Ashley Eckstein, founder of HerUniverse.com and voice of Asohka Tano on the "Star Wars: Clone Wars" cartoon, interviews Callie Nelson of Escondido, Calif., a fan who collaborated with a friend to to turn her oversized Comic-Con swag bag into a dress.
Communications professor Scott Daniel Boras of Michigan came wearing a handmade jacket comes from the 2008, 2009, and 2001 San Diego Comic-Con swag bags. While it's not uncommon to find women wearing skirts or dresses made from Comic-Con bags, a men's jacket is more rare. The 33-year-old's fashion sense impressed enough comics creators that luminaries such as Scott Snyder, Terry Moore, and Gabriel Ba signed it for him.
Costumes are time-consuming to sew, and more than 36 hours went into both the jacket for the Adam Earnhart's Mad Hatter and 10-year Comic-Con veteran Briana Roecks' Alice. Their friend Katie Forman, who also has a decade of Comic-Con under her spandex, came dressed as the DC Comics' superheroine Fire.

During a signing, Kirkman takes a brief moment to himself before meeting the next fan in line.
