She-Ra and The Sorceress photographed by KidFlash.

San Diego Comic-Con 2016 wrapped up on Sunday after an eventful four days of action-packed trailers and big casting announcements, but there was also plenty of entertainment provided by the attendees themselves, who seem to come up with funnier and more elaborate costumes each year.

Lookalikes weren’t the only ones getting in on the cosplay fun. There were also real celebrities using Comic-Con as an excuse to dress up, from Henry Cavill surprising Will Smith to Simon Pegg going incognito to Harley Quinn voice actor Tara Strong cosplaying Harley Quinn.

John Barrowman also had fun with the opportunity, donning a different outfit each day:
