Best of DragonCon 2008 Costumes!
I’m closing out my DragonCon 2008 coverage with my favorite costume photos. Some have been shown here previously, but they bear repeating. To see all of my DragonCon photos, be sure to visit my Flickr page. If you have a favorite costume that I left out, be sure to mention it in the comments.
The Iron Man suits were definitely the coolest overall costumes at the con. Simply breathtaking.
Axl wins as the most subtle yet effective costume at the con. This guy was in character too! He made a comment that the “Chinese Democracy” album would be out really soon. Too funny!
This “Iron Man” was hilarious and very unexpected. Definitely the funniest costume at the con.
Quite a few people were talking about the Convention Vixens. Here is “Erotic Hypnotic” from that group. You can find more on the ConVixens by clicking here.
Lego Fett was amazing! Very creative (and time consuming I imagine)!
A very funny and creative costume if you’ve seen the movie “Hancock”.
Here is a great Doctor Who-related costume. It’s from the VERY creepy episode “Blink” in which statues come to life.
An impressive Supergirl.
Another fantastic and unexpected costume. The Yip Yip guy was great the way he moved his mouth!
I saw two different guys as Jack Knight’s Starman this year. This jacket was really cool. Well done!
Another funny costume. This one comes from the movie “Shrek”.
Surrounding Cobra Commander with hot chicks was a stroke of brilliance! Hail Cobra and his Hiss Ho’s!
A creative idea turning a nice suburban family from the 1950s into zombies.
There were a few groups of Ghostbusters this year, but these guys are friends of mine. They worked really hard on their proton packs and they turned out amazing!
The sexy stewardesses
Just because I love the TV show “Chuck” so much, the “Buy More” staff! Subtle costume, but smart.
The arms on this Doctor Octopus were really impressive.
The whole Hogwarts bad-girl thing was huge this year. Understandably.
I have no idea what it’s supposed to be, but it looks friggin’ cool (and is insanely tall).
And for you fans of the Star Wars Lego game…
