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.

@norman: Classy. Anything to win, right?

I'll have to view these when I've slept a bit. So many to sort through and compare to last year!

There are some really good ones in there!!!
 
I loved the first Wonder Woman and the Black Widow with the Iron Man.
 
The Doctor Zoidberg one made me laugh, awesome lol

I liked the Female Sub Zero or the Green Skin Poison Ivy

helloooo spartans :D 
 
some pretty nice steam punk outfits this year. 
 
were the visibly hard nipples on the girl with pink hair and small white tank towards the end part of a costume or was it just oddly chilly in the hall?? o.O

wow, the quality and composition of these shots is very much above par for you average convention converage material.

Well done guys :)

Posted by Atomic Edge

The South Park girls and a certain Multipass wielder are great.

I've also got a lot of time for the Cylons.

Great work Norm, I look forward to seeing more!

Posted by Deadcool

We have some good Costplayers there.... 
But MOST of them are not that good... Good Job with the pictures.

None of Linda Le's Black Widow or Yaya Han's Amber yet...but it's cool. I'll wait.

That Wonder Woman at the top and bottom is pretty DAMN impressive. I wish I could see the whole thing because it looks so well tailored and the metal parts look well made. She even looks good in the part. Bravo, whoever you are. **clapping**
 
Okay, that Padme and the Slave Leia has a really creepy sort of subtext. Seeing how that character is her daughter. It looks as if there were at lease 15 separate Slave Leia cosplayers, and these were just the ones Norm got pictures of. Lucas had no idea what he was doing for the male libido when he designed that thing, but I thank him so. 
That is a very bold costume. It must have some underwear built into it, right?
 
The Power Girl with the "AH!" mark on her breasts was also nice. The Tony Stark with Black Widow as a nice couple.

Iron Man and Rogue look pretty bad ass to me.

Posted by LiquidSwords

The female versions of a lot of the Marvel/DC/Sci Fi characters look great!

Is it me or does The Silver Surfer look like Maynard from Tool

Posted by Duo_forbidden

Gotta say, it's a lot of dedication. I got to give props to every single person.

Posted by Migz13

The Tony Stark/Iron Man cosplayer looks more like Gary Oldman than Robert Downey Jr. LOL

Posted by ARMIV

Oh wow! There are a LOT of great cos-players here!  And I gotta say, there's also quite the number of cute/beautiful girls there. 

Posted by LiquidSwords

PS- One of the Wonder Women is an old school porn star, I'll let you guys figure out which one

Edited by bricewgilbert

Oh man that Doctor Who one is fantastic. Also I think I've spotted some porn stars like last year :)

Posted by Dunchad

It always amazes me how many good looking people are participating in this sort of thing. And how many exhibitionists as well - that Leeloo outfit is authentic for sure.

Posted by Utandi

Pretty cool costumes.

Posted by MysterioMaximus

Wolverine Mando...coolest...thing...ever!

Posted by Ultimate_MiracleMan

One day i am going to go to Comic con, only a couple thousand miles of ocean to cover first

Posted by TDK_1997

Most of them are really realistic

Posted by dcfox

Too many cosplay photos to look through! But after a quick glance I like the cylons, the Dr. Who's and that purple Spartan is pretty cute.

Posted by Joe Venom

Man I love so many of these and to think this is just from day 1! =D

Posted by .Mistress Redhead.

OMG SO MANY PICTURES O_O

Ok I loved the..

  • Clark Kent Superman
  • The metal edged Wonder Woman (though.. omg ow!)
  • The Cap and Iron Man from the first batch
  • The Tardis dress was brilliant!
  • The Steampunk chicky (forget the name of the comic)
  • The Halo girls woop"
  • The Iron Man with Black Widow
  • The Harley from the game

after that I got sick of looking...

Noooo, that's not Frost, definitely female MK3 Sub-Zero, got Sub's eye-scar and everything.

Brilliant MK9 Scorpion, lots of Ezio, a very good blue-haired Ramona, 10th and 11th Doctor too.

Edited by MatKrenz

Tons of awesome cosplays. That dude looks exactly like the 10th Doctor, so did the 11th Doctor. Also Rarity cosplayer ! ^_^ 
Also props to the guy that almost looks like Wesley Dodds, just no trenchcoat and fedora.
Posted by Mbecks14

Where can i meet some of these very attractive cosplaying women?

Posted by MrGutts

Holy jesus, that was just day 1! Crap ton of them!

I see some cheaters are in there, 501st squad is roaming around the floors.

Posted by MichaelBach

That's a lot of pics, some really nice ones in there :)

Yeah I wouldn't say that was a Frost but more of an amalgamation of the two love it any way.

I do really like the Female assassin in the first set.

Oh and Judge Dredd.

Posted by longbowhunter

I like the Damian Robin costume. My son and I were discussing how to put that together for Halloween this year.
Edited by Moonshadow101

I feel like I saw more Spartans than Caps, honestly.

Posted by Samimista

I never knew Comic-Con is filled with such hot people..that's another good reason to go LOL

ahh who r the spartan/greek guys in cape and underwear only

Posted by EGoD

Wow there were a lot of really awesome costumes this year.  Looks like people are really stepping up their costume designs.  The women get hotter every year too.   Though I really don't understand the loser who wore his green undies and painted a lantern on his chest, why do they let those ones in.
Posted by Mahzian

wow so many rad costumes! Logan Boba Fett is such a great idea haha

Posted by umbrafeline

i dont see my friend caroline as lady deadpool in this set

Posted by ooochoa

Great job Norm!

That was a spot on David Tennant Doctor and great Ironman with Black Widow.

Posted by Outside_85

Lots of Leia's out this year

Posted by busterblader

Looks like Norm (Tested) is well on his way to his thousand pictures.

     Heck ya, when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was the actual doctor, still did a pretty good job. 
 
The 10th Doctor;  the Joker with (harley from the game) were the best so far, that and the Wonder Woman.
Posted by Nasar7

Wonder Women are so hot.

Posted by MechaSpock

@FoxxFireArt: That's Sif and the Slave Leias, isn't it?

Posted by The Impersonator

Nice pics!

Posted by Sylver

Great stuff! I'm so jealous ;-) Some day I shall travel across country to go...but not this year... lol
