Seek shelter and cover head. Do not taunt the Robot Overlord.


  1. Fun fact that you can’t really see in the picture:
    Hawkman has a tiny Atom figurine sitting on his belt pouch on the right side of his body. It’s the subtle touches like that, showing how much you care about the character, that really make the costume.

    That being said, my favorite costume on here is probably either G’Nort or the duct tape Batgirl. I stood with her in line on Saturday morning and she was really nice; we had a debate about the merits of the various Robins. I still stand by my belief that Damian is a fun character, at least in the sense of having him team up with other characters (ie. Stephanie Brown, Supergirl, etc). He’s also cool in that we get to see Dick Grayson mentor him.

    • Allllright, Jimmy. I’ll finally concede to you that Damian isn’t the worst character. It just pains me to think of any non-Batman/Catwoman pairing. Hahaha, but yeah, I’ve been reading more and more comics with Damian in them, and he’s got some great comedic value.

      And of course, since he gets to train with Dick, that’s adorable.

      Glad I got to talk to you in line :)

      -Cindy (Duct Tape Batgirl)

      • So how insanely hot was that duct tape Batgirl suit to wear around all day? You look great in it by the way; it just seems like it’d be hot. Breatheability isn’t usually a big selling point for duct tape. ;)

        • Thanks! Yeah, that costume is bloody hot; luckily I tend to be cold instead of hot, but the venue was exceptionally sunny. I spent about 2 hours in a very dark panel room, which was bliss.

          But I only had it on for about 6 hours total (not counting the hour it took to get into it), which wasn’t too horrible. I’ve got experience being a school mascot, and I’d daresay the mascot costume is about 40% warmer than the duct tape costumes I’ve made. So all in all, it wasn’t too bad for me, but I’m sure other people might get overwhelmed if they overheat easily.

  2. Great costumes, kudos to those fans, across the known universes of Comics, Sci Fi, TV Shows, and movies. I liked a bunch of them esp Magneto passes out from to much schnapps. Doctor Doom and Darkseid, “What are we going to do tonight Doom, Tonight Darkseid we rule the WORLD!!!!” Godzilla making his way back from Japan no wonder why he passed out…

  3. Anyone willing to dress up as G’Nort Esplanade G’neeshmacher is okay by me!!

    At one con I saw a girl with a little stuffed squirrel thing as Ch’p, but I’d never seen anyone try G’nort before.
