There was no shortage of amazing costumes from San Diego Comic-Con cosplayers this year. Yet The Verge managed to whittle the tens of thousands visiting to a mere handful of favorites. Of course, it is only natural that not everyone could pull off as convincing an outfit as these fine folks. They managed to not only create intricate and detailed costumes, but they also choose characters that fit their physical traits as well. It can't get more realistic than that.

From a busty Ursula to a Boba Fett in his sleezy going-out clothes and an adorable Jawa complete with glowing eyes, these San Diego Comic-Con cosplayers went all out for the nerdiest of conventions. Granted, this aspect of the international Comic-Con is what makes the event so highly-anticipated and extremely exciting. Stats for Realistic Cosplay Costumes Trending: Older & Mild
