If you happened to be near downtown Victoria over the weekend, you may have noticed an unusual number of costume-clad revelers.

From Friday to Sunday, Comicon took over the Victoria Conference Centre and Crystal Garden, giving anime, comic book, horror, fantasy, and superhero fans a space to show support for their favourite characters.

This year’s inaugural event featured celebrity panels, autograph sessions, over 100 exhibitors, photo-ops, and of course, plenty of costumed fun.

From classic Anime, to Marvel and DC, to franchises like Star Wars – you likely spotted more than a few Victorians decked out in your favourite characters.

Take a look at some of this weekend’s most memorable costumes and moments below.
