Twice a year, comicbook, gaming and TV enthusiasts pull out all the stops for Comic Con.

We went to MCM Comic Con in October to see what all the fuss was about and it’s safe to say we weren’t disappointed. People spend months designing and making their costumes, with many almost identical to their fantasy counterparts.

Cosplay is a popular hobby where people step out of their everyday character and take on the persona of a specific one from a game, comicbook, TV show, or any other part of pop culture for that matter.

Game of Thrones is a popular choice due to the iconic medieval and rustic robes coupled with the dragons.

UNILAD's presenter, comedian, and Spider-Man balloon enthusiast, Joel, had the pleasure of meeting a woman dressed as Daenerys Targaryen, appropriately adorned with a huge, intricately designed dragon.
