Anime NYC 2022 Takes Over The PiercingMetal Instagram

anime nyc, anime nyc logo

The PiercingMetal website was once again in attendance at the awesome Anime NYC Convention that was being held at the Javits Center. While a score of photos and narrative will be posted on the website, one of the things we enjoy most about conventions is upping the content on our Official Instagram. The interested can start their journey with the image below. Please be sure to “Follow” and like as many photos as possible for good engagement.

I hope everyone who sees these photos enjoys them and thanks to all the cosplayers and vendors and artists who stopped for a moment so I could snap them. The first few are up and I am already contending with all the spammers who post comments like “DM us on @worthless_profile”. Fellow creatives should delete this without regard because they are only looking to get the attention that your photo would usually get you. Trust me on this.

The Anime NYC convention returns to the Javits Center for its 5th Annual celebration and I am happy to share the news that I will once again be in attendance making some show notes and taking lots and lots of photos. I’ve pointed out that I am not the biggest Anime study out there but I do love a lot of the characters and creations and think that its amazing that so many people unite in one place to support such an event. I think they had 45K attendees in 2021 and this year they are expecting more. A few highlights and things to be aware of can be found via THIS LINK so know before you go. Of course if you don’t have a ticket you are out of luck because this event is now completely sold out.
