With the 2014 edition of Comic-Con International underway in San Diego, cosplayers from around the world are out in full force at the annual homage to all things pop culture.

From blockbuster movie franchises to video games and comic books, no reference is too obscure for these fans, whose costumes can vary from faithful re-creations of major and minor characters to personalized interpretations that add a unique flair.

FULL COVERAGE: Comic-Con 2014

Hermione Granger from “Harry Potter”? Check. Mojo Jojo? Yes. Kurenai and Asuma from “Naruto”? But of course. One of the Knights Who Say ‘Ni’? Ni!

Not to be outdone by the fans, Hollywood has of course brought big names to the con, including first-timer Benedict Cumberbatch charming his fans, George R.R. Martin explaining how he is the first comic book fan, and even surprise appearances by “Interstellar’s” Matthew McConaughey and Christopher Nolan.

For the comic book faithful, events so far have included panels commemorating Batman’s 75 years with the creative greats behind the Dark Knight’s various stories and exploring the ever-expanding Spider-Verse.

Click through the gallery above to get a glimpse of the cosplayers at this year’s Comic-Con, and make sure to check back with HeroComplex for more Comic-Con news out of San Diego.
