San Diego Comic-Con 2011 Cosplay Gallery

The official Comic Vine cosplay gallery, with 1100+ cosplay photos from San Diego Comic-Con 2011. Enjoy.

The gallery you've been waiting for is here. While Tony and Sara have been busy this Comic-Con interviewing comic creators, shooting booth tour videos, or attending panels, I've been walking around the convention floor non-stop on the hunt for cosplayers. There are many familiar faces from past cons and even this year's Wondercon, and surprisingly few Batmen in attendance. This year's big cosplay trend seems to be Captain America. Update: The gallery is now complete. This year's final tally was 1,143 photos!

Tell me which costumes are your favorites in the comments! (To scroll between images, open one, then press left and right on the keyboard--Chrome Only!)

== TEASER ==

Saturday and Sunday


Wednesday and Thursday

Hungry for more cosplay? Revisit my gallery of 850 cosplay photos from last year's Comic-Con.

There are two ridiculously hot girls who I have no idea what their costumes are, can someone identify the characters for me? First one is third from the left, three rows above the big Deadpool and Phoenix picture. The other one is second from the right under the giant Ghost Rider picture. She looks familiar to me so I think it might be a game character and the other one is what I assume to be a DC comics character. Beast.

Since I was little I have always wanted to go to Comic-con, but I've never been able to.

For Friday, I have to give it to the Cassandra Cain era Batgirl. With the contacts and sewn up mouth, its off putting and frightens me a little. So, working as intended for a batsuit!

Though I never thought I would see Homer-geta.

I never get tired of seeing the Stormtrooper costumes people have made. I need to make one some day.

I THOUGHT that was Adrianne Curry! I didn't catch all the photos first time I looked at these, but if that isn't her, its her clone! It has to be her. Looking good either way!

Was that Holly Conrad's Commander Shepard I saw..! :D

I did a double take with that guy as the Tenth doctor, looks almost like David Tennant.

Some what disappointed at the lack of ME2 cos-play but I tip my hat to every one else.

the composition for this photo, with the slight bokeh effect of the lights in the background, is beautiful.  
if this is a stolen shot, then the timing was brilliant .
