Comic-Con 2010 Costumes Gallery – Day 1, Part 1

The first batch of much-hyped and -anticipated sh*t-ton of cosplay photos from San Diego Comic-Con 2010

As always, if you can help me name any of the unidentified costumes in the comments, you’ll earn yourself a healthy finger-gun salute.

Comic-Con CostumeIn the future, we’ll all get incredibly bored with faces and colors.

Batman Beyond CostumeBatman Beyond costume with “battle damage.” (Me: “Sorry, say that again?” Him: “Babble Dabbage. Babble Dabbage!

Scary Leather CostumeHi. I’m not actually wearing a costume.

Leather Stilts CostumeBut my girlfriend is. She’s going as a giraffe! Who really likes leather and creepy masks!

Mega Milk CostumeMega Milk costume. Presented without comment. Because I deplore lazy boob jokes. And they’re almost unavoidable in this case.

Green Arrow CostumeGreen Arrow costume. With just a hint of Robin Hood.

Ghostbusters CostumesHis and hers Ghostbusters costumes. You know what the subtitle to the Ghostbusters porn would be, right? “Bustin’ makes me feel good.” (LAZY PORN JOKE.)

Steampunk Lara Croft CostumeSteampunk Lara Croft costume. I deem this steampunk: acceptable.

Futuristic Solder CostumeI think this is a costume from the Jin Roh: Wolf Brigade anime. Yes, I usually rebuff anime cosplay, but if there’s one thing I like more than scorning, it’s showing off how knowledgeable I am. And popcorn.

Slipknot CostumeA “that one guy from Slipknot” costume.

Pink Girls CostumesKaylee from Firefly in her cake dress in the background, with her friend the Blue-Haired Minotaur-Devourer of Doom. (Wild guess.) Sandra from Dramacon.

Star Trek CostumesOld school Star Trek costumes. They show up every year, and don’t get any less devastatingly nerdy. Look at Spock’s face. That’s Vulcan for “shame.”

Team Fortress 2 CostumesEngineer, Scout, and Sniper costumes from Team Fortress 2. I wonder what the odds are that I’ve encountered these guys in-game at some point and cursed each one of their mothers for ever having children. Probably pretty decent, since I’ve cursed just about everyone I’ve met in TF2. They’re much like the lumbering nerds on the Comic-Con convention floor, in that respect.

Dr Horrible CostumeDr. Horrible costume. Damn these good-natured Whedonites and their ability to suppress my natural derogatory instincts.

Ballerina CostumeSo there’s that.

Anime CostumeDon’t tell me what this is, because I’m pretty sure I don’t care.

Black Canary CostumeBlack Canary costume. I just figured out: this is the go-to costume for everyone who has fishnets and a leather jacket in their closet. Which is pretty much everyone, right? Right?

Super Mario Bros CostumesSuper Mario Bros costumes. They’re ironically jolly.

Soldier CostumeSpeaking of jolly, someone should tell this guy that the Aliens get to win in the end.

    I believe the man/woman(?) in the tutu labeled “so there’s that” is supposed to be Princess Tutu from the anime Princess Tutu. Wow…

    Great photos, but Jesus, these costumes get more and more esoteric every year! I think I’m losing my geek edge.

    @nickolai: I’m actually doing better than usual. Usually by now I’ve had about thirteen people correct some of my captions.

    #3 & 4 look like a cross between Doomsday and Mortal Kombat Characters
    #8 Looks like Tank Girl (good movie and comic)
    #9 Looks like a Killzone soldier
    #10 I think is suppose to be Dr. Doom

    A lazy boob joke — is that like a lazy eye joke? Cause one of them does seem to be drifting a bit…

    The girl (me) labeled Blue-Haired Minotaur-Devourer of Doom (lol… love the guess.) is actually cosplaying Sandra from Dramacon.

    Hey, Kaylee in the cake dress here. I’d tell you who my friend is dressed as, but I have the impression that you don’t really care, so I won’t bother.

    @Bodici. GWS is the one who is snarky. If you ever read this blog before, you would recognize humor when you see it. His caption was rather complimentary, and yes, he specifically asked for corrections and correct it when your friend let him know.

    @Alex Yeah, I just reread my comment and it was a little bit…out of line. I’ve had pictures of my cosplays and cosplays of my friends show up on cosplay burn sites before, so I get a little bit defensive when I see pictures posted online with captions. I flipped out and was completely out of line. I’m sorry to everyone.
