Celebrities walk the floor of Comic-Con 2013 in awesome costumes!

Posted on August 08, 2013 by admin

Comic-Con, the ultimate geek convention, is as famous for its costumes and cosplay as it is for its amazing range of panels, merchandise and sneak previews of up-and-coming TV and film. In fact, you’re more likely to feel out of place in standard clothing than you would dressed up!

Fans and admirers spend huge amounts of time putting together incredibly complex and realistic costumes replicating their favourite characters from film, TV, computer games and literature, with some amazing results.

It’s not just the fans who enjoy the thrill of the fancy dress though – there are plenty of celebrities getting in on the action too!

Director and writer Edgar Wright, known for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, talked to Michael Cera for Wired about being a celebrity at Comic-Con: “Comic-Con is an interesting barometer of fame. I remember walking the convention floor with Nick Frost, and that made it easy to gauge your fame ratio.

“You would walk for 10 minutes, and 20 people would stop Nick and go, “Dude, Shaun of the Dead!” And then one out of those 20 would go, “Hey, you’re Edgar Wright!” Simon Pegg went around the convention floor wearing a Joker type mask.”

Simon Pegg

Ultra-geek Simon Pegg has made his career based upon his love of pop and geek culture, so the British actor would never miss a chance to walk the convention floor to check out some of his favourite shows.

But how would Pegg, now a star around the world, do so without being spotted?

Pegg tweeted this to his followers during the convention, showing exactly how to do the walk without being surrounded by fans! His costume is a dedication to his Shaun of the Dead character, right down to the “bit of red” on his white shirt. The actor and writer shared his enjoyment of the convention with his followers at the end of the event with a fun picture of himself and friend Edgar Wright:

 

Bryan Cranston

Previously of Malcolm in the Middle, Bryan Cranston has made a huge name for himself as chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-cook Walter White in the phenomenally successful Breaking Bad. Cranston was set to appear in the all-star panel with the rest of the cast to talk about the final eight episodes of the show, released in August.

The multi-award winning actor didn’t want to miss a chance to walk the floor, and came up with a hilarious disguise…

Matt Smith

If there is one celebrity who could never walk the floor undisguised, it’s Matt Smith. As the current Doctor in the BBCs internationally adored Doctor Who, Smith has been unable to leave the backstage area every year he has attended Comic-Con as far too many excited fans would surround him.

As 2013s convention would prove to be his last as the Doctor, Smith decided to take matters into his own hands and disguised himself as Bart Simpson:

Smith seems disappointed that many Doctor Who fans were unwilling to talk to him about the show – we bet they were kicking themselves after seeing this video!
