Only at New York Comic Con (NYCC) can a journalist have their 15 minutes of fame. Every year, thousands of cosplayers are photographed by fans and the press. Each media outlet has their own version of a top or best cosplay/costumes list. This year we got our moment in the sun.
Anita and I, joined by guest correspondent, Digi Kolobong, were on our way to the Rooster Teeth booth to interview Barbara Dunkelman & Miles Luna from RWBY. As we left the Press Room, we were approached by a woman from The Village Voice. She was impressed by Anita and Digi’s costumes and asked if they’d liked to be photographed. Ecstatic-we seized the opportunity!
Anita cosplayed as Shiro, from Voltron: Legendary Defender(2016) and Digi cosplayed as Weiss Schnee, from RWBY (which was fitting for our interview.) The photographer, C.S. Muncy, loved my tinted rainbow glasses. He asked if I wanted to be photographed as well. I was surprised given the simplicity of my costume. I was cosplaying as Radio Times Reporter, Jilian Holtzman, from Ghostbusters (2016). (I thought it would be funny to play up the journalism pun.)
New York Comic Con 2016 has been a magical experience for SBR!
