Over Labor Day I had the opportunity to attend the first ever Geekinomicon in Oklahoma City. Here are your cosplay candidates courtesy of DC Marvel League, photo by Squirrelly Jedi Photography. These lovely folks comprised a large portion of the cosplayers there on Saturday when this was taken, many of them belonging to other charity costuming groups as well.
Tumps: I have to recuse myself. I have had the honor of being a member of the League for a few months now, and you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of heroes (and villains). While I have my personal favorites, they are mostly based on my interactions with those people and do not reflect the quality or time the others have put into their costumes. It would be unfair to everyone for me to choose.
Josh: I choose Batman. Because Batman. Which Batman?… maybe you’ll never know! Just kidding, I just wanted to confuse you for a second. And while Batman is among my favorite heroes (and any Knightmare Batman will be among my favorite cosplays) I have to tip my hat to Scarecrow and Dr Doom. Once again I am a sap for costumes you just don’t see very much. Both appear to have taken a lot of craftmanship but Dr Doom brings it up a notch having to do the metal. I choose you, Dr Doomachu.
Dustin: First, I got to say that this is a great group shot. I love how diverse the costumes are though it could certainly use some more Cyclops. There is never enough Cyclops cosplay. I would choose Cyclops as the winner even if the cosplayer had done nothing more than put on a pair of red-tinted sunglasses. But, alas, there is no Cyclops. So I’ll go with the runner-up: Dr. Doom. Because that’s pretty legit costuming right there.
Joey: Hank McCoy/Beast. That guy painted himself blue da bu dee da bu die.
