We take a look at the newest offering from Wizard World and open our very own Comic Con Box!
San Diego Comic-Con is just about the only time of year when a man can walk a city's streets while screaming, "cling tenaciously to my buttocks" and nobody finds that alarming.
2. Guardians of Booth 2380
An even better costume was just off-camera, as my friend Doug went as "Guy Who Still Stubbornly Pretends He Didn't Love Guardians of the Galaxy Like Everyone Else."
3. Lost and Found
I enjoyed this costume so much that I had to share it with everyone. So, I ran up to the nearest police officer, screaming, "Lost Boy! Lost Boy!"
After two hours of lockdown, I realized that phrase means something much different to the law enforcement community.
4. Who-per Mario Bros.
Why do a Dr. Who / Super Mario Bros. crossover? Because. This is Comic-Con.
5. Keeping the Con Classy
I'm pretty sure this girl puts more time and effort into her appearance for one day than I've put in for the past three months combined.
6. Arch Nemesis of She-Woman
"Honey, when you grow up, you can be anything you want to be."
"I wanna be Skeletor!!"
"Hmm... Not what I meant."
7. Snootchie Bootchies
I asked this guy if I could take his photo. He shrugged and stared back at me. I'm pretty sure that's a "yes" in Silent Bob speak.
8. Time for a Sugar Rush
This Wreck it Ralph cosplay was so authentic, after taking this photo, Vanellope glitched herself right over to the other side of the Comic-Con lobby!
Well, I guess technically she ran off to escape the stench protruding from the exhibit hall, but still...
9. Something Strange in My Neighborhood
You know, I've been saying for years that Craigslist needs to add a "Keymaster Seeking Gatekeeper" section.
10. He's Our Hero
I was unimpressed after meeting Captain Planet. When they said he was "gonna take pollution down to zero," I thought that involved more than just handing me his Slurpee cup and saying, "Can you throw this out for me, brah?"
11. Hammering it Home
I originally wasn't going to take Harley's photo, but when a girl's got a mallet like that, you can't say no.
True to form, no metaphors went over this guy's head during Comic-Con weekend. His reflexes were too fast and he caught all of them.
13. My Free Swag Senses are Tingling
I have to admit, it's much harder taking Spider-Man seriously as a hero anymore now that I've seen him waiting in line for the latest Lego Star Wars set.
14. Enjoy Your Nightmares, Kids!
I brought my nephew out to meet this guy while in San Diego. I figure if I can't terrify him for at least a few weeks, then I'm not doing my duty as an uncle.
15. I am Groot.
I am Groot.
16. Mortal Con-bat
Off in the corner somewhere was a guy dressed as Hsu Hao, wondering aloud, "Doesn't anybody want to take a picture of me?"
17. I Ain't Afraid of No Nerds
You should have seen how much these guys flipped out when a kid walked by dressed as Casper.
18. Do You Want to Build an X-Man?
Ever have that moment in the morning when you ask yourself, "Hmm...Should I dress like Anna from Frozen today, or Mystique?"
She has never had that dilemma.
19. Motorized Scooters Never Looked so Cool
Disney is really cranking out the new Star Wars movies. In fact, fifteen minutes after being out on the floor, this costume got a two-picture deal.
20. The Ghost with the Most
Legend has it if you scream the name "Beetlejuice" three times, a Comic-Con worker will calmly walk over and ask you to keep your voice down.
