……and we’re back, did you miss us? No need to answer because I know you did. So as I mentioned in yesterday’s post about the wonders of the NY Comic Con, I will be delivering about fifty images per post across the next few days to keep it easy to follow and to not overwhelm the senses. You’ll thank me later for sure. Now let’s get on down to it with “Chapter Two of NY Comic Con Day 2”. As I’ve done in the past with posts like these I blend the wonders of the convention together in terms of the fantastic designs on the Cosplayers and of course the myriad of creative resources that are at every turn. First up for this chapter is The Red Hood. You might remember him as being the original identity of The Joker but now its Jason Todd behind the red helmet and he means business.
It seems that memories of Toy Fair tend to follow us here to Comic Con every now and again and I am alright with that. These are The Vamplets and now they have a fanciful storybook to go along with their characters. That looked awesome and I think some kind of animated cartoon might work out as well.
Below are some of the new Vamplets characters. They now have a horse, a kitten and a bat. Neat huh?
Here is Jamal Igle creator of “Molly Danger”. She is the world’s most powerful 10 Year Old I am told. Jamal’s table was right next to the Vamplets and I kind of expected to see him in the Artist Alley area but perhaps there was no more space. Whatever the case, great stuff.
You might be thinking that “The Watchmen’s” own Rorschach is now doing table detail at Comic Con but you would be mistaken because this is none other than the freaky wares of a company called “Chromonite”. Apparently their masks morph and change in a similar fashion to that of the popular Antiheroes own “Face” and with that being the case I just had to snap a couple of photos of them. Weird wild stuff.
Here’s professional wrestler Brimstone and his companions in entertainment at the Hound Comics booth. I’ve met Brim a few times over the past couple of years and he is a pretty awesome dude. Check out his stuff in greater detail via their link at the end of this chapter.
Right next to the Hound Comics booth was the Stan Lee Foundation. I neglected to take any of their literature and as you can see their table rep was already engaged with someone so you will have to look them up online at the end of this post to learn more about their efforts.
At the 2012 NY Comic Con we met the folks behind “Abduction Wine” and this time around they had a concoction called “Abduction Energy” which was very likely a little bit more appropriate for this kind of event given the disparity of ages attending. Sadly I was not able to try a sample but I would have liked to even though I am not a fan of these kind of drinks. Well, I can drink Red Bull.
A couple of cool designs by Nerdfit. Stormtroopers in sunglasses – Very Summery.
Here is a charming young lady from Sonic Quake products. They have a device that lets you charge your cell phone quickly and also have a light. There are other products as well.
This Wizard was awesome. I know its not Gandalf but was not sure who it was supposed to be until a friend told me that it was the Ice King from Adventure Time. This had to be an uncomfortable cosplay today.
Wow, I am getting Comic Con deja-vu right here as these two ladies were a pair of Metal heads that I met at last year’s convention. It was nice to see them once again for sure. Their outfits rocked. That’s Enchantress on the left by the way.
Not sure who she is supposed to be but nicely done outfit.
Hey look its “Spicy” Magazine!!! The rep at the table told me that there were supposed to be models from the magazine at the booth but they were running late. That was too bad because I would have gladly featured its “Spicy Latinas” (oh and I am not being sexist that is the mags tagline).
These next couple of photos showcase some really cute miniature dragons called “Dragon Pets”. You could bend them into outfit accessories. They are handmade so a little pricier than something mass produced but they sure had a quality to them and they are sold exclusively at Renaissance Fairs and now right here at NY Comic Con.
“Father Of Dragons”?
This was certainly a cross company collective of Cosplay.
Here are the Gothically stylish folks at H Naoto Designs booth. They really have some nice stuff for the ladies. Do check them out.
Here’s the charming ladies at the Pammy Cakes Boutique booth. They create what are referred to as “Sweet Lolita Designs”. Look it up.
I think we should worry about Wilfred considering that Cruella deVille seems to own him now.
Pokemon always gets proper representation during Comic Con….
Let’s get Medieval – This booth had some coolness brewing and even a fanciful flautist. They’re from Knight Realms and its a live-action role playing game. Now that sure sounds interesting. A few photos will come for their awesome booth.
Loved the outfit on this girl, and yes she was really playing. Did a great job as well.
I was tempted to ask her if she could do any Jethro Tull but time was not on my side.
This gent has light on his side. See the lantern? Get it? Sigh.
I don’t remember seeing any body painting going on at last year’s convention but that was twelve months and over 150 events ago for me so my memory is a little shot. My guess was that this girl was getting a Poison Ivy makeover.
A section of comic books. I dared not look for fear of finding something I wanted.
These two ladies rocked!
and then Spider-Man jumped into the frame. Added an obnoxious quip (as he is prone to do) and zoomed away.
This statue reminded me of a friend. I mean this in a good way though. She agreed and was not insulted at all.
This chap here is the creator of the character called “Winzlow”; I didn’t really have too much time to get the 411 on it but that is what the weblink at the end is for so you can dig around yourself. He was a nice guy and I found the quick premise had charm.
This might be a good idea for some but sadly not to me. Gone are my interests in chopping up the comics page to put the images under glass to wear as jewelry. That said there are people that like this kind of thing. As a young lad I ruined far too many books with a pair of scissors before I began collecting. Maybe you did that as well.
“Enter freely and of your own will” said these two vivacious vampires and while I was down to hang, the price was too high for my eternity. I admit to surprise about capturing them on film though 🙂
There was one time at the Con where I stumbled upon the Cosplay Deviants booth and this was slightly similar and was called “My Geek Goddess”. The overall premise is 18+ but you can look at these SFW images.
They had the more adult-oriented photos behind a curtain called “The Boobie Trap” but there was no time for me to peruse so instead I snapped a couple of shots of the lovelies repping the booth for good measure. Sorry that I did not know the names of any of these Geek Goddesses
Time to head over to the Metal side of the room and see what was happening over at the booth being maintained by Metal Sucks, Metal Injection and Vertabrae 33. They have had interesting guests over the last couple of years so its always my pleasure to raise a glass or the horns to them in my coverage.
Frank Godla and Vince Neilstein Representing m/
The great Dave Wyndorf of Monster Magnet.
Here’s Rodney, Vince Neilstein, Wyndorf and Frank Godla
I could not resist getting a shot of my own with the great Dave Wyndorf.
The guys had some awesome new shirt designs.
Now for a couple of more Cosplayers and we are on our way to the next chapter 🙂
That brings us to the end of another exciting chapter my dear friends but as I’ve said there is plenty more to come so keep those Internet dials set for the adventures to continue. I will see you again tomorrow with our third installment from the Day Two wanderings. Until then please feel free to click around some of the official links that we discussed in this post to learn more about the companies or creative people behind them.
