Chicks at Phoenix Comicon: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Three signs of a good comicon costume: tons of makeup, tight leather (pleather also works), and having the globes, er, guts to wear both.

Over the weekend, herds of Phoenix Comicon girls showed up to Downtown convention rooms dressed (and undressed) as super-heroines and sci-fi divas, including Poison Ivy, Supergirl, Harley Quinn, Ramona Flowers.

We showed up (not in costume) and took a few notes. The Good's above, the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump and the whole girly Comicon slideshow is right here.

Two signs of a bad comicon costume: odd tanktop arrangements and crappy, plastic props.

One sign of an ugly comicon costume: thinking six scraps of fabric and an orange wig will garner you any kind of street cred (and not the Van Buren kind) with the comic crowd.
