Thousands of fanboys and girls head to WonderCon each year for an insider's look at superhero flicks, comic book characters and sci-fi shows, but only the most dedicated get decked out in cosplay gear and homemade armor.
Wired has pictures of a dozen attendees who came in costume. Having attended such conventions myself, I suspect that for each featured character, there were dozens who didn’t make the cut. http://www.wired.com/culture/lifestyle/multimedia/2008/02/gallery_wondercon?slide=1&slideView=8
