New York Comic Con 2013: Saturday's Cosplay Portraits


There are few things the mainstream press likes more about comic book conventions than the cosplayers, so it's perhaps unsurprising that contributing photographer C.S. Muncy is doing just that--taking photos, or in his case high-quality portraits--of cosplayers for the Village Voice, among others.

You can check out his thoughts on how to get around as a journalist at a comic book convention here, and check out yesterday's cosplay photos from New York Comic Con here.

For them, as for us, Muncy takes cosplayers aside and does an impromptu shoot with them–last year at our booth, against the backdrop of a page from Rachel Rising. This year, he’s on his own as doesn’t have a booth presence, so he’s getting people out in the wild a bit more.

As ever, we don’t usually get names when we take the photos but we try to make sure you know where it will end up–so if one of these is you, feel free to chime in! Apologies, meanwhile, if I don’t know who you are or if I misidentify you. I’ll correct anything that’s called to my attention.

All these photos are copyright C.S. Muncy, used with permission.

And, yes, that's Neil deGrasse Tyson at right, not somebody cosplaying as Neil deGrasse Tyson.


This Lomi Plo was causing quite a stir, and caught our photographer's eye, as well; we got an action shot...


...a portrait...


...and a shot at rest.

I hear he's the best there is at what he does.
