Comic book lovers, pop culture enthusiasts, and fanboys/girls can all agree on one thing: New York Comic Con is every cosplayer's mecca. No matter what fandom you support, we can all appreciate the pure mastery of these cosplays.

Every tried and true comic book/TV/movie/fandom lover knows Comic Cons are more than mass conventions — they're a lifestyle. Thousands of fans from all corners of the globe gather together to celebrate anything and everything nerdy, whether it's a new superhero film or a beloved comic strip character.

Perhaps the best part of these comic cons are the incredible cosplays, where people dress up as their favorite villains, pop culture icons, or even Jabba the Hutt and stay in character all Con long.

New York Comic Con 2016 featured some of the best cosplayers we've ever witnessed, and now we must pay tribute to these stunners like the obsessed fans we are. Nerds, unite!

7. The Best Vintage Catwoman Cosplay Ever

"We are not in control. Every now and then life likes to reiterate that little point. Some people find such reminders disconcerting. They spend their lives in breathless pursuit of meaningless goals, hoping to forget everything they know about their own mortality. Some people anchor themselves to something larger. Religion, Art, Justice. Anything they deem significant in a life that's not. We are not in control. If we were, surely we'd know better than to care about anything." - Catwoman #bellamalattia #ghostlikecrime #selinakyle #nycc #nycc16 #catwomancosplay #dccomics #womenofdc #girlswhocosplay #cosplay #reevzfx #vengeancedesigns
