NYC Comic Con 2013 Cosplay – The View from Booth 2922


I love Cosplay. It’s probably the pinnacle of fandom, becoming the character you love. So whenever I go to a con, I snap as many pics as I can. This year, my first as Press, was slightly hampered by a prior obligation to Royal Collectibles, helping them out at their booth (for that tale see: ). So I couldn’t run around as much as I wanted.

I really didn’t need to. The real cosplaying fans, the ones not only dressed up to the nines, but there to shop as well, walking around with bags and rifling through long boxes, came pouring into the booth at such a steady pace it was amazing. This con, among the past few I’ve been to, reminded me why cosplay is awesome:

Because it doesn’t matter how old you are,

merrida & batgirl wolverine

batgirl and ariel little leaia

What gender or race you are,

cap girl catwoman bathroom girl heroes scarlet tranny mystique

Or even what species you happen to be:

marvel dog2 marvel dog

We are all one big family of fans!

huntress and family

Everyone has fun! And that’s what Comics are supposed to be!

So with out further ado, I present; The View from Booth 2922

About Author

Trained by the Four-Color wizard, Hagan, in all things comic-booky, young Robert took to the streets of New York, dragging his large bespectacled head from comic shop to comic shop, absorbing, learning… knowing…. Until a very delayed pubescent spurt in his early thirties when the tumescent lump of comic knowledge burst forth, rupturing into nonsensical rants about Jack Kirby, superhero related tattoos, questionable cosplay activities, worshiping Jim Starlin as a prophet, and courting the young lady working in his local comic shop. Now he is just mad…roaming the streets late at night while walking his dog, plotting and preparing to unleash more comic-booky goodness on an unsuspecting world. He likes bread. The food. He thinks the band is crap. *Hey wanna freak Bob out? Come follow him on twitter (@dyrewolf1218), he's totally new to it and suspects it may be black magic...* - Chuck the editor monkey
