Last weekend San Diego was filled with cosplayers from all over the world for Comic-Con, an annual comics and pop culture convention, and they stood out in so many ways. So in case you didn’t get a chance to see the unique and badass cosplayers in person, here are a few of the ones we just couldn’t ignore.
The cosplay this year was everything from scary, to adorable and absolutely stunning. If you didn’t get a chance to see these costumes in person, here they are captured in photos, starting with our one and only Super Abuela! 👵🏼
Thor’s hammer has nothing on Abuela’s chancla.
But our Super Abuela wasn’t the only super hero at Comic-Con. She also ran into the badass and beautiful Mexican Wonder Woman.

Beautiful way to incorporate her culture and identity into this cosplay. ✨
As for some of the dynamic duos who strutted their way through Comic-Con, here are detectives Dick Tracy and Carmen Sandiego.
No one rocks the trench coat better than these two.
Just like with any other profession, detectives also need a break once in a while, and this is how Carmen Sandiego took her break at Comic-Con:
Ayyyyye get it Carmen! 💃🏽
Another cosplay combo you couldn’t miss was the classic and spooky Beetlejuice and Lydia Deetz.
That Beetlejuice body shimmy is on point.
Cosplay is also a bonding activity for mother and daughter, Norma Ruiz and Lissa, who arrived at Comic-Con as Ursula and Ariel from ‘The Little Mermaid.’
"But without my voice, how can I?" Had an a amazing time at #sdcc woth my mom @fairygoddesigner People was so nice, they took us a lot of pictures, it was so nice to meet new people 🐠✨💖 Until the next year #comiccon ! #ariel #arielcosplay #tlm #thelittlemermaid #comicconcosplay #cosplay #ursula #sdcc2017 #disney #disneycosplay #disneyprincess #mermaid #disneyland
Absolutely love that this is how this mom and daughter bond. Just as Norma Ruiz’s profile says, “I’m a woman who loves to design costumes and do cosplay with my daughter.” 💖
But in case Ursula wasn’t scary looking enough for you, here’s cosplayer Carlos Velarde dressed as The Joker from the 1989 ‘Batman’ movie.
The details of this costume are everything!!
And this isn’t the first time Carlos Velarde shows up to Comic Con as The Joker…
And he stays in character the whole time!
Another fictional character Velarde took on at Comic-Con this year was Baxter Stockman from ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.’
It’s so dope that he cosplayed as Baxter Stockman, and not as one of the main ninja turtles.
But the absolute best part about Comic-Con was seeing people of all ages participating in cosplay, such as this little guy dressed as Tiny Rick from the animated series ‘Rick and Morty.’

And here’s this young girl dressed as Lisa from ‘The Simpsons,’ accompanied by her aunties, Patty and Selma.
