Marvel comic book character Galactus consumes planets to survive, so clearly this Denver Comic Con cosplayer has to wear a gigantic costume remind us how puny mere mortals look by comparison.

If you plan on dressing up as the very tall Guardians of the Galaxy character Groot, it helps to have a friend around to lead you through the convention crowd.

Death

When spotting a cosplayer portraying Sandman comic book character Death, it's always a good idea to ask nicely for a photo, just in case it really is Death.

Castle

The comedy cop TV show Castle is no longer airing, but that doesn't stop this cosplayer from portraying Nathan Fillion's sleuthing mystery novelist character Richard Castle. He's wearing the bullet-proof lifejacket that Castle wore in dangerous situations with Writer instead of NYPD written on the front.

Dinosaur

Dinosaur cosplay could be found all around Denver Comic Con, most likely because of the excitement surrounding the movie Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The giant blue bear looking in from the outside is actually a 40-foot blue bear statue created by artist Lawrence Argent that permanently stands outside Colorado Convention Center year round.
