At most conventions you're lucky to see 2 or 3 punny mashup costumes, but Dragon Con? Dragon Con goes all out. Every year I keep an eye out for these groan-inducing beauties, so here's the best of what I've found (so far!) this year:
Give it a minute.
She also had a wand; you can see her waving it about menacingly in our Sunday video.

Mister Steve Rogers
I wasn't sure until the puppet came out, then I was all, "YAAAASSS!" And please note he has Thor's hammer, which he told us he was just holding on to until "that nice young man" could come and reclaim it.
These two were at our first FOE meetup at Dragon Con, btw - more proof that Epbot readers are THE coolest. (Plus Wonder Woman is the Elizabeth who sent me Gand-ALF's photo!)
Wonder Bread Woman:
I honestly love this design; most puns are just funny, but this one is pretty, too!
Immortan Joe DiMaggio
He told us we were the first people to get it. C'mon, geeks, put those pun-glasses on!

That giant Eggo shield is everything.
That bow! :D :D :D
"Vegan" from Walking Dead:
I know I just posted this in my Bunny Hutch roundup, but I didn't realize it was a pun at the time! Ha! The barbed wire carrot is perfection.
Ooh la la.

I don't know Game of Thrones well enough to say if T'Challa there is a pun, too - he could just be a Black Panther GoT mashup. Anyone know for sure?
There's a vehicle in Halo called a Gremlin. 'Nuff said.
I actually spotted TWO Taco Belles this year; the other one had a giant taco hat.
And finally, this last one gets an honorable mention, since I'm not sure if they were really going for a pun:
You know, instead of Hellgirl? And she's with... Ariel Sapien? OK, Ariel's definitely not a pun - but still a fun mashup!
So tell me, Dragon Con peeps, who did I miss? If you have a photo of a pun costume from this year's Dragon Con, link to it in the comments so I can add it in! And if you'd like to see all my finds from last year, check out my 20 Punniest Costumes of Dragon Con 2017 - most of them are completely different puns. :)
