SDCC2010 – Top 10 Costumes Day 2

The second day of Comic-Con 2010 features one of the best Elektra costumes out there, as well as an excellent and intimidating Darkseid costume.

10. Supergirl & Darkseid

Of the two, I would say Darkseid is the better costume. His face has excellent texture, and it didn’t look like a fake rubber mask. I wish I would’ve gotten some closeups because it was truly impressive. I think Supergirl looks a bit Emo here, however. It’s cool that she’s getting in to character, at least. “Take this, Darkseid!”

9. {Cyber Girl}

I have to apologize to the costumed lass in this image because I don’t remember what booth she was in, what product she was selling, or if she was based on a character. I’ve dubbed her The Cyber Girl, which I’m 99% sure is completely wrong. It is is a nice costume, though, right?

8. Mad Moxxi

This costume has an excellent style. It’s like a playful, sexy, version of the..¬†Proving that one cannot know everything about everything, I have later found out this cosplay is of Mad Moxxie from Borderlands.

7. Elektra

A straightforward, classic Elektra costume. Wait, she’s showing more skin the classic Elektra outfit. Well, I applaud her choice in making the character her own. Once again a prefer the comic-book version of a character to the usual Hollywood treatment. C’mon, pants??

6. Zombies

<rant>I wish people would get into the zombie genre instead of the sparkly vampire and reverse-werewolf genre!</rant> This troupe really got into the part; from their make-up to their clothes to their attitude. They never broke character when asked for a photo; they shambled into the photo op.

 

5. Poison Ivy

I’m a progressive. And what’s more progressive than an African-American Poison Ivy? As long as she’s got red hair and covered in foliage, I’m good. Oh, but I don’t approve of horns! And see that evil guy way in the background with the glowing eyes? He must be a visitor.

4. Nemesis

Great costume, great weapon. But he was like 5 feet tall! So we’ll call him Nemeis Jr. and be done with it.

3. {Tough Girls}

Once again, I apologize that I don’t know the name of the characters, the thing they’re advertising or any of that. I just hope they don’t beat me up for being so distracted. They’re some tough-looking ladies, after all. I like that each costume is unique and that each girl has an attitude and a style, and that they share the common motif of boots. I notice the details.

2. Bowser Jr. & Piranha Plant

Wow, what can I say. While I never thought much of Bowser Jr. as a character (although, I thought he was funny in New Super Mario Bros.), I think this costume is amazing. I just marvel at the time and effort it must’ve taken to sew the costume together; not to mention the unpleasantness of being in that thing for hours! The¬†Piranha plant is hilarious with its cute, sharp teeth.

1. Pimp Mario

This instantly-memorable costume just rules! The concept: take the beloved Mario character and mix him up with a slick pimp. What’s not to love? I can’t stop laughing! I wonder what Princess Peach would look like in this style..?
