New York Comic Con 2021 Cosplay Gallery

After last year’s online celebrations, New York Comic Con is back in person. Although pandemic restrictions require everyone who enters the indoor area to be vaccinated and masked, attendees are more eager than ever to brave the crowd and get back to the convention room. And after a year of absence, nobody is looking forward to returning to the con scene as a cosplayer. Even with mask restrictions, avid cosplayers have found ways to incorporate them into their costumes.

The pandemic had different effects on the cosplayers we spoke to. As it is a hobby to be shared and seen, some have found the lack of conventions and meetings to be a drag on their inspiration, while others have used the free time to reflect on their hobby and work on their craft.

But everyone agrees on one point: The New York Comic Con is here and everyone is really looking forward to dressing up as their favorite characters. For many cosplayers, NYCC is the something that got her into cosplay – seeing people in incredibly creative costumes, paying homage to their favorite characters, and having fun. A year apart made the heart beat faster, but now they’re back and ready to show off their costumes – be they handmade, purchased, procured, or some other combination – and celebrate the characters they love.

Katie – Steampunk Adora from She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

“Adora is a queer icon. I love her. On the show, the place she comes from is very industrial and rough and I wanted to incorporate that steampunky-esque world into her costume so I redesigned it to fit that way. I did most of it through quarantine. The sword is made of wood. It’s carved. [The costume] lasted about three months. The pandemic definitely made me want to cosplay for myself rather than others. I do this for fun and to be proud of my costumes. “

Ashley Davis – Bowsette from Nintendo

“The pandemic made me better with cosplay anything. Because before I was like Oh, I have to cosplay someone my color or my size. But no – fuck it now: I cosplay whoever I want! “

Drax & Kris – Carnage Punk and Venom Punk

Her father: “Kris has been doing this for about five years, since he was about three years old. And then Drax for three years. We’ve been coming to Comic Con for a while and just said Hey let’s get dressed! Let’s put on some costumes and work from there. Each of the masks lasted about three to four months. The hardest part is layering the paint. Every time you apply a layer you have to let it dry and that takes a week. “

June – Wave of Marvel Comics

“I’m disguised as a Wave from Marvel – Filipino representation! This is actually my first Marvel cosplay. I’ve been cosplaying for about nine years and, strangely enough, I’ve never made a Marvel hero. I’ve always done anime. I am such a weeb. I got into cosplay because of Pokémon. My very first cosplay was a slowpoke. So it started and then it just started.

I sewed all of this costume. And then I built everything. The wings were last night. The hardest part was making the spandex suit. I do a lot of foam armor, that wasn’t a problem for me. That’s probably why I avoided superheroes – because it’s more of a spandex outfit. ”

Able Tong – A Disney carousel from Disney parks

“It took the hat a whole summer. It took a lot of putting together. My friend called it “paper technology”. I drew the rides. I designed it. And the frames and the flags. The characters are a mix of the ones I like and whose colors would stand out. I designed it specifically so I could remove characters and insert new ones if I ever wanted to. The only thing I didn’t do was the murals in it, but I did everything else myself. I don’t even consider myself a full-fledged cosplayer, because it’s really just the hat! “

Philip Odango – Spike mirror by Cowboy Bebop

“The hardest thing is to keep your collar up! I just got a piece of thread that holds together. I sewed the entire costume from top to bottom. One of the challenges was to find a material to match the color – this is a stretch material, this is a non-stretchable material. However, in order to get the same shine and color, one had to shop in several stores and try to find the right material.

I’ve been cosplaying since 2003. I started with Edward scissoring out pizza boxes with my fingers and a garbage bag for my body. Since then I’ve made over 60 costumes. I was a judge at international congresses. I work with several business partners and sponsors. I’ve been teaching classes. I was able to contribute to my community by creating masks for our frontline workers and working with organizations that distribute them. “

Betty & Jenna – Riddler and The Batman Who Laughs from DC Comics

Jenna: “With the Baby Yodas we make everyone smile! These [Robin ones] Took a little over a month because we had to make heads and cut their mouths open. “

Betty: “The Riddler is actually from an older jacket of mine.”

Kat, Angie and Nelson – Maki Zenin and Nobara Kugisaki and Itadori Yuji from Jujutsu Kaisen

Kat: “I’m from Maki Jujutsu Kaisen. I chose her because I love her character. It has two different weapons and I just wanted to make it! I decorated the whole thing over a week. “

Angie: “I’m from Nobara Kugisaki Jujutsu Kaisen. I chose her because she’s a badass too. I think she’s one of the better-written female anime characters out there. We’re friends, so we decided to cosplay everyone together! “

Nelson: “I’m Itadori Yuji… but at the same time Sakuna. When he turns like halfway. Then all the tattoos come out. I think it’s really cool to cosplay half and half. “

Noni – Isabelle from Animal Crossing

“I usually love doing my cosplays, but I just didn’t have the time. Much of that was AliExpress and Amazon. I’ve made a princess mononoke costume in the past, and I actually used clay and paper mache to make the mask. I really want to get back to that. “

Steven – Steve from Blues Clues

“It may sound selfish, but I do it because people are reacting. I walk up to them and see the light in their eyes because they think about their childhood. It makes me happy to make other people happy. That’s why I’ve been doing this for five years. I keep trying to update it. I started with Blue, then I added the Handy Dandy notebook. I have magenta. I got mail. I have paw prints from sticky notes.

Find that Shirt was the hardest part. It’s a real rugby shirt. You get green shirts but they are not the right colors. I just got lucky one day and found the perfect shirt. It cost a lot of money and is really difficult, but it’s too perfect. “

Tina and Emily – Crowley and Aziraphale from Good Omens

Tina: “These are pieces that I had in my closet or bought separately. The only thing I did was get the tattoo on my chest. The hat was the hardest to find. I wanted a flat, wide brim to make it look kind of fun. And I didn’t just want a standard fedora. I wanted a beautiful, feminine one! “

Emilie: “It is more difficult to find things that are color and optically coordinated than you think. You see things all the time, but when you actually look for it, it’s like you can’t find it. “

Danni – Hawkgirl from DC Comics

“I like winged characters! She is my favorite DC character. The wings are a pulley system and there are around 4,000 springs on them. It took me about 25 hours. I finished this costume last night. The pandemic got me more into cosplay because I had nothing to do and rushed to learn how to make things by hand. “

Sophia – Elenka from Shining Nikki

“This is Elenka from Shiny Nikki. I’ve seen the art for it and I was like uh, I have to do that! I’ve been working on it many hours a day for two and a half months. [Cosplaying] is such a great use of arts and crafts and creativity. This is my first cosplay that I’ve done in over two years. “

Sophia’s Instagram

Lexis – Shirley the fortune teller from Courage the Feigling Dog

“The hardest part was figuring out what her makeup would look like because she’s a dog. I wanted to have a more modern attitude instead of like a dog. “

Rachelle – Cruella from Cruella

“I’m Cruella in the 10 seconds she’s on top of the car. It was amazing and fascinating and dramatic and I loved it … so I decided to do it. I started in July and finished last night! Apart from this [front] Rock, everything else is handmade. I started sewing [the back] and then the time ran out and just hot glued. This is my first very big build, the first I’ve ever really done. “

Jack and Van Brown – Tanjiro and Nezuko from Demon Slayer

Jack: “It’s a great time, dad and son, that we spend together! This box is actually meant for me to carry it and roll it around. We wanted to do Anime Japan, and it’s designed to dissolve so you can actually take it on a plane. We made the entire box and tricked it for New York Comic Con by adding the lights. “

Delivery trucks: “[The hardest part was] probably i’m getting the measurements from something i would fit in. I’m average height – not a super small person. Definitely figuring out something light enough but strong enough to carry me on my back. And also small enough, but I could still fit. “

Jack’s Instagram

Jason Hettel – Steampunk Batman from DC Comics

“I’m steampunk Batman. This is actually version two. I actually did a version about two years ago and won New York Comic Con, third place on Best Show. After that, I decided to make a brand new one. I chose Batman because I love Batman. I chose steampunk because I love old things. “

Danielle – Furby from … real life

“I just love Furbies! It’s a puppet so the hardest part was making it blink and all. I like making puppets – I was an animation student and I made films with puppets. I just wanted to do a big old Furby. “

Danielle’s Instagram

Ben – Mayor McCheese of McDonalds

“I picked Mayor McCheese because it’s funny. Usually when I cosplay it’s because I dress up as things that make me laugh. In the past I have dressed up as Man-Ray from Spongebob and Captain Crunch. The hardest part was figuring out how to handle the weight and make it so that I wouldn’t die walking around. “

The Rivera Family – Doc Ock, Kraven the Hunter, and Spider-Gwen from Marvel

Paola Rivera: “I have [the tentacles] on a wooden board, basically in the backpack. I just pray to god they don’t fall. I used hot glue. This year [my daughter] picked a few of them! We dress up every four days. She chose Batgirl and Spider-Gwen. These are your favorites. So we made our cosplays about it. “
