With New York Comic Con (NYCC) 2021 in the books it’s time to post one of my favorite articles – the cosplay photo gallery.
Each year, with the exception of 2020, the attendees of NYCC go all out with their cosplay outfits, from unique and exceptional designs to highly detailed and elaborate costumes and I think fans being cooped up for 18 months were especially more eager to showcase their creations. NYCC even hosts a Championship of Cosplay competition which tends to draw serious cosplayers who have perfected their costumes to the finest detail in order to win status and a cash prize.
If you are ever walking the show floor with me you know that I have absolutely no problem stopping mid-conversation even if I am on my way somewhere to ask someone in an interesting costume to snap a photo. Of course these photos are by no means an expansive list of the best cosplay at the convention as of course with so many people walking around I’m of course bound to miss some amazing costumes but here are some of the amazing costumes I saw while running around throughout the weekend. Really though credit goes to all the amazing people who put hours of time and dedication to make their costumes stand out so if you are a cosplayer and find yourself in this gallery please reach out and we will certainly update to include a proper credit.
