Amazing cosplay is one of the most treasured aspects of the convention world, and Dragon Con attendees are known for their over-the-top outfits that are bound to turn heads. Let's take a look at a few of the best!

15. Mario And Luigi

Looks like these two souped-up Super Mario Brothers found that ultimate mushroom after all!

14. Admiral Ackbar

Deleted Star Wars scene in which Admiral Ackbar, gentleman of leisure, is all, "I don't always plan an attack on the Death Star, but when I do it's a trap!"

13. Miss Piggy As Starman

Star Piggy.

The pig's fashion — and David Bowie homage — be on fleek.

12. Fin Shepard — Sharknado

This guy gets it.

11. Power Ranger Prince

When your in memoriam game is strong.

The Purple Power Ranger has NEVER been cooler. Best Ranger transformation, hands down. Zordon would be so proud. He got the look.

10. David Bowie

Relevant large cardboard cutouts, always a safe choice. Too soon?

9. Lisa Frank-Style Benjamin Franklin

Would the real Benny Franklin have reached greater heights of genius had he a neon, space-flying dolphin Trapper Keeper? Most def.

8. Nicolas Cage

Nic Cage needs no explaination

Please note the Nicolas Cage face-swap T-shirt, which includes the infamous Cage Cat. WHYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEE?!

7. Jabba The Hutt And Oola

Biggie the Hutt.

Jabba Jabba Jabba, can't you see, your slimy rolls just hypnotize me.

6. Trump Joker

I'm sure we know who Batman isn't voting for!

"Make America Ha! Ha! Ha! Again!" Enough!

5. Dave Chappelle As Prince

Game, blouses — assemble your crew!

Pancakes and basketball, all the Dave-Chappelle-meets-the-Purple-One essentials.

4. Teletubbies Meets The Avengers

So then, who's gonna be that horrifying babyface sun?

3. Kylo Ren As Matt The Radar Technician

Remember this instant classic from SNL's Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base? Didn't you know Kylo Ren is shredded?

2. Pink Darth Vader

Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude.
Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude.

And who knew the answer to all of Darth Vader's deep-set emotional problems would be a simple, sassy wardrobe change?

1. Deadpool


"Yo girls, did you know, that umm, your boobs ... are awesome?!"

And this is why we love that cosplay lyfe! You never know what witty costumes will round the next corner — just know that you must always be camera ready!
