It’s been about two weeks since we last offered the readership an update on the October scheduled New York Comic Con for 2021. If you missed that notice please click HERE to be up to speed. Now I have returned to share an update to the update based on the continuing changing factors of just about everything in New York City. Read on and know that I will return with some editorial at the close.
The Announcement: Check out these important updates to our health and safety guidelines for NYCC 2021. As always, thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate the safe return of NYCC. We strongly encourage you to read through our guidelines at NYCC21.com/Safety and bookmark that page for future updates.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As another reminder, when they announced that the NYCC would indeed be taking place, they lined out that it would be at a very limited capacity attendance of patrons and the professional side of the fence. That means less Cosplayers, Artists, Creative Sorts and Media representatives like ourselves. I’ve already pointed out that based on the limitations that it was highly unlikely that I would be in attendance but should a pass turn up I will be on point to do my thing as my practice has been for the past ten years. The restrictions are changing rapidly and they are impacting events like this one. Since our last update, the New York International Auto Show has been cancelled along with a number of other events that we attend for “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken”. I’ve braved a few happenings since that last notice but nothing that finds tens of thousands of people around me. So far the events I’ve attended found me needing to show proof of being vaccinated which I am so that doesn’t bother me at all. Despite this you will need to also sport a protective mask during the entire time at Javits. Are you planning on attending New York Comic Con? What are your thoughts on this latest update to the guidelines. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. Remember to be safe out there and wear a mask and get vaccinated. I know that I’ve already said this to you but I will repeat myself again and again because I’d like to be able to do more things and not worry about my health by doing them. Once more if you’ve ever wanted to visit NYCC and haven’t, the video gallery below is a solid example of the kind of fun that’s too be found within its walls under “normal” circumstances.
