Comic-Con 2011 Costume Spotting (Day 4)

Comic-Con 2011 is being held from July 21-24 this year and like last year, I’ll be costume spotting some of the best and most wacky costumes to be seen! I always get a kick at seeing what people decide to dress up as to Comic-Con. My favorite from Day 4 has got to be the candid photo of Captain America giving a a female friend a ride!

1. Wicked Queen, photo by Jim Holman. Yeah, she really is scary!

2. Jason, photo by Jeff Vaillancourt. I’d hate to be on the opposite end of that blade.

3. Batman, Robin, and Penguin, photo by Johnny Wanderlust. 60’s Batman…BOOM…POW!

4. Wolverine, photo by Ronald Woan. Visit Woan’s World. Why hello, Logan.

5. Cinderella, photo by Kendall Whitehouse. Visit On Technology and Media. Why can’t Cinderella keep that shoe on her foot!

6. Black Swan, photo by Paul Nomad. Visit Idle Hand’s Blog. I need more Black Swan and less White Swan.

8. Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art, photo by Bridgette LeVile. This is great, she looks like she stepped right out of a comic or a Lichtenstein print.

Super Heroic Minimalism

Super Heroic Minimalism is an awesome new Threadless T-Shirt by designer Jonah Block that features two of my favorite Marvel characters in minimalistic form. Both Spider-Man and Iron Man are represented in the design, but surprisingly missing from the print is the caped crusader aka the Dark Knight aka Batman. It looks like Threadless legal decided to tweak the design to exclude my favorite cowled superhero.

Take a look below to see the design that is currently available for sale as well as the original submitted design. And further down you’ll see Ant-Man modification that Block made as replacements for the original Batman design.

What do you think? Did Threadless yank Batman from Super Heroic Minimalism for legal reasons or because they felt it should have been an all Marvel ensemble?

In any case, if you like this one then I think you should grab it ASAP because Threadless legal could pull the design all together at anytime!

Super Heroic Minimalism is available now from Threadless for $18. Super power not included.

I Am Iron Man

No I’m not, but you can sort of be Iron Man. How? I never thought you’d ask! Easy. And the best part is that it does not involve metal or welding tools! Sound good so far? More importantly, you don’t have to have the disposable income of a billionaire to become Iron Man. Sold yet? Thought so. By now you want the newest shirt from NerdyShirts. The Iron Man inspired tee is the perfect wardrobe compliment for when you go and see Iron Man 2 a second, third, and for you uber comic geek types, a fifth time.

The Iron Man 2 T-Shirt is available now from NerdyShirts for the presale price of $14.95. See, I told you that you didn’t need to be a billionaire to be (at least sort of) Iron Man.
