If you’ve been keeping up with PiercingMetal on the social networking side, you know that it’s been a busy week already as over the last few days I’ve been spending time exploring the Book Expo that was being held at the Javits Center. While some of the discoveries at that convention have made their way here, a larger part of it gets posted on our Lifestyle Blog partner website “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken. With the Book Expo completed it was time to get down to business at the still new Five Points Festival which has returned for its second year as a convention. This year it would move to the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and this space is very well known to me as its the same place where I attend the NYC Hot Sauce Expo every year. The Five Points Festival is loaded with sights and designer toys galore. Let’s take a walk.
Hello again my fine-feathered convention geek friends. Welcome back to my in-depth wanderings of the Five Points Festival. We’re now up to the fourth and final chapter in this presentation and in this one I will be finishing up with the photographs that I shot over the course of the Saturday session of the event. I’m going to start this chapter with some more of the wonderful Designer Toys that we walked past.
Okay my friends, we are now going to present you with the fun-filled visual findings from the first-ever “Five Points Festival”. The convention was taking place on Pier 36 down on the Lower East Side and it would be the first time that I ever went down this way for an event. It was pretty easy to get to by mass transit and then would be a few minutes walk. Check out one of the promo pieces of art to warm up to what is coming in these photos. As you can see the premise was Designer Toys, Comics, Street Art, Beer and an overall NYC vibe. This is going to be interesting for sure. Here we go.
Well hello again my friends. I’m back with another 2013 NY Comic Con posting. I’ve been at the Day Three stuff for awhile now and that is because I took so many photographs and wanted to give each person their due. This particular posting is MOSTLY cosplayers and I don’t think I need to line out a Catwoman or Batman or Green Lantern but if its a Cosplayer that I know about I will be mentioning them and leaving you a link at the bottom of the posting. Here we go into the fray.
So here were are again my fiends on the third proper day of the NY Comic Con but my own second day of the explorations since I did not manage to be a part of the very first day based on getting locked out of the Press signups and then missing the chance to purchase a full four day ticket. Ugh. The great thing about Comic Con is that everyone is permitted to carry a camera but now I had my work cut out for me in catch up and I probably missed a few things that I would have liked to see. Oh well, here we go with the snagged visuals from the Saturday session which is historically speaking the most packed and chaotic of all the days. As I walked into the Convention I was greeted by this menacing Predator Cosplay. I was not sure he was a Cosplay in all honesty.
Once I was safely inside I got my gear together and felt that I should hit “The Block” section again because there are so many different things in there to observe.
