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

Not long ago, Dallas was graced with the fascinating costumed-innovations of the fans of Comic Con. Thanks to an adorable partnership between Master Chief and the Sand People of Star Wars, it was nearly impossible to imagine an event to top such fantastic work.

Well, kudos Dallas. This year's A-Kon, which always, always showcases great works of fandom, displayed some greatness in the likeness of Deadpool assassinating Loki, a gold-painted Lady C-3PO, and -- of course -- The Avengers.

Head over to the slide show to see the full round of shots from Catherine Downes, who may or may not have captured a Furry sex act, and check out our ten favorites below.

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.
