 Sometimes, the best guests at our comic cons are those who redefine the fandom by dressing up.

These costumed players, or “cosplayers”, have become a prominent part to these large geek gatherings. They represent a kind of freedom to those that share our devotion to certain beloved characters by bringing them to life. In turn, peers would appreciate and cheer them on.

My favorite cosplayers are the lesser known obscure characters. To call them out by name often a brings a smile, or perhaps a thankful gesture, for recognizing their costume. For example: Italian Spider-man, Neil Gaiman’s “Death”, that Ithorian Jedi. My other favorites are creative variations of well-known characters turned into hipsters, gender-flipped, or in rare instances… Big Lebowskied. Next in favorites we get some amazing craftsmanship or added touches, giving more realism to the fantasy.

Here below is my photo gallery tribute to some recent cosplayer favorites from the 2014 Seattle Emerald City Comic Con.

Classic Bane, pumped up.
