That's not Aquaman's face

Is it just me, or is that really not Aquaman's face, by any stretch of the imagination?

San Diego Cosplay (finale)

I'll say I'm saving the best for last on this one. I really enjoy Mera costumes, but I don't see many of them. She's a tough cookie to pull off. The Bombshell Mera, however, is simply excellent in design and has a handful of different costumes already. So seeing this costume made me squee inside.

Harley doesn't look bad, either.

If you have any photos of Aquaman-related cosplay at San Diego, or any other convention, please let me know in the comments. Feel free to drop a link to cosplay photos or ask me for somewhere to send a photo. I'll host cosplay photos of Aquaman-related characters here on my site.

Along the same lines, if you know the names any of these cosplayers prefer to go by so I can give them credit for their work, please use the comments to let me know. If you put "don't publish" in a comment, I'll take the information but not publish the comment itself.

San Diego Cosplay (part four)

Let's take a look at a couple of more traditional versions of Aquaman, shall we? Ok, one is traditional, one it... well, shirtless. This first one is actually a screen cap from an IGN video, so go watch the video. They end it with Aquaman.

This next fellow got around the con quite a bit, and was often paired up with Wonder Woman. Look at other cosplay pages to find him in other shots.

He's also in this gallery and here.

San Diego Cosplay (part three)

Yes, I'm not quite done with female Aquaman costumes. Today we have a very Earth-11 version along with one of the more original takes on the Aquaman design I've ever seen.

The tattoos only add to the sheer awesomeness.

A flapper version of Aquaman makes perfect sense.

Many thanks to David Oakes, longtime contributor to this blog, for the photo of Aqua-Flapper, who was in a hurry to get to a volunteer shift, but stopped a moment for a photo.

As always, if you have more cosplay photos, feel free to post a comment with a link to the photos. I moderate all comments, so I will see it.

San Diego Cosplay (part two)

So, let's head back to San Diego and look at some more costumes. These next two are part of a trend that I heartily approve of: Aquawoman! Now, I'd like to see some Earth Two: Society Aquawoman cosplay, but until then, I really enjoy the various takes on Aquaman's costume. Both of these use netting to great effect with the trident.

The only thing I'm not sure about is the boots.

I quite like the sandals, and the inclusion of a themed-bag for her possessions is also useful while cosplaying.

As it happens, women dressing as Aquaman goes back a long way. Here's an instance from 1959:

Coming tomorrow: More Aquawomen!

That looks like Mera to me...

There's a Cosplay Fashion Show in Manhattan tonight, according to Bleeding Cool, and on the poster advertising it is this gal, who appears to be dressed as Mera.

Event: NERD Fashion ComicCon
Date: July 24th
Time: 7pm
Location: Lovecraft and The Set, NYC

This Friday Set NYC and Lovecraft NYC are presenting their NERD Fashion Comic Con. The event will be a gathering of all aspects of nerd culture. The event will feature a Fashion, Cosplay, special performances, screenings, and more.

If anyone goes, please let me know how it went and if Saraphina was indeed dressed as Mera.

Update: Yup, that's who she's dressed as according to her Facebook page.

Many thanks to Rei Shaw for the tip!

San Diego Cosplay (part one)

I didn't go to San Diego, but I saw a lot of excellent Aquaman cosplay in various round-ups. I've collected what I was able to find, so let's start with a slightly surprising trend... Aquaman costumes based on the single photo of Momoa's Aquaman that we've seen so far. I found three distinct costumes. To go to the original photo gallery that contains these, just click the picture.

Pity about the expression on this guy's face. He looks vaguely pop-eyed, which brings up thoughts of a completely different sea-related character.

The choice to not go shirtless was probably a good one, as very few guys can really pull it off. I do wonder if this might be a different character entirely.

This guy clearly went to a lot of effort, and he gets props for that. I'm impressed.

Have you spotted any Momoa-based Aquaman costumes from San Diego or any other conventions? If you have a photo or a link to one, please comment. Thanks!
