Dallas Comic Con Fan Days took place over Valentine's Day weekend (Feb. 13-14) at the Irving Convention Center. As usual, the place was packed with people dressed up as their favorite pop culture characters. With every step you might bump into Rey (from Star Wars: The Force Awakens), the Doctor (Doctor Who), Captain America (from ... Captain America) or others.

A lot happened. WWE wrestler Stardust confronted Arrow star Stephen Amell during the latter's panel, which ended with a lot of water being splashed in Amell's face. I personally moderated Q&As on stage with Arrow star David Ramsey, The Flash star Robbie Amell and Power Rangers star Austin St. John. Torchwood star John Barrowman sang a song.

It was a busy weekend.

One of the highlights of the show is the costume contest, where some of the best cosplayers at the show strut their stuff in from of a crowd.

Dallas Morning News photographer Ron Baselice was at the contest (and other areas of the show) getting photos of great costumes. Here are the best:

Three versions of the Joker portrayed by, from left, Alexander Thomas, Matthew James Edwards and professional cosplayer John "Corpus Christi Joker " Pantoja. Pantoja won the Best Original award.
