The 13 Most Entertaining Cosplays From New York Comic Con 2015

Another comic con has come and gone! Comic and entertainment lovers from all over flocked to the Big Apple this weekend for New York Comic Con. While panels with celebrities and comic geniuses discussing their livelihoods are super cool (and definitely something we suggest doing at least once in your life), everyone knows that it’s not comic con unless there is some cosplay. And we saw A LOT of cosplayers! We picked our very favorite cosplays from the weekend to share with you.


Consuela – Family Guy

No, you’re not looking at a picture of a young Jack Nicholson, that’s cosplayer Anthony Misiano! You can check out more of his amazing Joker looks at Harley’s Joker.

Princesses & Their Villains (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty)

These two cosplayers couldn’t decide if they wanted to be villains or princesses – so they went as both! Snow White/Evil Queen is Jessica Mascetti-Ellis and Aurora/Maleficent is Sophy Holland.
