Now three days into the grandest comics stage of them all, 2014 Comic Con New York City attendees haven't only had the opportunity to enjoy the plethora of their favorite products and characters, but also don costumes and artwork that go along with the Javits Center event.

From across the globe, many different walks of life have been traveling to the Big Apple since 1996 in lieu of the massive venue, which houses the second largest Comic Con crowd behind that of the one in San Diego.

The annual convention serves as a platform for comics, graphic novels, toys, television and films. Every year, several fans flock to the event to escape their everyday lives in order to dress up like their favorite characters.

From Breaking Bad's Walter White to Mortal Kombat's Scorpion to the Power Rangers, most of the nearly 140,000-plus attendees put forth their best efforts to bring their fictional heroes to life.

In celebration of the ninth annual New York City Comic Con, here are some of the costumes and photos from Saturday, Oct. 11.
