Cosplay may be the most noticeable part of the Comic-Con scene in San Diego and has always been a part of genre convention culture around the world. Photographer K.C. Alfred of the San Diego Union-Tribune looks to capture images of the people (and animals) who go all out in honoring and emulating pop culture figures.

From wonder women to super men, here’s a spotlight of some of the heroes, psychopaths, pets and aliens making their way around the convention center and the local Gaslamp area.
