NYCC 2013 Photo Parade: Bring On the Cosplayers!

If there’s one thing New York Comic Con has become known for, it’s the amazing variety and creativity shown by its costumed attendees. This year’s batch of enthusiastic cosplayers raised the bar once again, and with CBR big wig Jonah Weiland enjoying a post-Con getaway in a far-off exotic land, Senior Editor Stephen Gerding has stepped in to comment on photographer Sheheryar Shahid’s look back at the show.

Possibly the most obvious Deadpool crossover

that will never happen

Impressive V for Vendetta cosplay

I have no idea,

but I find it genuinely frightening

It’s not a Comic Con without a crew

of Ghostbusters!

Perhaps the bloodiest Kitana cosplay I’ve ever seen I’m familiar with Blue, Black and Green Beetles,

but Yellow is a new one on me

Super Best Friends! The cutest li’l Red Lantern Mera

you’ll ever see

Not only do I not know what this is (Ravage?),

I have no idea how it worked

Everyone loves a good Dr. Girlfriend cosplay

Bloody and dangerous. Seriously, how many false

alarms did the Transit Police field last weekend?

Classic Harley Quinn is always a crowd pleaser

Whoda thunk Power Rangers would be popular

for over twenty years?

Cad Bane cosplay – how do

people make these masks?

The variety of zombies throughout the weekend

was definitely impressive

Steampunk-ish Harley and a friend

New 52 Wonder Woman – Azzarello and Chiang

would likely approve

Spidey’s not really taking Doc Ock seriously…

New 52 Harley was another popular cosplay choice The family that Hulks together

stays together

All this outfit was missing was a giant Slim Jim! Well, this could change the traditional

Brainaic/Lex Luthor dynamic

Somehow, seeing a Heath Ledger Joker smiling

makes him even scarier

A female Thor strikes a pose

Sharknado hits NYC Dueling Clarks!

How could we NOT include a “Point Break” cosplay? A beautiful and dangerous couple

This is either a Día de Muertos outfit, or

a Bedazzled Joker. Either way, I dig it.

Probably the least funny Deadpool cosplay

all weekend

Ladies Love Cool Vader Most adorable Edward Scissorhands I’ve ever seen

Impressive Stryfe and swashbuckling Nightcrawler Power Girl continues

Weeping Angels dotted the NYCC

landscape all weekend long


For the life of me, I can’t

figure out how Mysterio could see out

of his helmet

Family portrait time

This guy more than pulls off Kratos Yaya Han rocks a Phoenix costume

Black Cat continues to be a popular cosplay subject This is the first time I’ve seen J. Scott Campbell’s

Mary Jane at a convention

Bane looks like he’s ready

to bring down the Dark Knight

This Gollum probably scared more kids than

the zombies shuffling around…

…though zombie Mario might give him a run

for his Precious

Is this Frank Miller’s next project?
