Pictures: Comic Con Costumes - where nerds truly come into their own


In need of some inspiration for your Halloween costume. Check out this gallery on Flavorwire of the most incredible costumes from New York's Comic Con, a sci-fi, comic book and fantasy convention based in midtown Manhattan.

Doug Levy explains: "The amount of time and effort spent on outfits varied greatly, but there were many that stood out — whether it was for attention to detail, commitment to character, or just representing that perfect pop-cultural touchstone that we all wish we had thought of first. The best of the best earned themselves a place in our exclusive NYCC 2012 photo gallery."
