Every year, folks from around the world don their finest television, movie, comic book & video game-based cosplay costumes, and convene in San Diego, California for Comic-Con International.

The convention, first held in 1970, was initially founded as a comic book convention, but has since grown to emcompass all elements of pop culture, fantasy, and science fiction. In recent years, it has drawn in excess of 100,000 participants.
