For me, Day 2 of New York Comic Con 2013 was better. I actually got to visit the main floor instead of waiting in autograph lines. I bought a ton of Doctor Who stuff plus t-shirts that proclaim my love for Doctor Who and Big Bang Theory. Saw a red Darth Vader break dancing but only got pictures of his friend.
There were some great costumes that people put a lot of thought and hard work in to. I may even dress up next year but only for one day. Some people wore their costumes everyday and by the last day they did not smell so fresh.
New York Comic Con isn’t always about the costumes. Sometimes you can say a lot with just a T-Shirt.
NYCC 2013 was my very first Con. I didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if wearing a costume was an unwritten rule and I would be looked down upon because I didn’t wear a one.
I decided not to wear a costume. I’ve been to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and know the temperatures can vary depending on where you are and how many people are in the area. Also, I didn’t want to wrestle a costume during bathroom breaks. The stalls are teeny, tiny. I wore jeans and plain shirts.
When I arrived I saw tons of costumes but I also saw people in jeans and shirts just like me. I felt so much better. I also bought a few fun T-shirts to wear to next year’s Comic Con. Here are a few more fun T’s. Let me know which one is your favorite.
I was walking by a really long autograph line and this woman caught my eye because of the book she was reading (Huge Penis), the Doctor Who lunchbox and the red bow tie. No one should underestimate this woman. I bet she has a plethora of hidden talents.
This was me around 2am when sleep wouldn’t come.
This was me around 5am because I still couldn’t fall asleep.
When my alarm went off and I still hadn’t gone to sleep.
Trying so hard to stay awake at work.
After I decided to drink lots of coffee to wake up.
When I get home.
Besides reading this is my plan for the weekend!
