Comic-Con 2009 Costumes Gallery – Days 3 and 4

By Great White Snark | July 27, 2009

Cosplay is as cosplay does. And it “does” a lot like Lindsay Lohan. It has its sexy, clever moments… but the train wrecks are just as entertaining.

Enjoy this second-to-last batch of costumes from Comic-Con 2009.

Disney Princess Costumes
The Disney Princesses. And someone brought her party cleavage! (Special bonus cleavage: click the pic for a larger view.)

Swamp Thing Costume
Swamp Thing? Cousin It? Both?

G.I. Joe Costumes
The G.I. Joe team. Being unreasonably cheerful.

Cobra Costumes
At least the Cobras are appropriately sullen, for the most part. (Excellent costume work.)

Green Lantern Costume
Green Lantern has a package he’d like to deliver to… you!

Silk Spectre II Costume
Doesn’t she look so happy? Her face fell like a national monument in a Roland Emmerich movie when I told her a moment later that she had missed the Watchmen director’s cut screening.

Superwoman Costume
Small, but serious.

Monarch Henchmen Costumes
I know that these are Monarch’s henchmen from Venture Bros…

Venture Bros Costume
…but I can’t place this member of the Venture Bros cast, and “blue eskimo guy” ain’t helping me out on The Google. [Update: Time to take my geek cred out back and shoot it. Reader Eric reminded me this is Captain Cold from The Flash comics.]

Dr Girlfriend Costume
Dr. Girlfriend from the Venture Bros. (See how much I know?)

Venture Bros Costumes
And then there’s that guy from Venture Bros. And that other guy. And that chick. You know? Yeah. Them.

The Sims Costumes
Points for cleverness.  The Sims.

Avatar Aang Airbender Costume
Shockingly, the only Airbender costume I saw at the convention. I’m sure that will all change when M. Night “The Happening” Shyamalan demolishes us with his movie adaptation of the cartoon next summer, right? RIGHT?

Toilet Plunger Costume
You had me at toilet plunger.

Harley Quinn Costume
Did I say no more pictures of Harley Quinn? I meant only the ones that don’t look batshit crazy.

Snake Eyes and Scarlett Costumes
Scarlett isn’t a natural redhead and I’m starting to think that perhaps this Snake Eyes isn’t actually a ninja.

Snake Eyes Costume
Now there’s a ninja.

Iron Man Costume
Iron-ish Man.

Green Lantern and Wonder Woman Costumes
“I’m the Green Lantern. Yesssssss!” [fist-pump]

Catwoman Costume
Catwoman and Potato Sack Man. Or Scarecrow. Whatever.

Batman Costumes
The happy Batman clan.

Superman and Wonder Woman Costumes
I got nothing. They are people. In costumes. The end.

Bioshock Big Sister Costume
To you neophytes: this is not steampunk Jacques Cousteau. A Big Sister from Bioshock 2.

White Violin Costume
The White Violin costume. Accuracy demands actual pasty-skinned nudity, but I’ll let it slide.

Sexy Disney Princess Costumes
Two, two, TWO times the sexy Disney Princess cleavage! And now, featuring bonus Little Mermaid butt cheek! (Click the pic for a larger version.)

      Brian Posehn looks thrilled in the background of the Big Sister picture.

      That Snake Eyes guy is awesome… the second one, at least. Here’s hoping Shyamalan doesn’t butcher Avatar.. which he will.

      @MysteryD8: HA! You’d think I would have noticed Brian Posehn in that shot. Good catch.

      That’s the best random Brian Posehn capture ever.

      I’m hoping when I got to the chicago con that I can come home and discover him hidden in a pic, like he’s a unicorn or something.

      Those sims 3 hats were great! I saw all 3 of them walking around the exhibit hall and the diamonds even lit up! =)

      There were other sims, but these were by far the best…

      […] I didn’t make it out to Comic Con. Luckily, many of the authors of my favorite sites did go to Comic Con. Head over to Great White Snark for a rundown of the weekend. His galleries are a must see: Day 1 Part 1 and Part 2; Day 2 Part 1 and Part 2; and Days 3 and 4. […]
