San Diego Comic Con – The biggest and best show for everything Comic, Film & Video related took place last week. With some amazing cosplayers attending too! Sneaky Zebra has put together a great music video showcasing some of the best cosplayers they came across at SDCC.

Zipping between the +San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park – home of +Geek & Sundry and +Nerdist – they’ve caught on camera some of the finest looking cosplay wandering the streets and halls of the convention. They even nabbed some screen time from Chris Hardwick, Adam Savage (incognito as Judge Dredd), Stephen Amell and a nod from Stan Lee(more…)

The nerd media mayhem that is San Diego Comic Con 2015 is in full swing. While eyes are glued to screens feasting on the latest movie studio and television news, SDCC is just as well known for its mass of cosplayers; nerdy boys and girls who’ve donned (self made) costume of their favorite heroes and pop culture characters.

Collected here is a compilation of the most curious and ambiguous cosplays from the convention floor. From crafty, to clever, to the downright weird. This selection of masquerading marauders demands your attention and respect.  (more…)
