Cosplay has become a massive cultural phenomenon in the past decades, giving rise to a slew of events and conventions dedicated solely to costume play. Every year, millions of fans gather wearing costumes of their favorite characters from anime and television series, video games, comic books, and movies. Comic Con is one such event, having started off as a comic book convention and today celebrating all forms of media and entertainment in pop culture, especially cosplay. Check out the best of the best cosplayers from this year’s Comic Con New York.

Bored Panda also got in touch with Nick Roman, one of the participants of Comic Con New York. Nick is a content creator for the YouTube reviews channel RegularCars as well as the man behind his personal video project Limited Time Roman. His fascination for cosplay is what brought him to Comic Con this year (where, by the way, Nick was sporting a suit and a Sony Pictures t-shirt as his cosplay).

Nick was also kind enough to provide us with his photos featured in this article.

Nick’s first experience with Comic Con was back in 2014 (also in New York) when he was working as a writer for Rickey.org. “I had press obligations at the time and so I ended up spending much of my day in the interview area, speaking with casts from various programs and typing up articles. So I didn't get to wander the convention floor as much as I might have liked. But I loved that experience, and it's what ignited my fandom for comic conventions.”

According to Nick, this year’s Comic Con New York was far more chaotic than most due to the bigger attendance, but still very exciting. “It feels like more of a community when people turn out in big numbers, even if it can get cramped. Then again, I'm typically there to just look at cool cosplay and make videos.”

“I found the Savitar outfit from The Flash Season 3 particularly impressive, along with the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask cosplay.” continued Nick. “There were also some clever outfits like the Rick Roll YouTube costume and Adam Savage's No Face outfit.” All of these cosplays are featured in this article.
