New York Comic Con – Cosplay Celebration

Posted on November 18th, by Micah Moore in Beat Down Boogie, conventions, live events.

I finally made it to NYCC, my first big industry con. I met Freddie W of Rocketjump. I ran into a lot of popular cosplayers at nightclubs. I got to see some cool costumes and meet some nice people. Big thanks to Hashtag Comics and Elysiam Entertainment for the opportunity to attend NYCC. Also a shoutout to John and Sonicboombox for throwing some great nightclub events.

MomoCon 2014 Cosplay Video
