I’ve known about this event for a couple of months already but never took a moment to make sure that it was on our readers radar. With our having covered the last few years of the NY Comic Con, I wondered how many fans were thinking about hitting this event. Take a look at a great way to spend your Summer on June 28th, 29th, and 30th…..
Many readers of the Official PiercingMetal Blog are aware that we cover some entertainment related conventions like the Comic Con, Toy Fair and even Book Expo America but even they must be scratching their heads at my inclusion of the 1st Annual Hot Sauce Expo. Generally speaking, the food aspect of this particular event would find me posting this on my PiercingKen.com site but with a number of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock greats all having a hot sauce of their own found me putting the story here for the PiercingMetal fan base. Read on.
Attention all slingers of the six and four string weapons of music, it is that time of the season once more as the Brooklyn Springtime Guitar Show makes its return for 2013 at the beautiful Brooklyn Bowl. I’ve brought this fun event to your attention in the past and wanted to let you all know that both DJ Uncle Mike and Lisa Sharken will be at the ready to bring you the best event possible. We are now at t-minus two weeks and as you see on the poster will happen on April 7th from 11am to 5pm.
For the past couple of years, I’ve had the honor of attending Toy Fair as a press representative and share all of the wonderful findings with the readers of the PiercingMetal Blog. It’s an amazing event for sure and just about a week ago they have announced who the nominees of the TOTY for 2013 will be. TOTY stands for “Toy Of The Year” and believe me there is a lot of cool stuff up for the big honors for the coming award. So why are we bringing this up you might ask, well the answer is simple. From November 19th until January 15th, the general public can vote for what they think was the Toy Of The Year and potentially win prizes as well. Follow the link below to cast your vote.

I really hope the Hex Bugs do good and the Lego Ninjago since that is really rather cool and don’t even get me started on how awesome Skylanders Giants is…. Of course only one item can win in the category I am speaking of so make your decision with great care. I’ll be doing the same later on today, after I review all the offerings one more time. Enjoy.

Hey my fandom fiends welcome back to our fourth and final chapter of the Day Two adventuring at the 2012 NY Comic Con. I’ve been having a blast so far and will keep my summaries quick and to the point so you can appreciate all the images a little easier. Let’s get down to business.
Continuing along with my findings during my “Day Two” wanderings at Comic Con, please enjoy the vast colors and creativity or the incredible Cosplayers and some of the awesomely talented individuals who were working the various booths.
Continuing along with the observations at NY Comic Con 2012, I pick up where I just left off in my first installment from the Day Two portion of the massive event. I felt like keeping up with the mostly Cosplay display for awhile and also would head down to the Artist Alley for a little while. Let’s begin with this killer Nick Fury. After the shot I thanked him for his part in the recent NYC conflict.
I have to admit that I was raring to go for the second day session of NY Comic Con and perhaps it was partially based on the dose of Music Scribe energy that was infused into me by seeing two amazing KISS appearances and the fact that the first day is not a super long one anyway. Yet here I was heading down to the Javits and talking to those around me as we plotted and planned for the adventure. My plan would be for some serious exploration today and get a lot out of the way since the Saturday session is always mayhem, and as I wandered closer, I met a charming Elektra Cosplayer. Nice girl who did a fine job on her outfit and even had a pair of Sai with her. My other plan was to get a lot of Instagram shots today and if I did not mention I was doing this in yesterdays summation I apologize. Let’s get rocking.
Welcome to our third and final chapter from the Day One NY Comic Con wanderings. It was a very productive day and we met a lot of cool people and saw some awesome things. I wanted to keep the images to fifty per post but I ran out before we hit that with this chapter but don’t worry I still have a three day span coming up. Let’s begin the visuals with this awesome Darth Vader holiday ornament. Yeah I want this. It’s too awesome.
Welcome back my fine comic book loving friends. Continuing on with our several chapters to go infiltration of the 2012 NY Comic Con, I pick up where chapter one left off with the next fifty images of the observations from the first day. Today’s part of the Con actually only started at 3pm and would run until 9pm which is the latest ever that I have found this event running. As previously mentioned this was Press, Professionals and 4 Day Pass Holders Day.
