This past weekend, Comic Con 2015 took place in San Diego. The 45th annual comic book, entertainment and serial killer convention drew some of the biggest crowds in the history of the event, with attendance reportedly topping over 130,000 people. Some of the highlights of this event included the unveiling of the first trailer of the Superman vs Batman movie coming out in the summer of 2016, hype-up events for the release of the newest Star Wars movie this coming Christmas, and the first time most of the male attendees got to see a real-life girl in person. However, in what has become somewhat of a tradition, the most exciting part of the convention is undoubtedly the “cosplay”, or when visitors come to the event dressed up as their favorite characters from various movies, TV shows and comic books. Some of these outfits are relatively tame, and some of the outfits make you ever leaving your home again out of fear of seeing these people on the streets. Here are the best costumes from Comic Con 2015.
I would love to hear this guy’s inner monologue right before leaving his house in this outfit. “Dave, you got this. Everyone is going to love your giant microphone outfit. It doesn’t matter that this costume isn’t from any TV show or movie. Everyone loves microphones!” I can only assume it took him 45 minutes to get out of the door because there is a 0% chance he can see anything in that costume. In fact, I really hope he drove a car to the convention just so I could have seen the horrified looks on other people’s faces as he made his way to the convention center.
This should be illegal. I don’t know what law or statute needs to be passed to make it happen, but this should not be allowed to happen in the United States, or anywhere for that matter. I’m all for freedom of speech, but I’m not all for hairy grown men dressing up as giant bees shirtless while holding skulls. Sorry if that offends some people. Also if anyone could explain to me what this guy is supposed to be it would be much appreciated. For the time being, I will just call him “Legitimately Schizophrenic Man”.
I can only imagine that both of these guys wanted to be Batman, but the one on the right finally won out. Their conversation probably went something like, “Alright Jerry it would look stupid if we both went as Batman to this thing, so you tie this black shirt around your face and hold these two PVC pipes and we will be the talk of the town”.
Come on man! What the hell!? What is this? You can’t possibly think that this is cool, right? You look like a throw pillow with a crown on top of it. Either I am way out of touch with comic book characters, or “Discount Carpet Sale Man” has made a comeback! (Disclaimer: There has, to my knowledge, never been a super hero named “Discount Carpet Sale Man”).
Honestly, this one is pretty shocking. I mean I know Comic Con: San Diego is a big deal, but I never thought that Goku himself would actually show up. The fact that he took time out of his busy day saving the universe and searching for Dragon Balls to come hang out with fans in San Diego really tells you something about his character. What a great guy.
You could not pay me all the money in the world to do this. It doesn’t matter how in love you are with a girl, you just can’t do this (assuming the girl wanted the guy to do this, which is a horrible assumption). I think I would sooner go streaking at my child’s baptism than dress up like a giant mouse in public. This is the worst.
It’s really a shame these people didn’t dress up for the convention. You can just tell that they are huge fans, but lack the confidence to bust out their favorite costumes. What a shame. Oh, what’s that? You’re saying the girl inexplicably has a 1920’s era scuba diving helmet on? Of course! Why not! But actually, when you are dressed like this and you look like one of the more normal people around you, you may want to reconsider your friend choices. I’m so done with this.
Well, this has been equal parts terrifying and hilarious. Hopefully you can make it out to Comic Con 2016, and if not, you’ll probably live to see another year.
