I heard a little voice screaming “Mommy! Mommy! Look, it’s Spiderman.”
As I stood by waiting for my Spiderman boyfriend to be finished with his photoshoot at this year's New York Comic Convention, next to me was a small kid dressed up as Ironman freaking out about seeing a superhero in person. I knelt down and told the Mini-Ironman that I knew Spiderman personally and if he could
My friend mentioned to me that it was nice to see parents who would pay the money for their kids to come dressed up to enjoy Comicon, as it could be very crowded and stressful but ultimately a great time.
As I walked through the NYCC, I thought it was great to see families cosplaying together. So I went on my way to take some pictures of these families and it was great to see each kid laugh as I played along with their cosplay. Some even posed when I took their pic.
I stumbled upon many dressed as Harley Quinn, but this one was definitely the cutest!
Honestly, the best part of the convention was when their faces lit up when I asked just to take their picture. I even took a picture with Carrie Fischer (Princess Leia) and her dog so that should say something.
I really hope to see more parents and their kids at the next NYCC. It's awesome seeing parents and kids enjoy the same thing. I guess that's the power of being a fan of pop culture. You’re never too young or too old to love comics, graphic novels, toys, anime, manga, video games,
Fun Fact: I wore a matching hot dog costume with my younger sibling and needless to say at the NYCC, you can be anything you want to be!
