A Guide to Dressing Up at Comic-Con

For all of you fanboys and girls, here is a special tutorial written by Seth Green and friends.

Thinking of dressing up for Comic-Con? Do yourself and everyone else a favor: Use this handy guide to determine what might be appropriate. In ascending order of how many hours-per-week you'll need to spend in the gym to pull off. Brought to you by the Robot Chicken staff: Mike Fasolo, Douglas Goldstein, Tom Root, Matthew Senreich, Kevin Shinick, Hugh Sterbakov, Zeb Wells.

SITH LORD: All the weight-hiding benefits of a robe with the slimming power of black. A go-to if you tend to force-choke Hot Pockets more often than mouthy Admirals.

DOCTOR DOOM: Your cape gets smaller, but you still have full body coverage. If you can fit in the armor, the sculpted muscles will take care of the rest.

THE JOKER: You're not going to win any points for originality, but you're still technically wearing clothes.

SUPERMAN: We're knocking on the door to spandex territory, but there are two layers over your crotch, and there's a belt in there somewhere.

SPIDER-MAN: Now we've entered Spandex territory and are building a house there. We shouldn't have to say this, but every crack and crevice will be visible. Proceed with caution.

VAMPIRELLA: Your naughty bits are all covered, but you're still technically naked in most Southern states.

EMMA FROST: For professional models only, and even then your camel better have very small toes, if you get our drift….

PRINCE NAMOR, THE SUB-MARINER: There's a reason this guy lives in the water. The only place this outfit would be remotely acceptable is at the beach.

DR. MANHATTAN:If you've got the guts, go with God, but remember to take into account the shrinkage you'll experience when you're relentlessly tasered by convention security.
