PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2013: Day 2 – Part 1

Alright my friends and fellow Comic Book Convention loving maniacs, it’s time to start sharing the adventures that I undertook at the 2013 NY Comic Con. Today was technically the second day of the massive event that dominates The Javits Center and since I was walking this as one of the fans this time around, I had only secured a “3 Day” Pass. Despite losing one day, I felt that we met a wonderful batch of new Cosplay friends and reconnected with a few handfuls of professionals that are always welcome sights at the Con. In order to keep your focus, I’ll be parsing out each post to fifty images apiece. It’s more work for sure but let’s those who want to find themselves do so with more ease. Here we go.

When I arrived to the Javits Center the lines were already incredibly long but that is nothing new when it comes to this particular event. This year had a new process where you had to tap a screen with your badge when you went in or went out so that added to the wait time but it surely helped prevent those fake badges from getting into the event. While I waited on line I met this charming Aussie lass who kept me company until we both went in and on our separate ways. I guess she was in SHIELD Cosplay.

The God of Mischief Loki was a popular Cosplay once again and this season I would encounter several of his female counterparts. Dare I say “Lokette”? Whatever the proper syntax this young lady was sure imposing.

Then there was this awesome She-Hulk Cosplayer and she was reflecting upon the time where the Jade Giantess was a member of the Fantastic Four. Remember those stories? That was when The Thing was off world somewhere.

There was a giant Mega Bloks Army Vehicle in the lobby and the attendees of the con were able to assemble something of their own with the bin of bloks that were there for them to use. No I didn’t make anything. Next time.

This charming Cosplayer was helping out at the booth for Elite Video Subscriptions. It lets you watch Anime on any device for a set price per month. Considering the popularity of this stuff I bet it works.

I’m going to assume that these next characters that came walking by had something to do with Candy Crush Saga.

One of the companies that we often see at Toy Fair when that event is being documented is Mega Bloks and they had a nice display up this year at Comic Con so I snapped some photos for you to enjoy.

The folks at Mattel Toys had a wonderful section at the NY Comic Con this year and since we didn’t see their pavilion last year at Toy Fair I figured let’s showcase them for a few photos as well. The did a cool Batman series among many other things but you can see for yourself.

Logo - Mattel“Monster High” is a runaway hit and if you have never heard about them, they are the teenaged daughters of the famous monsters of Film land. It’s a clever idea and let’s the young ladies have something a little edgier than just Barbie.

Mattel put out a classic 1966 “Batman” line and I love it. They look almost exactly like the characters on the show that I loved as a child. I will be buying these soon enough.

Mattel had a display where you could shoot a rubber figure at targets and win a prize. I did not win a prize so I am guessing that I do finally need glasses.
