ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Here are a couple of amazing They Live cosplayers from this year's San Diego Comic-Con -- the shirts and bags really make the outfits.
r/movies wouldn't allow it, so here it is. My favorite cosplay from Comic-con! (imgur.com)

O_o Mind is blown. Time for more bubblegum !
ZOMG that is FANTASTIC. It immediately reminds me of Jonathan Lethem’s exegesis on They Live http://amzn.to/MzpKzM , which is probably my favorite book of film criticism EVER. Well, that and Planet of the Apes as American Myth.
Now I think I’m going to go beat someone up for fifteen or twenty minutes, after which we will become best friends.
It’s crazy, this is my friend Brian Kinney – he’s an awesome makeup artist, with an eye for the twist. He did our makeup in 2009 when we went as zombies from the movie ‘Fido’.
As well as all this attention, he just got nominated for an Emmy!
I don’t always like cosplayers, but when I do, these are them. AWESOME. With AWESOMESAUCE!
Fantastic! But can we please stop using “cosplay” to mean “anyone who happens to be wearing a costume?”
You do know “cosplay” is short for costume play, right?!
Ok, she is pretty hot… I would definitely follow the instructions on her t-shirt (especially if I did not have a pair of the glasses)
Just put that tote bad over her head. Oh heck who am I kidding, forget the bag.
disappointed cory didn’t go for the ‘corpseplayers’ pun.
Not zombies. Aliens.
Probably the best They Live costumes I have ever seen. Nice work. PS – I love that film. It is screaming for a sequel.
love it, but should of worn a kilt.
Didn’t they mostly wear suits in the movie ?
just a small reference to Roddy Piper
Brilliant, and more relevant than ever.
Also, I have to admit, ‘marry and reproduce’ is put quite persuasively.
