If you ventured into downtown Seattle over the weekend, chances are you saw some unusual things. Maybe you waited to cross the street next to a group of Umbrella Corporation operatives from Resident Evil, or caught a cab with Elsa from Frozen. Either way it was a sure sign that the annual Emerald City Comicon was back in town.
The annual event drew thousands from across the Pacific Northwest to the Washington State Convention Center for three days of comics, cosplay, and beyond. Of course the highlight for many are the insanely creative and detailed costumes that can be seen throughout the weekend. Take a look at our photo gallery for some of our favorites along with other scenes of craziness from the weekend.
