It’s nerd Christmas everybody! San Diego Comic-Con is upon us!! What was once an annual gathering of the detritus of human kind has become the main driving force of our culture–130,000 attendees descend on San Diego to join the biggest celebrities in the world for a convention that is nominally built around comics and sci-fi but actually reflects everything going on in pop-culture.
Everybody dresses up, everyone is there to have fun, and Southern California becomes a magical carnival of sci-fi excess for a week. To celebrate and join in on the fun, because we know you weren’t able to score one of the coveted tickets, we’re throwing up some our fave funny Comic Con GIFS of the past!
Back when Breaking Bad was still on the air, the show’s star, Bryan Cranston wondered the floor of the convention completely unrecognizable due to his brilkliant disguise. …which consisted of a rubber-mask of his own face.
We’re unsure if Batman is separating these Robins to keep them from fighting or rutting.
Fans love to goof around at the convention and dress up as the comedic superhero, Deadpool .
Some costumes are very accurate and amazing…which makes them a little creepy!
Other’s put far less effort into their cosplay like this Batman costume made from garbage bags and a ski mask.
Not a costume per se, but every year is full of many of these ‘m-ladys’ who tip their hat to every woman in a costume, as it may be the only time of the year they interact with a female.
This Iron Man cosplay demonstrates and proves the principle of “so bad it’s good!”
Late night host Conan O’Brien brings his talk show to tape at Comic-Con. This is how he arrived for the first taping. Subtly.
The con’s been plagued with attention seeking nutty religious protesters in recent years…
but they’re no match for these awesome heroes.
Celebs have just as much fun as everyone else,
and get to appreciate their fans on a whole new level.
Plus, it’s family friendly and kids get to play as much as the adults too. Check out this little killing machine dressed up as the Predator.
