Paul created this amazing Ghostbusters costume, complete with working LEDs and a(n intentionally) smoking ghost capture device.
At New York Comic Con this past weekend, cosplayers flaunted some pretty incredible homemade costumes. Every fandom from the Marvel superheroes to Ghostbusters to Disney was represented. Here are some of our favorites.
Leia created this fantastic version of Marvel character Misty Knight.
This was Andrew’s first Comic Con and first time cosplaying. After deciding he wanted to create a costume of armor, he watched online tutorials to learn how to create this incredible “Doom Guy” outfit.
The two costumes on the left came to life with the help of 3D printing. Sarah and Dhemerae, aka The Laser Girls, designed and 3D printed their swords and armor out of plastic (complete with embedded LEDs), and their necklaces out of silver. On the right, Scott made his staff out of newspaper, paper mâché, and crafting foam.
Paul wasn’t holding back when he created this costume of Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. (Not pictured: the severed heads of the TMNT.)
This awesome Aladdin costume was made by Dane.
Even Popular Science editors got in on the fun at New York Comic Con! Editor Sarah Fecht (left) shows off her outstanding “Yuma” from the comic book series Saga. Sarah’s friend Tam (right) sewed this adorable hoodie of Güs from the same series.
Marvel’s Loki really came to life with this costume, created by Steve
