One of my favorite things about SDCC and cons in general is the cosplay.  I love watching how ingenious some people get and the effort they put into creating their costumes.  Another thing is the wide variety of the characters you see.  You can definitely get the pulse of the hottest trends by seeing how many of one particular character you see.

You can always be guaranteed to see a fair share of Slave Leia and Starfleet officers.  Batman and The Joker are always fan favorites along with countless other comic book heroes and villains.  I wonder how many Daenerys Targaryens there will be in San Diego this year?

Here is a small sampling of the cosplayers at this year’s SDCC courtesy of Comic Vine.  You can see the rest of the 400+ pics here.
