Over 60 of The World’s Most Trashy, Ugly, Slutty and Ghetto Prom Dresses

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

What time is it? It’s not Adventure Time, but it’s something almost as fun -prom season. And while plenty of teens will attend their prom and have a great time this year, even non-attendees can enjoy the celebration by enjoying the trashy, terrible style that these teens are certain to regret sooner rather than later.

She’s Cheaper Than The Dress

83319121

Perfect for: The AVN Awards (aka the award show for porn movies)

What’s wrong with it? My boyfriend swears that this design must be intended to be worn with something under it, but the fact that this is a catalog image indicates that this is really how they intend this dress to be worn.

The bottom line: There are some seriously slutty dresses on this list, but as far as commercially manufactured ones, it’s hard to get more whore-y than this.

The Princess and the Pea Pod

9110fbd3-f61e-41dc-aaae-5ab89eeb421b

Perfect for: A pregnant genie

What’s wrong with it? Hey, why let a little thing like a pregnancy stop you from wearing the slutty prom dress of your dreams? And won’t your future baby be proud when he sees what a prominent role he played in your prom dress?

The bottom line: Skanky dresses are bad enough at prom, but accentuating your pregnant belly with a sparkly sash and an outfit that doesn’t cover up much else besides your baby bump is the ultimate in classlessness.

Did That Come on a Cardboard Tube?

471921

Perfect for: A Charmin commercial or a nudist prom.

What’s wrong with it? Aside from the fact that it looks like pieces of toilet paper tied together, it barely covers her titties or kooter.

The bottom line: If you have to hold the front of your dress closed at the front to avoid a wardrobe malfunction, you probably shouldn’t be wearing it.

The Gold Digger In Training

83319136

Perfect for: The next Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

What’s wrong with it? It looks like there’s more silicone straps on this thing than actual fabric. Seriously she’d probably look less trashy if she wore a bikini to prom.

The bottom line: If you’re already trying this hard to land a rich husband and you haven’t even graduated high school, then your school has failed in giving you any real life skills.

Chaintrosity

000

Perfect for: The hooker date of someone attending the Player’s Ball

What’s wrong with it? I don’t know which is worse -the random chains holding the whole monstrosity up, the ample exposed skin or the sheer fabric on the leg area that proves “yes, this dress could be sluttier.”

The bottom line: In all, the whole thing looks like it feel in a garbage disposal before she pulled it back out and said “ehhh, it’s good enough” and went off to prom.

The Showgirl Surprise

17i0tcd1jysvzjpg

download

 

ghetto_prom_dress_2

Perfect for: An aspiring flamingo.

What’s wrong with it? The cleavage-loaded top and rhinestones are nothing compared to the ruffly disaster that makes up the skirt and train of these trainwrecks.

The bottom line: Maybe someone on Dancing With the Stars could get away with wearing one of these, but a teenager going to prom shouldn’t even be able to get her beak through the door in this thing.

A Little Off the Top (And Sides, And Middle, And Bottom)

2

Perfect for: Three groupies trying to win over Jay-Z after hearing about his marital problems with Beyonce.

What’s wrong with it? To start off with, most high schools would never let you go through the door in any of these dresses for any number of reasons -particularly the fact that the slits all go right up to their panties. Next, the black dresses’ midsection manages to look even more slutty than even the bra-top one because having two strips of fabric basically draws the eye to her gut.

The bottom line: They must have been trying to save fabric because what other excuse is there for cutting out the entire front section of the black dresses’ skirt?

She Blinded Me With Ugly

17i0tc93di9b4jpg

promgirl-824824309

Perfect for: An interpretive dance about the lifespan of a butterfly.

What’s wrong with it? The missing sides and excessive cleavage still play second-fiddle to these hideously-trashy fabric.

The bottom line: Unless you’re trying to demonstrate the mating rituals of the native butterflies, there’s practically no excuse to wear something this ugly.

A Confederacy of Dumbasses

247fd77e-e216-4484-9697-aaee52b139d7

all-american girl

Confederate-Prom-Dress-2012-21-300x402

Perfect for: Anyone inbred enough to lack the cultural understanding, class and decency necessary to know this is a bad idea.

What’s wrong with it? The Confederate flag. Yes, we’ve all heard that it’s not racist, but is really a sign of rebellion, blah, blah, blah, but you know what, the Nazi Swastika is technically only a symbol of the Nationalist Socialist Party, not of their murder of millions of Jewish people, but that doesn’t make it any less offensive.

The bottom line: Leave the Confederate flag to General Lee of the Dukes of Hazard.

Bodysuits and Barebacks

17i248ntgjm9ajpg

Perfect for: The next Lady Gaga or Pink.

What’s wrong with it? It looks like she’s wearing a leather diaper over the see-through bodysuit and despite this potty protection, her crack is still hanging out.

The bottom line: Let the pop stars try to be shocking -they’re the only ones with an excuse to get away with wearing saggy-leather diapers.

Saran Duran

6bede293252e9ab602183195ab6c205c

Perfect for: A human-filled car wash machine

What’s wrong with it? The two slits, the exposed stomach and sides and the cleavage are all bad, but that fabric is probably the worst thing about this dress.

The bottom line: If it looks like you could wrap leftovers in it, it probably shouldn’t be worn to prom.

I Don’t Dream of Skankie

4306l

Perfect for: A cheesy metal video from the 80s.

What’s wrong with it? It’s like she grabbed a bra top, paired it with a long skirt and decided that if she really wanted to whore it up, she’d better cut a few squares around the waist of the skirt too.

The bottom line: When it’s impossible to tell if your pubes are out or if that’s just a shadow, you shouldn’t be wearing it.

Where Serial Killers Come From

83319096

Perfect for: This really wouldn’t be a bad figure-skating outfit.

What’s wrong with it? It’s too short, too skimpy and see-through, the real question is “what’s right about it?”

The bottom line: The boy in the background pretty much nailed how we feel about this dress.

Is That A Vagina On Your Dress Or Are You Happy to See Me?

83319134

Perfect for: A woman with the subtlety of a Bond villain.

What’s wrong with it? The subliminal vagina isn’t so much subliminal as just saying “hey, here’s a vagina right over my real vagina.”

The bottom line: It’s less revealing than most of these other dresses, but no less trashy.

Just A Robot

6KZK6Vf

Perfect for: The hipster girl who pretends she’s above all this, but still desperately wants all the guys to pay attention to her.

What’s wrong with it? Few styles look good in all silver and this is not one of them. As if that weren’t bad enough, the bottom half is just poor-fitting and poorly cut -plus, the amount of leg under this dress makes it look like she forgot to wear the matching skirt.

The bottom line: If you’re going to look like a total slut, at least wear something form-flattering.

Gold and Silver Are A No-Go

ugly-prom-dress

Perfect for: A disco ball.

What’s wrong with it? How do you turn a trashy silver, spandex dress into a formal gown? Apparently by adding beaded curtains to the bottom.

The bottom line: This dress looks like it belongs in a weird, wannabe-sexy Coors ad, but even then it would fail at being sexy or glamorous.

American Slut-peril

Screen Shot 2013-04-22 at 4_opt (2)

Perfect for: An American Apparel billboard.

What’s wrong with it? Nothing says formal occasion like pleather and mesh

The bottom line: If a dress looks terrible on the model, it probably won’t look great on anyone else and these materials just look terrible together in any situation.

Life In Plastic Ain’t Fantastic

83319139

Perfect for: Barbie’s formal sleepover.

What’s wrong with it? Pink, zebra, a garter, elastic and a dangling belly ring? No, just no.

The bottom line: A pink and zebra pajama pants set with train isn’t a good look for anything but a sleepover.

Sponge Bob Sad Pants

83319097

Perfect for: Literally nothing. There is no reason this dress should exist.

What’s wrong with it? Fine, you want to wear a character from a children’s cartoon on your dress -but don’t whore it up. No one wants to think about Sponge Bob and your tits.

The bottom line: Even Sponge Bob is begging you to confiscate this dress and burn it with fire so he can just die in peace and be put out of his misery.

Don’t Poo Pooh On Me?

83319153

Perfect for: Any four year-old’s prom.

What’s wrong with it? Really, without the sluttiness of the Sponge Bob dress, this one isn’t nearly as bad, but the matching suit is pretty terrible and the guy doesn’t really look thrilled to be wearing it either.

The bottom line: Pooh is pretty awesome, but a boot-leg bow-tied version isn’t really the best prom theme.

Jessica Simpson Beta Version

9CWapG6

Perfect for: A wannabe princess who can’t afford alterations or a dress that fits right in the first place.

What’s wrong with it? Sluttiness aside, you know it’s bad when not even the model looks good in this poorly-cut design.

The bottom line: There are worse dresses around, but you’re still not going to impress anyone in this getup.

Hey Shorty

83319142

83319137

 

n1121007870_442119_1390297

Screen Shot 2013-04-23 at 2_opt (1)

Perfect for: Those who can’t decide if they want to go formal, semi-formal or hooker in hot pants.

What’s wrong with it? These are all just awful, even the semi-fancy one at the bottom -because, let’s face it, shorts aren’t fancy. If you are going to rock the shorts at least don’t go for a bra top with suspenders look.

The bottom line: Sparkly shorts are pretty much only good for cheerleaders, cabaret dancers and hookers.

World of Whatcraft?

83319141

Perfect for: A role playing convention where you have to make your own characters.

What’s wrong with it? It’s like she put a see-through bustier together with a mermaid skirt and then decided it wasn’t eye-catching enough, so she needed to add some matching blue spikes to the look. Maybe she wanted GWAR to look sexy.

The bottom line: Pretty much everything about this look is terrible.

Camo-Camo-CamoChameleon

0f2bb26b-bbef-4c8e-9f2b-dd74a47c8c00

aeffc163-c049-407c-9a24-fdacab223c0d

Perfect for: Anyone who needs to hide in the bushes and hunt ducks before, during or after attending a formal event.

What’s wrong with it? As I pointed out in the Terribly Trashy Tuxes post, camouflage is pretty much always a poor choice unless you are actually on a military mission or hunting.

The bottom line: When someone tells you the best thing you can do at prom is just “blend in,” this is not what they mean.

 No, You’re Not Balling

wallace-30

ghetto-prom-pictures-2

Perfect for: A court-side formal occasion.

What’s wrong with it? There’s nothing wrong with being a sports fan, but like camouflage, there’s a time and a place for your team jersey and it’s not your prom or wedding.

The bottom line: The only excusable reason to have a name and number on the back of your prom dress, is because your prom is in juvenile hall.

Too Much Slut To Shake A Stick At

There are way too many slutty prom dresses to write a lengthy piece about all of them, here’s a giant pile of some of the skankiest ones around.

Looking For New Hangers? Check These Out

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

595-wal

Most people don’t give their hangers much thought, but there really is something nice about wooden hanger. Henry Hanger not only offers an excellent selection of quality wooden hanger styles, they also have them in many great finishes and designs.

Unfinished, black, dark brown and more are all available and they come in matte, glossy or semi-gloss finishes. But more importantly, they come in all sorts of shapes and styles, some of which have notches to hang up your thin-strapped dresses, some of which have bars so you can hang up your pants and yet others have metal cushion clips to pinch up your strapless and delicate clothing.

Oh, and did I mention the clips come in different styles? The hangers also vary in slope, some of them totally horizontal and others with a nice gentle slope like your natural shoulders. The shop also carries children’s hangers, and hangers that are flocked, metal, bamboo and padded fabric, so whatever your needs, they have you covered.

While these wooden hangers are nice for the average person, they are a must have for any retail shop trying to set up with an upscale image and Henry Hanger customizes their hangers and personalizes them so they will satisfy any specific needs you might have in your store. They can even incorporate your company logo into the hangers, which can be beneficial to prevent theft and to help remind past shoppers who bring home hangers to come back to your store and buy more clothing.



You Will Never Win With Grumpy Cat Dungeon Master

Over 200 Fantastic Cosplay Costumes From Comic Con 2013

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Happy post-Comic Con everyone. I’ve finally finished uploading all of these great costumes. Don’t miss my gallery of sexy Comic Con girls from this year or my previous cosplay articles from 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.

This Venom costume was one of my favorites, I was just bummed this picture didn’t turn out as good as I had hoped.

hawk woman and cyborg

Hawkgirl and Cyborg make a great team, if for no other reason than they’re both super shiny.

klingon cosplay

This lovely Klingon Lass was actually performing in the costume at a play later in the weekend.

tardis dress with interior

Tardis dresses are pretty over played these days, but I’m a big fan of this one that actually shows the interior.

I was surprised to have only seen two Claras at the convention, but this girl claimed she saw dozens of them.

doctor and rose comic con

I loved this Doctor and Rose because of their awesome accessories.

the doctor with the tardis

And it’s always cute to see the Doctor and the Tardis together.

This gender-swapped Doctor and her sister Tardis were pretty darn adorable together.

There was something about this cute little Doctor that made me smile.

And this Sherlock costume was great, even if this guy is no Cumberbatch.

battlestar galactica

Movies:

zombie dumb and dumber

Of course, the guys from Dumb and Dumber would be some of the first people made into zombies.

drive ryan gosling cosplay comic con

Drive, fake Ryan Gosling, Drive!

face monster ballerina

 Thanks CJack for letting me know that this costume is from Cabin in the Woods!

selina kyle comic con

Technically, this Selina Kyle could be part of the comic book section, but since her costume was entirely based on the movie version of the character, I figured she’d fit in here better.

nacho libre

How you you not want to yell, “Nacho!!!” when you see this guy?
wonka cosplay sdcc 2013

The only thing that would make this Wonka costume better would be if he was giving away free chocolate.

indiana and katniss

Doctor Jones and Katniss Lara Croft (thanks Elizabeth) could kick so much ass together.

Indiana Jones cosplay Comic con

It’s a good thing Snakes on a Plane wasn’t at this year’s Comic Con.

Indiana Jones and monkey lady SDCC

Indiana Jones with Marion Ravenwood have always been a great couple.

DSCN2253

And you thought ewoks were cute before!

star wars cosplay comic con

That’s one lucky Han to have such a sexy Princess Leia and Chewie with him.

star wars medieval

This renniasance take on Princess Leia is simply fantastic -it’s creative and stunning. Thanks Jaelle for recognizing this as Padme’s packing dress from Attack of the Clones.

star wars dress

I adore this little geek gal’s cute Star Wars dress.

fat princess leia slave costume

This guy deserves a medal for being the least sexy Slave Leia cosplayer ever.

This ghetto fabulous Star Wars ensemble was done by the nerds who work at Chronicle books. These fabulous people also gave me a Grumpy Cat book later that weekend, which makes them truly fantastic.

DSCN2321 -e

One of the most timely and most creative cosplays of the convention -Sharknado.

the hobit cosplay

Everyone can enjoy a little Hobbit cosplay, even if the hobbit’s feet are way too small.

green mile cosplay

It’s hard not to love a Green Mile cosplay, if only because the person doing the costume has to look so much like the character to start with.

unknown costume

Thank you Molly for recognizing that this is Ink from the movie Ink (and for getting me interested in this movie, it looks amazing).

ghostbusters key master gate keeper cosplay

Are you the Key Master?

hit girl/guy crossplay comic con 2013

Is it still Hit Girl, or should it be Hit Guy instead?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Accio cute Harry Potter fan!

DSCN2383

This pose was just awkward enough to make it ideal for Edward Scissorhands.DSCN2354

This steampunk Shawn of the Dead was particularly clever, though it helped that this guy looks like Simon Pegg.

birds attack

Oh my god! It’s The Birds!

edward and mad hatter

Two Johnney Depp crossplays in one shot -one Mad Hatter and one Edward Scissorhands.

falcor

This Falcor cosplay was seriously amazing. I’m genuinely sorry the picture doesn’t show off the costume as well as it could have.

Video Games:

mario, luigi and princess peach comic con 2013

 It’s not a Comic Con without a Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach in attendance.

luigi in car cosplay

Looks like Waluigi is up to his old Mario Kart tricks again.

DSCN2328

All hail the Dragon Born! This Skyrim cosplay is awesome.

DSCN2338

These two youngsters were great at playing the Blue Fairy and Zelda.

It’s always nice to see Chelle, even without her crazy footwear.

unknown cosplay comic con

Thanks Mike for explaining that this is Sona from League of Legends.

assassins creed

An assassin right outside the Assassin’s Creed ship, how awesome is that?

goblin wow cosplay

This was a bad ass ogre costume based on the WOW race.

unknown cosplay sdcc

It’s possible this awesome demon was just a generic awesome demon, but since he was headed to the Capcom booth, I’m inclined to thing he is from some kind of video game. Jeanie, Amber and Lorelei says it’s probably Illidan from World of Warcraft and I think they’re right.

swimming ninjas sdcc

Why Sub Zero and Scorpion are in floaties, I don’t know, but that you Amanda Miller for helping to identify them.

pac man

Pac-Man’s new series is terrible, but the characters are adorable.

dark stalkers

Morrigan of Darkstalkers was pretty smart -she made her wings retractable so they wouldn’t get in the way of people walking down the aisles.

cat costume comic con

Thank you DMJ for identifying her as Taokaka from the videogame Blazblue.

Cartoons:

adult swim robot chicken

Everyone loves the Robot Chicken, even when he’s accidentally slicing people’s faces apart.

doctor rockso

This is Doctor Rockso. He does cocaine.

carl aqua teen

Carl was there to promot the Adult Swim Fun House, but he didn’t look nearly sweaty enough.

Frylock

It was good to see Frylock, but I really wanted to see Meatwad.

duff man

Cosplayers even go out in their outfits during Comic Con, here’s Duff Man at a real bar.

Zapp Brannigan as a women crossplay sdcc 2013

Nothing like a little bit of Lady Brannigan.

inspector gadget comic con

Think of the Inspector Gadget theme song…now stop thinking about it. You can’t, right?

inuyasha cosplay sdcc

It was nice to see Inuyasha in attendance this year.

naruto demon

This little girl was super proud of her Naruto tailed beast costume, and she had every right to be -it was awesome!

teenage mutant ninja turtles girls crossplay comic con

More like Teenage Mutant Cutie Turtles, amirite?

DSCN2299

This Transformers gal was cool, but the Krang costume was just plain awesome.

DSCN2300

Here’s a close up of Krang. He even smiled for the picture…well, as best as Krang can smile.

ariel wuith fork cosplay

There are always plenty of Little Mermaid costumes, but never any with her fancy dress.

disney princesses

This group of Disney princesses even came with their own princes, well…two of them at least, one girl is going to get left out.

Rapunzel and Flynn rider cosplay

While girls always love playing as princesses, guys don’t tend to go as Disney princes, but they do seem to love being Flynn Rider from Tangled and this couple was particularly cute in the role.

steampunk captain hook and tinkerbelle

Of course, steampunk Captain Hook is always a fun, cool choice as well.

disney fairies

Some of Tinkerbelle’s friends even popped in for a visit.

vanellope cosplay

Who doesn’t love Vanellope Von Schweetz, especially when you can enjoy her in her casual and formal wear?

Sally Nightmare before Christmas

Sally looked particularly impressive with those great 3D stitches on her face.

GI Joe group cosplay comic con

Best G.I. Joe group cosplay ever. In fact, there were more in their group that just didn’t get into the picture.

adventure time group

Let’s face it, real adventurers would wear much more casual clothes…like the ones these guys have on.

adventure time cosplay

There were tons of Adventure Time cosplayers, but this one had the best Princess Bubblegum dress around.

princess bubble gum girl

Here’s a very young Princess Bubblegum out looking for her Finn in shining armor.

awesomeo sdcc

Awesomeo was in attendance, but I couldn’t see Butters anywhere.

Avatar: The Last Air Bender Cosplay

Here’s the only good Avatar: the Last Airbender kind.

unknown anime

Thanks Meru and Irving for pointing out that these two are Toph, dressed in fire Nation clothes, and Princess Yue of the Northern Water Tribe -both from Avatar.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thank you DMJ and Teeni for recognizing that this is Madoka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Arthur from the Tick cosplay comic con

Arthur was ready to help fight crime, but there was none to be seen.

lana archer

Lana Kane here was worried people wouldn’t recognize her without her gun…as if that were the case.

kreiger and Cheryl from Archer cosplay

There were a few Archer costumes at the convention this year, but Krieger and Cheryl Tunt, complete with red marks on her neck, were my favorite.

archer pam

Archer’s Pam, complete with dolphin puppet.

archer villians cosplay

While most people probably just thought this was a guy in a track suit with a hot Communist girl, any Archer fan would immediately recognize Barry Dylan and Katya Kazanova.

fancy dress comic con

Thanks Chibi1120 for recognizing that this is Ciel Phantomhive from Black Butler in his drag outfit.

Other:

dinos have short arms

This guy was out on the floor to help promote his booth, Better Than Pants. They were selling tees that said “If you’re happy and you know it clap your…oh” with a picture of the short-armed t-rex.

Funky Garcia mexican

Even local restaurants got into the cosplay scene. Funky Garcia’s put out this Funky Garcia character to help promote their restaurant.

aliens in la

This gal and her plastic bag dog creature are characters from Aliens in LA, which was promoting its wares at the convention.

aliens in la

Here is another of the wonderfully odd Aliens in LA characters.

demon creepy

This demon costume was seriously bad ass. I’m pretty sure he was just an awesome looking demon, but if he’s from something specific, please let me know.

adorable lolita girls

These cute little Lolita girls were huge fans of the Hello Kitty shop in the Petco Park parking lot.

unicorn lolita

I think she was going as the Last Unicorn, but I simply loved her dress and mask.

pizza ghost

If you aren’t sure what this costume is, that’s because this guy made it up. He is pizza ghost, the ghost of pizza that has been eaten.

pedobear comic con

It looks like Pedobear is finally starting to enjoy the company of adults -I spotted him at a bar this year. Or, maybe he’s just trying to get booze for his teenage girlfriend.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This teenage girls Michael Jackson Thriller costume was bad ass, but she still was surprised when people wanted to take pictures of her in it.medieval cosplayers

There are always Ren Fair recruiters upstairs, so I can’t tell you if these medieval peasants vikings (thanks guys) are part of that or if they just wanted to dress up like this for fun. And thank you Sarah and Andinell for letting me know they are part of the Society for Creative Anachronisms.

fast food fight

Do you think Super Jack could take over the Hamburglar? I like to think the Hamburglar would win, but that’s mostly out of nostalgia.

fancy Edwardian

This Edwardian mother and daughter were quite the fancy family. And thank you Nichole for pointing out that the daughter was playing the little girl from Interview With A Vampire.

Victorian Vampire

Victorian vampire is a great costume for those who love historical costumery, but want a touch of fantasy too.

Queen Elizabeth SDCC

Elizabeth the First at Comic Con 2013? Why not? If the Doctor can travel through time, surely the queen of England can.

cool hat bro

Who says you need a costume when your wife makes awesome hats like this one?

body paint man comic con

This guy has become a regular at the convention, always covered in different crazy body paints.

teddy bear Japanese girl comic con

Who wouldn’t love an adorable bear girl like this?

San Diego comic con weirdo

This delightful weirdo is at the convention every year, sometimes with a massive knife and always running around acting crazy.

workaholics bear coat

You could actually buy this Workaholics coat from the booth behind her.

coors knight at comic con 2013

This delightfully budget costume is known as the Coors Knight.

wastelanders weekend comic con

Yes, they look like they’re from Mad Max, but they’re actually from the Wasteland weekend event based on Mad Max, so they aren’t technically dressed like characters from the movie.
Hello kitty lolita

 This adorable lolita girl found all kinds of fun stuff at the Hello Kitty pop up shop.

bizarro a go go

This lovely clown girl was from the always odd but always fantastic Bizarro Au Go Go booth.

bizarro au go go

If you couldn’t tell from the sign, these two are also from Bizarro Au Go Go.

Odd Parings:

jesus and barroness

For some reason, I really want the Jesus and the Baronness to be friends.

comic con costumes sdcc 2013

The one on the right is Cercei from Game of Thrones, and thanks to Bridget, I also know the other girl is  Izabel from Brian K. Vaughn’s comic “Saga.”

joker and betty draper

It would be a brilliant Mad Men episode that let the Joker just stroll on scene and carve up Betty Draper’s face.

tardis and unknown

I know the girl on the right is The Doctor, and thank you to That Guy for identifying Bastila Shan form Knights of the Old Republic on the left.

shredder and unknown

Obviously the gent on the left is sportting a ghetto Shredder costume, and thanks to Ashley for identifying Chandra, a planeswalker from Magic The Gathering.

centurion and petco star wars pets

The dog and cat were there helping to promote Petco’s new line of Star Wars product and the soldier is one of the Spartans from 300. Certainly an odd group, but they’d be fun to party with.

Loki and minion

A freaky-looking minion with female Loki.

tiny batman and falling skies comic con

 Batman with a girl promoting TNT’s Falling Skies.

bane and jabbas band cosplay

Bane with Max Rebo of Jabba’s house band.

Marceline, Princess Bubblegum and a Blade Runner android work surprisingly well together.

DSCN2431

Slave Princess Leia and Rorschach together at last.

batman and aliens in LA

An Aliens in LA character with Batman.

DSCN2235

I recognize Russell Crowe from South Park and Cat Woman, but thanks Meru for pointing out that the other one is Officer Jenny from Pokemon.

frankenweenie and link

I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see a Frankenweenie/Zelda crossover.

Unknown:

ninja costume

Awesome ninja, but what is he from?

demon from make up school

This demon thing being created by the makeup school was awesome, I just don’t know if it was from something specific or not.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was one of the most mind-bafflingly weird costumes at the convention.

stilts costume comic con

This guy on stilts was amazing, but I don’t know what his costume was.

totally unknown

For some reason, this soldier and Victorian woman look very familiar to me. Do you actally recognize them?

DSCN2403

Hawkgirl is obviously the one on the right, but who is the dog?

game of thrones and unknown

Obviously the two in the middle are Game of Thrones characters, and Amanda Miller recognized the one on the right as Riddick from the Chronicles of Riddick, but who is the one on the left?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I dig this guy’s weird rabbit costume, but is he from anything specific? Victoria might be right that he’s the March Hare. It does sound about right.

unknown elf steampunk

While they may not look like it, I’m pretty sure their costumes are from the same source.

witch doctor unknown

This guy had a cool, creepy witch doctor thing going on, but I certainly didn’t recognize him.

two unknown guys costumes

The gent on the left seems to be from Assassin’s Creed, but I’m not sure about the one on the right. It was wonderful hearing him read from a trashy romance novel though.

Once again, if you recognize any of the costumes from the unknown costumes category, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!
