Costumes on parade at Comic-Con 2013

One of the premier multi-day costuming events of the year, San Diego Comic-Con brought its A-game with outfits that were funny, accurate, unique, and just plain creepy.

SAN DIEGO -- Iron Man? Check. Gender-bent Han and Leia? Check. The Internet? Check.

Wait, what do you mean, "the Internet"?

It turns out, you can cosplay as just about anything. Whether you're dressed up as your favorite DJ/superhero mashup or just your favorite social networking site, the cosplaying fans at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 didn't disappoint when it came to showing off their passionate creativity for all things costumed.

Scroll through our gallery of some of the more creative, outlandish, unexpected, and -- in one instance -- out-and-out creepy costumes from the Con floor.
