Not everyone does it, which is what makes it special.
Many guests at the Florida SuperCon at the Broward County Convention Center stuck to t-shirts, shorts, and blue jeans as they maneuvered through the racks and racks of comic book, sci-fi, fantasy, and more paraphernalia on sale at the con.
But others stalked the celebrity signings and workshops in fashions that emulated their favorite comic book, anime, movie, television, fiction characters. Some aficionados of cosplay veered toward premade costumes for the event. Others showed off their creativity, working their tailoring, prosthetics, and makeup prowess.
This is what made its way through the convention center of opening day of the con, July 12.
