It's a Comic-Con rite of passage to wander the convention hallways, mouth agape, trying to take in the vast array of characters on display. But we're not talking about those on the printed pages, the heroes configured as plastic poseables or the associated celebs and filmmakers. Those are cool, but we're talking about the fans who take their devotion to its highest level: Cosplay.
San Diego Comic-Con is nothing without the constant flow of eye candy, as folks wearing costumes of various degrees of quality (and obscurity) from all the realms of pop culture intermingle freely and giddily all week.
Where else can you see "Halo"'s Master Chief, a zombie and two Clone Troopers from Jedi General Plo Koon's "Wolfpack Squadron" all posing together at the same time? Don't worry, if you're not at Comic-Con this year, MTV's cameras have you covered. Heck, even if you are making your way to the hallowed Hall H while reading this on a smartphone, we've still got you covered, because we've culled some of the best of the best in this little gallery.
Click through these photos from the convention floor and be amazed, as we were, by a gaggle of DC super heroines (Wonder Woman? Naturally. Aquaman love interest Mera? Even better); a "Dark Knight Rises" styled trio of Batman, Bane and Jim Gordon; a super hot female Cyclops who puts every incarnation of Scott Summers to shame; and fans of everything from "Prometheus" to "Tron," "Megaman" and "Saints Row."
Stick with MTV as we bring San Diego Comic-Con to you with wall-to-wall convention coverage from the panels to the streets. Hosts Josh Horowitz and Steven Smith are onboard for live broadcasts on fan-favorite movies, comic creators, TV shows, cosplay, gaming and more!
