New York Comicon 2013

titleI was cutting it close when I left for Vegas and spent a week there before New York Comicon. The day I got back was the day the convention started! However, I managed to make it and was so excited to bring my mom this time around! My mother is my best friend so I take her to a lot of events with me. She is very adventurous so it makes me happy when I see her having a great time at these events. We had a blast and enjoyed seeing all of the artwork, artists, people in costumes, and more. As a comic lover, I went a little crazy with my wallet but it was all worth it. I bought a bunch of vintage romance comics and movie posters from the 1950s and also bought some art for my future office in Vegas. My mom also loves purchasing art so she got herself a few things as well. I think I might have her cover the show next year as she has become a pro at taking photos. Without her I wouldn’t have any at all to post here on my blog! My friend Nubia was also covering Comicon so it was awesome to see her and hang out for a bit. She looked ADORBS dresses as a My Little Pony and I wore some stuff from the Forever 21 Bats & Cats collection. I have been waiting for Comicon just so I could sport my Forever 21 cat woman cropped sweater and leather cat ears so I paired it with my favorite vintage leather shorts, some back seamed stockings, and my Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots. It wasn’t a costume but as jet lagged as I felt, it was comfortable and it worked. I was blown away by the people who dressed up and have to hand it to them for being so creative. It was very inspiring so of course I took photos of some of my favorites. Check it out inside!

  1. Had a great time with you. So many amazing Artists and Characters. I loved every bit of it. Can’t wait till next year, hope you will be here so we can do it together again.

  2. You looked adorbs. Love the whole outfit. I love going to the comic shows mainly to check out the costumes. I work for my cousin at the show out here and have definite girl crushes on a few of the professional cosplayers.
