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.

that will never happenImpressive V for Vendetta cosplayI have no idea,

but I find it genuinely frighteningIt's not a Comic Con without a crew

makes him even scarierA female Thor strikes a poseSharknado hits NYCDueling Clarks!How could we NOT include a "Point Break" cosplay?A beautiful and dangerous coupleThis is either a Día de Muertos outfit, or

a Bedazzled Joker. Either way, I dig it.Probably the least funny Deadpool cosplay
