Chicago Comic Con (Wizard World): Costumes-a-go-go Part 2

Welcome to the final installment of the pics I took of the costumed folks at the 2009 Chicago Comic Con. Hope you enjoyed looking at them as much as I enjoyed bothering people to take them.


Here’s two Batmen (Batmans), Green Hornet, a return from death Superman, and a Joker. I can’t get over how sweet it is that the Batman cape opens like that. It also appears that old school Batman has some sort of grease stain, perhaps from battling a pizza themed crook.


I’d like to think that the addition of Mutt Williams in the world of Indiana Jones did a little good in this world, in that it allowed this dad and kid to bond a little. Yeah, it’s a stretch.


Here’s some X-Men. Let’s see, you’ve got the biggest tittied Ms. Marvel in the world, paint guy (who missed his arm pits), and Cyclops who is somehow wearing sunglasses that don’t cover his entire eyes, thereby killing us all. There’s also a bonus distracted Elektra in the background.


Bebop and Rocksteady just before they mutilate a helpless human victim.


And here’s one of the hottest Phoenixes at the show who just might be suffering from the dreaded evil curse known as “camel toe”.


Supergirl, Black Canary, Lex Luthor, and the dude from V for Vendetta team up to make a comic guaranteed to blow Alan Moore’s beard off his face. Also, bonus points to Supergirl for having the sleeves that go up to her fingers.


This photo is funny on two levels. The first is I actually wanted to get a pic of the Riddick from Pitch Black in the background there and he was too busy giving his number to the lady back there. The second reason this is funny is that many, many dudes were only taking pictures of that other woman’s ass.


Here’s the shell of a costume of a Optimus Prime costume that is totally bomb ass.


And here’s the cutest, almost pocket sized Power Ranger ever.


I have no problem with “expanded universe” Ghostbusters as long as they are cute females.


I think she’s saying, “On noes! There be ghosts!”


It takes balls of steel to wear the costume of the gayest robot ever on a convention floor that’s average temperature was 300 degrees Fahrenheit.


I’ve seen so many Star Wars troopers over the years that I’m almost completely unimpressed by this picture.

  • Great commentary!

  • Mandy

    i’m sorry now that i didn’t make it to the chicago comic-con. my boyfriend and i were in town for lolla and all pumped to go on saturday (alas, sans costume) but after the rain and exhaustion of listening to great bands for ten hours set in, we decided spending 30 bucks to miss half of both probably wasn’t worth it. looks like it was a great time!

  • LOVING Miss Marvel there… But Rocksteady and Bebop are even cooler. But I don’t want to sleep with them… Too much.

  • It’s amazing that I spent 4 days at the same convention, and didn’t even see half of these costumes.

    I checked to see if any sexy TAO sneaked his way into your pictures, but alas, it seems like you have missed out.

  • Some great photos and some interesting comments. Would have been fun to have been there to see the hottest Phoenixes

  • Mark @ Kids Spiderman Costumes

    Very cool costumes! Thanks for sharing! The Phoenix is a cool costume, must have cost a bit but it looks the part.

  • Dude,

    Thanks for the clarification on the Riddick pic.
    Or else, everyone would have thought that you also clicked the pic for the ass. LOL
