San Diego Comic Con 2013 by Fritz Harmon Photography

For the past few years I have had the opportunity to be a staff photographer for the San Diego Comic Con.  It’s always a great experience and I come home with some fun images.

All the effort that the fans put into their costumes is one of the things I look forward to most of all. Here are a few of my favorites from the 2013 show.

zombie bride

How appropriate…a zombie bride.  Luckily none of my clients look like this. Haha.

will chase for free

More zombie action.

wonder woman

A great Wonder Woman costume.

mermaid man

Those of you with kids or just spongebob fans will recognize Mermaid Man. Somebody was walking by as I was taking the picture and they yelled “Hey where’s Barnacle Boy?”  He answered, “He couldn’t get a ticket to the Con.”


A plethora of princesses.


Hey kids…stay in school and  Supergirl says smoking is bad for your you.

These two are great.  I have seen them the last few years in a row.  The Comic Con Mariachis.

coors light warrior

Coors light warrior.  I like the details in this one like the genuine six pack abs and the “chainmail” can tab gauntlets.


I don’t know who these two are but I like it.


I think this one is pretty self explanatory.  Yes they were singing and dancing.
