San Diego Comic-Con 2012: The Best of the Best Features

San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2012 had another hugely successful year with beautiful weather, tons of industry guests (including Stan Lee, Robert Downey Jr., Joss Whedon, and more), thousands of attendees, and tons of cosplayers. SDCC isn’t typically a cosplay-centric convention because the crowds of over 130,000+ people make it difficult to do any kind of hallway (let alone private) photo shoots at the vast San Diego Convention Center.

But that didn’t stop some of these cosplay photographers from doing it in amazing ways! We present the Top 5 Best of the Best from Comic-Con for you.

We believe that epic cosplays are about bringing your favorite fantasy characters to life and, through the latest mediums like digital photography and videography, sharing that with the world. We seek to foster a community of talented individuals who wish to promote the art of cosplay and photography.


  1. The Harley Quinn cosplayer in the final photo is WindoftheStars, I believe, to give her credit.
