·3 min read

On Friday, the second day of 2022's San Diego International Comic-Con the sun was shining on the hordes of cosplayers who showed up in style at the biggest pop culture con in the U.S. The unofficial mantra of those who dress up for the event is "go big" and they certainly lived up to the brief. For a second day, the cosplay variety was top notch with some stunning creativity and dedication to authenticity. The makeup alone, people!

SYFY WIRE celebrates fandom with our roundup of some of the best looks from Friday at SDCC 2022:

Harry?! Gotta love the incredible makeup job for alien Harry Vanderspeigle (Alan Tudyk) from SYFY's Resident Alien series. We hope they dropped some very awkward jokes on one another and maybe traded their favorite episodes of Law & Order...chung, chung.

You may have seen Netflix is adapting Neil Gaiman's beloved The Sandman comics into a series. The Saturday panel brought out the whole cast, and we hope this guy giving Sandman, aka Dream, got a great seat.

There's never a shortage of random thrones to sit on at SDCC. HBO likes to bring one every year for Game of Thrones, with House of the Dragon showing up this year. We bow to their thoughtfulness.
