Wow, this year’s London Super Comic Con looked like a lot of fun. Sneaky Zebra’s latest music video–which features a nice selection of all the different cosplay costumes that were spotted at the event–captures the Con’s fun vibe nicely too.

Watch the video after the break!

YouTuber DevinSuperTramp filmed this very cool Assassin’s Creed 4 parkour-style video at SDCC. But do you know what the best part is? Absolutely zero people in the video were fazed by having someone in cosplay leap over their heads. Oh, Comic-Con.

Check out all the Assassin’s Creed parkour action after the break…

Cosplayer Kristl Buluran attended Comic-Con down at San Diego this year dressed up as Mia from Evil Dead. And, yes, that’s Kristl chopping off Aisha Tyler’s head with a chainsaw that she made herself. And Aisha posted a pic of her being pretend-chainsawed to her Instagram too!

Check out a more detailed shot of Mia’s cosplay costume after the break…

The popular show The Venture Bros. had a panel at Comic-Con last week, and fans cosplaying characters from the series showed up in droves. They snapped some pictures together after the panel, and it’s fun to see a big group like this. They’ve got Dr. Girlfriend, The Monarch, and so many more. Shots like this are one reason why Comic-Con is an awesome event to attend.

Check out even more after the break.

One of many of my favorite parts about San Diego Comic-Con is seeing what talented cosplayers and creative folk do with the gigantic swag bags that come out each year. I’ve seen them turned into dresses, pants, capes, and now a jacket! I love the styling on this swag bag jacket, and I particularly appreciate the fact that the wearer decided to pair it with a bow tie and a sonic screwdriver.

I love when fan designs come to life! Kreugan posted some sketches of Disney princesses in superhero style outfits over two years ago on DeviantArt. This year at Comic-Con, his two dimensional designs translated to a hoarde of princesses ready to stand for good. Some of the costumes match the art pretty closely, and others just use the loose concept. The group numbered over a dozen (!), and I love the array of colors and cuts. They make one impressive cosplay group.

I like seeing costumes of all kinds at Comic-Con, but I especially like when little geeklings show up in style. It’s never too early to start dressing up your kid, and it seems like Captain America was a very popular choice this year.

Hopefully at least a few of these children will stick with cosplaying and wear costumes to conventions decades from now.

See a few more adorable photos after the break.

Group cosplays really seem to be the way to make a splash at big conventions like Comic-Con. Steampunk has become more and more popular, so it was only a matter of time before someone started a costuming group featuring steampunk/Victorian versions of DC Comics characters. The group included Green Arrow, Huntress, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Power Girl, Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, and more. They took the stage at the DC Comics booth and later battled a group of steampunk Marvel cosplayers. It looks like they all put crazy amounts of details into their costumes.

Robert Downey, Jr. can be quite the classy guy. He was at Comic-Con promoting Iron Man 3, and he took some time out of his schedule to surprise some kids at the Marvel booth. The kids were assembled at the booth for an Iron Man costume contest, and Downey showed up and surprised everyone. He took the time to talk to a few of the children, compliment a Sharpie goatee, and generally be a nice dude. The kids are obviously excited, and I’d imagine their parents flipped right out.

Full face masks give me the heebie-jeebies, and apparently the effect is even stronger if the masks look like owls. DC Comics gave away these Court of the Owls masks at Comic-Con during one of their panels. I spotted them around the convention floor, but I don’t read Batman and didn’t realize what the reference was. I’m glad I didn’t see them all together like this!

If you’d like to own one of these scary exclusives, you’re in luck! A few dozen people are auctioning their masks on eBay.

Check out Anthony Bourdain of all people modeling one of the masks after the break.
