Ten Weird Costumes from Con and Beyond

Having attended cons myself for the past five years, I’m no stranger to the bizarre, disturbing, or downright awful costumes that somehow manage to ooze into the convention space. From the amazing costumes of the 501st Legion of Star Wars Cosplayers, to the ever prevalent ‘Thrifty Misty’ that appear in droves. Here are 10 hilariously disturbing costumes that make me realize that there is no safe place on Earth from the disconcerting, convention space or otherwise.

The recognizability of this costume is clearly hanging by a thread.

I’m somehow more concerned that they are still wearing shoes rather than the awkward interaction. “Don’t ask questions, dear.”

In a dark and twisted dystopian future, Pikachu steals Megaman’s boots, paints them yellow, and attends every rave until the end of time. Gotta catch ‘em all.
