PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- Pop culture is being celebrated all weekend long at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Center City.

It’s called cosplay, it’s a thing at comic cons, where attendees dress like their favorite characters from comics, television and film.

Dana Jordan came as Spider-Gwen, from Spider-man. She was alongside her brother Chris, who was in an original costume, “Captain Gold Hand.”

"Depending of what your level of nerd is you can spend the day just buying comic books or getting little knick knacks for yourself, seeing celebrities,” Jordan said.

Reporter: “Level of nerd? What level are you guys?”

“I think we are pretty far up the Richter scale at this point,” she said.

“I broke the scale,” Chris said laughing.

There are hundreds of vendors and plenty to see, along with meet and greets with celebrates, but photo ops cost extra.
