Comic-Con 2008 Costume Gallery – Day 1, Part 1

Busy day on the convention floor of Comic-Con International 2008 snapping pictures of costumes and other goodies I’ll post to my Flickr photostream and subsequent posts.

Supergirl Costume

Fairy and Pirate Vixen Costume
Me: “Hey, could I get your picture?” Girl #1: “Sure, should we, like, hang ourselves on you or something?” Me: “No, standing over there will be just fine.”

Bikini Babe Costume
Her: “Do you want the front or the back.” Me: “I’m trying to remember the last time someone asked me that.” Her, after a few seconds of reflection: “Oh… ha!”

Bondage Fairy Costume
Bondage fairy. No shit.

Anime Costume

Geriatric Superman and Vampire Elf Costume
Creepy contest: Geriatric Superman vs. Evil Vampire Elf(?).

Cheyenne Costume

Orgazmo and Belle Costume
The second guy I’ve ever met who enjoyed Orgazmo.

Darth Vader Costume and Annakin
Bizarro Star Wars: Vader with a beer belly and Annakin Skywalker with a vagina.

Supergirl Costume

Steampunk Costumes

Comic-Con Costumes
This girl knows that guns and boobs sell tickets. I just don’t what show I’m seeing.

Pikachu Costume
Go ahead and die if you’d like, Pikachu. I won’t mind. Adorable, yellow bastard.

Ghostbusters Costumes

Psylocke Phoenix Superman Costumes

Final Fantasy Costume
This broad got visibly pissed when I didn’t know she was dressed up as a Final Fantasy character. Only at Comic-Con, people.

Green Arrow Costume
I actually asked this guy dressed as Green Arrow how long it took to grow his beard out for the costume. Not realizing it was fake. Because I’m an idiot.

Star Trek Costume
Tell me that doesn’t look like Avery Brooks. And, no, not all black people look alike to me. But all Canadians do sound alike, and I’m standing by that.

Starship Troopers Costume
Man, this guy handing out fliers for Starship Troopers 3 is acting the shit out of this role. Watch your back, Casper Van Dien!

i’m sorry, what video game are you promoting, again? I couldn’t hear you over the sound of your hypnotic boob domes.

Starfire Costume
Two options when you have red hair and boobs at Comic-Con: Jean Grey or Starfire.

Batman and Wonder Woman Costume

Comic-Con Booth Babe

Comic-Con Booth Babe

Comic-Con Booth Babe

Comic-Con Booth Babe
She stared straight into my soul. And then tickled it with an electric cattle prod.

Ghost Rider Costume
The only seven-foot-tall endomorphic Ghost Rider you’ll ever see. Guaranteed.

Comic-Con Costumes

Stormtrooper and Jango Fett Costume

    Wow – this is fantastic stuff. I’ve been to a few Trek cons in my time, but they’ve got nuthin’ on this crowd. I only wish you had captions on all the pics, a) because they’re hilarious and b) so I knew who the heck some of these people are supposed to be.

    Your posting these photos almost makes me want to forgive you for hating Star Trek. Almost.

    All right, I’ll say it. I’m hot for Supergirl and chicks that dress like her.

    So Bondage Fairies are not immune to nipple chafing? Wouldn’t have guessed that…

    Sorry if I was “visibly upset” that you didn’t know I was a final fantasy character, but I spent a lot of time on that costume. :(

    Hey, as a redhead with breasts at Cons I often go as Barbara Gordon IE BATGIRL.

    Never ever as starfire.
