“Why is everyone in costume today?” A cab driver asked us on our way to the Jacob K. Javits Center Saturday afternoon. He must be new to the city, because for the last six years, October has meant one thing to a section of people in New York City: Comic-Con. It’s an event we look forward to mostly because of cosplayers who spend all year crafting incredibly detailed costumes. Last year, we shared with you 10 Great Cosplay Moments from the 2015 convention and this year we are sharing 10 more. If you missed out on Comic-Con, here are some photos to inspire you to make next year’s convention and perhaps to make some cosplay of your own.
10. Alexander Hamilton
On the first day we arrived at the convention, we saw this young lady dressed as Alexander Hamilton. The woman accompanying her (her mother, perhaps) added to the cosplay by dressing as one of the Schyler sister and even carrying a plush Aaron Burr around. Thankfully, no one challenged her to a duel.
