Just last month, we put together a gallery of the 20 craziest costumes on display at the PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) Prime 2012 convention in Seattle, Washington, where everything from an unemployed Storm Trooper to a gender-bending Princess Peach could be found wandering the grounds. Now we're switching gears to the opposite side of the continent to bring you another collection of photos, this time from New York Comic-Con 2012, the largest pop culture event on the East Coast.
Like PAX Prime, the Comic-Con show in New York is place where it's perfectly acceptable (and even preferable) to dress up in full garb as your favorite character from a variety of entertainment forms, be it a graphic novel, comic book, video game, television series, or whatever. If you've never been to a cosplay (costume play) convention, put it on your bucket list and thank us later. In the meantime, check out the photos from New York Comic-Con 2012 and thank us now.
