Comic-Con 2009 Costumes Gallery – Day 1, Part 1

From the sublime to the sexy to the ridiculous… and then to the even more ridiculous… the San Diego Comic-Con costumes have not disappointed, thus far.

Boba Fett Pimp Costume
You never see Star Trek costumes with the sort of panache that Pimp Vader and Pimp Boba Fett have.

Star Trek Costumes
No, instead, we get more reminders from the Trekkers of just how emphatically uncool they are. A little Pimp Spock action wouldn’t kill you, people!

Borg Costume
Borg. A.k.a., the only “cool” cache the Trek universe has other than Picard and the J.J. Abrams flick.

Alice in Wonderland Costume
Alice in Wonderland and The Mad Hatter. Suuuuuuper glad to be here.

Freddy Krueger Costume
Freddy Krueger costume. Also? Real knives.

Bucky Captain America Costumes
In case you were wondering, this guy is the new Captain America (formerly Bucky). More importantly, he is unabashedly wearing tight, black spandex in a public forum. Cheers.

Mr Miracle and Kitty Pryde Costumes
Mr. Miracle and Kitty Pryde costumes. The two characters least-likely to team-up in a DC/Marvel crossover event.

Comic-Con Costume
Some guy promoting some thing. Meh. But, hey! Glowy eyes!

Death Note Costume
That monster from Death Note whose name I’m too lazy to Google and too frail-minded to remember.

Warhammer 40,000 Costume
Warhammer 40,000 costume. Wearing boots that make him seven feet tall. Commitment!

Unemployed Skeletor Costume
I asked unemployed Skeletor if he had any special skills, and he said, “evil masterminding.” I guess there are worse skills to have in this economy.

Star Wars Jedi Costumes
Clone Trooper costumes are a dime a dozen, so these Sith get a mention for originality.

Cobra Trooper and Commander Costumes
I’m actually seeing more and more Cobra Commanders and troopers at these conventions, too, but as long as there is spandex stretched around a boob, I’ll be there to photograph it. (Hint to the Star Wars cosplayers: you could do worse than to have a Spandex Trooper. Just sayin’.)

Comic-Con Costume
Yeah. I don’t know.

Mad Max Costumes
Mad Max fans?

Catwoman Costume
Lots of Catwoman costumes this year, too.

Lando Calrissian Costume
Finally! It only took three years of going to Comic-Con for me to find a Lando Calrissian costume. And with a Colt 45-powered sense of humor, no less.

Cobra Baroness Costume
The Baroness. Very much in character. Respect.

Comic-Con Costume
Argh, I can’t quite place this guy. If you can remind me in the comments, I shall salute you with a wink and finger-gun combo.

Robin and Batgirl Costumes
I told Batgirl she was too happy to be in character, and Robin was all, “I told you so!”

Crimson Guard Costume
Now that is a Crimson Guardsman who gives not a shit.

    The huge hulking monster guy looks to be a Tank from Left 4 Dead. http://media.photobucket.com/image/left%204%20dead%20tank/left4dead411/screenshots/tank-face.jpg (Not my image)

    Also, score, a Darth Nihlus! Mad props for KotOR costume! :)

  • Pia July 24, 2009, 2:21 am

    Very nice~!

    http://i192.photobucket.com/albums/z167/Great_WhiteSnark/IMG_5624wtmk.jpg <it’s Master Roshi, from DBZ.

    And the Death Note guy’s name is Ryuk.

  • Lacrimae July 24, 2009, 2:24 am

    Old guy is Son Goku’s teacher, Master Roshi (Dragonball)

  • jeremy July 24, 2009, 2:31 am

    the guy you cant place is the teacher guy from dragonball

  • Great White Snark July 24, 2009, 2:34 am

    Wow, quick with the responses. Thank you, good people, I wink at you and offer a simultaneous finger-gun salute.

  • Nick July 24, 2009, 2:36 am

    I’m pretty sure the guy with the beard is supposed to be the old dude from Dragon Ball Z. the old guy that lives on the island.

    Yeah. I just searched it. He is Master Roshi.

  • Malsain July 24, 2009, 7:26 am

    The 2 girls in the middle of the Catwomen picture run http://abe-kroenen.livejournal.com/ – Gay action figure comic.

  • Tara July 24, 2009, 7:30 am

    Is that Lela from Futurama in with the Trekkies?

  • Ben July 24, 2009, 8:01 am

    The old guy looks like Dr. Irving Schlock from Sluggy Freelance

  • Movie Meg July 24, 2009, 8:21 am

    Hey, has anyone mentioned that it’s Master Roshi yet? ;)

    Spock’s already a pimp, check it! (too lazy to photoshop a pimp hat/cane)

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Paul July 24, 2009, 8:33 am

    That Tank costume is most impressive.

  • nickolai July 24, 2009, 9:32 am

    I think that’s the Mister Toshi guy from that inane japanese anime thing.

    Awesome pics! Lando should stand with the other Star Wars pimps.

  • RAMcakes July 24, 2009, 10:27 am

    Since everyone else is pointing out Master Roshi, I figure I’ll point out the Death Note character. While I won’t receive the coveted wink and finger-gun, I get my own kudos.. or something..
    It’s Ryuk the Shinigami. He likes apples.

  • Nathan D July 24, 2009, 11:15 am

    GWS, your cos-posts are the highlight of my year. Well, my blog reading for the year. Or, at least my geek blog reading for the year. Point is: epic.

  • PrfktTear July 25, 2009, 10:06 pm

    Is that Sarah Palin at Comic Con dressed as Baroness?

  • Shanyn July 27, 2009, 2:49 pm

    I just really want to spend a night on the town with Gangsta Lando and Fett the Pimp. For reals.

  • Lando July 29, 2009, 5:54 am

    You know how many free beers that costume got me…you ain’t the only one that wanted to spend a night on the town with Lando

  • Doriinatrix July 30, 2009, 4:29 pm

    The Tank costume is quite possibly the greatest costume I have ever seen….

  • Audburrito July 24, 2010, 11:18 am

    The giant grey monster guy w/ his tongue sticking out is a Tank from the game Left 4 Dead.
