Wow. The Saturday session of NY Comic Con was surely proving to be a monster of a day with all the sights and things around me to capture for your perusal. As many already know, the Saturday of Comic Con is the biggest of the events whole run of days and as I work my way through the fourth chapter about this day I will have to say that I agree. It’s been said that sometimes the sheer crushing humanity that attends on this day surpasses the other days combined. You might scoff at that but once you walk inside the Javits Center on this day you will likely be nodding your head about it. So where were we? Oh yes, we were now at the closing chapter of the Saturday fun and there were a lot of cool cosplayers to give a moment in the bright lights so let’s begin the adventuring with this booth babe all dolled up as Poison Ivy.
Here is another Yoko, a character whose name I just happened to learn at this weekends Con. I have already admitted to my limited Anime experience so I shall not apologize again 🙂
Time to head down to the autograph alley….
As you wandered the lengthy hall to where the autographs were being done you could see some amusing banners hanging overhead. Here are a few of them.
Here was a way cool booth and it was “Propworx”. They did a lot of stuff for the Iron Man movies to name a quick one. Loved what they had on display as I enjoyed both Iron Man films greatly.
Here are uniforms from one of the Stark security officers and the Iron-ettes.
Here is the briefcase armor from “Iron Man 2”, remember this from the movie? Very cool and very much like the comic book by using this particular idea.
Here is another banner, and I would say that truer words were never spoken. I’m just agreeing that we fans are all a little bit out there when it comes down to it.
The autograph alley section was way, way, way in the back at the Con this year. I walked for what felt like ten minutes just to get here. It felt like being in an airplane hangar. As you can see there was a nice crowd over here and I wandered around this section for a few minutes. Check em out.
There was also a company that brought along some very famous cars to the convention. They wanted $20 to get close to them, but since I didn’t need to be on top of them or in the photo, I just shot from afar. This I am sure needs no introduction as its the famous Batmobile from the classic television series.
The front of Batman’s ride.
Here are two of the Batman’s most nefarious foes The Joker and the Scarecrow. Watch out Bats.
I also chanced upon what appeared to be two Darth Maul siblings.
I needed a close up of the girls.
Can I use my “Barbara Fett” line again? No you say? Well that just sucks since its my website and all. I am saying it again despite you, sorry readers.
There were Mandalorian warriors everywhere today.
Fate was on my side in getting three of them together. This was the second go at the image as some convention goers walked right in front of me as I snapped. The warrior in the center shot at them for this display of insolence.
These folks were appearing in support of a program on SciFi channel or something. I didn’t make note of the series but they were pleasant enough to let me take a photo of them. Most of the celebs at the signing tables were not permitting photos of them without you buying a professional shot.
Someone will need to fill me in on this particular cosplay. I guess “Triangle Man” makes the most sense right now.
Here’s Mark Texeira, I love his work and remember his stuff fondly from the revamped “Ghost Rider” book that came out in the 90’s. Excellent.
Another spectacular Wonder Woman.
Don’t give up now my convention adventuring friends because we still have one more day to examine and present to your hungry eyes. I do thank you for your braving the storm with me after the fact so stay tuned for “Day Four” but until that posts you can peruse some of the websites for those we featured in this posting.
