Interested in going to emerald city comic con or learn more about it? You can check out their website at
1. Deadpool -

A comic con is never complete without at least one person dressing up as Deadpool from Marvel. He is essentially the merc with a mouth type of antihero and is well known for popping his wisecracks (much like spiderman) when dealing with foes. By the way, have any of you seen the new Deadpool movie yet? I have seen it and it is pretty awesome, though I might not recommend it for kids considering that the movie is somewhat crude and might be too much for some people. I imagine it would be a challenge to create a Deadpool costume, but people do make it
2. Power Rangers
|Managed to get a picture of at least one group of people dressed up as Power Rangers a few years ago|
3. Darth Vader and other Star Wars Characters
|Here are some businessmen dressed up as Darth Vader and Boba Fett|

5. Master Chief from Halo series

|Me sitting in on the Adam West and Burt Ward panel discussion at the Emerald City comic con back in 2013. They were well known as the "original" Batman and Robin (at least prior to Michael Keaton and all of the more recent Batmans)|
8. Nick Fury
|Picture of me dressing up as Nick Fury at Comic con (btw, Nick Fury was not always portrayed as a Samuel Jackson type, older versions of the character, like the version of him in Marvel Ultimate Alliances 1 and 2 were portrayed as Caucasian instead of African American characters, much like how Thor was not always portrayed as a female character as is the case with the MCU version of Thor).|
9. Captain America

Yes, you might get people dressed up as villainous characters too. At the costume contest they do about 2 years ago, there was a man dressed up as the riddler from Batman. Perhaps the most well known Riddler was the Jim Carrey version of the character in Batman Forever. Other common villians includes: Venom, Magneto, Carnage, the Joker, Loki, Geth from Mass Effect (at least Mass Effects 1 and 2 portrayed them as villainous characters), and many others. I am actually considering as dressing up as Captain Hook from Peter Pan myself (the main antagonist in Peter Pan). Used to have a fake hook somewhere.
Other notable mentions:- Malificent
- Iron Man
- Super Mario and luigi
- Aladdin (you can also find people dressed up as him at Disneyland)
- Characters from the Mass Effect series (such as Commander Shepard, Legion, and others)
- Galactus (the planet eater villan)
- Back Cat from Spiderman
- Chun Li from Street Fighter
- Lara Croft from Tomb Raider
My plans for this year:
|Random picture of Bulk and Skull on Pinterest|
Originally, I was thinking about dressing up as Bulk from power rangers, however I don't have a punky outfit, and although I am planning to go to comic con with my brother Justin, I doubt that he would want to play as Skull (the costume would work best if I paired up with someone). Might go as Bulk next year, especially with the new Power Rangers movie coming out next year. So, another idea I have is to dress up as captain hook (though Captain Morgan is a possibility too). Will likely shop for pirate clothing sometime in March. Captain Morgan was a possibility too, though now that I am on the 30/10 weight loss diet (can't drink alcohol), that might be difficult to do.

Yes I did dress up again at the comic con this year. Considering that the new Batman vs Superman movie came out around the time of the comic con, I thought it would be fun to do a Lex Luthor costume. Will post the pics in a separate post.
Well, that is all for this post. Have you been to a comic con (or similar event)? What would you consider your most cliché costumes? Feel free to leave a comment below?
