Re: Saw lots of SciFi themed characters at NYC Comic Con

There were dozens and dozens of Hit Girls, some not even female.
At least 20 flashes, many a pirate and yes anime cos-play.
I'll have to create a flicker account, but first need to reduce the size of the pictures to something manageable.

So whats the story with the folks wearing the costumes at these things? I havent been to a con since the early 90s. Back then it seemed to be fans wearing their own homemade costumes. Now I have to wonder sometimes they hire people to wear the costumes.

Nah. I think it's still mostly fans showing off their homemade costumes--and basking in the attention of other con attendees. I saw an entire crew of X-Men wandering down the sidewalk to McDonald's--including the amusing sight of Storm pushing a baby carriage.

The only exceptions would be the booth babes working the GREEN HORNET booth or whatever.

Re: Saw lots of SciFi themed characters at NYC Comic Con

Okay, next time I'm planning to go to NYCC I clearly need to pay more attention beforehand. Far too many people I would have liked to have met there. A TrekBBS meet-up would be kinda cool. Though I was only there Sunday.
