NY Comic Con 2011 was in full sway now and we had arrived at the busiest day of the whole weekend. That’s right Cosplay Fans, I am talking about the Saturday opening of the event which unless I am mistaken in this drew about 100,000 fans last year. That’s a lot of comic book, science fiction, horror and video gaming maniacs if you ask me. Today I would be flying the event solo as our good buddy Skeleton Pete needed to take care of his own side of the fence. He’ll be back for the final day of Comic Con fun on Sunday and as I had done with the previous parts of the event posts, I am largely focused on the costumed participants with this year. There were a lot of photos to share from Saturday, so please continue as my media wanderings begin now…. Continue reading PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2011: Day 3; Part 1
Congratulations. You have safely arrived at segment three of our NY Comic Con 2011 coverage, we welcome you back and we thank you for your kind attention as we aim to deliver as many of the wonderful sights to your computer screen as possible. When I left you all in part two, I was still wandering around the halls of the Anime Festival section of the event. Last year this was downstairs on the lower level and I heard rumblings that they had felt pushed off to the side. This year they were up in the attic so to speak and truly felt separated from the main event so I don’t know if this helped them much more. I will say that they appear to have more things going on this time around. Here is some lovely artwork but again as I had mentioned, no sign, no name. Sigh.
Welcome back to Part 2 of the Day 2 adventures at the 2011 NY Comic Con. We really saw far too many great things to toss them all into one lengthy posting, so it was better to give you subdivisions. Hey it worked for Rush right? I am sorry that was just a corny music scribe joke. Let’s get back to business with the task at hand with these great cosplayers. I only recognized the Black Cat and The Crow but they looked great.
Friday was here and we were now at what amounted to the true beginning of the NY Comic Con for 2011. Yesterday’s preview that we managed to get during the Press, Professionals & VIP Ticket Holders day was great, but it was only a three hour tour of what was there and this event is not something that is easily digested in that amount of time by any stretch of the imagination. As mentioned in the first chapter of these adventures I will be breaking the days up into different parts to allow an easier manner of enjoyment. I snapped a lot of photos and the Press adventuring continues now.
Once again joining me for the Con would be Skeleton Pete as he was mapping out his own coverage on his blog. The weather on Friday was being reported on the questionable side so we arrived at the Javits Center shortly after the doors to the tremendous space had been opened. As we walked down the street we witnessed a lot of the Cosplayers heading in the same direction and our first photo for the day was this charming Harley Quinn. She surprised me when she said she had remembered me and the website from the Emilie Autumn show that was back in February. Here we see her willing to hench for hugs and with a mini Joker.
Hey there, and welcome back. We are so glad that you could join us once again and are willing to brave the myriad amount of images and views from the NY Comic Con 2011. As I stated in the opening chapter of this group of narratives, there was a lot to see over the course of four days and now without any further adieu let us continue along with the masked merriment. First up we see Mr. Jason Edmiston. He was at a table in Artist Alley. I will admit to you readers early on that I didn’t focus as much on the Artist Alley section for this Comic Con this time around. This year I wanted to give heavy attention to as many of the wonderful Cosplayers that I could since they work so hard at bringing this event to colorful life.
Here is the booth for Pantheon Graphic Novels. They are a Random House company and one of the books they were showcasing at the Con was “Meta Maus”, a look inside the ground-breaking “Maus” storyline.
