KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The final day of Kansas City Comic-Con brought a big crowd to Bartle Hall. Organizers said more than 10,000 people attended the event this year.
Many attendees spent days, or even weeks making their costumes.

"For the mask itself, we first took a mold of his face and then sculpted it. That entire process took three or four days total. Then the painting and all the hair work took another several days," said Matt Carra.

Daniel Wise painted on a different outfit every day for the full three days of the event. On Sunday, Wise dressed as the Hulk.

"There is nothing better than seeing kids when you make their characters come to life, because they really believe you are who you say you are. And that's a big thing," said Wise.

For the thousands of people who traveled to Kansas City Comic-Con, they said the experience was worth the time and money. Many have attended the convention in the past, and plan to return in the future.
