Our buddies over at Geeks OUT have just launched a massive Kickstarter campaign to create Flame Con, New York City’s first LGBTQ comic convention! But it’s not just comics, because their release describes the event as “a one-day comics, arts, and entertainment expo showcasing dozens of creators and celebrities from all corners of LGBTQ geek fandom, including comics, videogames, film, and television.”

Since 2010, Geeks OUT has been hosting events for the LGBTQ geek community and establishing queer-positive spaces for fans at comic conventions. (I volunteer at their New York Comic Con booth every year!) But for 2015, they want to invite everyone to Flame Con!

For the grand finale of my New York Comic Con 2014 cosplay photos (I told you there were a lot!), I’ve saved the videogame ones. Here you’ll find a super cute Fox McCloud, a pair of super gay Ice Climbers, a fabulous Yuna, a slightly creepy Wii Fit Trainer, and the most adorable PaRappa!

Oh, and you might also spot me in there, too, as I dressed up for Saturday when I worked the booth for Geeks OUT! ;-)

Here are the rest of the “other” photos, including all the anime, cartoons, movies, TV shows and the plain weird like the boy walking around in bikini briefs with a basket of buns looking for an anaconda (get it?). The crossplay Sailor Moon gang you see above was seriously impressive. I was also delighted to see such random cosplay as the League of their Own player and one of the Guilty Remnant!

Well, in the spirit of Halloween, I’m wearing part of my costume from this year’s party, and I also managed to put down Fantasy Life for a little while to play some Silent Hill. ‘Tis the season, after all! This leads me to ponder whether it’s better to play the classic version of a game or an HD remake… Which is the best experience to have? Make the jump to watch this week’s episode then add your own thoughts!

Dear Diary,

Well, it was slightly easygoing this week, since we’re leading up to Halloween. I’ve pretty much decided that I’m not going to bother with the big hoo-ha with Jack and everyone dressing up and stealing candy. I’m just not in the mood…

But I have decided on a costume! Though you’ll have to wait until next week to see what it is. Read on for this week’s fun!

The third gallery of cosplay photos from New York Comic Con 2014 is the first part of the “other” category. These are the costumes based on anything that’s not comics or videogames. So movies, TV, anime, cartoons, and miscellaneous. This time around there’s an extremely hot character from the anime Free!, a Slave Leia facing off against a Xenomorph, a bunch of guys literally just walking around in their underwear (seriously, they weren’t even trying to pretend it was a costume!) and… um, McThor? I guess? I’m not even sure, but it was really clever and super well-done. Check out the gallery and see!

Here is the second of the five cosplay galleries from New York Comic Con 2014. This is the other half of the comic-book costumes I snapped. My favorites in this batch are the Age Of X X-Men group leading off this post above, classic Green Arrow, a sweet Jubilee, an Iceman who must have caught a chill, and the most amazeballs Tintin I’ve ever seen. Seriously, he was perfect. Check the gallery after the jump and see if you agree. Perfect!
