San Diego Comic-Con is the largest and most iconic entertainment convention in the world, and every year it draws thousands of cosplayers and costumed superfans from all over the world to Southern California for four days of fantasy and fun. This year's con, which just wrapped up on July 24th, was definitely not short on memorable cosplay costume moments.
If you weren't too distracted by Gal Gadot sweetly comforting an emotional young fan, or Lupita Nyong'o joyfully celebrating an exclusive trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie with her castmates, you would have noticed that this Comic-Con cosplayers took their game to whole new level this time around. Seriously, some of these cosplay characters looked like they walked straight off a cinema screen.
Don't believe us? Check out the best cosplays for yourself below, with each famous character's fictional origins (if relevant) labeled alongside their name, just in case you're a little stunted on your pop culture knowledge. Don't forget to vote for the coolest costumes!
