Comic Con ‘08 Cosplay Comedy!

Well Comic Con 2008 just wrapped up and while the main attraction might be the exclusive new video game footage, sneak peaks at next summer’s biggest comic book movies and a chance to get an autograph from Hacksaw Jim Duggan, the REAL stars are the cosplayers. Basking somewhere in the nebulous gray area between brilliance and depravity lies the art of dressing up like your favorite video game or comic book character and walking around in public. Cosplaying was invented in the year 1507 by Ferdinand Magellan as an excuse to explain his awkward cross dressing tendencies as he sailed the earth and ironically named a “Strait” after himself. That’s actually a total lie. Read on for more pictures of these costumed crazies.
