You may have gotten on the train this past weekend, sat down, and saw some of your favorite superheroes, heroines, villains and television characters commuting with you. That’s only because it’s that time of the year when nerds, geeks, comic book enthusiast, gamers and television enthusiast converge on the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center for Comic Con.
Produced and managed by ReedPOP, New York Comic Con was first started in 2006 with a total attendance of 33,000 people.It serves as place where comic book junkies can meet up buy memorabilia, rare comics, play video games and meet their favorite television characters.Last year New York Comic Con boasted an amazing 133,000 fans in attendance only second to then the more popular San Diego Comic Con. The picture above is a clear indication that they have even surpassed that number this year with an astounding 151,000 tickets sold surpassing San Diego Comic Con this year. The SFPL was invited to partake in the festivities this year, and we enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed all of the great costumes. Checkout some of our favorite cosplay participants below.
Power Ranger costumes were very popular this year. It even helped that the original Green Ranger himself Jason David Frank (Tommy) was on hand. He would be very proud of this Green Ranger costume.
This guy totally nailed Wolverine, if Hugh Jackman ever needs a stunt double we think we found a suitable one.
The Joker’s sidekick Harley Quinn is another favorite amongst female cosplayers. This young lady’s take on the iconic DC villain was on point.
We are sure we have some fly gals and gents who loved Sailor Moon growing up. If so we are sure you appreciate this take on Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon. Well Done!
Batman will always be a fan favorite, it’s also the 75th anniversary of the “World’s Greatest Detective”. This Batman costume, drawing inspiration from The Dark Knight movies was boss!
Even without the suit of armor this take on Tony Stark was great. #WeLike
We found our Wonder Woman roaming the halls of Comic Con.
It’s morphing time! #nycc #nycc14 #iforgotmypowercoinathome #mmpr #goldranger

Our photographer and fellow Fly Guy Beanz couldn’t resist and had to do it for the gram with the Gold Ranger.
Johnny Depp would love this female spin on his version of the Mad Hatter he portrayed in the Alice in Wonderland film.
WE Loved this young lady in her Leeloo costume from blockbuster film ‘The Fifth Element’.
Khaleesi from Game of Thrones was another fan favorite amongst the ladies this year, this young lady nailed it and had her trusty dragon in hand.
This voodoo priestess was great!
Our friend Estelle Darlings would absolutely approve this costume of her character Garnet and Steven Quartz from the hit Cartoon Network series Steven’s Universe.
We couldn’t help but laugh at this guy dressed up as a monk worshiping Mother O. Oprah con coming soon.
Legendary super soldier Solid Snake from the popular video game Metal Gear was on hand.
We definitely enjoyed ourselves this year and was glad the good folks at Comic Con extended the invite our way. We will definitely be back next year for even more coverage and to capture the great costumes. We definitely recommend that you attend Comic Con at least one time in your life. It’s definitely one of New York’s premiere and most FLY events and hey let your inner child flourish.
