SDCC '14: Cosplay

Here, have some SDCC cosplay. You're welcome. Cosplay at SDCC had more Rocket Raccoon than ever before, because there was basically none before Guardians of the Galaxy made it to the big screen. There was even a sexy Rocket, which was strange thing. While wandering the aisles of SDCC, I overheard a guy say, "Comic-con confuses me. I don't know whether to look at the hottest girl ever or the coolest thing ever." Agreed. Sometimes it is a bit difficult to mange cosplay photos when you're also there to take photos of cool stuff. You could be on the way to take photos at a booth of the awesome new toys, but then you see a certain cosplayer and become totally side-tracked. It happens quite a bit.

Again, there was lots of great cosplay, but my winners are Honey from Space Dandy and Billy and Jimmy Lee from Double Dragon. I want to make sure the Lee twins win since I don't want them to find me and beat me up. Or maybe I do. Anyway, other fantastic cosplayers were the DC Bombshells, Chocolina, the Transformers (like G1 Shockwave), and all the Rocket Raccoons. Check out the photos below and click to embiggen.

Also, Mariachi Scorpion and Sub Zero are now the greatest thing ever.
