Welcome back to part 3 of My First San Diego Comic ConPart 1 was a primer of things to come, and in Part 2 we met X-Men legend, Chris Claremont! Today we take a look at the most unique element of SDCC that almost everybody looks forward to: Cosplay!

On Friday I met some awesome Cosplayers who were not only dedicated to their characters, but were very willing to be photographed. We have three groups of Cosplay pictures to showcase, this one being the first, and with each group you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorites in the poll below! The Top 4 Cosplayers from each of the three groups (A, B, and C) will be featured in the Top 12 Cosplayers of SDCC 2010 poll which will go live on Sunday. There will be a prize given out to the top 2 vote getters from (details below), so be sure to voice your opinion on who you think has the best costume!

I’m not going to pretend like I know who all these Cosplayers are supposed to be, but I’ll try my best. To keep things simple, each Cosplayer is assigned a number you can find in the poll below. I apologize in advance for some of the blurry pictures- that Con floor was packed with people. So get voting!

1. A Stormtooper and Imperial Officer

2. Ravager

3. Shazam

4. I honestly have no clue who these people are…video game characters? Regardless, they look awesome! Especially the chick on the right. You can't see it in the photo, but she had these cool contacts in too.

5. Superman

6. Harley and Joker

7. Umm…sexy elf girls?

8. Red X guy (or girl). He was way cool. He struck some awesome poses for everyone…but I'm not sure what he's from.

9. Kick-Ass!

10. Scout Trooper and Jawas. This is a dad and his two kids. Freakin' hilarious!

11. Optimus Prime

12. Voltron! …I'm not sure if this was a Cosplay or a company character. Regardless, it's really well done!

13. The Riddler

14. Boushh the bounty hunter. Luckily, he wasn't threatening me with a thermal detonator.

15. A clan of Mandalorians and Boushh.

16. The hottest Jedi on the Con floor.

17. The cutest Imperial Trooper

18. Sassy Manadlorian chick.

19. Who you gonna call? …a shaky camera operator!

20. Zombie Stormtrooper and Obi-Wan Kenobi

21. R2-D2. Again, I'm not sure if this was a Cosplay or something specific for a booth. Either way, it's cool.

Now VOTE for your favorites! The Top 4 from this group will move on to our Top 12 Cosplayers from SDCC 2010 poll which will be posted on Sunday!

Prizes for this contest are sponsored by For a selection of t-shirts available, please visit the Super Hero T-Shirts section of their site. Styles and sizes are only available as listed. Winners will be required to forward their names and addresses to before being able to claim their prize.

  1. Aron

    Damn, it’s too hard to pick just one!

  2. Eli

    I think I’m going with the dad and two kids. Just awesome!

    Also, if I could vote for the worst, it’d be Ravager. What the heck is that guy, I think its a dude, thinking! Gotta be the ugliest Ravager ever.

  3. Once you go Elf…well, that’s pretty much it! lol

  4. Eli- Ravager is a chick. The picture doesn’t do her justice. She was kinda cute in person. I blame the camera man!!

  5. I think Red X is a cover identity that Robin used in the Teen Titans cartoon.

  6. Eli

    Andy, seriously, thats a girl. Man o man you must have one magic camera there, cuz I would swear that thats a dude. Although, I can make out what seem to be boobies. OK, well, I guess I was really wrong. I’d like to apologize to that Ravager girl for thinking she was a man. Sorry Rose

  7. I thought his name was Captain Marvel.

    Either way, my vote goes to the Trooper and Jawas.

    Red X is the evil version of Robin from the Teen Titans :). He intended to use his alter persona to infiltrate and gain the trust of Slade. But his plan backfired…yeah.
