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.
Greetings my friends and welcome back to another exciting chapter of my coverage of the 2018 New York Comic Con. As I’ve noted in an earlier chapter, this is my 9th straight year of attending the convention and I am blown away by how big its become. It’s the highlight of many a geeks year and I can’t blame them since there is so much to enjoy. To keep your focus, I’ve begun to break the days down into chapters and to see any of the stuff that’s come before this narrative just click HERE to open a new tab with all of the posts that have gone live on the website. In the preceding chapter, I lauded the benefits of the Cheerios cereal found in the Family Room and here is the box that I secured my stash in during the days wander.
Generally speaking, I start my first day coverage in “The Block” but so far today I was being aimless and drifting about from section to section. I wanted to see some artist friends so quickly headed to the Artist Alley area.
Now that both the annual NY Comic Con and brand new Anime NYC conventions have come and gone, you’re probably thinking that you are done with this kind of event for year but you would be wrong. Yes my friends, WinterCon was here and once again being held at the spacious Resorts World Casinos in Queens. I enjoyed myself last year at the event which I documented HERE for those interested and was happy to be returning to see what this year had in store for me. As I walked over the casino floor to the main event upstairs, I met a mixed bag of creative Cosplay with some DC Villains, a Doctor and some of the X-Men. Who says we all can’t get along. Let’s go.
