At almost any comic book convention you go to, you will see 200 Batmans, 300 Spider-Mans, 100 Catwomans, and don’t even get started on the Doctor Who clones.
However, some patrons have their own sense of style, a unique way to express themselves that transcends your average con goer in both big and small ways.
At Comicpalooza held May 24th – May 26th, some fans did just that. They swerved from the norm and showed their own nerdy fashion sense.
Although the move ‘The Spirit’, directed by Frank Miller, wasn’t something to write home about, this con goers outfit is Eisneriffic. This patron said he din’t have the resources for a fancy outfit, but his subtle costume was still the only one that was spotted at the con.
Exterim…Hello, little girl
Although raised on the planet Skaro , and declares death to all other life forms, this mechanically encased mutant seems to have some kind of manners. Figure he’s a Texas Dalek ?
Princess Peach in the house
Princess Peach from the Mario video game franchise makes an appearance. Although not guarded by Mario or harassed by Donkey Kong or Bowser, she seems to be okay.
Although not nearly as unclothed as her anime counterpart, this con-goer, none the less, is showing some originality. Although Final Fantasy and Naruto characters seem to dominate every con, this outfit was a one-of-a-kind.
Victorian Green Lantern
Although steam punk and comic book characters are often combined at cons,very rarely is it done in a subtle and elegant way. This con goer shows that mash ups can be done with style and class.
Okay, just because he’s a super-villain with photo graphic reflexes doesn’t mean he gets a lot of attention as a costume, at least in the Texas area. In the realm of comics, he not only fights Captain America, Daredevil, The Punisher and the like, he trains other bad guys and their henchmen to do so .
Costumed as Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this con goer risks heat and mobility issues to bring a truly unique look to the con. All he needs are his brothers and a gatorade.
Although you can find your average neighborhood Spider-fan in red and blue, or a Spider Woman in red and yellow, these folks buck the trend. Coming as “Iron Spider-Man” and as the Julia Carpenter Spider-Woman proves to be unique outfits at the con.
A man called Nova
Showing up as the character Nova, from the Marvel Comics series, this gentleman is another original. The costume had a helmet, shoulder blades, armored gauntlets and gold belt. His idea to come a the Richard Rider character was a good one.
