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.
Yes dear friends, you are not imagining things and have successfully chanced upon another installment from my deep exploration into the 2017 NY Comic Con. As I am on the third part of the Day Two observations, I will leave it at that but encourage you to click on THIS LINK if you’ve missed any of the chapters that have come before this one. With this chapter I was going to head outside into the area that usually has the buses. During NYCC, the area is closed off and has a bunch of displays and food trucks. The cosplayers also take over this region and do photo shoots with whomever wants them. Some of the photographers bring all this heavy duty gear with them while I’m only brandishing my trusty Samsung point and shoot and my Galaxy Note 4 phone. It’s worked so far so lets get down to business.
