    NYCC: It’s a Sherlockian Jedi Vamp World


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     NYCC veteran JDAlady is back again this year at the increasingly popular sold out convention: 'This year, the vendors are catering to steampunk and Doctor Who more than I've ever seen before.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    When Tiffany Rae Knight wanders the halls of New York Comic Con, a flowing bustle is sure to follow in Sherlock style. Among the Westeros mixture of Winterfell and Jaqen H'ghar, a Daenerys dragon family had a stroller in hand for those long panel lines. Obi Wan Kenobi could also be found …to guide our lost Jedi when the WiFi fails.


    Vendors are great support crew as they provide leathered goods, weaponry and superhero supplies. Even custom made fangs are available for the vampire kind. Father Sebastiaan is the resident Fangsmith of this ComicCon. Crimson Chain Leatherworks had an impressive selection of armor and kilts.


    The supervillains Mystique and Sabretooth were a great pair that added to the Marvel mix, where the man called Nova also displayed his uniform. The popular multiplayer video game, League of Legends brought Pantakill and Gangplank to this arena of multicosplayers.
