July 23, 2019 08:19 IST

San Diego Comic-Con just got over and the cosplay (wearing costumes, for those who don't know) was bigger and better than ever. 

Thousands in attendance went all out to demonstrate their dedication to their various fandoms, with guests cosplaying as their favourite characters from Marvel comics, Game of Thrones, anime and beyond in intricately-designed costumes.

Take a look to see the best and most creative costumes at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, which ran between July 18 and July 22.
