Costumes included Wonder Woman, Chewbacca, Buzz Lightyear and Belle from Beauty and The Beast.
Some glamorous attendees donned barely-there costumes, no doubt keeping themselves cool in the sunshine.
Many came with their friends and dressed in group costumes, including those who dressed up as the cast of The Avengers.
It was also a family-friendly event, with kids under 10 getting in for free.
As usual there were some bizarre sights that would look out of place anywhere but Comic Con, including Darth Vader pushing his toddler son in a buggy.
Comic Con attracts thousands of visitors a year and encourages fans to dress up in costume – known as cosplay – for the event.
