“Saturday’s event was a sellout, which meant tens of thousands of people were jammed into the convention center. While elbowing my way through the food court I overheard a Javits employee remark attendance had reached close to a million people. It sure felt that way.
The amount of people in attendance was overwhelming, to say the least. But it was nice knowing the comic book and anime mediums are as popular as they are. I just hope next year organizers figure out a better way to simultaneously house both conventions.
One of the most fun aspects of going to any convention is the sightseeing while looking for the most inventive, creative and daring costume(s). Not to be disappointed, there were plenty of attendees dressed as such. I spotted multiple Zatannas, Deadpools and civilian-attire Wolverines. There were also several fans decked out in full Na’vi garb, blue body paint and all, and more than one Chun-Li roaming the showrooms. There was even a guy walking around in just a bath towel and carrying a stick of Old Spice deodorant. Talk about guts.”
