New York Comic Con draws nearly 200,000 people to the Javits Center each year. It’s the place to show off your fandom and for many, that means dressing as beloved characters. Cosplay is a huge proponent of Comic Con and sometimes the main draw.
When we arrived on Saturday for Day 2, we were overwhelmed by the number of cosplayers milling about with costumes from movies, TV shows, comics, video games and more. Some were last-minute getups and others were painstaking projects. Nonetheless, we were impressed with this year’s crop of cosplays.
Below, we’ve rounded up 18 incredible cosplays that we enjoyed and think you will, too.
