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.

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

The 2019 New York Comic Con began yesterday at the Javits Center and now its time to start sharing the visuals that were snagged on the first day of the event. This would mark the ninth year that PiercingMetal was attending the convention and I would once again be representing this medium as a member of the Pop Culture Press. Those who have enjoyed these narratives over the years will already know how I break up the coverage into a number of chapters with no more than “50” images in every post. I do this to allow for easier digestion and tagging and for those who are dressed in amazing cosplay to be able to find themselves. Once the Day One photos are done its onto Day Two and so on until I pass out from exhaustion. My plan is to hit all four days barring some emergency need of my time so let’s get this party started shall we? I won’t be chiming in on every single photo but only when the need for some text is warranted and before we head into the fray, those attending might want to peruse this handy list of guidelines that I compiled over on “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” – Trust me it will help you out (click HERE). Onward we go.
