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.|
|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|

|Ghostbusters||Arkham Harley Quinn|
|McFly!!!! And in character, too! Nice!||She-Hawkeye & Kid Loki|

|Pikachu||No clue, but fun!|
|Supermen & Wonder Woman||Loki and Sif|

|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|
|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!
