50+ Killer Cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con

There’s always great costumes at the SDCC and this year was no exception. Here are some of our favorite cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con.


sdcc constantine cosplay
This Constantine looked spot-on. He even had a bag of tools for the job.
Aquaman lady sdcc
This one is cosplayed by Maggie Marvelous, who is an absolute sweetheart.
Tony loves you 3000
The perfect response to the Christian protesters at the convention. The other side of his sign said “Tony loves you 3000.”
The Batman Joker cosplay
Technically this Joker is from the The Batman animated series, but since he was originally a comic book character, here we are.
Taskmaster and Deadpool
Here’s Taskmaster and Deadpool having a bit of fun.
venom cosplay 2019
Venom sure looks scary with those massive teeth!
juggernaut cosplay
It’s not easy to pull off a good Juggernaut cosplay, but this guy sure did.
female riddler costume
Oddly both Riddlers I saw at the convention were female.


beetlejuice family
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice family cosplay!
Harry Potter cosplay
This young wizard has a promising future.
chewbacca and lady han solo
You can’t have a convention without Star Wars cosplay.
sparkly stormtrooper
It doesn’t get more fabulous than this stormtrooper.
BB-8 dress
Speaking of fabulous, it’s hard not to love this great BB-8 dress.
free throat hugs vader
We already mentioned those Christian protesters, but this Vader is the forgiving type, offering them free throat hugs.
Mad Hatter woman
We’re all mad here, or at least you become crazy after dealing with the crowds.
red queen alice head on pike
When the Queen says “off with her head, she means it!”
escape from la cosplay
Looks like someone escaped from L.A. only to come to sunny San Diego.


steampunk tinkerbelle
Steampunk Tinkerbelle? Yes, please!
Megara from Hercules cosplay
Meg’s dress looked even better here than it did in the movie.
Monster high costumes
I have seen far too few Monster High cosplays.
rainbow brite
There simply aren’t enough Rainbow Brite costumes in this world.
over the garden wall cosplay
This couple looked adorable as the characters from Over the Garden Wall.
troll cosplayers
Don’t have a costume but have a lot of hair spray? Consider going as a Troll doll.

TV Shows

Scoops Ahoy
Easily one of the most popular costumes this year was the Scoop’s Ahoy uniform.
star trek costumes
What do you call a Klingon and Ferengi who go on vacation together? Just another cosplaying couple at the 2019 San Diego Comic Con!
SDCC 2019 game of thones group
Game of Thrones may be over, but there were still tons of cosplayers fighting for the Iron Throne.
Game of thrones gals
These three beauties looked fabulous in their Game of Thrones costumes.
HyperFlesh Prison Mike
Ultra realistic mask-makers HyperFlesh were here to promote their creations with Prison Mike and Dwight masks

Video Games

Minute Man cosplay
I’ve never seen a Minute Man at Comic Con
mass effect
This Mass Effect makeup looked fantastic!
Street Fighter
There’s always a few Chun Lis at the con, but it’s always nice to see a group cosplay.
Kingdom hearts costumes
This is certainly a cute take on the Kingdom Hearts game.
All bow down to Queen Boswer!
Pikachu girl
Pikachu is always adorable and this is no exception.

Others and Groups

Hamilton sdcc 2019 cosplay
Never thought I’d see the day when Broadway made its way to Comic Con, but anything can happen during a 50th anniversary I guess.
Xena and She-Ra
She-Ra and Xena sure look great together, even if they don’t quite fit together in the same universe.
Bob Ross or Bob Ross Pool
How can anyone be sad with Bob Ross around? Especially when he’s decked out for the con with a little Rocket Racoon on his shoulder and a Deadpool mask in his pocket.
Steven Universe and Dude Jedi
Steven Universe and the Jedi Dude certainly look good together.
Prince cosplay
It’s always good to see Prince. RIP.


Here’s your turn to identify all the cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con that I don’t actually recognize!

cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con dragon
This dragon is awesome, but what is he from?
Gregorian dress
Is this Gregorian dress up from something in particular or just another delightful anachronistic dress?
unknown cosplays from the 2019 San Diego Comic Con
I love all the incredible details in this costume -even the ruffles are adorned with skulls, sadly, I don’t know where it’s from!
It cosplay  2019 sdcc
Yes the character on the right is Pennywise, but who is the character on the left with a Joker fish, Thor’s hammer and a Pikachu hat?
unknown genderswap cosplay
This is a fun genderswapped cosplay, but who is he dressed as?
Freddy Mercury and red floral dress
That’s certainly Freddy Mercury on the right, but who is the woman on the left portraying with that gorgeous floral dress and headpiece?
Female Shazaam and pirate
We’ve obviously got a female Shazaam on the left, but I’m not sure about the decidedly pirate-looking lass on the right.
Master Roshi
Many people will undoubtedly recognize Master Roshi from Dragon Ball, but who is the awesomely armored guy beside him?
Dracula and unknown 2019 sdcc
One final group where I recognize one but not the other. We have Bram Stoker’s Dracula on the left, but who is the woman on the right?
Fish lady costume?
She’s got a spear and gills, those should be some big clues!
unkown sdcc 2019 costume
If you like a girl with a big gun, you’ll enjoy this cosplay, but do you recognize it?
glowing monster costume
This costume is seriously epic with its light-up details, but I regret I don’t recognize it.
Cool She-Ra?
This kind of looks like a modern take on She-Ra, but I’m not sure. Can you confirm or deny this?
Cute wizard girl
I love this magical wizard costume, but I don’t recognize it, do you?
BMX cosplay
I’ve been told these two are from a BMX movie, but I don’t know which one. How about you?

Like every year, there are a lot of of cosplays out there and I can’t possibly recognize them all. That’s where you come in! Help me identify the characters in these cosplays and earn bonus points on your Geek Card.


Obviously this is a super creepy clown, but what is he from specifically?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (1)

I admit, I have no clue where this guy is from at all.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (4)

She looks like a Blizzard character, but that’s just a guess. Thank you AGirlNamedMichael and Silvere for pointing out that this is a Blood Elf Paladin from WOW.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (5)

He looks like a cartoon character.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (9)

These two look great together, even if I can’t recognize them.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (12)

Take your time trying to figure out who the one on the right is, Dr. Fate is the one on the left though. Thanks to Steph who explained that the guy next to Dr. Fate is the main character from Persona 5.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (20)

The guy is from Xavier Renegade Angel, but is the gal? Turns out they’re both from Stephen Universe and thanks to Steph I now know this is Jasper and Yellow Diamond.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (23)

On the left is a Gears of War character and Pyramid Head is on the right, who is the girl in the middle though? Thanks Steph and Erin for explaining that this is Rosita from The Walking Dead.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (24)

This lion martial artist looks anything but cowardly, but where is he from?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (25)

This is a Snow White mashup, but what is he mashed up with?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (32)

We’ve got a steampunk Batman on the right, who is on the left though?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (34)

It’s possible this is a genderswapped Peach, but it’s also possible that I am dead wrong about that. I was, unsurprisingly, wrong about who this was and Steph correctly identified him as Giorno Giovanna from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (39)

Who is this mysterious elven maid?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (42)

This costumes are amazing. Does anyone know where they come from?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (43)

Obviously we have Snow White and her prince here, but who is the girl in the middle? Thank you Chris (David) for pointing out that the girl getting between Snow and her prince is Liliana from Magic the Gathering.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (44)

It’s possible the guy on the left is Speedy, but is that for sure, and who are the other two?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (46)

Venom is unmistakable, but who is the masked character on the left?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (53)

This costume is really cool even if I can’t tell you what it is. I actually played Dragon Age 2 and still didn’t recognize Arishok, so thanks once more to Steph!

SDCC 2017 cosplay (56)

This guy’s floating illusion was amazing, still, I don’t recognize his costume. And this is Zenyatta from Overwatch, identified once again thanks to Steph!

SDCC 2017 cosplay (62)

This puppy killer is pure evil, but who is he? Steph says this is Dr. Suchong the BioShock  and I’m inclined to believe her.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (63)

Red Hood is on the left, but who is the kick ass warrior on the right?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (67)

Anyone recognize these two gals?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (79)

I’m guessing these two come from an anime, but which one? This is Franky and Sabo from One Piece, once again identified by Steph.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (84)

Where is this beautiful warrior from? Thank you for isweedan for identifying Dee from the comic Rat Queens.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (94)

This guy looks so futuristic, but what future is he from?

SDCC 2017 cosplay (86)

These costumes look incredible, help me place them.

SDCC 2017 cosplay (104)

She’s pretty unmistakable -if you’re actually familiar with the character, which I’m not. This one is a genderswapped Junkrat from Overwatch, identified by Steph.


This guy looks like a post-apocalyptic Waldo, but he’s missing the trademark glasses and cane, so I could be wrong. According to Michael, this is a Where’s Waldo/Walter White mashup. Personally, I think he needs either a pork pie or stripped knitted cap if he really wanted to make this one obvious.

Like these pics? Then don’t miss out on seeing our past cosplay pictures from Comic Con 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 as well as hot ladies at Comic Con from 2016, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2008, the hot guys from2016, 2012 and 2011 (there just aren’t as many most years) and both genders from 2015 and 2017. I also have pictures from WonderCon 2014 and 2013.

Comic Books:

avengers dresses sdcc 2013

This was a great take on The Avengers. Hopefully next year they’ll return with even more members of the team.

hawk eye

To do this pose, Hawkeye had to promise someone else that the arrows weren’t actually functional.

thor cosplay comic con

Just about every Avenger was found somewhere around the convention. Here’s Thor…

lady captain america
And here’s one of the many lady Captain Americas.

captain americas

And here was a female and male version of America’s greatest hero.

red skull comic con

Amazingly, with all those Captain Americas around, Red Skull was still able to cruise around undeterred.

unknown costumes 2013

Thanks Brad for identifying these two as Hope Summers and Cable.

she hulk

This She-Hulk was simply beautiful…

Modern wonder woman cosplay comic con

As was this Wonder Woman.

wonder woman dog

But I think my favorite hero of the weekend was this Wonder Woman.

wonder woman and super man

It was nice to see Wonder Woman and Super Man together…

superman cat woman

But a little strange to see him spending time with Cat Woman, even if she is hot.

Cat woman and wolverine comic con sdcc

Cat Woman was all over the convention, even hanging out with Wolverine.

sexy mystique

Here’s a sexy looking-Mystique.

creepy mystique sdcc 2013

Although, I must say that I’ve always found her much more sexy in this form.

magnito at comic con

Magneto always looks bad ass.

rogue sdcc 2013

I asked Rogue if she died her hair just for this costume and she told me that she always wears it like this.

wolverine sdcc 2013

It’s always nice to see someone in Logan’s X-Men costume -even if it’s looking a bit Fett.

On the left is a very sexy Psylocke, and thank you Brad for letting me know that Fantomex is the one on the right.

Two Punishers, one of which is beyond sexy.


Everyone loves a good Silk Spectre.

I can’t tell you how rare it is to see a Robin costume that doesn’t look a bit cheesy and Raven looked quite nice as well.

Gotham villians group SDCC

It’s the Gotham bunch!

crazy harley quinn

There were so many Harleys this year, both in the new…

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that, Harley is awesome.

Harley Quinn and female Penguin

Whether she’s with the Penguin…

harley and joker asylum style

harley and creeper comic con

or getting kidnapped by The Creeper…

Harley batman and riddler SDCC 2013

or helping the Riddler take on Batman, Harley is always up for a good time.

batgirl steampunk

Of course, I never saw steampunk Batgirl get in such a predicament.

hellboy girl

I always find female Hellboys to be quite a bit of fun.

hell boy nazi

Of course, it’s also nice to see him kicking ass.


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.

axe cops

Technically, these Axe Cops were there to promote the new show, but it’s still a comic book to me.

sponge bob

Thanks to Josh for letting me know this is Negan from the Walking Dead comics posing with Sponge Bob.



Red and Fozzie were having a ball taking pictures with kids.

don and betty

Don and Betty looked fabulously annoyed with each other as always.

hook sexy

If I did a sexy men of Comic Con post again this year, Hook would certainly be in it.

The best thing about this Once Upon A Time cosplay is that the girls actually look like the actresses.

dick in a box

It’s a dick in a box, what more could you want?

tobias funke crossplay

Someone just blew herself.

He was certainly based on the TV Arrow and not the comic.

And this group managed to dress up together.

wolf costume comic con

Going as dead Rob Stark, that’s dark. I like it! Thanks Fleight.

It was hard to beat this Walking Dead group in team cosplay. I particularly like the Merle, which is done played by Jason Baker, aka SD Costume Guy.

star trek dress

This woman not only had an awesome Star Trek dress, but she also turned her walker into the Star Ship Enterprise.

trekie tribble

I’m always a fan of a Trekie with a tribble.

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.

clara oswin

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.

black lady doctor who crossplay 2013

It’s also fabulous to see a black, female Doctor, something I’d love to see on the actual show.

tardis and doctor comic con

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

doctor lady

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

And there’s something about River that makes her really sexy…I think it’s the outfit.

kaylee and dalek

Here’s a cute combo, a lady Dalek and Kaylee.

mal sdcc 2013 firefly serenity

This Mal costume was pretty fantastic.

mal crossplay and jayne firefly comic con

But I’m always a sucker for female Mals, especially with Jaynes by their side.

This guy on stilts was amazing. Everyone seems to agree that he is Scorpius from Farscape and I haven’t seen anything else remotely close, so I’ll stick with that.

I absolutely loved getting to see Lt. Dangle in person.

shaman mighty boosh

And It was fantastic getting to see Naboo!

I’ve never seen a drag queen Power Ranger before, but it was pretty awesome.

sherlock cosplay


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

battlestar galactica

There were so many Battle Star fans. It turns out that’s because they were holding an anniverssary special panel this year.


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.


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?


Accio cute Harry Potter fan!


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


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.


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.

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.


adult swim robot chicken

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

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.

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?


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


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.


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.


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.


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.

An Aliens in LA character with Batman.


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.


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.



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

totally unknown

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


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?


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

Thank you Kira for pointing out that the gal on the left is from Steam Powered Giraffe. And thank you to Benjamin for letting me know that the elf is probably an elf from the Legend of Drizzt.

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!

Over 200 Great Comic Con Costumes From 2012

Comic Con has finally came and went, which means it’s time for my favorite annual post, a round up of the many, many great costumes from the convention. As if getting to geek out on over 200 great cosplayer’s outfits wasn’t enough for you, I’m also hosting a contest for those who can help me name all the characters I couldn’t label myself. For more details on that, head to the bottom of the post, because first, here are the costumes!


Have you ever wondered what would happen to Gotham when Batman just gives up? Well, thanks to, now you know. You also can know that this was one of the most fun costumes I saw at the convention.

Obviously, this is what happens when a Ren faire collides with the DC Universe, but do any of you know for sure who the gal in the middle is? I think she’s Harley, but I could be wrong.

Here’s Nightwing squaring off against Harley Quinn and Catwoman. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to get hit by that comically large mallet.

And here’s a whole array of Batman villains (with poor Harley trailing behind because her heels were just too high). But why is Robin posing so proudly with the bad guys?

Here’s little Harley Quinn and Joker when they’re on good terms.

And here’s what happens when Harley screws up and fails to kill Batman.

Here’s what happens when Scarecrow’s gas somehow turns Harley into a man but it has no affect on Duela Dent.

Surprisingly, she wasn’t the only Duela around.

If you prefer more modern female Jokers, how does this nurse suit your taste?

Here’s the male version of Heath’s interpretation.

And here’s what happens when Joker and Scarecrow get dressed up for a night on the town.

One of the most popular girl costumes this year was Harley Quinn, and it makes sense, she’s adorable, sexy and batshit crazy, a few things every gal can relate with.

Of course, the girls that emphasized adorable over sexy tended to stick with the more classic version of her costume.

There were also plenty of Poison Ivys looking dreadfully sexy.

This Riddler made a great case for Mr. Nigma to be recast as a black man in the character’s next incarnation, just like Spider-Man and Nick Fury.

Of course, not every Batman fan went as a villain or a retiree. There were plenty of heroes in the house.

And don’t worry sexy ladies who want to play in Gotham, you also can choose to play as heroes, like this lovely Batwoman.

Black Widow, Nick Fury and Spider-Man might not ordinarily work on the same team, but they certainly look good together.

While there were tons of girls crossplaying as their favorite Avengers characters, this was the only male Black Widow I came across.

Most gender-swaped Avengers characters just feminized the costume a little bit, but I was particularly fond of this girl’s interpretation of Captain America, complete with an umbrella in place of a shield.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with the more common types of Captain America crossplay. In fact, I’d say she looked pretty good.

This crossplayed Thor could stop a man with her cleavage just as fast as she could with her hammer. Dizzam!

On the more adorable side of gender-swapping, this poor thing was so tiny that she looked wobbly trying to walk around with that giant helmet on.

If you prefer your characters to bear their traditional gender identities and looks though, then you’d certainly appreciate this Hemidall, the Guardian of Asgard.

While there are always plenty of X-Men, this year the number was down a bit because so many more people went as Avengers or Dark Knight characters. This Magneto, Storm and Emma Frost all looked great though.

Also, it was a treat to see someone actually dress up as Wolverine in his costume (even if it was a goofy cross over costume mixed with a bit of Star Wars -thanks Sasha) since most cosplayers prefer just going as Logan with his claws out.

This Punisher costume looked pretty good, but it would have been a bit more convincing if he shaved.

While there weren’t too many other Watchmen costumes, the gals just seem to love this classic Silk Spectre look. And who can blame them? It’s both incredibly sexy and classy.

This was one of my favorite comic book couple’s costume: Louis and Clark!

Of course, Supergirl is also a popular costume choice with girls.

So is Wonder Woman, for that matter, although not that many guys want to be Robin, unless Batman is already taken.

This was the first black Wonder Woman I’ve seen, but I sincerely hope she’s not the last because she looked awesome.

While Hawkman’s costume is notably more awesome than Aquaman’s, it is worth noting that at least Aquaman was able to use his conch as a horn, something not many people have mastered.

Personally, I loved seeing this great Red Mist costume, even if the cosplayer was a little older than the character in Kickass.

Surprisingly, while the Ninja Turtles are pretty big news right now what with Michael Bay destroying them, there was only one Shredder costume. That being said, at least it was seriously awesome.

It might not be immediately obvious, but these two were both dressed as The Rocketeer.


For all I know, this could be a fake superhero.Thanks Arjay for letting me know this is Dr. Mid-Nite,

The skelanimals are adorable, but who is this lady? It looks like Black Canary and thanks Arjay for confirming that.


Thanks Doctor Wholittle for explaining that this is actually The Vigilante, not the Lone Ranger!


Thanks Jackie for explaining that these two are Mindfang and Redglare from Homestuck.

Sci Fi:

While there were tons of Doctor Who costumes this year, this pair was by far my favorite. How can you possibly beat a tiny weeping angel and a tiny Doctor?

This was definitely my second favorite Who costume as it involved K9 and I’m a sucker for that robotic dog.

As far as couple costumes from Doctor Who, this one was my favorite, because I particularly love this episode and I think David Tennant is still the best Doctor ever.

This Tom Baker Doctor with River Song was also pretty good.

Of course, if you want to go as Amy, it’s always best to wear her Kiss-o-gram costume.

If you’re looking to make your Doctor costume stand out, turning Matt Smith into a zombie is always a good option.

Another good tool to make yourself stand out is to have some nice props. That being said, carrying a TARDIS around all day does not sound fun to me.

On the other hand, a duo dressed as the TARDIS and a dalek is always memorable.

While the TARDIS dress is pretty over done these days, I was still a big fan of this gal’s.

While this was a somewhat odd pairing, it also somehow makes sense for Jayne to steal his own TARDIS.

Speaking of Firefly, here’s the whole ship’s crew. See the female Mal there on the left? Yeah, that’s me.

I wasn’t the only female Mal at the con though (although I did seem to be the only one to make the look really feminine).

Of course, you can’t have a Comic Con without Star Wars cosplayers and these three made a particularly cute trio.

Here’s the world’s most ghetto R2D2 and C3Po.

Pimp Vader is always at Comic Con, but his costume never gets less amusing.

I was a big fan of this vacationing storm trooper though.

Of course, there were some more traditional Star Wars costumes as well. Impressively, this gentleman just ran a race in this outfit as part of the Course of the Force.

This Obi-Wan and Han made a good duo.

There were plenty of non-specific Jedis though.

Somehow, the Jedi look just works for ladies.

Here’s one I’m pretty sure is from Star Wars, but I don’t know the character name. Do you?

There were Trekkies too, of course.

And a good band of Klingons.

While there are always plenty of Leeloos from The Fifth Element, seeing a Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg is much more exciting. Great job Chris Vick!

Is it just me or is Leeloo way too hot for Shaun (of the Dead)? Thank you Emily for pointing out that this is actually Korben Dallas, also from Fifth Element. I didn’t remember his button up shirt look.

There were tons of Martys this year as well, but I only saw one Doc Brown. I’ve never actually seen one of the ladies from Back to the Future.

Funny enough, I did not ask Doc or Marty to do this pose.

Movies/TV Shows:

There are always plenty of Ghostbusters at the convention, but seeing one with Dana was pretty darn awesome -especially since her shoes make her look like she’s levitating.

Even without Dana though, it is still a pretty cool costume.

I was a little surprised and saddened not to see any hobbit costumes this year, but this girl did have a lovely Arwen dress.

This Katniss costume was a great interpretation of the Hunger Games character.

Although when it comes to fighting, I’d rather have Blade on my side any day.

Seeing Alice and a Hatter is nothing special, but with this many Hatters in tow, one woman actually remarked “I feel like I’m actually in Wonderland.”

Despite the fact that no one was really big on the Sucker Punch, Babydoll costumes are still really popular because they’re just so sexy.

This would be a great Edward Scissorhands costume -if he actually had the hands. As he is now, he’s just Edward Hands, which doesn’t have the same ring to it.

This Mad Max-esque guy was actually promoting the Mad Max weekend they have out in the desert every year. It sounds really fun, except for the whole desert part.

I had to take this photo fast as Mr. Funke from Arrested Development was eagerly awaiting a call from the Blue Men.

No, these guys weren’t actually offering water to thirsty attendees, they were actually paying homage to the short-lived but wonderful Party Down.

If you were wondering if these were, in fact, the Martians from The Muppets, the answer is “yup yup yup yup.”

It was by pure luck that I happened to catch this Tron character next to a motorcycle. It may not be a lightcycle, but it’s still darn cool.

While many of you still may not have seen Legend of the Fist, I highly recommend checking it out. As a bonus, you’ll also be able to recognize this costume after that.

Thanks Chris Vick for letting me know this is Victor Crowley from Hatchet 1 & 2.

Since the Lone Ranger movie is finally going to come out soon, there were a few Lone Rangers this year.

Gooble was a little sad when I told him I didn’t have the money to buy his Yo Gabba Gabba plushie.

I have to say these are my favorite cosplayers of those that I couldn’t recognize their costumes. Thank you to Jenny Cotter for letting everyone know that these lovely ladies are Scorpion and Painted Doll from The Devil’s Carnival.

Here’s someone I never thought I’d see at Comic Con –Snooki!

So technically, Flo isn’t from a TV show, but considering you see her just about every time you watch TV, I think she counts anyway.


I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Powdered Toast Man at Comic Con. In fact, I’m disappointed that I haven’t seen him up until now.

Here’s another cartoon character that couldn’t be more perfect for Comic Con, it’s Mysterion from South Park.

Adventure Time was really popular at the con this year, but I think this is by far the sexiest Lumpy Space Princess I’ve seen yet.

Adventure Time is particularly special as they are one of the only shows that created their own gender-swapped characters. Here’s Fionna & Cake enjoying the convention.

I really loved seeing Louise from Bob’s Burgers since she’s my favorite character on the show.

Venture Bros. fans always love to see Doctor Girlfriend on the floor.

Personally though, I prefer seeing Doctor Girlfriend in her Monarch uniform.

While there are always plenty of Ariels, I particularly liked this one as she somehow looked like I would imagine a real mermaid actually looks.

With a body like this, Malificent certainly could have ended up in the hotties article instead of this one. That being said, she kept making delightfully evil faces that distorted her beauty to better resemble the evil queen.

Here we have Aladdin and Cinderella, but who is the winged gent? Thanks Sara, this is Rumble, one of Tinkerbell’s friends.

This Shipwreck costume was pretty spot on.

Cheetor’s costume was pretty fun, even if it wasn’t the fanciest.

Similarly, Captain Caveman might not have looked perfect, but he was still freaking awesome!

Master Roshi’s costume was pretty good though, other than the fact that the bald cap seemed to have problems staying down.

Even as a large, bald man, Shippo is still pretty hard to resist with that cute fluffy tail.

Here’s Haruko Haruhara and Canti from FLCL.

These guys would work in a comic, anime or game. Do you recognize them? Thanks Amy for explaining that these guys are Amon and two Chi Blockers from he Legend of Korra.

Thank you Fuzzy for pointing out that these two are Mami and Kyoto from Madoka Magica.

I’m thinking she’s from an anime series, but I’m still not sure. Thanks Patricia for letting me know this is Mei from Avatar the Last Airbender.

Here’s Chibi Prussia, Chibitalia, and Chibi England fom Hetalia -thanks Stephanie, I never would have got these without you!

Are these just lolitas or are they from something? Well, the one on the left is supposed to be Fluttershy from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (thank you Marcia for filling me in on that one) and I believe the other one is Cherries Jubilee.

Thanks to Marcia for explaining that this is Princess Luna from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.


I tell you, I tell you the Dragonborn Comes. In fact, there he is.

If you prefer more futuristic FPS, then mayhaps you’ll appreciate this Tali from Mass Effect.

It’s always a good idea to be cautious when Umbrella Corp. is around.

Of course, Giovanni Auditore da Firenze from Assassin’s Creed is also a pretty dangerous fellow, so stay on his good side.

I don’t know about you guys, but I love that Sanrio and Street Fighter are pairing up and Hello Kitty Chun-Li is freaking adorable.

While Cami always looks pretty hot, it’s rare to see Sagat looking so good. My bad, it’s actually M. Bison. Thanks Steven.

Raiden’s look was pretty intimidating though.

Now I’m pretty sure this is Felicia from Darkstalkers, but if you know it’s someone else, let me know in the comments.

On the other hand, I know for sure that this is Princess Peach and Luigi.

This Sonic costume was great, but considering he was actually working for SEGA, I would expect no less.

Now this girl is certainly an Alliance character, but if you have more details on the character, let me know in the comments.

Other Costumes:

This one could almost fit in the category above, but given that The Guild revolves around an imaginary MMO, I’m gonna have to leave Codex here.

This guy was part of the street team promoting the Dawn of the Con Party at Petco Park.

Here’s another stilt walker promoting the party.

This Edwardian costume was simply gorgeous.

This mask was awesome, but I can’t imagine actually trying to breathe through it.

While few steampunk outfits actually look comfortable, at least this one looks manageable.

An angry Jack with Deadmaus? Why not?

And who can resist such a lovely lolita dress?

This lolita was even a bunny as well.

Odd Costume Groups:

Mario, Black Canary and Cutter might not seem to work well together, but I bet they could star in a pretty sweet video game together.

See, I could see Batman hanging out with Silk Spectre, but what’s with the random, stereotypical Mexican dude?

Deadmaus seems to enjoy hanging out with random characters, for example, Edward Scissorhands.

Here’s a bit of eye candy for both of the sexes, a sexy Darth paired with Ranbo.

Apparently, sexy Darth Vader gets around. Here she is flirting with Marty McFly. Still, at least it’s not his mother.

I wonder what Hawkman thinks of Effie’s lottery.

Powergirl and Dread Pirate Roberts might not make sense together, but their costumes sure look right when next to each other.


Here I am as Mal again, this time partnered with Domino, which again makes no sense.

Personally, I never noticed how well Wonder Woman’s outfit matches the Pope’s robes.

The great thing about taking this photo with Princess Leias, a sexy Imperial captain and Batman is that when I asked Batman if he wanted to get in the picture, he responded, “you don’t have to ask me twice” and jumped next to Leia.

Obviously, you’ll immediately recognize the Goblin King and Waldo, but if you’re wondering why the other girl gets in the gallery, it’s because her dress is actually made from Spider-Man fabric. It might not technically be a costume, but it’s close enough to get in here.

The real question about this pairing isn’t why would these two hang out together, but is this really happening or is it all just part of Babydoll’s fantasy?

Earthworm Jim and Iron Man? I would so see that movie, or play that game, or read that comic. Whatever, just put them together somewhere.

I wonder if any Hogwarts gals actually wear lolita clothes when they aren’t in school.

One more odd couple, here’s Goku with Poison Ivy. Why? Because they can.

I love the female Chewbacca costume, and thank you Nina for explaining that the other gal is a female Ramna from Ramna 1/2.

On the left we have Captain Marvel, but who is the female? and thank you Michael Sean for letting me know the girl on the right is Emma Peel from TV’s The Avengers.


Congratulations to our contest winner, Marcia, who won a Paranorman toothbrush that looks just like this:

Who is this pirate?

Is this Blade or Morpheus or someone else altogether? His hair and glasses say Blade, but his outfit says Morpheus.

I know the middle guy is Master Chief, but who are the demony women?

Here we have Iron Man and I don’t know, maybe a G.I. Joe character.

What about him?

Are these two an odd pairing or do they actually fit together?

Where is this couple from?

No idea here either.

I’m just guessing this character is evil, but I have no idea.

The clothes almost look like Han Solo, but the gun and goggles certainly aren’t. So who is she?

That’s it for this year kids, but if you can’t get enough, here are my cosplay collections from 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.  You might also enjoy these sexy gals from 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2008 or these sexy studs from 2012 and 2011.
