San Diego Comic Con is a well known haven for cosplayers of all kinds, and aside from the several hundred cosplayers for comic book, film and television characters, there are also many from various video games of all types. Even the cosplayers in these pictures are just a fraction of the impressive cosplayers that were in attendance, some of which included Jessica Nigri in an awesome genderbent Roadhog cosplay, or even Stella Chuu in her Yuffie cosplay. There was even an amazing Reinhardt cosplayer with a gigantic set of armor with sound effects for his footsteps. Unfortunately, those and many others couldn’t be included in the gallery, either due to crowds, or just being hard to find a moment to get their picture. Despite this, we still have a hefty cosplay gallery with tons of characters.
Just from a general observation, it seems Overwatch was the most popular cosplay of choice, with some attendees even doing subtle cosplays like D.Va’s face paint or Mei’s hair pin. There were also many Street Fighter cosplayers, which is always great to see a good Chun-Li or M. Bison. Consent has been given by all the cosplayers in these photos and I have made sure to credit the cosplayer if they provided the information.
