PiercingMetal’s “Top Nine” Instagrams For 2019

Greetings my friends, we’ve arrived at the time of the year where people get to showcase their “Top Nine” images on Instagram and this reveal is done when they tabulate all of the likes across your profiles posts. Though I used Instagram quite a bit this past year I really fell behind based on just how many events I was attending. There is only so much time in the day and with major events like the Toy Fair, New York Comic Con and Anime NYC being so loaded with visuals I had my hands full.

Exploring WinterCon 2017 @ Resorts World Casino (Part 1)

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.
