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.

  Holy Crap, i just saw Hawkeye and Ms.Marvel, i wounder if the rest of the team was there?

Isn't this Jill Pantozzi?  She writes the "Hey!  That's My Cape" articles for Newsarama.  I have to say, that's a grossly effective Daenerys cosplay.

@kenseven: there's a story behind every photo i took. and yes, this was not a posed shot. i took a "normal" one right before, but some other attendee rushed past the tinkerbell and almost knocked off one of her wings. this is her reacting to that guy just as he was out of frame, which is why there's some movement in the wings. timing is everything :)

@norman: oh, so that's why the expression on her face was so natural. I'm sure it was a drag for her getting bumped, but i hope she liked her beautiful photo.

Wow that Ewok cosplay from the Sunday and Saturday cosplay section is pure gold!

Totally psyched that you got Linda Le in there too!

So many amazing costumes... but I'll always hold a special place in my heart for Disco Stormtrooper! ;)

Norm you have certainly held it down this year sir. Though there was less on Saturday I believe some of the best quality cosplays are from that day.

God bless all the wonderfully giving women who dress up in the Slave Leia costume.

Props to the Cosplayers for doing it. I wouldn't have the nerve to.

I forgot you had boobs, solid 6, thanks for splaying them out like that. 
I wish the Lilu outfit was something girls just wore. Find a way to integrate that into modern fashion.

Lots of good ones though my favorite is the redhead as a 1940s alternate history version of Captain America. Always enjoy seeing the alternate what if? costumes with some slight twist on what we know on how some hero/villain looks like.

Yay! We made it in the Comic Vine gallery! We took a lot of pictures you can find here -  but I think my favorite from above is the Deadpool shooting himself. There were a lot of great Deadpools - including one yelling "TACOS!" at the top of his lungs.

@Judge_Dredd said: This gal, portraying both Scarlet Witch and Wonder Woman, wins hands down! Is she a model?

I'd say that's porn model Devon Michaels.

My name is Valerie Perez and I do frequently model for comic book artists.

Crack that whip woman!

Just curious, do you have team make your outfits for you?

Oh and you looked awesome in that Zatanna outfit a while back.

Posted by Gorehorn


Oh, sorry there, honest mistake.
