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.
