Easy Cosplay for San Diego Comic Con

Today’s the big day. Pre-registration for San Diego Comic Con 2014 starts in just a couple hours… and ends in a couple of hours and ten minutes, I’d guess. Wish me luck, folks.

One of my favorite things about SDCC is the super-awesome cosplay.

So, in honor of the big day, I found a super-cool tumblr site: My Half Assed Cosplay Ideas

Artist Patrick Dean presents some pretty cool ideas for cosplay using only stuff you’d find around the house, at a flea market, or a thrift shop. Check out the site for all his designs, but below are a few of my favorites: Read the rest of this entry

More San Diego Comic Con Cosplay Photos

I found another lot of cosplay photos on my old hard drive from the 2011 San Diego Comic Con. As we hit the (approximately) six month mark until SDCC 2014, I thought I’d put them up here.

I rearranged the SDCC section of the blog, and added a link there, too. Enjoy!

San Diego Comic Con Masquerade Photos

Comic Con just posted the photos for the entrants in the 2013 Masquerade Ball. You can find them online here.

The annual SDCC Masquerade Ball is where the coplayers bring out the big guns (sometimes literally). For my money, though, here’s the best costume of them all.

Femme Doctor. Worn by Hannah Black. Designed and made by Hannah Black; Parasol and Ascot painted by Jarrnell Williams. Winner of the David C. Copley Prize for the Most Innovative Costume and the Century Guild prize.

Nova Prime is pretty awesome as well:

More San Diego Comic Con Photos: Saturday Afternoon

I just posted the last batch of photos from San Diego Comic Con 2013. This rounds out all the cosplay pictures I have. Next week, I’ll be searching out some of the better photos from my friends’ blogs and post links, for all who are interested.

Enjoy!

SDCC Photos Round 2: Thursday’s Costumes

LOVE the Doom Patrol outfits

Start it off right with the Doom Patrol, people.

Thursday was a light day for costumes. At least it was for me. I spent almost all of Thursday in panels, so I didn’t get out to the floor too much. There are 19 new photos in the SDCC 2013 Gallery, though, for your viewing enjoyment. More to come as I upload and catalog Friday and Saturday’s cosplay collections.

This is, by far, the best costume I saw yesterday at SDCC. I’ll be posting more pictures as I have time. Tons of great costumes here this year.
