I am not sure if this person is a furry or just a Star Fox fan. It is really good Star Fox costume. I have many friends who say if you wear a costume like this you are either a Furry or a Furry in training. They could have picked a different costume. I am not sure if that is try or not.

There were lots of Dr Venture costumes at Comic Con this year. The Monarch and his crew were the most popular to cosplay. I think they were the best of the costumes I saw. I am happy the Venture Bros. are getting more popular. I am looking forward to season four.

I love these dresses. They took the bags that were all over comic con in 2007 and made dresses out of it. It is really cool if you go to comic con a lot. It is the first time I have seen this and I saw two of them. I wonder these women know each other. I know these are not costumes, but it is con specific clothing and that is close enough.

There are few alter egos that are worth cosplaying for comic con. Walter Kovacs is iconic enough to make this costume work. I am not sure many other characters that are. Does that make him as iconic as Clark Kent or Peter Parker? Maybe, or maybe not, but the costume is still cool.

You find a lot of Wonder Woman cosplayer at comic con, but very few Steve Trevors. I guess he only looks like Steve Trevor if he is standing next to Wonder Woman.
I never saw the Sci Fi channel movie Tin Man, but I still like this costume. The character is Glitch, the scare crow figure in this Wizard of Oz story. I love when characters this obscure get cosplayers at comic con. I think there is a marketing chance here. Maybe smaller works should sponsor their fans to cosplay the characters.

I see so few Heroes costumes. I know it has something to do with no one on the show wearing a costume. I guess you need to look like one of these guys before hand to cosplay them.

This is the kind of costume. You will usually see them the day of the panel. I did not get to see the Big Bang Theory Panel this year. I will have to try again next year. I am looking forward to the new season starting today. This was the only Big Bang Theory costume I saw this year

I found my photos on this blog entry about how to costume Galactus. His blog has a few good entries about costumes. I think it is pretty cool.

I love this costume. I love it so much, I even posted this really bad photo of this costume. It is a great idea. I know they are bringing Captain America back to life, but this is still a good idea. I know that this comic would never happen, but I bet there if Fan Fiction about this out there. My man Henchman 21 got a better shot of this costume.
It is easy to love this costume. The Red Skull is a little hard to do. On top of that I love that he is wearing Captain America's Mask or at least part of it. I think that is a great costume. I love the way he is selling the Red Skull. Oh, I included another photo of this guy, but one with pikachu behind him. I love the idea of the Red Skull and Pokemon crossover

I did not know who the Spoiler was when I took this picture. It turns out that the Spoiler is part of the Batman/Gotham world. There seems to be a lot of martial artist in Gotham city. It is a little strange to me.
I loved Jubilee when I read the X-Men. I thought it was great that her costume made fun of Robin's costume. I understand that I am in the minority. I understand that most people just hate Jubilee. I think she rates as one of the least loved X-Men characters of all time. This makes me a little sad. There are some characters that should be annoying and braty. Just because you would not like them as people, it does not think you should not like them as characters. Jubilee deserves a little more love.

The more I see this photo the more I love this costume. I love it because it translate well when I just see the thumbnail. That is one way to define a good costume. I also wonder how this person saw out of this costume. Was everything rose colored for her.

The Penguin is a very odd villain to me. There seems to be something old about the idea of him as a comic. I really wish that comic book companies could just let time pass in the comics. I think it would make comics better and not worst. Stan Lee said something about comic books only working when the world of the heroes is like the world of the readers. That is why General Motors never made the Fantasticar to have every American flying around.
That being said, it is hard to make the Penguin relevent in the current world. It is easy to see why he could be a villain in the 40's and 50's, not it is hard to see what makes him a villain. Just because you are ugly you do not get to be a villain. If I ran batman I would retire the Penguin. I would keep him in the book, but not as a bad guy. He would be just be a character in Gotham.

For some reason women like to dress Johnny Depp characters. I am not sure why that is. It might be something about Johnny Depp himself. I guess he has a lot of feminine qualities he taps into for some of his acting.
UPDATE: I forgot that I took this photo of a women cosplaying Sweeney Todd. It another one. I not have to find a woman cosplaying Donnie Brasco.

As part of Geoff Johns' Green Lantern Rebirth, he also restarted the Green Lantern Corp. I have read good reviews of his Green Lantern Corp comic. I hear he really made them into Cosmic Cops. That is cool. I guess this guy is part of the Green Lantern SWAT team.

I thought this guy came up with this costume himself. I found out that an artist came up with this a few years ago. It is still a really cool costume. I know that people say that Star Wars is ripped off the Hidden Fortress, but I still think this is an original idea.

I was trying to think of what photo to post for Labor Day. I do not have any photos of Teamster costumes. No one ever cosplays Upton Sinclair or Tom Joad. I am not sure there are any famous sci-fiction labor characters. I had to go with Rosie the Riveter. Let me know if there are any Sci-Fi characters you think are a good symbol of Labor Day.
