Josh and I attended our first Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas in May! It was full of really creative costume designs. Everyone had a unique twist on their favorite character and it was fun to talk to them about their choices. Here are our personal costume votes…
Scariest Costume we saw was Flesh-eating Zombie Dude. There was a booth set up to do really neat zombie makeup. When this guy was done, he started eating himself!
There were 2 that get the Most Original Costume nomination…Beetlejuice and Mario (loved that he had a star). Classic!
Best Superhero Costumes that we saw were Batman, Racer X, and the Green Lantern. All of them had their signature pose ready for any and all pictures. It was as if they had done this before. . .
Best Build goes to Starfox and the Green Goblin. These were awesome designs! The guy in the starfox costume buried his head in the sand on a beach in order to get a good mold of his head and when he talked the jaw on the costume actually moved!
Josh and my personal favorite costumes were a little lesser known. I would be surprised if even 5% of those that attended Comicpalooza knew who these characters are.
Jack Carter from the TV series “Eureka”, complete with a Eureka Sheriffs Badge, arm patch and Sheriff’s ID card. And Josh’s hero, Dr. Horrible from “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog”. If you haven’t seen it then you are in for a treat! You can watch it on Hulu or youtube free! It’s 3 parts, 15 minutes each. You’ll be singing the songs for weeks.
Best True-to-Movie StarWars Costumes goes to…
And Last but not least…the Most Unique Costume Design Twist was Evil Thing 1 and Thing 2.
There were tons of fun costumes and props and, unfortunately, hunger got the best of us and we missed the actual costume contest which had some tough competition.
I hope you take some time to comment below on the costume you like the most and why!
