Not only has Barbie-mania hit movie theaters with high fervor, it has also made its way to one of the biggest pop culture conventions in the world-- San Diego Comic Con.

Yes, amongst the many Across the Spider-Verse, Over the Garden Wall, and Super Mario Bros cosplays this year, there are a gaggle of people dressing up as different Barbies (and Kens).

Not only are there full-out cosplays of Barbie costumes lifted from the trailers, there also seems to be a preponderance of pink outfits inspired by Barbie. Barbie-bounding, if you will.

Even I donned a pink Barbie-inspired outfit on Wednesday to get in the spirit of things, you can peep that fit in our in-person SDCC Oppenheimer vs. Barbie poll video.

Popverse saw it and did most of it, and you can find all about our guide to All the big news, magic, and moments from San Diego Comic-Con. And if you want to go to SDCC next year, we have the San Diego Comic-Con 2024 dates as well.
