Cosplay at Comic-Con 2016: From Stormtroopers to Sansa Stark

One thing you can count on seeing at this year's Comic-Con in San Diego is a lot of incredibly costumed convention-goers. Here's just a sampling of what we've seen so far.

Steampunk

We're right in the middle of things at the 2016 Comic-Con International in downtown San Diego, and you can't shake a stick around here without hitting someone who is dressed in an amazing outfit. Well technically, you probably couldn't shake a stick at all considering how packed with people it is, but you get the idea.

We're starting off with this attendee rocking a sweet steampunk outfit, but be sure to look through the whole gallery to see a wide spectrum of costume types.

A very interesting trio

On the left and in the center, we have "Mad Max"-inspired original costumes. On the right, we have My Little Pony's Rainbow Dash if she were a Ghostbuster. That definitely counts as original.
