The MCM London Comic Con packed out the ExCeL Exhibition Centre this past weekend, with tonnes of guests, panels and exhibitors to get through. With attendance estimated at around 80,000 over the two and a half days, perhaps the most fun element are the fans, turning up in all manner of detailed and fun cosplay. Panels with Edgar Wright and the cast of Teen Wolf were amongst the most popular elements of the weekend, but the cosplayers always give the Con great character.

It adds a lot of color to the event, with iconic figures everywhere you turn. From Marvel heroes to anime characters, videogame villains to musical protagonists, there’s always plenty to see, and we were on hand to capture the best of the bunch on camera, with the cosplayers being naturally keen to show off their craft. The sheer scale of some of these costumes is impressive, and there are some real feats of engineering in here – moving jaws, flapping wings and articulated weaponry all add to the illusion.  Hit the jump for over 160 high-res pictures.

The event also played host to the UK qualifier for the Euro cosplay championships, with a huge array of incredible entries keeping us watching as the judges decided who would represent the UK at the competitive event. Even if cosplay isn’t your thing, it’s difficult not to get swept up in the energy and enthusiasm that these fans bring to London for the biannual event (taking place on the last full weekends of May and October). There’s still one more to go this year, and we look forward to seeing what creative endeavours October brings our way.  Finally, click here for our coverage of the Teen Wolf panel.
