My Cosplay the San Diego Comic-Con 2014

Here it is! My cosplay reveal for Comic-Con! For this year’s theme, I took the new Warner Bros Bags- specifically these DC properties to create my cosplay!



I designed my costume after my favorite sci-fi childhood hero, the Return of the Jedi: Luke Skywalker outfit (pic at very bottom). His all black suit was simple and elegant- a perfect swag bag canvas. So here it is…A long time ago, in a Comic-Con far, far away…







CI_67831_1346466670Special thanks to my Jedi Master and friend, Michael Lew of Faces Apparel for his amazing crafting skills. This may have been my idea, but Michael’s magic is what made this project possible. Not only is he a great guy, but his organization empowers migrant clothes industry workers all throughout Asia with fair wages, healthy conditions, and skills training. Special thanks to my friend Kyle for the great pics too!

Check out last year’s Doctor Who Bag design too! Well, let me know what you think and I hope to see you this week!

  1. Nicely done man I will have to track you down again for another picture with you. I assume you will be wearing Sat?

    • The planning took a while but the designer worked his magic in just a couple of day! With a broken hand! Thanks so much!

  3. Awesome costume! I saw you as I was in line at Starbucks. Are you sweating like crazy in that outfit?? I was in a robe and Homer mask…I was soaked with sweat!

    • Oh yea, I was burning up. Check out my ‘End of the Road’ podcast where I share how bad it was. Thanks for commenting!

  4. Great idea, terrific execution! I just want to thank you for this wonderful website–all your posts are tremendously informative and your writing style manages to be both fun and warm ( the best qualities of the nerdgeek community). I have been to a number of cons over the years, but have never made it to SDCC. After reading thru your posts on getting tickets, logistics and tactics I am both inspired and intimidated–this looks harder than getting tickets to Wimbledon! I have a friend in Coronado that I’ll be visiting in Oct, so I think I’ll do a little recon and get familiar with the layout, then try for next year. SDCC seems a lot like Mardi Gras–best done with a plan (that you must be able to abandon at a moment’s notice), the endurance of a Sherpa, the patience of Job, an elephant’s bladder, comfortable shoes, an empty credit card…..and a Sharpie! And the upside is that you don’t have to pee in an alley with rats the size of raccoons. ;-))

    • Yes, it is definitely the way you described it. I hope you get a chance to attend and thanks for reading my crazy posts and commenting. Keep following for news and tips of how to get into 2015! Thanks!

    • Thank you so much! It is definitely a tough con to get into. I hope you get the chance though. Thanks so much for faithfully following and thanks for the comment!

  5. It was great seeing you and this awesome creation in person! I wish I could have taken a photo with you in my first attempt at a WBSDCC bag dress. Maybe next year. 😀

  6. Hey Tony B Kim, would you know if Michael Lew has the design patterns available? I would like to recreate the jacket from the bags I got, or maybe for the one for next year. Thanks. Awesome, very original outfit.
