One of the best parts of any festival like Comicpalooza is the costumes. What we mean by that is that it's one of the best parts of the festival for casual bystanders like us. Oh, we're sure the cosplay fans have fun getting dressed each morning, but as festival n00bs, we're lucky to get treated to the creativity and hints of flesh provided by costume enthusiasts. Below, we've gathered some of the hottest cosplay of this year's convention, from Slave Leia to Poison Ivy.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
