Comic Con cosplayers in action

Source: Emma Soteriou

MCM Comic Con London 2019 saw fans from across the country storm the Excel Exhibition Centre once again for London’s final Comic Con this year.

And, of course, a con is not a con without the incredible cosplayers around the event – from fan-favourites like Spider-Man to more obscure characters like Doctor Who companions.

The community has continued to grow over recent years, meaning even more creations from across pop culture. In fact, there are so many to enjoy, you could almost have a game of Cosplay Bingo – tried and tested to work very well – or in this case, a game of Top Trumps.

But who would win?
