San Diego Comic-Con International brings out the best Cosplayers in the world, showing off their ornate and unique costumes they use to bring their favorite characters to life. Cosplay has now become one of the main attractions of comic book conventions, with fans dressing up as characters from movies, comics, television shows and books. It's also fun to see how some fans will take familiar characters and give them a fresh twist. In the photo above, for example, a male fan dresses up like Harley Quinn, complete with a mallet. Some fans even create their own characters and gain social media followings.
