PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2011: Day 3; Part 2

Continuing along in our coverage of the NY Comic Con 2011 we are still focused on the happenings and sights that were found during the third day of the adventure. This is really the busiest of the days and if you took the preceding two days and tomorrow in terms of number it would still be less than the amount of people that come through the Javits Center on Saturday. That being said let’s get down to business….

First up is the booth for the film “Silver Circle”. They were doing a test screening for the fans that had interest but I sadly did not have time for this kind of stuff with all the other adventures to undertake. The film takes place in a world after the economy has collapsed. Sounds like some of the stuff that is going on today so I am not too eager to get there.

The Mario Brothers do not have anything on these lovely sisters. What amused me was that their own real initials were M and L just like the famous video game siblings.

Here’s the rep at the Harlequin Books table. She said that she would be in costume on the final day of the Con, and while it might have been better for her to do this today, we said we would come back and visit on Sunday to see if she was a girl of her word.

Here is the booth of RetCon and the lovely ladies that they had getting them some added attention. You will find this being the case a lot at the Con. RetCon is a convention for Gamers that is run by Gamers.

Right next to them was the Gen Manga booth and this young lady was hoping to tell you more about them. They are essentially a company that is more independent and gets the Manga right from the talented artists into your hands via the Internet.

These two stunning Cosplayers were helping to rep a work in progress movie that I think Kevin Smith is doing. I knew that one was Supergirl but the other outfit escaped me in terms of character. Needless to say the ladies were getting some wonderful attention from the convention goers. I even helped take a couple of photos of the fans who asked.

This booth showcased the book “Jaws: Memories From Martha’s Vineyard” and was all about the making of the classic suspense movie “Jaws”. The book looked awesome but struck me as more of the kind of thing best served up at the Book Expo America as opposed to Comic Con. Nice people though and we wish them the best with this massive book.

This was truly a fantastic four and while I could not resist the Marvel-ous pun you have to admire this great Alpha Flight Cosplay. That’s Aurora, Northstar, Puck and Vindicator from L to R.

This amazing Wonder Woman cosplay was up next and making quite the stir in Artist Alley. When I asked her what her name was so she could see the eventual posted image she replied “Diana”. It took me a moment but very funny Miss. Excellent work on the outfit for sure.

Here’s Danny Fingeroth. He is a long time Marvel Comics name and he was presenting his book about the mighty Stan Lee. I flipped through this tome and can say that if you are a fan of the man that you should pick one up.

Here is the Glass Eye Pix booth and they are a Horror themed company. I loved their buttons as well. They had one that said “Satan Hates You” which struck me as very Metal.
