After Hours

Cosplay at Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2012

One of my favorite parts of attending any Con is seeing the incredible cosplayers and their attention to detail. Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2012 (held Oct. 26-28) hosted the 25th reunion of the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast, so Star Trek cosplay was in abundance much to my excitement. There was also a ton of Avengers and Batman cosplay, as well as fantastic and obscure characters. I hope you enjoy my photos from Wizard World Austin Comic Con 2012! -- Jessica Mills

O.K. I understand the need to dress up as your favorite character and parade around a bunch of other like minded people. Don't get me wrong,..sometimes it can be fun, but at least take the time to make your costume look decent. Some of these were absolutely AWFUL! It looked like they were put together at the last minute by throwing together stuff from the local dollar store. YIKES! I feel nerdier now having viewed this album. I kept hearing the nerd from Robot Chicken speaking as I viewed these. Please don't be offended catwoman, but you look like a transexual who wandered into the wrong convention.

I wish you would improve the way the gallery works, it is annoying to wait for the whole page to reload when viewing the next image

Man, what's up with the crappy pictures? Though, they would have not helped the costumes much. I'm getting tired of seeing smart-phone pics. At least you didn't have a video recorded vertically.

Not to be mean, well maybe I have to be ! These costumes were the pits compared to the new York Comic Con

This is a First World problem. But yeah... what PeteHol said.
