New York Comic Con is in 3 weeks. Are you going to be cosplaying? What booths on the show floor are you looking forward to visiting?

How ready are all of you?
>>
This will be my first international con, very nervous/excited and exceptionally unprepared!
>>
A photo with Mark Hamill is $250.... I want to cry.
>>
Just got Friday and Saturday off of work so I can actually attend. I'm not looking forward to all the spazzy Rick and Morty fans that'll show up and spew shit memes.
>>
Do photographers charge at this con for photos?

Any scenic locations to shoot at in the con?
>>
So what the fuck are the rules for cosplay props this year? No guns at all no matter how fake they are? No real looking foam weapons? This is why new york shouldn't host comic Con. This shit is a joke.

I'm all for safety and security, but the security guards at this event every year clearly don't give a fuck about actual safety and more about how they can fuck over people since they can't attend the con because they are working or they despise the con because it's just a hassle for them.
>>
>>9631883
Love how people bitch about the prop rules, but then if something serious happens, people will bitch that NYCC didn't do enough.

Like pick one or the other. The prop rules have been there for the past 2-3 years, and they get tougher everytime, but people still buy badges and act surprise they keep making them stricter and stricter to please the mundies taht come, that can't tell the difference between a real gun and one made from insulation foam.

Such an issue, then stop buying tickets. It's the only way they'll eventually listen. Then again there's enough fake geeks that just want to come to the con, they'll buy the badge ignoring the cares of the cosplayers just so they can say their fake asses were at NYCC.
>>
>>9631502
yeah, just stay away from photographers who offer ridiculous price for generic work and hopeless promises to be printed on this awful mag called cosplay culture. the photographer is awful as the mag. Dont pay over $20 unless you compare the quality of work to others. and go on groups for photogs who offer free shoots. majority of the free photog are way better than photogs who charge for generic work
>>
going friday with a coworker of mine, taking the bus in from PA. excited to walk around and day drink, look at all the cosplay, probably buy too much crap i don't need.

anyone wanna meet up and smoke at some point/multiple points?
>>
I wanna get better at photography and I only really have hallshots, anyone wanna do a short small shoot with me so I can practice?
>>
>>9631927
any photographers from Cosplay Culture or Generate magazine
>>
>>9631502
Most of them seem to charge in the range of 40+ for mediocre ass photos. You really have to shop around to find anyone decent.

Location wise people usually take photos on the ground floor outside. Always tons of cosplayers out there.
>>
I have only ever gotten my picture taken by normal con goers with their phones and normally throughout the con, I get asked by like pixlr booth to get some free professional shots taken.

I have never paid for photography outside of my wedding or when I was in Bali for my honeymoon.
>>
Gonna be a Team Skull grunt
Any other Pokemon cosplayers going?
>>
Please help

I accidentally activated one of my badges and the child option was checked so it was activated as if it were for a child. How can I revert this?
>>
>>9633507
Why are you asking a chinese witchcraft summoning forum, call the con organizers.
>>
>>9633507
They arent open now. I already sent an email.
>>
Has anyone had their badge come in the mail yet?
>>
>>9631940
generate magazine is not even a real mag, its just this creepy sex predator who uses his own mag to lure victims, he tried to shoot with me and gave me an attitude, he's so gross
>>
Guess talented hacks can leech onto their friends to be guests
>>
Should I even go if I'm only into anime and not at all into comics or Western stuff?
>>
>>9633948
I would skip NYCC. Though there are some anime industry guests, it's tough to get into those panels. AnimeNYC would be a better fit for you.
>>
The photographer tunnel is gone this year along with most of the outdoor section due to the construction, so everyone's going to be crammed inside Javits, unless you go to one of the other buildings for the convention.
>>
>>9633900
this is why NYCC sucks, a panel filled with horrible cosplayer, can they like get real pros instead?
>>
>>9635063
Taking off clothes is a talent nowadays did you not know?
>>
>>9635329
and being fat and ugly is the new hot haha
>>
>>9633900
lol, what even is this.
>>
>>9636221
Two of the cosplayers from Cosplay Melee and a Suicide Girl giving you tips with some friends on how to build armor and props that barely pass for real in most sitches.
>>
>>9634667
holy fuck, really? I spent a good amount of time outside in that area the last few years. this is gonna be a shitshow
>>
>>9633837
Just got my badge yesterday. I am so damn excited.
>>
>>9633955
so whats the deal with animeNYC? is that gonna span the entire Javits like NYCC or just a small portion of it like that special edition con? seems to be getting hyped up quite a lot wherever I look
>>
>>9640887
I think they are attempting to use the whole convention center. NYAF (RIP) used to take up the entire center which was great since the Jav is huge and the con itself was small (compared to NYCC)
>>
Is anyone planning on goin to the Toonami VS Adult Swim party?

It seems like it would be fun for an hour or so.
>>
>>9640887
Unknown right now, but looks like they'll have one or two of the halls of Javits. It was supposed to be in the North building, but with the construction now that's probably not happening now. It's being run by the creator of NYAF and the company behind cons like AwesomeCon
>>
>>9641416
the north building is that area where they have artist alley for NYCC?
>>9641250
>I think they are attempting to use the whole convention center.
I really want this to be the case, its the only thing holding me up from buying tickets to it
>>
>>9641487
Yeah, that connecting hallway between main Javits and the artist alley is where the construction is
>>
>>9641650
wait a second, thats where the construction is too? so both outdoor areas are under construction? this'll be fun
>>
>>9641722
No that's the only place where it is. They're placing a new building there, so eventually that hallway will be gone and instead it'll be a four story building. There's no consturction in the under pass but that's where they had some materials and vehicles stored during weather. Not sure what it'll be like next week
>>
>>9642192
oh thank god, best news I've heard in a while. so it won't be as jam packed as I thought it would be
>>
>>9633900
dhareza is pretty legit. spectra though, what a fame whore.
>>
>>9642833
>dhareza is pretty legit
pretty cool dude too Tbh
>>
>>9642833
Most desperate white knight trying to get that drunk white pussy
>>
>>9633900
literally who?
>>
I heard a pro tip that once you get near the javitz center, ignore all the volunteer fuck heads trying to force you where to go and just head to an entrance, as those workers don't know shit and have no authority to do anything.
>>
Going on Sunday!
Husband is going as Rincewind and I'm going as Tiffany Aching
>>
First time attendee and as a resident it'll be a shame if I missed out seeing the hassle some people have to go through for hotels near the center.

I just need to prepare a backpack and get something to be autographed by a GoT's actress. I guess a battery pack for my cellphone and water bottles would help?
>>
So I never recieved my nycc badge. I bought one, I have the receipts for Thursday and Friday, but I have seen no badge in the mail.
I emailed customer service a while ago and they said it was confirmed on the way. But they said to contact them if I didn't recieve it by the 28th. Well I emailed them again last night and have yet to hear back.

Has anyone gone through this? I'm starting to worry because I'm in a group of like 10 people and they all have their badges, not to mention we're flying out to NYC on Wednesday. Could I just show up with my receipts at will call or something?
>>
>>9645102
You emailed them last night and are mad that you haven't heard back yet on a Saturday morning? Give them 24 hours or at least one business day before you freak out that they're ignoring you. They have a protocol for how to handle this.
>>
>>9645127
I'm not mad just worried.
But yeah I should probably calm down
>>
>>9644741
that isn't even a protip, its just what everybody with a brain does. nobody listens to those retards yelling
>>
>>9645634
I was one of the brainless ones for the past 2 years. Now I will just walk the fuck in however I feel like walking. I'm only concerned that security will stop me or something.
>>
>>9645660
theres literally no security up until you have to check your bags and even then its loose. I've gone 8 years now and they've only once really checked my bags. They just sorta glance at me or just wave me through, its fucking insane. i've skipped huge lines of people because they don't know whats going on.
>>
>>9646500
I guess I'll be doing the same this year, thanks for the red pill

they might have changed it for this year, who knows? I doubt they really give much of a shit to though, that is unless you have a huge prop or something.
never forget the first year they did this
>>
>>9647083
Yeah, that one rogue fuckface who had nothing better to do other than show off to his buddies on how much of a dickhole he was
>>
>>9646500
maybe I spoke to soon because in light of recent events, you might actually see security at this thing now
>>
[spoiler]Girlfriend's Aunt[/spoiler] is an exhibitor and we'll be helping them set up and sit in the booth here and there throughout the weekend.

I'm just fucking happy I don't have to deal with the fucking line to get in jesus last year was a disaster.
>>
>>9647751
I feel ya...
Last year I waited in the line that took about 2.5 hours to get in. I remember I left to grab lunch off site and they made me wait in the line to get back in.

I was so close to just giving up and going home.
>>
Are we doing a crossboard meet up again this year?
>>
>>9647751
>>9648424
what line are we talking about? I've never had to wait for long unless I wanted to be the first one in.
>>
>>9648791
So there is the outdoor line that forms before they open the center. Once the center is open they start to bring the outdoor line inside to form the indoor line that waits until the show floor is open. If you care about being one of the first 5,000 into the convention; you're looking at a 2.5-3 hour line.

Of course you can also just show up whenever after the con is open and usually wait only an hour to get in.
>>
>>9648791
>>9649040
Yeah, I made the mistake of waiting the outside and then the inside line while in cosplay. Shit sucks. No one cares about your cosplay because everyone is pseudo pissed off for standing in one spot for so long
>>
>>9649040
>usually wait only an hour to get in.
what the fuck? I get there like an hour later and just kinda walk in after a maybe 15 minute wait. I'm the same guy who trys to skip that huuuuuge line that snakes around though
>>9649339
unless its something ridiculous I just put on my cosplay in that area where everybody smokes, nobody gives a shit
>>
>>9649363
What area? The little pseudo tunnel aka "Cosplay Alley"?
>>
>>9648537
Not after last years shit show..
>>
>>9649901
What happened last year???
>>
>>9649831
yeah, if thats what you call it. Its that tunnel area where all the people are taking pictures. they had the overwatch photoshoot there last year. I spend most of my time out there if I'm not in a panel or something, I just stay away from the smokers.
>>
>>9649901
Details??
>>
well if anyone was excited about the punisher panel, thats been cancelled.
>>
>>9650510
Jesus Christ, between all the cancels and celebrity no shows.. why even bother going?
>>
Experienced photogs lurking the thread, could you guys give me some suggestions for general shoot locations relatively close to the con center?
I never really go to NYC but I wanna get a couple of shoots done.
>>
>>9650526
they did it because of what happened in vegas, go fucking figure. i cant wait to see if that's what finally makes them beef up security
>>
Why is no one here in cosplay
What the fuck
>>
>>9650876
No one wants to walk through NYC in cosplay and the 'surrounding' hotels are quite a hike away from the con.

The whole "Cosplay is not consent" thing is known by con goers and staff; but totally lost on street randos and city weirdos.
>>
>>9650586
How's security this year? Is it easy or a nightmare?
>>
>>9650526
>>9650586

The website hasn't said anything about more people dropping out. It still shows the same 1 comic guest and 5 entertainment guests that were already not going for several weeks.

Who else dropped out?

Whoops
>>
>>9650876
Because it's Thursday you tard. That's when collectors go.
>>
>>9650876
Thursday is mainly for industry guests and panels. Only reason people got Thursday is because people bitched about wanting an extra day for everybody and it wasn't fair for comic pros, retailers and press to get an extra day.

Fucking little cosplayers felt left out and needed to raise a stink to have an extra day to play dress up
>>
Any animu cosplayers?
>>
>>9651166
yeah I always cut out early on thursday, I made that same mistake 2 years ago.
>>9650876
just wait until tomorrow or saturday for the con to be super crowded and full of cosplayers
>>
I’m going to get there grossly early tomorrow to get a ticket for the westworld event. Did anyone get to go yet?
>>
So how bad was security? Did they have guys with wands or anything?
>>
>>9651413
Same as every year. I got through fairly easy

I actually stumbled into that panel for no reason without realizing the purpose yesterday. They had Semi helpful info like how to make superhero muscles and sai.
They weren't bad, but I left early so I can do fun shit in the rooster teeth place and dragon ball fighter Z booth
>>
>>9651812
Yo ian, idk if your phone ran ou>>9651863
t of battery or what, but jack cant find you.

so they finally added metal detectors

friend did punisher last year and got in with two neon green pistols

they wrapped that shit up in a ziptie which he immediately took off

Dirk Gently panel was amazing. Saw tons of great cosplay today and I can’t wait for tomorrow. Hope everyone gets back safely and had a good time.

>that black canary and harley
wew, hot stuff

>>9652334
holy fuck, the panels got closed so fucking early. used to be hours before the cosplay contest closed

ugh what?

I find this amusing

Is anyone else aware that the changing room was a free peepshow? Like the curtains were transparent...

>>9653962
If your idea of "peep show" is watching silhouettes move around, yeah, sure? You could make out peoples' outlines through the black curtains if you focused, but everything else was well hidden.
>>
>>9653970
is this what passes for good photography these days?
>>
>>9654397

15k in followers can't be wrong

pokemon hunting without a permit
>>
>>9655571
An Ash cosplayer was belligerently drunk at the con and was asked to leave. He didn't want to and tried to push a cop. Needless to say the cops didn't like it.
>>
>>9655132
this was the black canary I was talking about
wew
>>
>>9655132
>>9655604
She's pretty but it's a shame that the costume is so inaccurate.
