SDCC 2012: Cosplay Gallery

Many people dressed up. Here's nearly 600 images for you to check out.

You can't have a San Diego Comic-Con without cosplay. Some of you may have feared we weren't going to feature any. That is not the case. With huge thanks to Norman Chan of Tested.com, we were able to get another huge gallery of the best cosplayers at this year's Comic-Con. It's always an amazing thing to see the detail and time the cosplayers take to put together their costumes.

Sit back and get ready to begin clicking away to enlarge each pic. Be sure to check out Tested.com for some alternate views of most of these images. I managed to take a few pics myself but came nowhere near the number Norm was able to get. (To scroll between images, open one, then press left and right on the keyboard if you're using CHROME).

== TEASER ==

Thanks again to Norman Chan for sharing and combining his pictures with ours. Check out his gallery over at Tested.com to see some different angles and poses.

Tony Guerrero is the Editor-in-Chief of Comic Vine. You can follow him on Twitter @GManFromHeck. The closest he ever came to really cosplaying was dressing up as Madman for Halloween one year.

I don't see a U.S. Agent. You expect me to believe there was not 1 U.S. Agent?!

@JamDamage: Refresh your browser maybe? Or try a different browser? What/where are you trying to look at 'em?

I may be in the minority here but I like seeing Hawkeye represented. Especially those who went old school with the purple get up.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHY I CAN'T CLICK ON ANY OF THE PICTURES ON THIS SITE!?!?

I CAN CLICK PICTURES IF I GO INTO A GALLERY OF A CHARACTER BUT THAT'S ABOUT IT. IS IT JUST ME OR IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING THIS PROBLEM?

Some very good costumes. I haven't been to SD Comic Con in a few years, but it's always great!

Surprisingly, my favorite was actually the girl who did a female version of Freddy Krueger. I have no idea why. It must be the mix of her being attractive (always a bonus) and the overall simplicity of the costume - yet it just works. I don't even like Freddy Krueger. I also liked the guy who did Red Skull and I got a good laugh out of the Hello Chun-Li! (aka Hello Kitty! Chun-Li). Great stuff all around. Some very bad ones as well ... but that's what makes the good ones stand out. That completely Noir chick did a really good job too. I have no idea who she was supposed to be though.

For those wondering, the girl featured as the first Catwoman and later as Psylocke is a professional cosplayer that goes by YaYa - you can check out a lot of her stuff on DevianART. She has some really nice costumes here and there.

Good Lord Tony, I know I was telling you on Twitter to get to bed, but suddenly I think your losing sleep was worth it - these are spectacular photos of amazing people. I think my faves are Deadman and kiddie Hawkeye. 
 
Who's the chap in the nappy with the two lab assistant ladies? My first thought was a shy Dr Manhattan, but he'd be blue with a tiny ... symbol.

MAN....so many fantastic costumes. I've just begun looking and am already blown away by the incredible costumes on display. THANKS so much for taking all these pics and sharing them!!!

Was this suppose to be Wesley Dodds Sandman?

No, that´s from Killing floor (a video game). That´s why he´s making that pose. The Dosh pose.

Pure gold...

Anti-Venom and Galactus, sweet costumes...

Posted by Barubal10

Stephanie Brown, Deadman, Bane, Psylocke and Anti-Venom are awesome. Court of Owls G-Man is okay too.

Edited by csl316

Some cool stuff. I'm partial to The Tick myself, although that's a pretty excellent Spider-Man.

gg, Norm.

Edit: And there's Earthworm Jim! We think he's mighty fine!!

Plus awesome Sara!

Edited by difficlus

a lot of good cosplay here. Catwoman, psylocke, red skull and red sonja look incredible. But the above picture really won my as the best yet!

So has anyone started a cosplay drinking game yet? Every time you see a Leia you take a shot. Don't think anyone would go home sober.

Just you bro, just you. Are you using Firefox? Chrome, Internet Explorer? Be sure to have the latest drivers 'n' all. You're not running on an old Windows 95, are you? (just asking!)

I went and had an awesome time. However I didn't see half of these. Goes to show you how much is going on at SDCC. Its impossible to see everything. If you ever have a chance to go I suggest you jump at the opportunity. Really worth the trip.

Anti-Venom, Spidey, Deadman, even an Engineer? Awesome.

Posted by TDK_1997

They are all great.
