Greetings Geeks!!!! Welcome back to more of the wandering in the aisles of the Resorts World Casino expo floor where the 2019 WinterCon was taking over like gangbusters. I’m continuing from where I left off in Chapter 1 so be sure to visit that installment first in the event you are just joining us. This chapter has a LOT of the cosplayers that we met and I will not be naming all of them since you should know that stuff by now if you are reading this website. I will however begin with some famous names in Japanese Pop Culture with Tsugutoshi Komada and Bin Furuya. Komada played Jet Jaguar in the “Godzilla Vs. Megalon” film and my hope is that this character somehow returns in the upcoming “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” film that opens next summer. Then there is Bin Furuya who portrayed Ultraman. Arigato for the photos gentlemen.

Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 1

Greetings my fellow Geeks, it’s time once again to offer up the findings at the recently held WinterCon which took over one of the expo floors at the massive Resorts World Casino in Queens. This year marks my third straight year of attending as a member of the accredited press and amounts to my final convention being covered for this side of my creative fence. Let’s start exploring the visuals and see if we chance upon any old friends.

These fun-loving cosplayers were my first “fans” of the day and so they are thusly honored. For the convention I’d be once again using my trusty “convention camera” which is my handy dandy Samsung and my mobile phone, the Galaxy Note 8 since I want to load a lot of slightly different visuals up to our Instagram. I’ll have that linked in my closing so don’t worry about it right now.
