Anaheim Comic Con Costumes

I attended the first annual Wizard World's Anaheim Comic Con yesterday. I'll have a full report and my thoughts on the convention tomorrow, but for now, let's look at costumes from Saturday! For me, they were one of the best things about this particular convention. I didn't see very many costumes early on, but as it got closer to time for the costume contest (which I missed), lots of costumed superheroes, villains, and more showed up. Some of my favorites:

Poison Ivy & Slave Leia

Me as Poison Ivy and a lovely Slave Leia (look at her shoes, love!)

Anakin Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader - I've never seen a costume emulate the in between/in progress Vader. It was really well done.

Pan's labyrinth costume

Angel of Death from Pan's Labyrinth, this costumer really had the walk and creepy factor down too.

Leeloo & Ivy

Adrianne Curry in a kick ass Leeloo costume and me with less than great pose

Catwoman & Big Boy

Catwoman and Big Boy, they were a really funny pair, loved meeting them

Vader, Ivy, Aayla

Samurai Vader and Aayla Secura

Poison Ivy & Harley Quinn Princess Tiana Steampunk costume Superman Batgirl and Jean Grey

It was my first time wearing a costume all day. I was thrilled when anyone recognized that I was Poison Ivy and so so flattered when anyone asked for a photo. I need to work on my posing in front of a mirror though. ;) If you see any of me out there on the net, please share.

You can see more photos from the convention over at my Flickr page.


  1. I wish I could have gone too. You look great Ivy!

  2. Those are some awesome costumes. I need to start figuring out what I want to make and how to make it, even if I can't get started right now. Going to SDCC next year with friends, I hope (omg so excited over 12 months in advance), and I'd love to bring something along even if I don't wear it much. And just to have. I'd kinda like to do Kaylee, but her look is better on people who have exceptionally-pretty faces to go with the otherwise drab outfits.

  3. Jedi-J - thank you! Looking forward to wearing the same costume to a con in the near future!

    Ruth - You can definitely start planning now, something else to be excited about. Plus, it will give you more time to accumulate pieces for your costume. Then you can do what I do and have all the pieces for three weeks or months and not put them together until two days before you leave. =P I still think I'm going to wear four different costumes to SDCC this year (including a Kaylee) but we'll see. :)

  4. I LOVE your costume, especially your hair!

  5. Jul - thank you! I wish I could keep my hair this color all the time. The vibrancy only lasts for about a week and a half.
