New York Comic Con 2011 – Cosplay, Color and Con Craziness!
I don’t think it’s possible to describe how amazing New York Comic Con was this year. Four days of non-stop panels, pictures and people! I had the pleasure of meeting some of my favorite people from the geek world like Felicia Day, Rebecca Guay, Robert Kirkman and the legendary Stan Lee. I watched as my friends at Dystopia Rising launched their tabletop book to amazing success. And I hit more panels and did more blog posts than I thought humanly possible. But mostly, I took tons of photos.
If I said it’d be impossible to take shots of everyone, that’s the truth. Every second person is in costume. I could have spent the entire convention JUST taking photos and still not gotten everyone. However, I did manage to hit up the NYCC Cosplay Gathering on Saturday afternoon, which was brilliant. Some of the best costumed folk got together in the lower lobby to pose together and look amazing! The rest of the time it was just hunting down people and blocking traffic in the crowded hallways, trying to get a good photo. But these guys got together, posed, and made life for photographers so much easier.
Enclosed in this post are some of my favorite shots of the convention. There were a lot more taken and I may do a separate post just for the Cosplay gathering because, well, they were phenomenal. But in the meantime, enjoy these!
Some of my photos are also going to be featured in a Tor.com post but the bulk of photos are here. Next year, more time for photos maybe? I’ll try. Until next time!
