SDCC 2014

They Live Wonder Woman

I’ve seen zombie Wonder Woman, steampunk Wonder Woman, pin-up Wonder Woman – you get the idea. However, Comic-Con cosplayers never fail to surprise me. Dorkly turned up a photo of Wonder Woman as one of the They Live aliens, and it’s kind of fantastic.

Celebrities like to experience Comic-Con too, but the only way they can do so without being mobbed is to put on a costume. Peter Jackson walked around on Saturday as an Evil Jester, and no one suspected a thing. The director posted the following on his Facebook page:

“I had a fun day at Comic Con walking among you all. Did anyone see the Evil Jester? Some of you did because you asked him to pose for pics! Cheers, Peter J”

But where’s Mia Wallace? Well, knowing SDCC, she’s probably stuck in a line somewhere.

The first thing I saw was the wings and I started walking that way because, well, wings. But when I saw the hair and the trenchcoat and realized what this cosplay was about, I admit to running a bit because I just had to have a picture.

The coolest part of this cosplay? She had a hidden pulley system to extend the wings, so I was lucky and got them full out.

On an interesting side note, I was on my way to a Supernatural press event at SDCC when I saw this cosplay and then it started to rain almost immediately after I took this shot. Talk about supernatural.

I’m minding my own business heading from one side of SDCC to the other and all of a sudden I spy this cosplay rolling up to my right and I was being told to bow down.

I took a picture. Then I got out of there as soon as possible.

I love SDCC.

UPDATE: Official high-res image added.

The pic is terrible as it’s a screenshot straight from the WB panel at SDCC, but it gives you an idea of what Gal Gadot is going to look like as Wonder Woman. Check out another pic that includes Superman and Batman after the break.

We are huge fans of Darling Army’s cosplay pinafores and kimono dresses, and we love that she’s cosplaying as Sailor Deadpool at SDCC this year. Brilliant!

Thanks for the tip Amanda!

HU fashion show 12

Her Universe brought geeky haute couture to San Diego Comic-Con last night with its first ever fashion show. Hosted at a room in the Hyatt by Her Universe, Hot Topic, and Nerdist, the event showcased work from both amateur and professional designers and took a moment to show off new items in the Her Universe collection – including a peek at apparel from their Studio Ghibli partnership.

The designers entered a contest online with a chance to participate in the fashion show and win the opportunity to work with Her Universe and Hot Topic to design a line of geek chic apparel. There were 36 designers, and they didn’t kid around. There were dresses and ensembles based on characters such as Marty McFly, Doctor Doom, Death, Kara Thrace, Loki, and so many more. Some outfits incorporated LEDs and impressive transformations, and more than a few of them included dangerous looking high heels. I was floored by the creativity on display.

There were a dazzling array of haute couture designs, and it was lovely to see geek apparel get fashion week treatment. I’ve never been to a show like this, but the runway and sea of blinking flashes from cameras looked just like what I’ve seen on television. I think these designs were much cooler than most (with the possible exception of the Rodarte Star Wars dresses).

The Evil Queen and Marty McFly took home top prizes. Designer Andrew MacLaine created a look based on Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time. The dress changed from an everyday look to a stunning black ensemble. The transformation made the crowd go wild. Amy Beth Christenson came up with a rocking design that captured the essence of Back to the Future; it looked futuristic and awesome – the crowd oohed and aahed when the ensemble made its entrance onto the runway.

See several hot looks from the runway after the break.
