To San Diego, which this weekend was host to Comic Con, the pop culture extravaganza that’s always the place for a taste of upcoming must-see movies and TV shows. There were exclusive trailers for Aquaman, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Godzilla: King of the Monsters – but those weren’t the only beasts in attendance, as fans indulged in a little cosplay to liven things up further still. People putting time and effort into dressing up as things that they love: a heart-warming aspect of Comic Con, a home away from home for anyone that feels closer to Batman than their actual family.

Remember Same Difference, the creepy twins from season four of ‘The X Factor’? They’ve been mutating for a decade and now look like extra from the video for Marilyn Manson’s ‘The Nobodies’.
Comic Con: fun for all the family, if your family happens to be a gothic and ghoulish collective of black-clad grotesques.
Ever wondered what happened to Robin the Frog, Kermit’s adorable cousin who sang the 1977 weepie ‘Halfway Up The Stairs’? He grew up and is now living his best life.
