We present another Photo Gallery from Comic-Con International 2013, this time focusing on the Saturday night big event, the Masquerade. This year's popular show offered 37 entries with almost 100 different costumes filling the stage during the evening-long gala. Awards and prizes were given out, including the coveted "Best in Show" award to the group who put together this tribute (above) to the fan-favorite movie Galaxy Quest, which was worn by Jen King, Mike King, Carolyn Lozano, Francesca Kraemer, Doug Fortney, Peter Burt, Mike Hale, Nicole Hale, Veronica Golenia, Cheryl Hagar and Reyes Arce, and designed and made by Jen King, Gilbert Lozano, Carolyn Lozano, Francesca Kraemer, Doug Fortney and Cody Dupree, with help from our friends.

Comic-Con's yearly Masquerade (2013 was the 39th annual event!) features an incredible array of costumes, lovingly created by a devoted group of costumers. Each costume is presented onstage with a brief presentation, showcasing not only the beauty and craftsmanship of the costume, but also the comedy and drama skills of the presenters.

We've uploaded over 40 photos from this year's event, which capture dramatic images from onstage and also shots from the backstage photo area, which give you a better look at the craftsmanship of the costumes. Some of the costumers spend their entire year planning for the Comic-Con Masquerade. A complete list of this year's winners can be found by clicking here.
