Cosplay has become a very important part of fandom. Passionate, talented fans express themselves by creating detailed costumes, dressing up as their icons, and walking around embodying their heroes. It's actually pretty cool that mainstream culture has accepted nerdiness and that cosplay can be appreciated by everyone.

That said, even the best cosplay doesn't always end up with the best showcase. Sure, San Diego Comic-Con is a playground for everything from your standard Avenger cosplay to obscure DC character to an anime that one guy really liked. But even at Comic-Con, bringing fantastical characters into the real world can often underline just how absurd those characters really are. Seeing superheroes waiting in a bathroom, using public transportation, or just generally being awkward is an unexpected benefit of cosplay.

This list collects photos of situations just like those.These are pictures of good cosplayers in not-so-good positions, as well as decent cosplayers captured in moments that make their outfits even more ridiculous. Sometimes there's just one thing amiss in these photos, but they all end up being embarrassing. These are cosplayers caught in compromising positions. Vote up your favorites!
