Joke-Off: Unusual Comic-Con Cosplay Ideas

This year, at Dallas Comic Con, I’ll be attempting Cosplay for the first time. I’m fucking terrified that I’ll show up and look like a huge dumbass, but I’m thankful that I’m made fun of enough in real life that it probably won’t affect me too much. I’ve been rolling through a lot of ideas–most terrible, some offensive, only about half do-able–and that got me thinking about other ideas that could come true.

For those of you who don’t know: cosplay is dressing as a character from your favorite show, comic, movie, anime, game, and so on. For instance, this fantastic genderbent Harley Quinn and Joker from Batman:


Fucking great, right? Add your submissions into the comments below–winner of the Throwdown tomorrow gets a nonsense gif!

From Nova: My gym change room is also the change room for a swimming pool, and I guess the floor-cleaning method of choice is to spray everything down, power-wash style. Well last week the lifeguard forgot to check if anybody was in the stalls before hitting them with the hose. And I was in there. She only got my knees down but it actually really scared me!

Sex and the City girls – walking around in ridiculous shoes, flirting with everything male that moves, and then freaking out when it doesn’t end in marriage.

That’s the best my pre-coffee mind has got. It’s likely that I will return with more.

“Sailor Pluto According To Current Scientific Knowledge” – I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at this one.
And with Batman’s parents, would that be the zombie version? Although I am rawther partial to Mike Degrasse Tyson. You’ve got a lot of potential winners here.

I think you should go as Bilbo, but after he gave up the ring but before he got all old looking. So basically you could spend an entire day walking around dressed as a hobbit, mistaking poeple for Frodo and asking if they have seen your ring. Any tall guy with a beard becomes Gandalf. BOOM. Done. Memory loose Bilbo. Bonus points if you carry around a map that is upside down.

I just wanted to say that the whole “Stephenie Meyer’s Imagination” is close to non-existent. So does this idea mean that you will be going naked to the con?
