San Diego Comic Con International 2014 – The Cosplay

Hey everyone, having returned from Comic-Con for a few days I’m hunkering down to put up the mega picture-posts, as per last year. This was my first year going as a member of the press so I did have more opportunities to be up close to the cool stuff. Major thanks to my parents for structuring our family vacation around Comic-Con again this year and am really glad that my brother could join us too.

THE COSPLAY

One of the undeniable highlights of Comic-Con is seeing pure dedication on display in the form of fans dressing up as and embodying their favourite characters. I have serious “fear of missing out” (FOMO) when it comes to cosplays at conventions and of course there is no way one would able to see it all, but I am really glad I got to witness some awesome/cool/cute/beguiling ones this year! I brought along props – a Batman custom action figure, a Selina Kyle one and a Captain Jack Harkness figure. Thanks to everyone who obliged my request to pose with the figures!

The first cosplayer I took a photo of at the convention! Thanks Ms. Nygma! 

This Fall on ABC Family: Bucky, Nat and the silly Singaporean geek.

One seriously cool family. Does that mean their son calls the shots? 
A comedy of terrors and high-caliber fourth wall breakage!

I regret I wasn’t able to get Captain Jack out in time for this River Song cosplayer to pose with.

Lots and lots of  great Tardis dresses!

Yoo hoo! And the prize for best dad of the Con goes to this gentleman.

Shhhhh

The nametag says “Doctor Hu”. It is his real surname.

“Get off my plane!” That’s the right Gary Oldman movie, yes?

“Judge Dredd wants YOU to Kickstarter that darn sequel”

The Blues Brothers 2014 beat the Blues Brothers 2000 any day of the week

At this point in his career, Dick Grayson is still quite affectionate towards his guardian/mentor.

Four times the Marvel loveliness!

She’ll be shooting for her own hand, thank you very much!

The Arkham Knight Harley outfit is probably my favourite from all the Arkham games so far.

Old-school Lara, complete with red-tinted sunglasses!

Bombshell Harley, gotta love that Bomber jacket!

They can show you the world…and some great abs!

Queen of the Sea! Now all she needs is Guy!Mera.

Hammer…sickle…Red Son Harley Quinn? Awesome!

Kickin’ it old school with Wonder Woman and Superman

Rule 63 Damian Wayne Robin

The frost detailing on the hoodie is very nice.

Male-ficent. Geddit?

Gotta love the severed Sentinel head/shield

Jay and Silent Bob in the midst of striking back.

Something to crow about.

In which I attempt to outrun the Flash while all Iron Man has to do is look ridiculously cool.
This is not the Trinity you’re looking for, but I’m not complaining.

Conan the crimson Cimmerian!

Tanks for the memories!

I believe this demonologist/master of the dark arts was hired to help entertain us waiting in line for the Constantine dome screen experience.

Quiet on the set!

Just a nice sweet Gwen Stacy cosplay…until you notice the blood dripping from her nose. Oh snap, that’s dark!

A delightfully goofy 11th Doctor!

Hawkgirl’s wings were nice and fluffy!

Atomica ahoy!

This here is one Talon-ted cosplayer!

Love that spiffy-looking TARDIS!

Clark off to save the world/cover a story. 

You know nothing, Jon Snow. Thor’s a woman now!

I didn’t know Gobber was Hiccup’s optician too!

The renowned Hannah and Hilly Hindi of the Hillywood show ham it up with tiny Jack!

Lotsa lotsa Elsas this year!

Death and Deadpool…these two didn’t actually know each other but I thought they did and asked them to stand together.

I feel a sudden wave of pity for Chow Yun Fat’s Hollywood career now.

I for one hope these guys were successful on their road trip.
Mr. J wasted no time in getting right to torturing the Bat. Harley approves.

The craziest and the last…and me!

Let’s cook! “Bottom. hee-hee-hee.”

Disclaimer: this moment in no way represents my real life. Back to my lonely corner to curl up and weep for a while, bye! 

This wonderful Maleficent let me hang on the staff. I exclaimed “I know wield the power of Diaval!” She replied “tsk, tsk, only I do.”

FABULOUS!

Diaval says SCREEE!

Ow…great job on that makeup sir. At least I hope it’s makeup.

It’s great seeing how all the different Doctors react to lil Jack.

Purple and blue!

Red and Red team up to take on mini-Batman. And the best part?The Poison Ivy cosplayer’s first name is actually – wait for it – Pamela!

Castiel on a wing and prayer. 

If it bleeds, they can kill it!

Love how plush those fabrics are, Anna!

May the odds (of finding a seat in Hall H) ever be in your favour.

Okay, so this Catwoman is just utterly gorgeous.

A healthy serving of classic Who and some 12! They appear thoroughly nonplussed about Jack.

My brother is much more of a photography expert than I am, and wasn’t locked up in panels as much so he could take in more cosplay. Here are selections from Tedd’s camera! 
Let the Wookiee win, Tedd!

Regina Rabbit?

Glad Rapunzel got some love, seeing as how it’s clearly Frozen that’s in vogue this year!
