Check out the insanely elaborate costumes at Comic Con — and what they cost

Every year the energy at New York Comic Con, a pop culture extravaganza held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, is astronomically high. More than 167,000 fans attended last year, up from 33,000 people when it started in 2006, according to games and media company IGN. That number was expected to be higher this year, BizBash reported.

The exhibit halls are always packed with fans, and aisles are filled with vendors selling comic books and collectables. Artists are showcasing their latest, often intricate, creations and gamers are trying the hottest products entering the market — this year, virtual reality is big.
