Comic-Con 2010 Costumes Gallery – Day 3

There’s only one set of photos of costumes from Day 3 of  San Diego Comic-Con 2010. Because by the time the third day of Comic-Con rolls around, 125,000 sweaty nerds have helped me develop a hearty distaste for humanity. The majority of the day ends up spent drinking and mumbling.

Tank Girl Costume
Tank Girl costume. Who also happened to be a performer at Topless Robot’s Nerd Burlesque show, and the proud owner of a pair of The Crazy Eyes.

Street Fighter Costumes
Street Fighter costumes. Pretty sure both the ridiculous hair and the ridiculous bulge are real.

Bunny Costume
Ok. Let’s identify this one together. I’ll start. “Rabbit.” Ok. Now it’s your turn.

Pedobear Costume
Pedobear costume. In a fit of irony, I touched him inappropriately.

Plants vs. Zombies Costumes
Plants vs. Zombies costumes.

Superhero Costumes
Pretty sure I should know what this is. But I’m certain that I don’t care.

Sue Storm Costume
Sue Storm costume. Her wig was made from 100% human hair. From 13 different donors.

Fishnets Costume
Me: “What are you supposed to be?” Her: “I don’t know.” Me: “So, basically, you had a pair of fish net stockings in your closet, and you were like, hey, this is what I’ll wear to Comic-Con…?” Her: “Yeah.”

Spike and Drusilla Costumes
Spike and Drusilla costumes. Excellent costumes, and I tend to treat Whedonites gently, anyway. Sweet, dorky bastards that they are.

Spaceballs Barf Costume
Barf costume from Spaceballs.

Beetle Juice Costume
Beetle Juice costume.

Steampunk Costume
“Steampunk” costume. Me: “You need more brass or goggles or something.”

Catwoman and Gunslinger Costumes
Catwoman and Gunslinger costumes.

Alice in Wonderland Costume
Crossplay Mad Hatter and Link costumes. Now that I think about it, this is the first time I’ve seen a dude dress up as Link. And he should consider that perhaps there’s a reason for that.

Ultimale Costume
Ultimale costume. Him: “People look at the symbol and see different things.” Me: “I see a penis.” Him: “Ha. Right.”

Crossplay Green Hornet Costume
Crossplay Green Hornet costume. Alternatively: a jacket topper on a leg cake.

Homer Simpson Costume
Homer Simpson costume.

Tentacle Rape Costume
A Tentacle Rape Fairy Costume. I AM NOT JOKING. She handed me her card. And that’s what it said.

Spider-Man and Black Cat Costumes
Black Cat and Spider-Man costumes. Whew. I haven’t seen a costume with cleavage for about five minutes, and I was getting antsy.

Nick Fury Costume
Nick Fury costume. Who apparently stole his gun from a 1950s B-movie space man.

Paper Bag Costumes
Paper bag costumes. Because I’m finishing strong!

    Aha! You got Bri Chan!! She’s the crossplay Mad Hatter. That made irrationally excited.

    I think ‘rabbit’ might be a redwall character.

    Rabbit is indeed as far as I can make out a redwall character… named… I forgot. No frigging clue. I could google but I am too lazy. I always refer to him as the foppish Rabbit guy in my head you see.

    The one you can’t identify but should know is the semi-obscure DC superteam The Shadowpact (the loose collection of supernatural powered supers)

    From left to right:
    Ragman
    Enchantress
    Nightshade (just her head)
    Nightmaster (not related to Nightshade)
    Phantom Stranger
    Blue Devil
