Over the past few years, we’ve seemed to notice a bit of a decline in cosplay at various conventions but especially at San Diego Comic-Con. This year in particular was noticeable due partly to the change in the secured area requiring badges being pushed out further into the Gas Lamp district. Since many cosplayers often don’t have credentials they were forced out of the easily accessible areas of the Convention Center.

Still, there were a whole bunch of fans who braved summer heat to share their fandom with their fellow geeks. Everything form Disney to Marvel to Star Wars and beyond. We have them organized into four sections. ENJOY!
