NYCC Friday Photo Parade – Bring On the Cosplayers

If there’s one thing New York City-based comic book and anime fans proved last weekend that they excel at, it’s the cosplay. Those experts descended en masse on New York Comic Con at the Jacob Javits Center, and CBR photog Pete Labrozzi was on hand to capture them by the dozens!

Below, check out the best of Friday’s fandom while Jonah “Can’t Avoid the Con Crud” Weiland chimes in with comments, compliments and well-intentioned snark.

Fantastic female Loki costume. Not sure what she’s dressed as, but that’s one hell of a costume!


Willfred! Or some weird furry thing I don’t want to know about. Kabuki warriors? Whatever it is, nice. Some great costumes thus far.


Joker Punisher


Batman and Catwoman The Riddler looks a bit perplexed.


Lovely ’40s era Marvel costumes. Disturbingly sexy Thor & Loki – I need to call my therapist, stat.


Gambit Cardboard box Deadpool – love it! Wow, some really good costumes.


Wait, what was I just saying about good costumes? You’ve let me down Arkham City Robin. Nick Fury & tessaract


Zatanna A papier mache zombie loses a bit of its effect.


The family that Thor’s together, stays together. Love this. No clue.


Breaking Bad – easy costume, but I kinda love it. Halo


Poison Ivy. I may be in love. Fantastic and beautiful! Avatar the Last Airbender cosplay group


Ghostbusters Arkham Harley Quinn


McFly!!!! And in character, too! Nice! She-Hawkeye & Kid Loki


Street Fighter I dunno — some guy from Jersey Shore with a hat? Please tell me no one ever cosplays as the Jersey Shore.


Pikachu No clue, but fun!


Adventure Time!! Rogue


Supermen & Wonder Woman Loki and Sif


Nightwing Dunno, but I’m actually surprised by how little there is to be snarky about. These are some great costumes!


Some Deadpools and a corporate looking Hulk. I really don’t know my anime at all.


Tank Girl – fantastic! Wait, is it Saturday night at Midnight? Frank N Furters


Ramona Flowers Golden Age Sandman – probably my favorite of the bunch (I’m biased – “Sandman Mystery Theatre” is one of my all time favs.)


Doctor Who Black Cat & Spidey


Anime. Bah. Darth Maul – I admire the work put in to this, but this one’s a no starter for me.


Double Dare cosplay! Mad Hatter


Something. Lesser Something.


Faceless Joker & co. – talk about timely! Sam Axe!!


Barf the Mawg from “Spaceballs” – that’s unexpected! Tony Stark and mask – weak sauce, dude.


Fantastic Ivy & Harley Jay and Silent Bob


Spider Girl takes refuge in Loki’s furs – that is some Loki costume! Amazing Spidey pic


Black Widow Young Cosplayers in Love
Seriously, this is one of the best groups of cosplayers I’ve seen come out of any convention.

Congrats to everyone on a job well done!
