San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Day 3 – Costumes, girls, Disney Channel, zombies and more celebrity sightings

in Entertainment, Events, Movies, Television

With locals off work, Saturday is the busiest day of the San Diego Comic-Con, packing the convention center with countless costumed attendees. Cosplay is the name of the game for Day 3.

Each day of Comic-Con begins with a rush of hundreds of excited fans crossing Harbor Dr. from downtown toward the convention center. And on this third day, it’s extra entertaining to watch the mixture of plain clothes and costumes moving down the street.

Inside, it’s important to have a camera ready as the elaborate outfits being worn around the exhibition hall are impressive and quite photo-worthy.

This was the second San Diego Comic-Con to take place since Disney purchased Marvel, which was certainly a big deal for the comic fan crowd. So in that spirit, I offer a symbolic pair of photos featuring Ariel from above representing Disney, along with Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter, alongside a group of Marvel characters in a friendly meeting and even embrace:

And speaking of Marvel, everyone at San Diego Comic-Con seemed to be excited about the new “Captain America” movie, hitting theaters the same weekend that the convention was happening. One Marvel display featured a Captain America costume:

But it was throughout the hall that many Captain Americas (and variations thereof) could be found…

Any female version of a costume, particularly one showing off plenty of skin, instantly is a hit on the convention floor. And it’s often the case that when a girl in a tight outfit stops to pose for a single photo, a swarm of guys with cameras quickly gather around, each wanting a photo of their own. After the photo above, one of the girls above was heard saying, “That was overwhelming!” Indeed.

  1. After seeing the pics, I felt like i need to chime in. Every year, I promised myself that this is the year I will attend comic-con and every year, something always come up. The only way for me to experience comic-con is for someone like you posting awesome pictures in this post. So kudos for the awesome job especially the zombie one.
