Our Favorite Cosplays From Comic-Con 2016

sdccheader

San Diego International Comic-Con is by far the granddaddy of them all when it comes to showcasing the best of geek and nerd culture, and the 2016 edition was no exception. With an estimated 130,000+ attendees roaming the San Diego Convention Center and its surrounding areas, professional and amateur cosplayers alike always strive to bring their best and most elaborate costumes to showcase at the massive convention. And while we’ve seen some pretty impressive costumes at the smaller conventions this year, nothing compares to the showmanship, creativity, and nostalgia we encountered while at Comic-Con.

Jho Estrada and I asked dozens of cosplayers to pose for That Geek Show, but we could only select eleven to make our 2016 ‘best of’ list, and they did not disappoint. You can check out our top picks below, and be sure to tell us your favorites in the comments or on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
