Hay, I went to NYCC and.....suprise--got drunk and took a bunch of crazy pics! BET YOU DIDN'T EXPECT THAT. It was a lot of fun actually, I like NYCC better than SDCC in many ways. Anywhoots, here they are!
I fuckin' love these guys! This is REAL cosplay. Not doing it for attention. Not doing it to look "hawt." Doing it, because they love these characters! This is what cosplay is really about. Also, I really want to see their kids!
Flapper Wonder Woman? Not sure what this was, but it was a cool costume.
If you haven't drunk a bunch of beer and walked around a comic convention, you haven't lived!
Black Tom Baker! I never see black Doctor Who cosplay. Well, the new shitty stuff, but not the classics. Epic!
Speaking of the epic...my double chin is coming in nicely!
There's something about this group that really wowed me. The costumes, the colors, the character choices, love it!
This sums up the state of nerdery quite nicely
I love rummaging through bins of busted toys. Especially when there are nekkid dolls! Whoowee, naked dolls!
Whoo-weee, nakkid dolls!
There's something about an overly buff Spiderman in a cheap costume that cracks me up.
Nerd love is the purest love of all. Nobody has a big ego to get in the way of their love for each other. I love nerd love.
Zombie Constable Cheeseburger!
I found a friend!
I may have had too much beer that night...
My con buddy this year was the Beast Rabban from Dune. He looks sooooo happy!
Based on this toy, it's hard to believe he's a vicious villain in the movie.
After drinking this, I had the same look on my face!
Whoever drew this panel is a genius.
If you ever go to a hotel, I suggest drawing a penis on the first page of the bible in the dresser. It'll be funny for the next person who reads it. And they'll never know it was you! (unless you foolishly blog about it)
I like when big corporations hire someone who doesn't know a goddamned thing about comics to come up with a comic book character. I mean, look at this guy?! How are you going to run around with a giant camera like that and not give yourself a black eye? Also, "SPEEEEED!!" isn't a sound effect!
I admire anyone who will dress up like the witches from Hocus Pocus.
I also admire this! A whole window of butts! Only in New York!
And while I'm admiring things, I admire a guy who'll dress up as Zartana! !looc os si tahT
I think this Charlie Brown was trying to draw the few hairs on the back of Charlie's head, but that looks like a vaginer. Good grief!
Madam Fatal! America's first cross-dressing crime fighter! I did not know this, but I asked the guy who he was and he gave me the scoop. A 1940's character published in "Crack Comics" that donned women's clothing and beat up crooks. I love everything about this! I asked him if anyone recognized him and he said no. I'll be on the lookout for more Madam Fatal cosplayers in the future!
George R.R. Martin! Looking great! A little thin, perhaps.
Random photo I took outside the con. I really like the color and crazy angles of everything.
The Shogun of Harlem! Sho 'Nuff!
The Constrictor from the Serpent Society! Fuck, yeah! One, I love Serpent Society, the name, theme, costumes and general snakery, and two, it's a rare cosplay choice! Almost Madam Fatal rare! Great job on the electric whip thingy, too!
I love that she's blocking the don't stop in the walkway sign. I also love the "please kill me" look on the dog's face. Ha!
Violet, you're turning violet! I was stoked when I saw this guy, he was stoked when he saw that I knew who he was. A real New York Comic Con moment!
Two of my favorite villains!
I have to give this girl credit, a roller derby Bowser costume is very clever!
Never thought I'd post a Star Wars character again, but Boba Fetish won me over.
I'll always post Zardoz cosplay pics! His expression is perfect!
Fuck, yah! Look at these two!
And these two!
Exactly how young is too young for Harly Quinn cosplay?
Girl Penguins are really cool. For some reason, that costume looks really neat on women.
Speaking of neat...a whole family of high-end Spider-Man cosplayers. With a smoke machine!
Another rare, but great cosplay choice--Solomon Grundy! I think I kinda scared this guy because I was so excited about his costume.
The painting from Ghostbusters 2! He had the facial expression down. Genius!
What the world needs now, is way more Twilight Zone cosplay.
Gender-flipped Two Face! Nicely done.
These dudes spent a lot of money on this cosplay. Top quality. How do you get stuff that shiny?
Planet of the Apes Dorothy! She's been on this blog before as Planet of the Apes Frodo with Planet of the Apes Gandalf. Damn, this is sexy!
I don't know what's happening here. Mutant Brony gone wrong?
This fucking Juggernaut! Hahahaha! Perfect!
The Wrecker! Complete with his legendary enchanted Wrecking Bar!
War Chief from The Warriors! I've seen a lot of guys in random Warriors' vests, but not the actual War Chief. Nice work!
Little Monsters starring Fred Savage and Howie Mandell. Man, this movie sucks. But I admire this cosplay.
Spot on Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
Gorilla Grodd and Captain Cold! I think I took this Grodd's pic last year. That is one hell of a costume.
It's really hard to do Ghost Rider's hair without setting yourself on fire. Not bad!
By this point, I was so drunk I was just wondering around asking everyone to pose with my con buddy.
Chair guy head from the Tick!
Anyway, people at cons are very happy to pose with wacky action figures. No one's ever said no, not even the queen!
Almost done here, btw! This X-Men group really had their shit together!
This Silver Surfer does not look safe for microwaves!
And that is NYCC!
See ya, next year!
