    Jon Snow and Arya, pretty awesome! Also, just realized that was Marceline there at the end. Nice. I’d say my only beef is that it should be a bass, but it is still pretty bitchin.

    Another impressive line up this year. Captain America, Citizen V, Batman, Aquaman and Mera and Judge Campbell are particular stand outs for me.

    So many great costumes. Everyone who made this list should be mighty proud.

    Braniac and the Street Judge are the two that stick in my head the most.

    The background on Brainiac’s picture is the Metropolis city hall, Metropolis, IL that is. Kudos for an appropriate background.

    Two-Face? Anyone? Two-Face?

    Seriously though, that Ultron is amazing. Red Lantern Mera and the Brainiac are just kickass.

    The Orb!

    I have no idea who this character is, but awesome eye costume! Look at that thing. I mean, just look at it.

    The older daughter on the Rick Grimes picture looks like someone you don’t want to cross.
    I like the following because they have great costumes and put thought to the setting of their photo.
    Rick Grimes (and family)
    and The Orb

    All the costumes look good, but my favorite has to be randus.

    Being my favorite DC character I would have to go with the Aquaman & Mera. Love how they took the picture at an aquarium to get the undersea vibe.
