CostumeCon putting on a show

Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
Comic-Con is nothing if not the biggest costume party on earth. The convention center is huge and the entire place is filled with people. Well over a hundred thousand of them. The building is large enough that if you lost your keys, it would take months to find them (it also looks much more airport-like than the actual airport for some reason). From steampunk to nearly-naked Princess Leia, all costumes are welcome so long as you check your toy weapons with security first. And with tens of thousands of people in such elaborate disguise, it's hard to assume ours are worthy of the masquerade.

However, my dad has requested some pictures of our costumes and fellow Buzz blogger Uncountable has put together a fantastic photo collection for you to sample the madness in addition to Ms. Alignment's Extreme Science Squad (AKA yours truly), so without further adieu...


  1. In the voice of Jeff Albertson, Comic Book guy from the Simpsons: Gosh, this is the worst post ever! I think you are trying to refer to the 1983 Star Wars episode VI character Princess Leia known to serious fans as Slave Leia.

  2. I changed the spelling from Leah to Leia, but I doubt my reputation among Star Wars fans will ever recover.
