The sexiest guy in Gotham City (I'm so so so sorry Bruce Wayne!) is here. Nightwing, former member of the Dynamic Duo (yes, he used to be Robin) is all grown up and helping Batman Whenever he needs him.

ORANGE IS THE NEW WOW

Ok, you got me here, I have no idea of what this guy is supposed to be but, hey, he is covered entirely in orange paint, that´s a great start don't you think?

SUPERMAN

As far as dark, twisted shadows go, Superboy Prime (the guy on the right) may not be our favorite character. Great cosplay, though. And Supes is super hot, everything we need is there already.

THE HAWKS

majke3

All props are on its place, cosplayers all over the world spend fortunes on ebay trying to find the perfect accessories for their costumes. If they can't find it, they build it themselves.

GROUP FUN1

It doesn't matter where the characters displayed were born. Just make sure to have fun with your friends. It is pretty common to see a group of people stageing all together a scene from a movie.

CONTEST

You can always apply to a cosplay contest while at comic con, even winning a great prize. But the real fun is to walk around the aisles of the convention celebrating your favorite character.

PICTURES

forbesimg

Hey! we've seen this character before! another fun thing about doing cosplay is to pose for a million photographs from absolutely everyone who passes by. The better your costume is, the more photos are requested.

WHO IS SHE??

vgtimes

Her name is Heidi O'Ferrall she is now dressed as a Splatoon 2-inspired character and she is killing it! So awesome the way you have no clue of where the real Heidi ends and where the mask starts. Great job!

A GOOD CAUSE

forbesimg

Aurora Ortiz, is dressed as Batgirl, but modified her costume in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. Some would say she is not being true to the character she is displaying, I say it was a great idea.

POISON IVY IS IN DA HOUSE

vgtimes

Don´t ask me why but Poison Ivy has been my personal favorite villain since I was a kid and this one in particular won my heart. Please, beautiful lady, marry me!

MARKETING

Brands from all over the world now understand they have to be at the game to play the game. Here, a razor brand is cosplaying one of their promoters as an actual razor machines.

A COSPLAY FAMILY

Mom, dad and the kids are making of cosplay a family affair. And they look too adorable! I wish my dad had brought me to one of those conventions when I was a little child, if they'd existed then.

PORTRAITS

If you are good enough you could be selected by some of the sponsors to be professionally photographed for the official portraits of the convention, like cyclop, the one above.

BATMAN VS SUPERMMAN

A good cosplayer is always taking care of the details and they are very specific about which version of the character they are impersonating. In this picture, both Batman and Superman are wearing distinctive elements from the mayor movie.

RIP

boy4me

Guys with smocking hot ripping bodies are always ready to display some guns. And their choices of cosplay are always right. Who wouldn't love to show off some fire muscles if we had them?

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

elsalvador

Not even Her Madjesty the Queen of Hearts herself wanted to miss a comic convention. There will be a lot of head rolling if she gets there late. Crazy lady!

BANANA BOY

imageslogotv

Yes, I told you ripped guys love to show off at Comic Con, but this Donkey Kong cosplayer went for the extremes. Quite Hot I must say, but, sweety, try a little.

MOVIE POSE

imageslogotv

Another fun thing (yes, another) of cosplayers is the ability to recreate movie posters, scenes and vignettes from famous pictures, series or books when someone is taking their photo. This guys are doing one of the Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice promotional images.

DRAGON BALL

akamaihd

I´m not sure if the guy in the picture is doing Dragon Ball but look at that wig, I have no idea of how they do it, but if any of those guys from the DB universe were flesh and bone, that´s how their hair would look like.

MARIO KART

fuse

Super Mario Kart might not have been my first choice while asked for my favorite video game, but after seeing all the details this guy got on his costume I am really looking forward to get home and turn that old console on for a ride.

GETTING READY

edaily

We know, darling, it's too damn hot outside and you are allowed to carry your wig and helmet like that, but once you get inside the Convention Center you are becoming your character. We know.

COLORS

akamaihd

I love this one! The amazing colors in this guy´s costume are like taken from an actual comic book page. It´s brilliant, stunning and so damned sexy! Just like our kryptonian hero.

ELEMENTS

akamaihd

Elements are represented in the most clever ways. Cosplay knows no limits. Look at this guy representing fire and ice all over his costume. Challenge accomplished! We have a winner.

GENDER BENDERS

akamaihd

Cosplay knows no gender and everyone is free to pick their favorite character to represent. There is also a Gender Bender category where cosplayers creatively create a costume representing a character in the opposite gender.

NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS: HAVE FUN

gettyimages

It could take long hours for a cosplayer to get ready.. But once the full costume is ready, he/she will have the time of his / her life . I wish I had the skills to do this, it looks like they are having a blast!

JEDI

mshcdn

Every movie of the Star Wars saga comes with hundreds of different characters to be cosplayed. If you want to pick the leads, you better do it right. Like the girl in the picture.

GO BIG

mshcdn

The bigger you get, the most eyes will be on you. It could get a little uncomfortable to walk around these narrow aisles in the convention on a huge costume, but it is totally worthy.

USE YOUR IMAGINATION

techjokers

Even the most simple things look amazing in cosplay. Take a look at this red stormtrooper, isn't he just stunning? I know, it's just a helmet and a red suit. But you wish you hat thought it first, right?

TALE AS OLD AS TIME

amazon

This is what dreams are made of. You can be whatever you want, even your favorite princess from your childhood. If you had the chance of becoming any character you wanted, who would that be?

As we stated before, cosplay is all about the details. This girl got everything right on its place. See how specific she was about this particular version of Storm from the Xmen.

PERFECT WINTER BOY

ofpof

And speaking of getting it right, we are absolutely amazed by this portrayal of the Night King. Our favourite villain from Game of Thrones since last season. It's giving us the chills!

MAD AS A HATTER

upsocl

Mad about this Mad Hatter! We love him here more than the one in the movie. Oh c´mon! let's face it, nobody likes him in that lame movie! Or do you?

GUESS WHO

timeincapp

Are these two the real thing or ARE they just fooling everyone around them? I don't really want to know! They're too perfect! I wish I was there to have my picture taken with them both.

YOUR VOICE

onedio

Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure), a contraction of the words costume play, is a hobby in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character.[1] Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture, and a broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject and it is not unusual to see genders switched. Favorite sources include anime, cartoons, comic books, live-action films, television series and video games.

PAN

The rapid growth in the number of people cosplaying as a hobby since 1990s has made the phenomenon a significant aspect of popular culture in Japan and some other parts of Asia and in the Western world. Cosplay events are common features of fan conventions and there are also dedicated conventions and local and international competitions, as well as social networks, websites and other forms of media centered on cosplay activities.

The term "cosplay" was coined in Japan in 1984. It was inspired by and grew out of the practice then-known as fan costuming at science fiction conventions, beginning with the 1st World Science Fiction Convention in New York City in 1939.

GROUP

clipmass

It is quite funny when several cosplayers who have chosen the same character get together for a picture. You get several sizes of your favourite leading lady here! EVERYBODY SAY CHEESE!

VIDEO GAMES

If you have played that awesome video game now you know this guy is a professional. And quite scary i must say! I don't want him haunting my dreams from now on!
