Comic-Con 2008 Costume Gallery – Days 2 and 3, Part 1

Superman and Lois Lane Costume
Superman and Lois Lane. Or, The Guy Taking This Shit Way Too Seriously and His Patient Girlfriend.

Ms Marvel Costume
I bet Ms. Marvel didn’t plan for this when she got her degree in Journalism.

Starscream and Rorschach Costume
All the Transformers costumes I saw were inspired by the newest animated series. More evidence of the downfall of our society.

Twilek Costume

Halo Costume

Final Fantasy Costume
I have no idea what this is, so I assume it’s from Final Fantasy.

Ghostbusters Costume
Fat guys in costume never get old.

Chewbacca Costume
Chewbacca is a liar. I saw him using CitySearch.

Black Spider-Man Costume

Mr Blue Costume
Me: “What are you supposed to be?” Him: “Mr. Blue.” Me: “Oh. Right.”

Cylon Costume
Cylon costume with working illuminated visor for the win.

Jedi Knight Costume

Snake Eyes Costume
Your luck has run out, ’cause you just rolled a Snake Eyes. BANG BANG!

Riddler Batwoman Harley Quinn Costume

Captain America Costume
You want to tell him Captain America’s supposed to be white? Yeah, me neither.

Deadpool Costume

Dr Strange Costume

Wonder Woman Costume

Awesome X Costume

Zombie Hulk Costume
You haven’t lived until you’re heard Zombie Hulk whine in discomfort. I guess it was hot in there.

Beast, Storm, Marvel Girl Costume

Carnage Costume

Storm Costume

Catwoman, Black Cat Costume
One day a brilliant scientist will create “spleather,” a combination of my two favorite things: spandex and leather.

Tank Girl Costume
Know what’s scary? Her nipples are holding those things up.

Catwoman, Harley Quinn Costume

Serenity Costume

Comic-Con Costume

Soundblaster Costume
No, seriously, though. Shut up, new Transformers animated series.

Solid Snake Costume
So realistic. He smelled like a homeless video game character and everything.

Batman Beyond Costume
Batman Beyond. The later years.

Naruto Costume
I generally don’t cover Naruto or whatever, but hey… giant sword!

Clone Trooper Costume

Power Ranger Costume
You know who’s keeping the Power Rangers spirit alive? This lady.

    Great pictures! It was good to see you there.

    I think that Blaster was a chick.

    I kinda wish these were each individual posts, so we could comment on them individually — kinda loses something when you have to explain… Thanks once again for the action shots of geekdom.

    And who created this rumor there are no women in this subculture? Your pictures would suggest quite the contrary. Though, perhaps there is some selection bias at work here. Hmm.

    The one you have labeled as Naruto is Bleach but great post otherwise.
    Love the Mal & Inara costumes

    Actually, there was a black Captain America…

    Tom, I know, but I’m indifferent to “facts” when they get in the way of making a half-assed joke.

  • Great White Snark July 28, 2008, 11:39 am

    Ansible, thanks for the guidance. I label anything I don’t know as “Final Fantasy” or “Naruto.” It’s completely arbitrary, and also not likely to change any time soon.

    As in, ever.

  • ur so rong August 12, 2008, 11:38 pm

    yo its bleach not naruto and its so totally violent…way better than wannabe naruto

  • TonyStark October 19, 2009, 4:18 pm

    ….actually, the very first Cpt. America was black just a guess but this could be where the guy was getting that from ;)

    That black Captain America is Isiah Bradley, the legitimate character known as Captain America, which premiered in Captain America: Red, White, and Black
