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

Welcome back to Part 2 of the Day 2 adventures at the 2011 NY Comic Con. We really saw far too many great things to toss them all into one lengthy posting, so it was better to give you subdivisions. Hey it worked for Rush right? I am sorry that was just a corny music scribe joke. Let’s get back to business with the task at hand with these great cosplayers. I only recognized the Black Cat and The Crow but they looked great.

This stunning Vampiress was one of the denizens at Father Sebastian’s booth. He is a fangsmith and will set you up with custom fitted removable vampire fangs. The Father has arrived in NYC just in time for Halloween and can take care of you just in time for Samhain.

This lovely Princess Leia was advertising the “One Man Star Wars” show. That sure sounded like a blast but it would not be possible for me to enjoy it. I guess I better check around on YouTube.com for it.

Everyone loves Angry Birds these days so it makes sense to find some stuffed ones available for purchase.

Over at the Bandai part of the Comic Con they had a bunch of cool Godzilla dioramas set up. I am an old school Godzilla movie geek and I just had to snap a few photos of these for your enjoyment. It was very hard to not purchase any of these figures.

If you ever wondered what Boba Fett would be like if he were a chicken, then wonder no more. Chicken Fett; Isn’t that a High Power Rock band? Oh no, that is Chickenfoot.

Here is a clever cosplay idea. This is Bleez who is one of the Red Lanterns and hence now a member of the New Guardians. That is another one of The New 52 titles from DC Comics.

Here is a stunning White Queen and Star Sapphire who were actually helping to promote the new movie that Kevin Smith was working on. Villainy never looked so good.

I headed up to the Anime Festival which was once again connected to the Comic Con, but not as integrated this time around. To get to it, you had to navigate a couple of escalators. This was an interesting view so I snapped it.

I took this shot from the front of the Anime Festival. There were rows and rows of chairs and many tables. This was a crowded section and people who love this stuff – really love this stuff.

I took the time to step outside to get a little air and regain my strength. Nice view of the West Side Highway.

These ladies were locked in a castle at the Anime Festival and on the right we see Jeannie whose booth this actually was. She is an artist and a sculptor but to know this you pretty much had to ask. This was a problem I was finding with all of the Anime Festival vendors booths. So few of them let you know what they were all about and if a handful had business cards that was saying something.
