Comic-Con 2009 Costumes Gallery – Day 1, Part 2

You wanted to spend your day awash in Comic-Con costumes, right? Yes, I thought so.

I accept demonstrations of gratitude in the form of exotic Maori tribal dances and American dollars.

Amputee Zombie Costume
Unless you have ever lost a limb and then have gone to Comic-Con as a zombie, having painted your missing limb like a bloody stump, you have never been as committed to a costume as this guy is. Never.

Cobra and Captain America Costumes
Sometimes a Cobra Trooper will fight Black Captain America. This is a thing that happens. At Comic-Con.

Cobra Troopers Costumes
I don’t care that these guys are a little on the hefty side. Cobra costumes are still cool, and you never see these particular ones. Which I cannot name because I am weak of mind before 1p. (Who wants to earn a finger-gun salute in the comments?)

Matrix Trinity Costume
Lady in a Trinity costume taking her character very seriously.

Indiana Jones Last Crusade Costumes
The boys from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. LucasFilm will let anyone in their booth.

Batman RIP Costume
Batman costume from the recent R.I.P. storyline. I’m sure those of you not in-the-know are wondering why Batman joined a circus from the 1960s.

Predator Costume
Predator costume. ‘Nuff said.

GI Joe Costumes
It’s funny how quickly an ill-timed blink can diminish one’s badassery, eh, guys?

YouTube and MySpace Costumes
Ten points for creativity, seven for execution.

Catwoman Costume
Like I said before, lots of Catwoman costumes. And it is my personal struggle to document them in all of their form-fitting, skin-exposing glory.

Wolverine Costume
I’m calling it early: laziest costume at Comic-Con. If you hadn’t guessed based solely on the hair and chops, this is Wolverine.

Robin, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow Costumes
Speaking of lazy. Me: “Do you want to stand up?” Robin: “No. I’m supposed to be fighting them, but I’m too lazy.”

Comic-Con Booth Babe
Booth babes create oxygen through photosynthesis and nourish all of us! It’s a fact. They are also all guaranteed to be wearing a costume for something you won’t recognize.

Heroine Costume
Take this woman, for instance. Those are the breasts of someone hired to promote something. And who the hell knows what that thing is.

Gambit Costume
Gambit costume.

Phoenix Costume
Yay, I’m the Phoenix! Yaaaaaay!

Harley Quinn Costume
I literally cajoled this girl into striking a pose, and this is what she came up with. I take what I can get.

Robin Hood Costume
Home-made Robin Hood costume. There are apparently riveted leather pieces on there or something like that.

Venture Bros Costumes
These are Venture Bros characters, right?

Death Note Costumes
Death Note costumes. Ok, I’ve been reminded that the monster is Ryuk the Shinigami, but I forget the name of the sulky boy genius kid.

Sam and Max Costume
Max from Sam & Max. Whom I didn’t recognize at first because he was pink. And six feet tall.

    GWS, it’s mother yoishi from dragonball.

    And the cobra dood with the giant claw is the Android Trooper (don’t think he had a real name…).

    Great pics!

    Great coverage! It really makes me wish I wasn’t poor and living 2,000 miles from the event.

    The 3 cobra costumes are as follows (clockwise starting from the left) Firefly, Cobra Viper, Cobra B.A.T. (Bat Android Trooper).

    Keep up the great work!

    The Phoenix chick should have gone as Elasti-Girl with those ‘Incredibly’ long arms!

    Black Captain America is named Josiah.
