PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2011: Day 2; Part 3

Congratulations. You have safely arrived at segment three of our NY Comic Con 2011 coverage, we welcome you back and we thank you for your kind attention as we aim to deliver as many of the wonderful sights to your computer screen as possible. When I left you all in part two, I was still wandering around the halls of the Anime Festival section of the event. Last year this was downstairs on the lower level and I heard rumblings that they had felt pushed off to the side. This year they were up in the attic so to speak and truly felt separated from the main event so I don’t know if this helped them much more. I will say that they appear to have more things going on this time around. Here is some lovely artwork but again as I had mentioned, no sign, no name. Sigh.

These girls also had a cool booth and were selling some lovely drawings. The Anime craze is in full gear but something that I am totally lost at.

I decided that I was not going to figure it all out any deeper when I overheard the panel discussing the velocity of one of the bullets from a particular gun in an Anime series. Fortunately Captain America was near to help me back to things that I actually understood.

and when good is about can evil be far behind? The insidious Doctor Doom was up to no good for sure.

It was still Friday, and the crowd was massive. Take a look at these two overhead visuals of the main convention center area.

Hanging around we saw the new Amazing Spider-Man. The costume is slightly different from the one sported by Toby Maguire and I am really not to hip on their rebooting the franchise in the first place.

I chose to get another shot of the unmasked Dark Vader because I didn’t like how the first one came out.

Here is the Shirts For A Cure booth and this notable cause was founded by Punk Rock photographer Mark Beemer and it’s design is to help underprivileged woman get treatment for breast cancer. It works in tandem with numerous Punk bands. Kudos Mark on doing something awesome for people.

Toy Tokyo had a booth but it was hardly representative of the amazing store. Apparently Ron English was going to make an appearance and sign a new figure. He did that the last time. I just missed the time when he was there for a photo of him and the figure.

I briefly chatted music and journalism with this Cosplayer. I think I need an Anime index to know more of these characters. I am just so lost about them.

This is the one and only Olivia De Berardinis. She is well known for her work in Playboy along with many other things. I remember her collector cards and had a few sets of them over the years. Hmm, I wonder if they are worth anything.

These girls are from Blue Movie. It’s a band. People started asking them to sign photos so they borrowed my black sharpie for awhile. Not to worry, they made sure to give it back to me the next day. I snared their CD and if it fits within the context of the usual stuff on the website perhaps I can review it for you all.

If you have been following the trending Metal blogs then you know of the Metal Sucks guys. That’s Vince Neilstein pointing at me. They were sharing the booth with the artist who runs Vertabrae 33. That’s the artist Rodney Githens by the way.

There was a contest going on to win and X-Box that was encased in an R2D2 body. That’s pretty cool if it does anything else but I could not manage to find out since the booth was busy collecting entries for the contest.
