Ok... time for a bit of fun. I love good cross-over costumes and I came up with this idea of crossing over as many pieces as I could into a single costume. This started out as an idea for a drawing (which I'm actually still working on) but after seeing the Costume Contest, I thought it'd be fun to see how much of the illustration I could do in real life with what I had in my collection, built up over the years.
So, I present to you the Ultimate Fan Costume:
In this outfit I managed to include a dozen characters spanning eight franchises.
Here is the breakdown of the build (more or less from head to toe):

Shirt: I believe this is an older Action Costumes outfit, but I'm going to end up modifying the chest symbol... watch for this build later next year.

And since this is a universe of infinite possibilities, perhaps someone, somewhere has put together the same outfit.... here is proof that it's me:
