PiercingMetal Goes To Special Edition: NYC 2014 – Day 1 Pt. 2

Hey there friends in Geek fandom, welcome back to my in-depth coverage of the first ever Special Edition NYC Con; This event is a brand new offshoot of the mega-popular NY Comic Con that happens here at the Javits Center in October and its overall premise and rallying call is “Comics, Art, Culture” and with that being the case I have a lot of photos to share with you. There is plenty of wonderful Cosplay coming up in this chapter and the ones to follow so how about we get underway. I’ll start off with one of the many artist tables that I saw.

Speaking of lines, at SENYC the fans could get their tickets for New York Comic Con nice and early and that line was akin to meeting KISS in some respect. I had put in my Press Credentials request already so I did not get on this line. Perhaps I should see if my friends need a ticket though before this event ends.

I was feeling really zonked but this charming lass offered me a shot of coffee.  I actually took two but that is because I am a Gemini.  She kindly obliged, thank you miss the Metal Command is forever in your debt.  Well, at this Con at least ;p
