New York Comic Con 2013 Cosplay Round Up
NYCC may be finished, but our coverage continues as we bring you photo galleries and exclusive videos all week long. It’s just like being at the actual con, only without all the chafing and body odor!
Click through for some of the spectacular cosplay we spotted in between waiting in line for panels and blowing money on things
NYCC Was A Blast, But Thank God It’s Finally Over
I saw the dude above in the food court on the final day of New York Comic Con and couldn’t resist snapping a pic. He was clearly feeling exactly how most of the other con-goers felt on the last day: tired as balls. While I lugged around a backpack containing roughly 30 lbs. of electronics and camera gear in the dwindling twilight hours of NYCC, my muscles swelled, my bones ached, and sweat seeped through my clothes. This man was my Jesus on the cross. He was my spirit animal. Keep fighting the good fight, brave warrior.
We scored a buttload of great content from NYCC to share with you all, but give us some time to recuperate. See you tomorrow.
Official Dragon Ball Z Hair Wax
Yessir, this is the real deal. This Dragon Ball Z hair wax is officially licensed by Bandai Premium to hold your hair with a Super Saiyan bind. The wax is sold in three different strengths, “Natural, Hard, and Super Hard,” using carrot essence. The good news is, it’s also super affordable for US buyers. Bandai Premium is asking for 980 yen on its online shop, which is just about $10 USD.
Let’s see how many cosplayers will be using this for their hair.
Pics & Video From the New Leaf Launch at Nintendo World NY
Oh man! So me and my special lady took the 5am bus from Reading, PA to New York City this past Saturday for the Animal Crossing New Leaf launch event and holy geeze was is fun! There were games to play sweet pins to collect, and StreetPasses aplenty. They even had a tiny replica diorama of an Animal Crossing town!
Check out the swankily edited video below for a better look at what you missed if you couldn’t make it out to NY over the weekend.
The Time Lords of Wizard World Philadelphia
I’ve been going to Wizard World Philly every year for the past seven years or so and this year was by far the most that I’ve ever seen so much Doctor Who cosplay. Clearly a testament how much the show’s fanbase has grown over the years.
I’m sure their hearts were collectively shattered as Matt Smith announced over the weekend that he’d be leaving the series. I know mine sure was.
ALBOTAS GOES TO WIZARD WORLD PHILLY 2013
As someone who has been regularly attending Wizard World since 2007, I can honestly say it gets bigger year after year. With big names like Stan Lee and the cast of The Walking Dead and Firefly, this was easily the biggest year yet.
Gross, man: Wolverine Claw Piercings
Surgical needles make for some pretty cringe-worthy Weapon X cosplay.
Sexy Lady Snake Cosplay by Crystal Graziano
Obligatory joke about our snakes being totally solid or whatever. Pics by WHITEDARRYL.
Speaking of pretty girls in skimpy cosplay, did you hear that the ladies of 16 Bit Sirens are trying to raise awareness (Among other things i.e. weiners. Oh snap!) to how some cosplayers are mistreated at events?
Yes, it seems that just because a woman dresses like a whore
for attention to celebrate their fandom, or whatever other reason, it doesn’t mean that she actually is a whore! Allow the great Dave Chappelle to elaborate.
But for real, guys, if you’re groping up on chicks at cons, you’re a super creep and should be ashamed of yourselves. There’s never a good time to not act like a proper gentleman.
Adorableness at MegaCon, Part 1
While I did snag a lot of shots of adult and teenage cosplayers this weekend at MegaCon, let’s not forget about the little ones. These parents are super awesome and their kids are even cooler for enjoying it.
I still can’t get over how cute that Link was this weekend!
