Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Remember back when they called our generation lazy and unimaginative? Well, whatever awesome parent dressed their daughter as David Bowie from Labyrinth for Comic-Con Fan Days just proved all of them haters wrong!

Over the weekend thousands piled into the Irving Convention Center for a little facetime with sci-fi, magical world celebrity super heroes. And man, those visiting guest must have felt underdressed because our fanboys and fangirls flipped the costuming to warp speed.

We sent photographer Ed Steele to find the very best outfits and boy did he deliver. Picking our ten favorites was no easy task, so see the entire photo roll on our Observer Slideshow.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
