No convention is complete without cosplay, and LA Comic-Con was in no short supply, bringing in countless numbers of creative costumes, concepts, and one of a kind creations. From Star Wars to John Carpenter’s Halloween, to Deadpool, there was something for just about everyone. Marvel and DC dominated the con, with numerous variations of Spider-Man, characters from X-Men, and the DCU.
Yet, there were some other touching nods, such as this wonderful couples’ cosplay from The Greatest Showman. Each moment brought forth another surprise appearance, bringing everyone together in collective fun and excitement.
For saddened fans of Toys R Us, a little joy was also brought onto the faces within the convention halls, as Geoffrey the Giraffe was seen looking for toys, photo ops, and cheers from the crowd. Though the store may be dark and shuttered, its clear that the legacy of Toys R Us lives on in our hearts and minds, earning a permanent place in modern pop culture.
It all came together with an epic display of costuming, through the convention’s annual cosplay championships. The handful of lucky contestants strut their handmade creations for the entire hall to see. Victors were chosen in three categories. Leading the way was a flawless version of Elsa from Frozen, taking home the grand prize of $8,000. It was a night full fantastic moments, worthy of a joyful tear or two.
