The great gathering of genre fans in the city that never sleeps is officially over. New York Comic-Con has closed its doors after a weekend of surprise comic book cameos,never-before-seen TV premieres and geeky celebrations. But the pictures of the cosplay at NYCC will live on forever, because the East Coast convention goers gave great costume this year. Here’s a collection of a few of our favorite costumes, should you dare to be inspired this Halloween season.
“Stranger Things’ ”Winona Ryder’s character Joyce Byers and son cosplay.
The exceedingly rare, “Hamilton” video game crossover cosplay.
Jessica Jones in the scarcely cosplayed version of her (now retired) alter superhero character Jewel, Luke Cage in Power Man attire, and Marvel’s brand new Iron Man character Riri Williams. Could this possibly be a little bit of fan projecting on the future of the child from Jones and Cage’s comic book coupling? Fingers crossed.
Hodor, holding the door, from the “Game of Thrones” episode “The Door.”
Yellow Diamond from “Steven Universe.”
Image Comics’ “Saga” characters take a family photo.
X-Men’s shapeshifting Mystique in mid-shift.
Jack Nicholson’s Joker henchmen from the 1989 “Batman” movie. So retro.
The Eye of Sauron and the ring. Two great tastes that taste great together.
“Black Panther’s” comic book author Ta-Nehisi Coates and comic book character Power Man with the classic tiara.
