D23 Expo 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

D23 Expo 2015 has come and gone. Some major announcements from Lucasfilm, Pixar, Walt Disney Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Marvel Studios were made and the attendance was fairly high for being only the fourth D23 Expo put on by the House of Mouse. Although there was a lot of traffic and more to see and do this year, I was overwhelmed with how few cosplayers there were. But I didn’t let that discourage me. I sought out the best and most creative for you fine folk to share with you today.

A lot has changed at the Walt Disney Company since the last D23 Expo in 2013. The Lucasfilm acquisition was less than a year old, Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe had just kicked off with Iron Man 3, and Avengers: Age of Ultron was just announced at San Diego Comic-Con. Since then we’ve had a new live action Cinderella movie; only one new Pixar film (Inside Out); Frozen became a worldwide phenomenon; a talking raccoon and a sentient tree stole the hearts of millions; and a new Star Wars trilogy was announced along with various one-off films in-between the trilogy entries. With all this in mind, I expected a lot of fun, creative cosplayers to be out and about. Here are some of my reflections:

  • The lighting was super poor all throughout the showroom floor
  • It was super hot and I give huge props to cosplayers who wore makeup and didn’t melt
  • Inside Out was definitely the most popular of the weekend
  • The Little Mermaid seems to be every cosplayers go-to Disney Princess
  • With Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora tied for second
  • Belle, Rapnuzel, and Jasmine close in tied for third
  • Ursula is the clear Disney Princess Villain cosplayers love the most
  • Where were all the mashups? Now that we have all these big properties together, I expected more!
  • There was some love for Big Hero 6, but little love for Wreck-It Ralph
  • That Sergeant Calhoun cosplay tho
  • I had no idea Princess Parties were a real thing until this weekend
  • I was surprised by the lack of Marvel/Star Wars cosplayers; I guess they all got their fill at Comic-Con
  • And I’m happy to see Zootopia already has one fan already

Funny Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Outtakes [Photo Gallery]

Just when you thought enough was enough, I’ve got a special Comic-Con 2015 cosplay outtakes photo gallery I know you will enjoy. While many photographers at SDCC prefer cosplayers to do action poses or some kind of stance in character, I like to bring a little more excitement into the mix by taking them out of character. And as much as their wonderful costumes speak to each individual’s own personality and tastes, my idea behind asking cosplayers to make a funny face or to do a silly pose is to bring a little more human element to their characters.

It’s also about letting cosplayers have more fun in their day and not having to do the same old pose. I’m not sure how it actually started, but I noticed when I began asking this of cosplayers that they were more than happy to oblige. I definitely enjoy seeing what everyone can come up with on the fly because each time is different. Certain characters such as the Survey Corps from Attack on Titan only have a few poses. Do you want to see Batman doing the same grim face or have him sticking his tongue out? Cinderella giving a stink face? No problem. Or how about Captain American taking a selfie? Asking cosplayers to do something out of the ordinary really opens the doors to their own creativity.

And that’s just my two cents. TL;DR? I want to give cosplayers the opportunity to be themselves and to have fun. That’s the point of this crazy madness of pop culture conventions, right? Make the fandom your own and have a blast doing it. I hope you enjoy the cosplay outtakes!

Sunday Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

We finally made it. The final day of San Diego Comic-Con 2015. I hope you’ve survived the marathon of lines, panels, convention center food, celebrity sightings, big surprises, various smells, and more lines. What I’ve got for you is the last day of cosplay pics of all the wonderful, spectacular, inventive, creative, and magical people I met this Sunday. And don’t you worry, this may be the last day of SDCC, but this is not the final set of coplay pics I’ve got in the works. Stay tuned for more!

Weekend reflections:

  • For those who managed to go the distance and attend all four and a half days, I applaud your energy to keep cosplaying!
  • Again, Mad Max: Fury Road costumes continued to pop up, but I was surprised with the overall lack of Attack on Titan scout regiment troops.
  • I’m also shocked that I only ran into one person in a Star Trek uniform. Where were all the Trekkies at? I may have not been paying attention enough, but I really didn’t see anyone in Trek garb other than the one in the gallery below.
  • No love for The Fantastic Four at all either. I saw two Doctor Dooms the entire weekend.
  • And where are all the Avatar/Legend of Korra fans?
  • There was also a lack in Deadpools and Doctors too!
  • Harley Quinn is the new Slave Leia; last year it was Daenerys Targaryen.
  • I wish I encountered more mashups, but I think 2015 was the year for genderbends and crossplaying.
  • I really should start watching more anime and play more video games.
  • You can’t do Bane properly unless you can do the crazy eyes, as seen below.
  • Cosplayers dressed as Septa Unella made the weekend for me. SHAME!

Saturday Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

Whoa, we’re half way there. Saturday marks the beginning of the end. There’s still so much to do and see, and yet you know in the back of your mind that this glorious playground of geekdom ends the following day. So I did my best to find as many unique and fun cosplayers as I could despite my busy schedule.

Two goals for the weekend were met in one day as I wanted to catch up with the Reel Guise team, who do a wonderful group cosplay of The Walking Dead, and I also wanted to stumble upon a large meetup group of a large quantity of cosplayers. #AchievementsUnlocked

Day reflections:

  • I’ve never had good timing or knowledge to know when the big cosplay meetups were happening. But this time I was lucky and caught the Game of Thrones and DC Heroes and Villains meetups. I’ll be posting those pics in a separate post because I took so many
  • I’m still surprised by the lack of Attack on Titan cosplayers!
  • Mad props to the Reel Guise folks, their similarities to the cast of The Walking Dead are uncanny
  • I’m glad I brought a notebook because there are so many first-timers who didn’t have cosplay cards
  • Who knew Splatoon was popular enough that people would want to cosplay as the characters. There’s fandoms for everything. They looked good too!
  • More Mad Max: Fury Road cosplays!

Friday Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

Let’s continue, shall we? When we last met, I shared with you all the incredible cosplayers from Preview Night and Thursday of Comic-Con 2015. We had to combine the day and a half excursion due to thinly spread costumed fans. Luckily, we didn’t have to search far on Friday to catch the many attendees dressed – or some undressed – to the nines in their favorite cosplay attire.

Disney Princesses, X-Men, DC villains, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Studio Ghibli, and The Legend of Korra fans flocked to the San Diego Convention Center to strut their stuff. And for those looking beyond the usual, there were plenty of characters that reach all fandoms. With the budding success of Mad Max: Fury Road, I was happy to see more cosplayers taking on characters from the incredible film – my review.

Day reflections:

  • The folks from Nerd Chat Cosplay rocked it again
  • There was a spot on Agent Coulson cosplayer
  • Despite being an abundance of Harley Quinns everywhere you look, they’re always so creative
  • I will never look at the Droogs from A Clockwork Orange the same again
  • Mixing bodypaint and fandom to promote your mobile app is pretty smart if used correctly, as seen below
  • It’s incredible how some people can make human versions of Pokémon cute
  • The Samus Aran I met was very well done
  • I’m shocked by the lack of Kill la Kill and Attack on Titan
  • Spider-Gwen was also a huge hit at WonderCon. They’re pretty absent at SDCC
  • It’s my Dick in a Box!

Preview Night and Thursday Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

This is the moment you’ve all been preparing for people. San Diego Comic-Con. The grandaddy of them all. The place for cosplayers from around the globe to show the world what they’ve got. Turn The Right Corner will be on the scene all SDCC weekend to capture images of cosplayers in their natural environment.

As I trekked out into the sea of people downtown San Diego, I noticed that there didn’t seem to be as many cosplayers out and about during Preview Night or on Thursday. I remained vigilant, and scoured inside and outside of the convention center to ensure we found the best cosplayers of the weekend. Although there were many awesome cosplayers, much of what I found related to X-Men, The Avengers, Batman and DC villains, and Star Wars. Of course, I was most happy to run into an incredible Mad Max: Fury Road family group. They were fantastic!

Star Wars Celebration 2015: Cosplay Photo Gallery

Star Wars Celebration 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

Sadly, I could only attend one day of Star Wars Celebration this year, but I did my best to capture some of the best cosplayers from across the galaxy who converged in Anaheim, CA this past weekend. There were many great variations of Sith Lords and Boba Fetts, proving it’s good to be bad. And we’re even beginning to see the popularity of The Force Awakens grow as some took the liberty to dress up as Rey (pictured above) with what little we’ve seen from the film. See the full gallery of cosplayers after the break. Continue reading

Sadly, I could only attend one day of Star Wars Celebration this year, but I did my best to capture some of the best cosplayers from across the galaxy who converged in Anaheim, CA this past weekend. There were many great variations of Sith Lords and Boba Fetts, proving it’s good to be bad. And we’re even beginning to see the popularity of The Force Awakens grow as some took the liberty to dress up as Rey (pictured above) with what little we’ve seen from the film.

Star Wars Celebration 2015 cosplay observations:

  • I saw more Boba Fett variations then Slave Leias
  • We need more Sith Samurai combos
  • As much as I enjoy seeing traditional Star Wars cosplay, I love seeing fandom crossovers with Marvel and Disney; it’s exciting to see the creativity
  • Jedis need to start coming up with new variations of their cosplays. I know there are many kinds of Sith Lords and Boba Fett has different kinds of color variations, but come on Jedi, have more fun with it!
  • There never are any male Ewok cosplayers
  • Rey from The Force Awakens is going to be a huge cosplay idea for San Diego Comic-Con
  • Couldn’t escape Frozen, of course
  • Twi’leks are a very popular race to cosplay as
  • That Darth Maul Trooper scared the poop out of that baby

WonderCon 2015 Sunday Cosplay Photo Gallery Images

And on the third day, Easter Day, WonderCon cosplayers did not rest. They were not finished with their work as one final day of the con was left to explore and enjoy. There were a good handful of creative Easter Bunny/Jesus cosplay parodies roaming the Anaheim Convention Center. And like Saturday at WonderCon, from a legion of Deadpools to Warrior Disney Princesses, Sunday was also full of really inspiring fans who put in a lot of time into their costumes. Check out our photo gallery after the break. Continue reading

And on the third day, Easter Day, WonderCon cosplayers did not rest. They were not finished with their work as one final day of the con was left to explore and enjoy. There were a good handful of creative Easter Bunny/Jesus cosplay parodies roaming the Anaheim Convention Center. And like Saturday at WonderCon, from a legion of Deadpools to Warrior Disney Princesses, Sunday was also full of really inspiring fans who put in a lot of time into their costumes.

Observations that occurred:

  • I find X-23 and Psylocke to be my favorite of the X-Men cosplays I see at conventions, for reasons. Kitty Pryde is also great.
  • Cosplayers who dress up as Valka from How to Train Your Dragon 2 go all out.
  • Deadpool cosplayers ran amok more on Sunday compared to Saturday. I’m sure it had something to do with Easter, obviously…
  • We need more Fullmetal Alchemist cosplayers. C’mon people!
  • It’s always nice to see widely popular characters that no one regularly cosplays out in the wild, like Lydia from Beetlejuice or Daria.
  • Until this weekend, I never noticed how many people crossplay.
  • I saw two Negans running around on Sunday. Fans of The Walking Dead series are in for a treat that only comic readers have been privy too, and I predict we’ll see an influx of that character at cons soon – just like the Governor.
  • It was cool to meet Robert Franzese, the real Peter Griffin.
  • I’m surprised I didn’t see more appearances from Peggy Carter.
  • There were very few Doctor Who fans running around, which is quite abnormal.
  • And finally, I hope that after Star Wars Episode VII that people will find someone new to cosplay as other than Boba Fett.

And for those who are reading this for the first time and did not check out our cosplay photo gallery from Saturday at WonderCon 2015: you’ll notice a lot of cosplayers doing goofy poses or making funny, derp faces. I try to make it fun for cosplayers to breakaway from their action poses and bring in a humanizing factor to represent them as fans and people rather than just random people dressing up in costume. This series of abnormal poses has created some really fun character moments for both cosplayers and fans alike. I hope you enjoy!
