If you've been to Comic Con, and sat in the Hall H line, you're probably familiar with the religious nuts with the megaphones and the signs. last year and this year, some hilarious opposition showed up


Last year this teriffic guy showed up and mimed to the Hall H line what idiots the religious nuts with megaphones were... below you can see him shooting them with his fingers




This year some guys made cardboard signs that read Kneel Before Zod, Galactus is Nigh, and Godzilla Saves

My favorite costumes from Comic Con 2013




I saw Fred Flintstone again this year!


But I did not see the Tooth Fairy this year


she said it took 250 hours to make this costume



These are my favorites from last years photos I took, http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2013/07/best-costumes-i-came-across-at-comic.html

The Time Lords performing "12"



with nerd love to Rip Curl 808 / Dani - Girl for posting this!

Giant Monsters All Out Attack





To read about these women and their winning skit at Masquerade: http://comicsbeat.com/sdcc-14-giant-monsters-win-the-masquerade/ 

“Giant Monsters All Out Attack” — Lisa Truong, Lynleigh Sato, Wendy Colon, and Cindy Purchase. As should be evident in the admittedly fuzzy picture above, the costumes were not literal recreations of the four monsters’ film design, and their mode of wreaking havoc was more akin to a chaste burlesque than wanton carnage. However, it is precisely this blend of playfulness and novelty that made their designs stand out.

Marvel had a costume contest Saturday about 530pm to 7pm



One of my favorite cosplayers is at the 3 minute mark, the janitor of SHIELD




Some of my favorite coplayers and costumes from 2014








Fallen Stars, a musical duo making an original song for each episode of Firefly, and one for the movie Serenity
