The 404 at Comic-Con, Day 1: The quest for the costume

Apparently you're a weirdo if you DON'T dress up at Comic-Con, so The 404 goes looking for costume recommendations from veteran cosplay characters on the show floor.

The truest of believers spend months cutting, sewing, and taping together the perfect custom costume for Comic-Con in San Diego, and the opportunity to flex our geek cred is too tempting to resist, so The 404 hits the floor on the first day to talk with a handful of our favorite cosplayers.

Along the way, we'll poke around shops with costumes for sale and ask for recommendations on which duo would suit us best: Jay and Silent Bob? Wayne and Garth? Thor and Loki? OK, I just want to wear a blonde wig. Join us for a tour of Comic-Con!
