Standout Cosplay Costumes of Comic-Con 2012

Batman

Every year, San Diego is ransacked with people attending Comic-Con and this year was no exception. One of the biggest highlights in addition to convening with your fellow fans, meeting celebrities and attending panels filled with show-runners, is the cosplay. The convention is like no other, welcoming adults and children alike to dress up as their favorite fictional characters in broad daylight. It's like Halloween in summer!

Fans stream into the convention fully adorned in the most eye-catching, often hand-made, costumes and make-up, depicting the most outlandish characters out there. At this year's Comic-Con, there were hoards of visitors replicating characters that ranged anywhere from classic comic book heroes like Batman to internet memes like hipster Disney princesses. No fictitious personality is off bounds at this convention and attendees made sure to cover all grounds. while it's nearly impossible to share every costumed individual that showed up at the con this year, check out some of the most elaborate cosplayers that made it out, below.
