SDCC: I can haz costoom?

Now, really, why do we all come to Comic Con? COSTUMES, people, costumes.

Considering some of us have problems coordinating normal-people outfits in the morning, this is no small feat.

Bought, altered, stitched, dumpster-dived, put-together-on-the-fly—these crafty Con-goers have brought their creativity and cosplay to San Diego.

What's been your favorite Con costume? Which characters are you hoping to see? Anyone see a Death Note character, alert me pronto.

Sailor Mercury and Steampunk:



Note: Steampunk...it's the new pink.

Alucard (from Hellsing) and self-made creation:




Japanese "fruits" fashion:



Ren already posted the X-Men family photo with the baby Wolverine. Let's say it together...aww.

And this guy is not in costume—but he was the only one rolling around on a Segway and dodging the Preview Night crowd—so we had to capture his brilliance.



Three things one should never say to someone wearing a costume:

1. "Excuse me, what character are you supposed to be? Huh. Wait—can you spell that for me?"

2. "Hey, your costume is falling off.  I am worried."

3. "You are not wearing a costume.  I thought...hm."

Wow... you can actually see the floor. My memories of past Comic Cons are that there's no room to walk, let alone ride a Segway.

Then again, it's only Thursday!

Where's your costume, Dot?

I spent several seconds battling the tide trying to photograph a tiny Venom who seemed to be directing a middle-aged and paunchy man Master-Blaster style.

(When will Mel stop the radical rightism and just do another Thunderdome?)

Venom/Master-Blaster just wouldn't hold still!
