NYCC 2012 Day 2 – The Day in Review, and COSPLAY of the DAY

And the crowds descend upon the Javits Center, on the far West Side of Midtown Manhattan (the MTA can’t finish the 7 train extension fast enough for me).

Seriously there were a lot of you folks there today, and I got to meet a whole bunch of you!

It was a crazy day with lots to see at Day 2 of New York Comic Con.   For me the highlights were meeting Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison (and talking Spamalot with him), Buddy Scalara’s Comic Book School (I attended the editor’s on editing panel) the Valiant Comics Panel (some very cool stuff coming up!) and all that incredible cosplay that you do so well.

And that is why you are here, right?  So no sense making you wait any longer, here is Friday’s Cosplay of the Day.

Wouldn't you want to be stolen by this Idris for 700 years?

Bragging Rights for Cosplay of the Day go to Tiffany here in her incredibly detailed Idris costume!

I hadn’t planned on picking a Doctor Who Costume today, Sunday is supposed to be a big Doctor Who cosplay day, but I thought this was a fantastic take on the costume
