If you had no idea what was going on in midtown Manhattan this past weekend, you might be very confused. Why were those girls painted green? Why does that guy have a giant sword made out of aluminum foil and cardboard? New York Comic-Con (NYCC 2017) welcomed hundreds of thousands of people to the Jacob Javits Center, and with events spilling over to Hammerstein Ballroom, Madison Square Garden, and even the Schwarzman Library, the cosplayers were out and about and in style.
Check out the cosplay images from NYCC 2017 here below.
Each event inspired cosplay: Ash vs Evil Dead had chainsaw-armed hardware store clerks while manga fans wore anime-inspired costumes. Thankfully, Deadpool and Harley Quinn took a step back this year (but were still present). Popular cosplay this year were Wonder Woman, Eleven (from Stranger Things), and couples made Starlord and Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy trendy. All the Marvel characters from the ever-growing MCU were there, and old DC favorites Batman and Superman never go out of style. My favorite was the couple who went as Barf and Dot Matrix from Spaceballs. Someone even dressed as the Javits Center itself.
