I just got home from my very first day at New York Comic Con 2013. It wasn’t exactly what I expected. What I expected to see were tons of people dress in crazy costumes. And I did and they didn’t disappoint. I saw Power Rangers, Doctor Whovians, steam punk, Transformers, Zombies, Anime characters, Jessica Rabbit, Nordic Gods, Avengers, Justice League, Villians, and things that can only come from dreams. Everyone was so nice and let me take pictures of them.
Before going to Comic Con I read the “How to Survive NYCC” section and realized that Comic Con has a big
problem with body order and stinky people. The tips kept mentioning to put on deodorant before coming and to bring some with you. It also mentioned that Con goers should wear clean clothes and shower. I just thought, “is it really so bad that they have to put it on the website?” I found out from others today that yes, it really is that bad. I also think that the list should add lent roller to the “Items to Bring” list. Every time I wanted to sit down I had to look first because Wookies shed and so do wigs, costumes and drabbits.
While standing in line to get autographs I saw some of the celebrities take pictures with fans while they were signing autographs. There were some lines I didn’t want to stand in so I zoomed in on the guests and took a picture. I didn’t know they didn’t want their picture taken until after I took them. I did get some pics with celebrities.
Other than that I spent the majority of the day waiting in lines. Waiting 45 minutes for the shuttle to the convention only to find out it stopped running. Then waited in line to get inside; then waited in line to get autographs; waited in line for lunch. Then almost waited in line for the Wikia Cosplay Contest but found out my “All Access” badge got me in first. Kahn won Best in Show and Fan
Favorite. Everybody kept yelling his name. It was hilarious.
Tomorrow I plan on doing more than waiting in lines.
I took a lot more pictures but I need to get to bed so I will make a massive picture post at the end of NYCC. But here are a few more of the celebrities I saw today.
