Indiana Comic Con 2015 Photos, Part 3 of 4: Random Saturday Costumes


Superman’s murderer, Doomsday, still wearing his original “Death of Superman” spacesuit.

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover: my wife and I attended the second annual Indiana Comic Con despite our calamitous experience last year. Part One covered our Friday experience, a smooth and engaging experience. Part Two was our bewildering Carrie Fisher encounter.

This time around: our Saturday costume photo collection. The following subjects are a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the characters on who were in the house. Many, many thousands of attendees packed into the Indiana Convention Center, this time without inviting a fire marshal’s wrath, and an impressive number showed up dressed as their favorite heroes, villains, supporting characters, animals, antiheroes, murderers, and licensed merchandise. I’d hoped to bring back three or four times as many pics, but we’ll discuss why that didn’t happen in Part Four.


Poison Ivy!

Poison Ivy would like to talk to you about your lifestyle choices.

Wildcat + Arrow!

DC’s original Wildcat and The CW’s Arrow.

Ghost Rider!

Ghost Rider wishes he’d said no to movies and waited for Netflix to call.

5th Doctor!

Darth Vader!

Darth Vader’s master plan to capture Princess Leia involves standing in her photo-op line and biding his time. Little does he realize the Doctor and another Leia are right behind him.


Also in Carrie Fisher’s photo-op line: Ewoks! If Vader makes a move, they’re ready to defend her. They have sticks. It just might work.


Bender, clearly lost without beer and cigars.

Anna from Frozen!

Anna from Frozen. She and sister Elsa are popular costume choices at the moment.

Star-Lord and Deadpools!

Speaking of popular costumes: “Star-Lord and the Deadpools” would be an awesome band name.

To be concluded! Visit Part Four for the rest of our Saturday experience in all its victories and letdowns.

  1. Great shots! I took quite a few myself. I cosplayed as Arthur King of the Britons from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
