Another pop-culture eruption has come and gone in Seattle, but Blastr can still help you feel like you were part of the epic action with this gallery of all the greatest costumed fans wandering the show floor this weekend at Emerald City Comic Con. While the event has always had a strong cosplay presence with the annual costume contest, this was the first year that the convention played host to new owner ReedPop’s Western Championships of Cosplay. That meant the creativity and innovation was out in full force this year, even for the many who didn’t take part in the competition.
The cascade of costumes ranged from adorable to imposing, and characters ranged from comics to cartoons, videogames and movies for a spectacular spectrum of great looks. Let us know your favorites in the comments below, and be sure to check out the rest of my coverage from the show and the ECCC-sponsored Image Expo, including interviews with comics legend Howard Chaykin and rockstar Gerard Way on their new comics.
