SDCC was a blast this year! I saw some of the new stuff that Hasbro is bringing out this year, took in Hall H panels on Doctor Who and The Hunger Games, presented a paper on superheroes and disabilities, and- of course- saw a lot of great cosplay.
I did not cosplay, but I did dress up for my panel and was told that my Dr. Spencer Reid (from Criminal Minds) was great.
Accidental cosplay doesn’t count, so here are a few of my favorite intentional costumes.
