NYCC: Costume Photo Gallery
Everybody wants to see the photo galleries from the bigger comic and anime conventions, and everybody always goes straight for the people in costumes. This gallery has the cosplayers, booth models, and cool looking people that Toon Zone News managed to photograph at the New York Comic-Con.
