Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 2

wintercon logo

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.

Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day Four (Part 3)

“This is the end, Beautiful friend, This is the end, My only friend, The end. Of our elaborate plans, the end, Of everything that stands, the end, No safety or surprise, the end. I’ll never look into your eyes again…….” Hey friends, my apologies for seeming rather morose and foreboding but I tend to get that way after a lengthy batch of presentations like these New York Comic Con ones. That said we have indeed arrived at the final installment from this years convention with Part 3 of Day Four right before your very eyes. Since I’ve been telling people about these posts for the last few days I am sure that some are only joining us now and they should click HERE first to see all of the chapters that have come before this latest one. With our final installment I am just going to finish some visuals from the Artist Alley and Main Floor before I head home for some much needed rest. Let’s go.

Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day Four (Part 2)

By now you’ve probably surmised that the end of these installments is drawing near and you are correct in the assumption. Of our Day Four posts, this is the second to last one so if you’re just now joining us at the penultimate chapter of my 2018 New York Comic Con posts, I’d ask that you click HERE first to see all of the chapters that have come before this latest one. I’m in the Artist Alley a bit during this chapter so a lot of talented people to take note of and thank for their contributions to the comics medium.  Most of them have their names in the photo as well to eliminate unnecessary discussion.  I’ll try to find their websites, Facebook or Twitter Official accounts once all is said and done.  Let’s do this.

Exploring New York Comic Con 2018: Day Four (Part 1)

Welcome back my friends to the posts that never seem to end when it comes to the exploring of the 2018 New York Comic Con.  You’ve actually arrived at the beginning of the Day Four posts and this is the final day of the convention and one listed as “Family Day”.  This means that any badge holder with a Sunday pass, can purchase an additional Child Pass if their kid is of a certain age.  Since many are in strollers it can get seriously congested up on the Expo Floor so my general practice is to finish up in Artist Alley.  If you haven’t seen any of the preceding chapters, please click HERE first to see all of the posts that have come before this latest one. With this installment I focused on a lot of the cosplayers and will only be chiming in on occasion. How many of the characters can you name? Let’s go and enjoy and start with my immediate favorite of the day.  Look at this fun scenario.
