Comicpalooza 2014: 10 Fantastic Costumes from Day 2 #cosplay
Day two of Comicpalooza in Texas brought bigger crowds and a ton of costumes. I spotted everything from a little Hellboy to Darth Vader to some original designs while wandering the convention floor today. While it’s always fun to take photos of cosplayers, I highly recommend taking a minute and asking them about their work. They’re usually glad to discuss materials and processes because they put so much time into creating their costumes. You can see examples of some quality craftsmanship in these ten great costumes from day two of Comicpalooza (photos by me unless otherwise stated):
Enchantress, Thor, and Loki from Marvel Comics
Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty
Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus
Robb Stark from Game of Thrones (he had a cool handmade direwolf necklace pendant)
Gender swapped Daredevil from Marvel Comics
LEGO minifig Huntress, Deathstroke, and Deadpool from DC and Marvel Comics
