Comic-Con 2012 Cosplay Day 1
The first day of Comic-Con 2012 is in the books and the cosplay is already at an impressive clip. From the most obscure comic book characters to The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen to all of your favorite cartoon characters, there’s never a shortage of great homemade costumes at San Diego.
Some trends noticed today are the abundant amount of Adventure Time couples wearing Finn hats all over the campus and a surprisingly a few more fans of the classic Flinstones than I thought existed at Comic-Con, at least enough to make and wear giant moo-moo outfit with dinosaur print. Maybe it was their way of beating the heat? Video game characters are so popular from the full-on armor suits of Halo to a fleet of kids old and young, wearing cardboard Minecraft helmets.
Here is a sample of some of what we saw on Preview Night and Day 1; click on the thumbnail to enlarge. There will be many more to come, so be sure to check back for more cosplay greatness throughout the week at BuzzFocus.
