To get you in the spirit for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, we’ve collected some of the best cosplay from cons past. From Pennywise to Lego Scully and Mulder accompanied a Reticulian (we want to believe), and everyone between ‘em in the photoset above, these congoers went all out. And this is just the tip of the wig and polyester iceberg. To see the rest of our cosplay coverage from past SDCCs, NYCCs and beyond, head on over to our cosplay tag! 

What cosplays do you want to see this year from SDCC? We’ll keep an eye out for the top picks while we roam the con floor!

Con season is here! Whether it’s your first or twenty-first, small-scale or SDCC-massive, we hope your con experiences are spectacular. To help get you through it, we’re speaking with con-goers from all different places to share their top five con essentials. To see the whole series, check out the tag #What’s In My Bag.

Tasha a.k.a. Princess Helicopter: Cosplayer

Tasha (@princesshelicopter) is a Californian cosplayer, engineering student, and general pop culture fanatic. This year will be her sixth time attending (and cosplaying) at the con. As a fan of film, comics, games, and awesome costume builds, she feels right at home at Comic-Con and loves to bring her A-game every year with a new cosplay. Here is what she cannot leave home without:

  • Costume tool kit: Usually consisting of tape, glue, scissors, and anything else I might need to fix my costume in a pinch in case something falls apart (which it always does).
  • Water: An absolute MUST if you’re spending a whole day on your feet in a hot, crowded venue.
  • Lots of snacks: Convention food is expensive, and food truck lines can take hours to get through, so bringing my own lunch has always helped me save time and money at cons!
  • Makeup: I’m lucky if half my face of makeup hasn’t melted off after a couple of hours at the convention, so I always make sure I’m ready to reapply.
  • Friends: Technically, these won’t fit inside a bag but are most important for an enjoyable con-experience (particularly when they hold your bag if you’re wearing an uncomfortable costume like I usually am)!

Tasha, thank you so much for sharing your con must-haves with us! If you’re attending SDCC, you can find her wandering around the exhibit hall, hopefully going to a few panels, and taking lots and lots of photos!

Elizabeth Minkel & Flourish Klink — co-hosts of Fansplaining

Elizabeth Minkel (@elizabethminkel) is a journalist who writes about fan culture. Flourish Klink (@flourish) does audience research for major media franchises. Together they co-host Fansplaining (@fansplaining), a bi-weekly podcast that explores what it means to be a fan—or a part of fandom—through conversations with writers, academics, fan creators, people from the entertainment industry, and more. As SDCC veterans, these are the five things they agree you need at any con:

  • A spare battery. “Hall H is like a black hole that consumes no matter, only energy, specifically the energy stored in your cell phone battery. Be wilier than a black hole and never experience the despair of a dead phone.”
  • Sewing kit and stain remover. “‘What am I, a grandma?’ you scoff. Then, you remember grandmas are good, and also ANGELS OF MERCY to cosplayers who have suffered costume malfunctions. Or to people who partied a little too hard and got nacho cheese down their white shirt, which they must wear for the next 10 hours lest they lose their spot in line.”
  • A sweater. “We have never known a winter like air-conditioned Southern California in July.”
  • Sunscreen. “You might think that you are going for a quick jaunt behind the convention center, or maybe you want to take a few minutes to gaze thoughtfully at the sparkling bay while you contemplate what panel to attend, and instead you will step outside and are trapped in THE ENDLESS RELENTLESS DIRECT SUNLIGHT BEATING DOWN ON YOUR NOSE, SHOULDERS, AND ALL OTHER PARTS THAT ARE NOT COVERED BY YOUR NOT-PARTICULARLY-BREATHABLE SAILOR MOON COSPLAY. No matter what you will feel like you are walking through the desert for 1,000 years, but at least you can rest easy knowing you will not burn.”
  • A sharpie. “You never know when you’ll need a celebrity to sign your…body.”

Thank you to Elizabeth and Flourish for sharing your con must-haves! 

Tumblr, If you’re attending SDCC, you should know Fansplaining will be hosting a panel on Friday, titled “Don’t Dream It’s Over: What Fandoms Do When Long-Running Stories End.” On Saturday, they will also be hosting their second-annual Fansplaining meetup at 6 p.m. at the Marriott Marquis pool bar. Honestly, you can probably find them there whenever they’re not inside the convention center.

Not attending SDCC? We can be your eyes and ears. Follow our SDCC2019 coverage here on @fandom as well as Tumblr’s Instagram and Twitter to watch all the action!

Con season is here! Whether it’s your first or twenty-first, small-scale or SDCC-massive, we hope your con experiences are spectacular. To help get you through it, we’re speaking with congoers from all different places to share their top five con essentials. To see the whole series, check out the tag #What’s in My Bag. First up? Our very own Head of Content Insights and Social Media!

Amanda Brennan — Head of Content Insights and Social, Tumblr

Amanda Brennan (@continuants) has been at Tumblr since 2013 and brought @fandom’s Fandometrics to life in 2015. She currently leads the social and content team, highlighting the best Tumblr content on other social platforms. This year will be her fifth San Diego Comic Con, and fourth covering it for Tumblr. 

Amanda, what are the five most important things to bring when covering a fan convention?

  • An extra battery. “When you’re running around the con floor from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. with three (and sometimes four!) phones, you’re bound to run out of juice. Multiple battery packs are KEY to surviving the day.”
  • A glass water bottle. “Yeah, it’s heavy to carry around, but staying hydrated is important. Fill it up at the water fountains and keep going, especially before venturing outside!”
  • Fruit snacks and bars. “When you’re doing social, you’re usually stacking up your meetings back to back all over the con floor. Carrying a couple bars is important when it’s 3 p.m. and you realize you haven’t eaten lunch. Also, I’m from New Jersey—convention center pizza is not pizza.”
  • Lip balm. “I pretty much always have one in every pocket.”
  • Locking pin backs. “I’m bound to buy an exclusive pin somewhere on the floor. Locking pin backs ensure I can put them on right away and not lose them before I make it back home!”

Thank you, Amanda, for sharing your con must-haves! 

Tumblr, if you’re attending SDCC, you just might find her somewhere on the con floor. Follow along here on @fandom as well as Tumblr’s Instagram and Twitter to watch all the action!

Let’s reminisce about last year’s San Diego Comic-Con!

Last year, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Agnes Garbowska (@agnesgarbowska) at the IDW Publishing booth as she live sketched fan fave Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony.

Keep your eyes peeled for more brand new live draws as well as cosplay, Funko, and general 2019 Comic-Con coverage over on Tumblr’s official spot for all things fandom, @fandom.

PS, if you’re one of the lucky 130,000 people heading to SDCC2019, you can find Agnes at this year’s con in Artist Alley at D-1.

The panels are great, Hall H is dope, and Artist Alley is full of gems, but the real heart and soul of San Diego Comic-Con? Cosplay. The con is full of wonderful people who put so much time, resources, and money into these costumes. Here’s our love letter to the best of the best we’ve seen at SDCC this weekend. 

Thanks to @princesshelicopter, x_undine_x, divine.miss.hatter, arteetmarteduos, meshellwaffleo, jt_otero, and everyone else for taking a moment to pose for our cameras. Photos by @brianguido.

There is ONE week left until Comic-Con! What cosplay are you most excited to see this year?

A quick note

Next week on @fandom, we’ll be focusing on all things San Diego Comic-Con, looking back at cons past before we switch gears to this year’s convention next Thursday. We’ll be back with regular lists on July 22nd.

(ETA: We’re so excited for SDCC2019, we made a tiny mistake! Our regular lists will return July 29th, not July 22nd.)
