Saturday’s winner in my personal cosplay sweepstakes: a dude done up as Kitty Pryde dissing the telepathic founder of the X-Men.

The ski jacket, facial expression and word balloon from the cosplay above blew me away, instantly transporting me back to seeing that iconic opening page of Uncanny X-Men #168 for the first time way back when. Weekends at fan conventions tend to be when the numbers swell, and cosplayers come out in their finest wares. Yesterday was filled was tons of great straight-ahead interpretations and clever mash-ups. Go on, take a look.
