WonderCon 2014: Cosplay Gallery

Here's over a hundred Cosplay pics.

Last weekend was WonderCon in Anaheim. Of course that means there were plenty of Cosplayers out and about. In between doing interviews and filming segments for the next Mystery Art Challenge, we tried taking as many Cosplay pics as we could. Sadly, there were so many great costumes we were unable to get pics of. But thanks to Norm from Tested.com, we also have some pics he was gracious enough to share. Be sure to check out his full Cosplay gallery HERE.

Here's pics from Norm:

Wow, there are two of the best Doc Ock cosplays I've ever seen. The one with mini Sandman is so awesome. Also, that Angela is fantastic!

Lara Croft and Volstagg are also very cool.

I remember seeing the Witch-King cosplay on Sunday. It's amazing how they managed to bend the metal parts so well.

Heck, yeah. Two-Ton 21 is there in all his pre-dieseled glory.

...and then the costumes just. Keep. Getting. Better.

This has got to be the best cosplay album of the year...so far.

This is one of the weakest cosplay galleries I've seen in awhile. You'd think you could count on people in L.A. to go all out. But maybe I should have expected more fair weather fans. Disney Princesses and Walter White? I get it, you want to get the most use out of that Halloween costume as possible. The crowd was certainly not without it's standouts though.

I think my favorites were the group with Falcon, shiny Cap, and the classic SHIELD agents. All those were excellent. Bataranged Joker was pretty cool as well. I liked the Predator kid, and the South Park heroes. Great Volstagg, Angela, and Red Lantern Guy Gardner. I like the Scarlet Witch/Lady Loki duo, and there were a couple of steampunky things that I wasn't familiar with that seemed to be pretty inspired.

@nappystr8: Sorry man, I just feel this is insulting. Do you Cosplay? Let's see some of your costumes. This is only a small number. Have you checked out Norm's full gallery that has over 575 pics?

I must have been in a bit of a mood when I wrote that, because it definitely came out more disrespectful than I had intended, but I strongly believe in the in the feelings that my words expressed. Personally, I find it disrespectful that people will just throw on any old costume to go to a comic convention. I'm not personally into cosplay, but the people who do it right creating costumes out of hard work and honest passion really make this hobby of ours so much more exciting.

I did just check out Norm's Gallery and it is indeed full of some really really great examples of cosplay done right, so I take back what I said about the Wondercon crowd as a whole. I still stand by my statements for the people to whom it applies to though.

Let me try to frame my opinion in a more constructive manner. In my experience, no one goes to weddings in a T-Shirt and nobody wants people in Star Trek gear showing up to a Renaissance festival. There are things that are situationally appropriate and things that are not. I just don't see how it is a appropriate to dress up like a character from an entirely grounded show like Breaking Bad that has widespread popularity and zero ties to comic books for a convention that is specifically geared toward comics. When someone dresses up for a comic convention they are either implicitly or explicitly asking to get attention from the crowd. It doesn't sit well with me that people who don't seem to have less love for comics than they do for greater popular culture, who put little creativity and/or effort into their cosplay, think that what they deserve attention over the people who spend months researching, sewing, sculpting, and so on.
