People often ask me why I bother with these costumed attendees. The answer is simple. It's about fun.
These people have such a great time dressing like a certain superhero or character. Some really get into it big time. Many are just as big of an attraction as some of the stars. Many spend a good part of their day there posing with other fans.
Anyone in Aquaman attire is a must-get picture for me, but I also stray to other characters, too. Last year we saw one of the best Wonder Woman characters. She had a great look. She went with the realistic look, eschewing any over-the-top possibilities as I have seen others use. Her outfit was appropriate for all ages. I'm not a prude, but I prefer this to the sleazy look-at-me costumes I have seen some women (and worse...some men) attendees wear.
I will be looking out for more costumed greatness at this year's event. Wouldn't it be cool if someone came as Johngy? Okay, maybe more scary than cool...
