PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2012: Day 2; Part 2

Continuing along with the observations at NY Comic Con 2012, I pick up where I just left off in my first installment from the Day Two portion of the massive event. I felt like keeping up with the mostly Cosplay display for awhile and also would head down to the Artist Alley for a little while. Let’s begin with this killer Nick Fury. After the shot I thanked him for his part in the recent NYC conflict.

I next glanced upon some kind of Spider-Man Ninja and while I didn’t quite understand the idea thought it was cool at the same time. This is all about being creative after all.

As I wandered down the long corridor I ran into an absolutely terrifying Carnage Cosplay. He really did a great job on the spawn of Venom that is for sure.

Cosplay of “The Avengers” was at an all time high it seemed and evidence comes with this lovely Lady Thor…..

Here’s Ben Templesmith and the “Ultrasylvania” Title. That’s a friend of his and not the person associated with the Emanuela Lupacchino.

This is Miss Destiny Blue. An artist of course.

Here’s my alien friend and Destiny Blue. I rather enjoyed the contrast of the red hair and the blue. All we needed was someone dressed as Storm with the white hair between them.

Our friend in Metal and from Marvel the one and only Nelson.

This struck me as rather strange. Doctor Strange that is. What an excellent family cosplay. That’s the good doctor, The Black Cat and Clea.

Here is Rafael Albuquerque at his table. He is the co-creator of “American Vampire”

Here is Z.M. Thomas, and he had some seriously scandal causing comic books going on. I nearly bust a gut reading some of the titles he was offering up.

Two of these three are in the Batman Family of Cosplay while the lass on the far right seems to have crossed paths with an Alien hatchling.

There was another alien wandering around. I wondered if she was related to my friend that was in a couple of photos earlier.

Once again the Willy Wonka folks were here with lots of “Nerds” related ephemera but not a single nugget of the candy. Oh the humanity. They should really take a lesson from the Hi-Chew folks and bring a boatload of it.

We’ve seen The Vamplets at Toy Fair a couple of times now and love what they are all about. Fans of the cuteness in vampirism might like one of these plushies.

Now the Asgardians appear to be joined by Kurt Cobain. Or perhaps just Thor out of costume.
