  1. If cash was unlimited I would get lipo first (lol) and then build Heartseeker Ashe and Demonblade Tryndamere from the game League of Legends with myself and my partner.

  2. I went for the first time last year and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I’m still trying to decide who I’m going to dress up as this year.

  3. Oh my goodness, that is a hard question. But before I think about it, I have to say….

    DR. MCKAY!!!!! I loooove David Hewlett and I am so jealous you got to meet him!!!!

    If I had unlimited money I would totally spend it on some plastic surgery so I could get all dolled up like Leia in her gold bikini, phwoar!!!! Pretty sure my husband would totally be onboard with that too!

    I went to my first Comic-Con last year and it was amazing, I am definitely keen to go again this year and take the girls!

  4. I would have no idea what to dress up as or who other people were dressed up as so the ticket would be wasted on me! It does look like so much fun though. My claim to fame isn’t nearly as good as yours, but apparently my body pump instructor is a prize winning comic con-ner!

  5. I would dress up as a Arena season 3 warlock. from world of warcraft. And have the wings come out.

  6. Jareth the Goblin King from The Labyrinth because that mullet is spectacular and he was the sort of ‘weird’ that’s really captivating.

  7. Mystique. I think it would be liberating to be covered in blue body paint from head to toe, walking freely among random like minded strangers in near next to nothing.

  8. Darth Vader, my unlimited budget covering a fully working light saber. Be nice to live out my Dark Side fantasies for a while.

  9. Khaleesi, Mother of Dragon’s, complete with true to life, robotic Dragon that I fly in on. She’s amazing, and even though I’m taller, I seriously think I could pull this look off.

  10. Xena, me the warrior princess! Unlimited budget spending?$! to make me taller, thinner, younger, hair extensions, full major makeover, but hey a girl can dream!

  11. I would come as Optimus Prime. It’s a lot of hard work to put together but unlimited funds and assistance, it can be done!

  12. I would go as Scott Pilgrim. The costume may not sound like it needs an unlimited budget, but I would throw real coins on the ground every time I bumped into someone or something.

  13. I’d dress as Jupiter from the sailor moon show, I’d love to be super and sexy as

  14. Chewbacca, so cool, I’d be incognito with nobody knowing it was me in the suit but everyone would be cuddling me and wanting photos

  15. I would love to make a dress that incorporates all the disney princesses into one, I have seen an artist drawing of this before and I think it could be possible, especially with unlimited money

  16. I’d dress as Justin Bieber….combining my two great loves…COSPLAY and RUNNING FROM ANGRY MOBS!!!

  17. If I had a limitless budget, it would not change my decisions on who/what I would cosplay as. I only cosplay characters that I could relate to and have meaning to me. It is the heart of the cosplay that matters not how you piece together your cosplay.

    To answer your question, it perhaps would be Chi from Chobits. Her child-like innocence makes her a lovable character.

  18. Jabba The Hut – I would definitely need an unlimited budget, coz that padded brown leatherette ain’t cheap!!

  19. tankgirl.. comic version with tank shooting beer cans. I found tankgirl when I was 18 and i still love her at 40

  20. I would dress as Wolverine with the pop out claws to scare the crap out of everyone

  21. I would be BumbleBee, Hubby will be Optimus Prime, and my lovely kids are Jazz and Ironhide. Us dressed up to the nines, this years Comicon will be a wild ride!

  22. Freddie Kruger of ‘Claws’ – love to be a “Scare’otypical character at Cosplay!

  23. As a large gentleman, I’d find it funny to dress as The Borg Queen only to walk around and shout “Dismantle Him” at randoms.

  24. I would dress up as Sailor Moon as she has always been my favourite character ever since I was young

  25. Fab prize. I’m still addicted to Final Fantasy XI, I’d invest my unlimited budget in a set of Valour armour, loved the blue and tanking was and is the best job. With an Excalibur sword on my back I’d be set for some fun and excitement.

  26. Brisbane Oz comic con unlimited budget I’d dress as Red Queen
    She’s the best cosplay reenactment I’ve seen
    Red fiery personality and hair
    She’s awesome in her reign and without care

  27. Jean Grey from the original X-men. As she’s a recurrent host of the Phoenix Host, the costume won’t be complete without fire wings, so they’ll need to be tattered with a soldering iron on a low setting to give a blaze-like/fire effect! Love to win this prize – have always enjoyed Comic-Con! Thanks!

  28. I’d dress up as Rapunzel because all that hair isn’t going to pay for itself!

  29. I would dress up as “Dorothy the Dinosaur” because I want to revive my youth.

  30. Harley Quinn for sure! It would be so fun to be her for a day 🙂

  31. I’d definitely go all out and build my own wearable Veronica (HulkBuster Armour) that Iron Man wears. It would have all the bells and whistles. Sydney please.

  32. I would go as Jinx from LOL. Blue hair and a shark bazooka. Can’t get any more bad@ss than that 🙂

  33. Hela from the Thor comics. She has such an amazing costume with an incredible headpiece.

  34. I’d love to go as Totoro! He’s cute and cuddly and the costume would keep me warm. 🙂

  35. I’m struggling to think up a family outfit, short of Star Wars Episode 6, Han, Leia and Miss 2 as an ewok, but it would definitely be too hot for all that fur!!! For comfort one time I’d like to be Winrey Rockbell from FullMetal Alchemist or Kaylee from firefly because mechanics 😂😂😂

  36. Every year I go to ComiCon with my 10yr old son. This year he’s Assassin’s Creed CRACKERS so we’re (meaning me) putting together his Edward get-up. From scratch. Unlimited budget would help me with Assassin’s accessories. Boots, pistol holsters, knife cases.. all that tricky stuff. Thank you!!
