way more effort at Star Wars Celebration 2016 if he wants to go shopping without a phalanx of body guards!
