Thousands of cosplay fans dressed as their favourite characters to head to Comic Con in London this weekend. 

Dressed as superheroes, villains and more, they headed to the ExCeL London convention centre in Docklands, east London, for the final day of MCM Comic Con 2018 on Sunday.

Taking inspiration from movies, television, comics, gaming and anime, fans donned skintight suits, brightly-coloured wigs and even wings to transform themselves.

One fan dressed as Deadpool but wore the Infinity Gauntlet featured in the latest Avengers movie on his hand while a woman dressed as a character who will play a role in the next installment: Captain Marvel.

Others were seen in fairy and butterfly costume while one fan came as Bumblebee from the Transformers franchise.

This year’s Comic Con featured a number of special guests from the world of TV and film, including Letitia Wright who gave a scene-stealing performance as T’Challa’s tech-savvy sister Shuri in Black Panther. 

Other special guests included Rosario Dawson, who plays Claire Temple in Netflix’s The Defenders and James Purefoy from Altered Carbon.
