We Found Them: The Worst Cosplay Costumes Ever Assembled

Get Started

We could be heroes just for one day.

Cosplay is when someone dresses up as a character -- usually a superhero or comic book character -- from a work of fiction. Lots of people do this for Halloween, but serious cosplayers get into character to tromp around at Comic-Con and other conventions of that ilk with fellow geeks. Some cosplayers spend exorbitant amounts of cash to replicate their favorite characters' look. More often than not, the attempts of the others are half-assed, either due to budget constraints, lack of seriousness, a misunderstanding of the assignment, or some combination of all of the above. Some of the people in this gallery are clearly just having fun with it all and are not trying to fool you into thinking that they are really a superhero or whoever. Others, however, probably thought their cosplay was on point. Either way, it's hilarious.

Some cosplay fails we found include the Flash, Wonder Woman, Batman, Captain America, Wolverine, Darth Vader, the Simpsons, Iron Man, Jabba the Hut, Thor, TRON, Daenerys Targaryen, Chewbacca, Leeloo, R2-D2, Spider-Man, Superman and many more. Do you think the following cosplayers nailed it, or should they be banned from Comic-Con until they get it right? You be the judge. Get Started
