Ah Sunday, that quiet restful day at the end of the week.
Not at Comic Con! Turn out look to be up on Sunday against last year, from my observation, with a lot of young kids and families on hand. This makes me think a few things:
- Could NYCC be outgrowing the Jacob Javits Center? and if it is, where else in New York City could it move to? Would it leave Manhattan? Would it go to Queens? or even (gasp) New Jersey?
- The economy, at least in the New York Metropolitan area, has improved somewhat, with what had to be a record turnout on a Sunday (if not for the whole weekend) it is, to me at least a sign that people have a little more spending money in their pockets.
I spent the last day of the con really trying to talk to people that will help me bring you the most interesting stories from Geeksville, like the Hal Johnson, the author of Immortal Lyncanthropes and some of from publishers like the artists behind some the best indy and small press comics like IDW Publishing, Valiant and Dark Horse. And where to find some of the coolest swag out there for nerds on the go in this busy city.
But again – your here for costumes, so here it is the best costumes I saw today, including the CosPlay of the Day!
Now there were a lot of great costumes out there today, and it was a tough choice for us here at the Geeksville HQ. Why did we pick DC second stringer (and New 52 casualty) Donna “Wonder Girl/Troia/Darkstar” Troy? We see tons of Wonder Women, and Cassie Wonder Girls out there, but Donna gets very little love in the cosplay world, and to do the black costume (and have it come out looking so fantastically) just earned her the top spot.
Like the rest of the week the best of the rest are, and below, and you can see the all the cosplay pics I took Saturday on our Facebook Page. Don’t forget to hit the like button!
