Comic-Con is definitely the fashion week of the Halloween costume industry. Classic styles collide with new trends in a chaotic clustrer of costumey goodness. Here are some cosplay highlights from this year's con!

Undercover Celebrities at Comic-Con
It must be pretty hard being a celebrity at Comic-Con. They can't enjoy the sights, sounds, and madness of the convention floor without being mobbed by fans. Or can they? Here are a few of our favorite celebrities who donned a costume in order to walk the floor unbeknown to everyone else... at least those not following their social media accounts.
Daniel Radcliffe "concealed" as Spider-Man, pulled from his Google+ Account
Peter Jackson undercover as a jester, pulled from his Facebook page
Another undercover Spidey! This time it was Maisie Williams, pulled from her Instagram
Annual SDCC Costume Masquerade
The pinnacle costume event of the week comes Saturday night with the annual costume masquerade. Children and Adults can particpate in different categories ranging from original design to recreations. Participants are not allowed to wear their creations at the Con earlier in the week so that the reveal on Saturday night remains untarnished. Frozen and Game of Thrones were the two more popular themes for the night, but the creativity was present throughout the whole evening!

Westoros Side Story- A musical parody of Game of Thrones
What can really be better than seeing Game of Thrones characters in a West Side Story tribute? Ah, that's right- seeing a cosplayer portray author George RR Martin as he kills each character on stage with a flick of his feather pen. Maybe cosplay really is like Games of Thrones- the only real winner is George RR Martin.
