Wizard World Tulsa wrapped up its third year in the Sooner state, with a lineup including actors from current hits and past classics; comic creators from within and outside the state; wrestlers, cosplayers and more.

Annette Price visited the show on behalf of Nerdage, and shared the following report and photos:

The two biggest celebrity draws appeared to be William Shatner (Star Trek) and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier).

Comic book conventions are appealing to women more and more. A few years ago, I never had to wait in line for the ladies' room. At Tulsa, not only was there a line, props lined the walls while cosplayers touched up their hair and make-up at the sinks. Just as many vendors specialized in jewelry and purses as comic books themselves.

The most popular costume was Harley Quinn, both the Suicide Squad movie costume (Daddy's Lil Monster) and the traditional harlequin jumpsuit.

A line of famous character cars were on display too: The DeLorian from Back to the Future, stocked with props like Marty McFly's hoverboard, KITT from Knight Rider, Ecto-1 from the original Ghostbusters and the Mutt Cutts van from Dumb and Dumber. 

James Marsters ("Buffy: The Vampire Slayer") and Michael Rooker ("Guardians of the Galaxy") were also among the guests of the show.
