New York Comic Con :: Part I

Location: NYC
Space: New York Comic Con
October 2011

Following a pack of giddy girls dressed in Sailor Moon-esque costumes, we found ourselves in the thick of a twisting line out front of the Javits Center, which hosted NYCC. The great thing about the line was that it served as a sort of freaky fashion show, complete with anime and video game inspired costumes, as well as some niche costumes we were too afraid to even fathom. Inside the convention center, it was jam packed, with the rumor spreading around that nearly 100,000 people, elves, witches, vampires and God only knows what else were in attendance. The experience was overwhelming as well as entirely exciting. It was hard to wipe a grin off of our faces all day (except for when we paid $20 for vegetarian sushi for lunch). Here is Part I of our wacky day. Stay tuned for Part II!

Is that a banana in your pocket or are you about to rip my face off?

This poor dude was so hot in that costume his sweat leaked through his fur.
