A gaggle of geeks invaded Philadelphia for Wizard World this weekend, rushing into the Philadelphia Convention Center to shop a show floor that was filled with comics, toys, nerd shirts, and some awesome handmade products (more on that later). The show was also blessed with special guests like The Walking Dead‘s Derle and Merle aka Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, Firefly‘s Gina Torres and Summer Glau, legends like Stan Lee and William Shatner, and several others. With all of that said, though, what I really want to talk about are the ingenious creations that were worn by Philly’s cosplayers.
Several people came to share their love of their favorite characters with everything from homemade extreme costumes to ordinary store bought options. There was an abundance of Poison Ivy, Spider-Man, Deadpool, and Joker cosplay but not as many Wonder Woman cosplayers, anime characters, and Time Lords as I’m used to. Who knows, maybe the Whovians were in mourning.
As for my personal favorites: Poison Ivy, the kick-ass Blade cosplayer, and an epic battle between Marvel and DC sprint to mind. Check out the gallery below for those pics and so many more shots of the best cosplay from Philadelphia Wizard World.
