San Diego Comic-Con 2017 may be over, but thanks to our comprehensive cosplay video below, the Con's best costumers will live forever! Long may the winners of our completely bizarre and random Paper Plate Awards reign.

That's right, folks, here at SYFY WIRE, we're still bringing you highlights from Geek Christmas in July. Cause when you shoot as much footage as we did at the Con, uncovering gems could very well lead to Geek Christmas in December (commonly known as just Christmas). Honestly though, the more we dig, the more we find, as this may be our best vid yet.

As you can see below, we walked far and wide around the convention floor and greater San Diego to find SDCC's best cosplayers. After getting the full scoop on who they're dressed as and how they pulled such a vision together, we handed out our coveted Paper Plate Awards, tailor-made for each deserving winner. For example, the dog above, whose real name is Leia, was awarded our Best Buns plate, for obvious reasons. And she's not even the cutest cosplayer of the bunch.

But worry not, we don't stop at cute. There's plenty of scary, intricate, obscure, sexy, and just plain strange costumes to gawk at as well. It's a great way to feel the vibe of the Con and experience one of its most unique aspects, without having to get all the smells, heat, and lines a normal Con-goer might experience. So check it out, and let us know which Paper Plate Award winner you think is most deserving.
