Darlings, San Diego Comic Con has come and gone for another year. If you were there, I assume you’re safely back home, filing your delightful new finds away and trying to find a use for that giant Comic-Con giveaway bag (perhaps you’ll upcycle it into a lovely dress like these ladies?).
If you weren’t part of the fortunate 130,000 who attended this year, it’s never too early to start planning for next year! Until then, here’s a little slide show of 30 great costumes I loved this year. Enjoy, and hope to see you in 2013!
UPDATE: Thanks so much to Nomad Dive Bomber for stopping by and identifying his picture in the gallery below! He seems pretty cool, so you should maybe check out his band sometime, darlings.
– I Come To Trade My Flesh for Stone: The Face of Medusa
– Thinking Costume: Jessica Rabbit, Original Ginger

What did you wear?
Still working up the pictures, but here’s one of mine. 🙂
That hair color’s awesome.
Thanks, Mike! I think I have a few more up on g+ with that color – it’s a good one. 😉
Oh how fun! This is on my list of “must go there’s”! Fingers crossed for next year…
It has been a hard ticket to get the last few years, but even just coming to people watch and go to to the evening events is really a great time. 🙂
Love the maid and Stewie, lol!
There were so many great costumes at Comic-Con this year, but that was one of my favorites! 🙂
That is some really nice photography. Well done!
Thanks, BDW. I had my minions take some of them. The bad ones, actually. 😉
Great Photography, the costumes look fantastic! I’ve always wanted to go to a comic con, haven’t had the chance yet. Just wondering, the blue masks in the top image are they supposed to be skulls or zombies? Either way, the masks are amazing!
Thanks, Black Calavera! They are actually aliens, from the John Carpenter movie “They Live” (1988). If you haven’t has a chance to see it, it’s really a classic of 80’s cult horror, with a heavy emphasis on dark humor and anti-consumerism.
