Thousands of comic book lovers, cosplayers, celebrities and lovers of pop culture assembled for Awesome Con, the premier comic and pop culture festival in Washington, D.C., June 3 to 5. The event, now in its fourth year, was held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and included more than 200 artists, 300 vendor booths and 50-plus celebrities from sci-fi, fantasy and video games. Cosplayers wear costumes to represent a character from a movie, book or video game. The costume competition is one of the highlights at Awesome Con.
