Anime NYC 2023 Takes Over The PiercingMetal Instagram

It was back in late November last year that the PiercingMetal High Command was once again in attendance at the rapidly expanding Anime NYC convention at the Javits Center. I’ve been going to this event since its debut in 2017 and the 2023 event would mark my sixth annual attendance as a part of the Geek Media. Generally speaking, I begin running the Instagram images straight away but the website and life got super busy around that time and it prevented me from serving up all of the awesome cosplayers and the other sights that I encountered along the way. I was timely with the Reels and other short form videos because those needed to go live as they happened and any of the day to day convention and promotional posts can be found by clicking HERE as that will open up a new browser tag with the content that’s been dedicated to the 2023 convention. Now without any further adieu, here begins the Instagram Takeover by Anime NYC 2023. I am pretty sure that you will like what you see because I have a couple of hundred images to bring to your attention.

Hey there my friends, its once again time to talk a little bit about some website social media and to share how happy I am when we hit a new plateau on it. Now over the years I’ve mentioned that PiercingMetal has been on the Instagram platform since 2012 and I have been posting on it with an almost daily routine. Yesterday, the PiercingMetalNYC profile published the 11,000th photo and based on how much of a backlog I have its very likely I will be back soon to talk about the 12K one. While I’ve been finishing up all of my New York Comic Con images that I got sidelined from completing based on life, I paused them to let the 11K photograph be something pretty awesome in its own right. Back in October of 2023, I got to enjoy an amazing concert by Yoshiki and after the show was one of his many guests at a small gathering. To make it even better, I was able to get a quick photograph with him and tell him just how much the show moved me right to his face. If you’re someone who is saying “Who is Yoshiki”, please head to YouTube and enjoy some of his amazing work and then come back to thank me later. Meeting such a musician and having a few moments of chat time just had to be the visual for the 11,000th Instagram and I think you’d agree with me on that.

According to the history books, the PiercingMetal High Command was going to be attending the famed New York Comic Con at the Javits Center for the thirteenth time and would once again be doing so as a member of the media. As a pretty close to lifelong fan of comic books and all things geek, I knew going in that I would have my hands full and be using a wide gamut of social media platforms to bring you readers into the action. One of the main places to focus in on the fun would be the Official Instagram and the plan would be for numerous photographs and Reels which is the platforms short video feed. The full editorial narratives will be assembled post-convention and across all of the work done I will be pushing the now three-year old Ken Pierce Media branding. My plan remains the same as in the previous year in terms of doing narratives, YouTube clips, these Instagram images and TikToks. Like-minded geeks can keep pace with the website articles by clicking HERE and the first of our Instagram images is linked below. Most of them will be exclusive to our Instagram with the occasional making an appearance in our four-day coverage of the convention.

For the twelfth straight year, PiercingMetal was attending the famed New York Comic Con as a member of the media and with that comes a whole lot of photos so I am going to once again use the site as a redirector to our Official Instagram. We love wandering the aisles and meeting the talented artists and cosplayers along with some cool exhibitors.

Hello my Friends!!!! I am here once more to do that announcement stuff for one of our most used social media accounts which is The Official Instagram for PiercingMetal which I have now been using for ten full years. The actual anniversary date was on 9/15/2022 but I didn’t have a photo posted for the day and instead decided to use one from today since it was also “Batman Day”. We paid a visit to our friends over at Galaxy Comics and did some photos and video stuff to help raise awareness and I was glad since I did need a photo to go along with any Instagram discussion.
