Exploring Big Apple Comic Con 2018: Part 2

Hello again my fiends, and welcome back to the narratives that are focusing on the just recently held Big Apple Comic Con. The event once again took place at the Penn Plaza Pavilion (oops, I mean the Jordan Pearl Pavilion as its now called) and we attended the Sunday part of the event. If you missed the first installment that is okay as you can just click HERE and be up to speed before we continue along.

Now since I ended the previous chapter with some residents of the Spider-Verse, how about beginning this installment with some more of them?

Exploring Big Apple Comic Con 2018: Part 1

Considering how many of these conventions that we’ve been attending for the sake of the Geek Media, it’s pretty safe to assume that we love the creativity and colorful displays to be found at events such as New York Comic Con, WinterCon and now the Big Apple Comic Con which was happening here in NYC just this past weekend.

Though we would have preferred to attend on the Saturday portion of the weekend, the only provisions that were offered were for Sunday so that would be the day of the exploration.  PiercingMetal hasn’t been to BACC in a couple of years and it was based on my scheduling of other things at the same time but now its time to get back into the NY Groove with the coolness and the cosplay.  Let’s go.

I’m just going to jump into the fray since my MTA journey to the city was an arduous one. Sunday train travel has been a beast of late and its become a reason I tend to avoid the day in Manhattan if at all possible. Oh yeah, this is Josh Adams, son of Neal. We’ll get to him later.

PiercingMetal Is Heading To Toy Fair 2018 @ Jacob Javits Center

Hey there readers, just a quick alert about our next few days of activities as the PiercingMetal Outlet will once again be heading to the American International Toy Fair that will be happening at the Javits Center over the next four days. This is our 8th year of attendance and much like the last few years, additional reports will be posted over on “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken”. Be sure to stay tuned for these narratives so you can be on top of the holiday purchasing season.

Much like our coverage of the New York Comic Con, the Toy Fair adventures will be serialized posts with many of them being direct company focuses to offer greater impact on their product lines. I might do a day by day overview with additional thoughts but that will be a battlefield decision at the moment. Those interested should bookmark THIS TAG as it will bring up anything that gets posted about the 2018 Convention. I also encourage that you follow our Official Social Networks of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter since I plan on being very active on them during the event and would love to have you along for the fun discoveries.

Stay tuned for the fun, I can’t wait to share my findings with all of you.

Exploring WinterCon 2017 @ Resorts World Casino (Part 3)

Welcome back once more my friends, you have safely arrived at the third and final chapter of our coverage of the 2017 “WinterCon” which takes place over at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY. It’s a cool place and right next to the Aquaduct Racetrack and of course there is the actual casino floor if you care to try your luck (if of legal age to do so that is) but I digress. If you are new to the website and this kind of overview then you might have missed the two previous chapters. Those visitors can click HERE to see what they missed and catch up with the rest of us. I’m picking up where I left off the last time which was on the outside deck where all the cosplayers were milling about. It was cold for me and I had a jacket so I don’t know how those folks in spandex were dealing with it.
