One of the great things about Comic-Con in San Diego is that fans like to dress up as their favorite characters from comics, movies and TV. But really, “like” doesn’t exactly cover it. They really, really, really like to dress up and its one of the things that makes Comic-Con attendees special: they take their fandom seriously.
What better way, then, to honor these hard core fanboys and girls than with a contest where they can win all sorts of cool prizes? Fortunately, that’s just what the folks at Marvel are doing next week in San Diego. Sure, there’s the “official” costume extravaganza at Comic-Con, but that one doesn’t feature a grand prize personally autographed by Stan Lee.
Here’s all the info from Marvel’s own virtual lips:
