The Details: Anyone who attends the massive NY Comic Con event knows that it’s a mega-dose of awesome sights and scenes and colorful characters of many kinds. An all day wandering of such a happening finds the attendees needing to unwind a little bit and that makes this latest contest something awesome to showcase as CEG Presents their annual “Cosplay Cruise”. This year’s event will feature Guest Hosts like noted cosplayers Soni Aralynn, Kristen Lanae, Brit Bliss along with Ming Chen from Comic Book Men. There will be prizes and special events across the journey, a DJ and a cash bar and concessions for the 18+ attendee and thanks to the awesome promoters at CEG Presents, PiercingMetal is going to be sending a few lucky Cosplayers onto the high seas (well, out into the Hudson River to be more precise) to enjoy this event. Read more about the location and how to participate down below.
When and Where: Friday, October 6th 8pm @ Circle Line Cruises (West 42nd Street and 12th Avenue).
To Participate: This event contest is for the Cosplayers only and not the “Cosplay Curious” and with that being the case I’ve fashioned a few questions that you need to answer as your entry. They are pretty involved so you might want to jot them all down on a memo and then past it into the response on the contest to make sure you don’t lose connection – Here we go.
A: What is the best Cosplay that you have ever done and why?
B: How long did your finest work take you to complete?
C: Name three different Cosplays you have done over the years.
D: Tell me some Cosplays that you hope to do in the near future.
E: What Cosplay do you envision bringing to the Cosplay Cruise if you are one of our winners?

I caught the ladies of Lez Zeppelin a few months ago when they were doing an In Store performance at J&R Music World in celebration of their then new release “Lez Zeppelin I” (my review of can be found by clicking that title).
Artist: Lez Zeppelin
Venue: Circle Line Cruises (New York, NY)
Label: Pie Records
If I had to think back about when I first heard anything about Lez Zeppelin, I will say that I originally thought that it was on some compilation release that featured all female tribute bands. I ended up being incorrect in that assumption but I am sure that it will come to me eventually about when I first heard them at the craft. Despite this momentary lapse of reason, I did know that the band was good and that a number of my friends liked what they were up to and when I was contacted by a publicist that I deal with very often about doing an album review and checking out their appearance at this year’s Record Store Day at J&R Music World I would be a little more up to speed about them myself. For that gig the band performed acoustically as their drummer was dealing with an injury but I had to say that I really enjoyed the presentation and the sound as well as the brief meet that I had with the band members. Of course I knew that I was not getting the full and proper picture because one of the key appeals about Led Zeppelin music is the pounding drum beats that drive the band forward. My chance to correct this would come with tonight’s adventure as the band was set to embark on a NYC “Rocking The River” cruise and this was connected to the Circle Line Music Cruise in some fashion. The residents of the Big Apple are well aware of the Circle Line as it’s a popular tourist attraction and nowadays we are finding that cruises seem to be very chic for some of the heavy musical hitters as bands like KISS, Queensryche and the “70,000 Tons Of Metal” event that all take place on large scale vessels.
