New York Comic Con saw some fiercely spirited fans last week. Check out the convention’s meticulous cosplays below.

NYCC brings some of the most dedicated fans together every year, resulting in a plethora of the most beautiful, life-like and detail-oriented cosplay that represents fan culture at its best. This year saw some of the best Suicide Squad cosplayers– probably in the spirit of the upcoming film, some unexpected creativity and even the Jared Leto and Mark Ruffalo going incognito in their strangely quirky costumes.

Here’s The Sherp’s pick of the incredible cosplays seen in New York last week.


1. Batman v/s Superman
