We survived Comic-Con 2012 and in the process gave you hours upon hours of live coverage, the COOLEST announcements and over 450 photos of everything Marvel comics, movies, video games and toys! Marvel Live rocked hard, plus this year my fellow photographer Nicole Ciaramalla joined me in helping cover! Now on to all the good stuff!
We had FOUR Cosplay & Costuming events on the Marvel booth this year, and each one was a huge success.
First up on Thursday was the Avengers Vs. X-Men Cosplay Photo Op!
On Friday, we surprised the crowd and the cosplayers themselves with a small gathering on the stage who had the chance to pose with the one and only Stan Lee!
Though our biggest surprise, held on Saturday afternoon, was during the Iron Man 3 Kids Costuming event, where we had children from the ages of 2-14 pose on stage for a change to receieve a signed poster by Robert Downey Jr. With over 35 kids dressed in all types of Iron Man costumes, Robert Downey Jr himself appeared on stage to WOW pretty much everyone.
Finally, Saturday evening, we held our annual SDCC Costume Contest, and this year it was sponsored by ®KÀ™ by Cirque du Soleil®! They awarded the Grand Prize winner an amazing package including a two Nights stay in a Grand King Room at the MGM Grand, Dinner for 2 at any MGM owned restaurant, two VIP Tickets to KÀ and a KÀ Giftbag!
First place with the hydrolic powered Iron Man costumer, with 2nd to Storm, 3rd to the Gender-Swapped Avengers group and 4th to Iron Fist!
Plus, throughout the weekend, we saw some amazing costumes at the booth and at gatherings all over the convention center!
And, have some more photos shots throughout the weekend!
I want to give a big thanks to my Marvel SDCC Crew! I love you guys!
Thanks to all the cosplayers and costumers who stopped by the booth for our events or even to just say hi! I love meeting and seeing each one of you!
