WinterCon Returns To NYC This Weekend @ Resorts World Casino

wintercon logo

Readers of this website have known for years how much we love the convention scene and can regularly be found at the New York Comic Con, Anime NYC and Big Apple Comic Con. This weekend, one of the other events that I like to hit will be happening at the Resorts World Casino – The Winter Con.

So What’s WinterCon??? According to their own promotional efforts its “The LARGEST Sci-Fi convention in the NY area! Held annually at Resorts World NYC. Wintercon is a large expo that hosts celebrities, creators, fans and vendors from TV, movies, books, cosplay, comics, gaming, collectibles, anime and so much more!”

Where Is It? The Convention will be held at the Resorts World Casino and the location is tagged in our listings so click HERE for the exact geography.

Who Should I See? Oh come on now, you should see as many people as you can fit into the time that you are attending the event. If you go once you have to wisely use the time but if you go all weekend you will get your fill. I’ll suggest you meet two of our talented friends who will be there like the awesomely talented Barbie Chula and the sensational Miss Cheng. Here are a couple of images from the Official PiercingMetal Instagram that originate from the Anime NYC convention since that was when I saw them last. If you meet either of them you can for sure tell them that you came to see them at my suggestion and that I hope they are well.

Will You Be In Attendance: Sadly I CANNOT attend this year based on my real work schedule. I’m on point at one of the Broadway Theatres and the hours conflict with my having any kind of time to get to Queens and back with any visuals or narrative.

Enjoy

Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 2

Greetings Geeks!!!! Welcome back to more of the wandering in the aisles of the Resorts World Casino expo floor where the 2019 WinterCon was taking over like gangbusters. I’m continuing from where I left off in Chapter 1 so be sure to visit that installment first in the event you are just joining us. This chapter has a LOT of the cosplayers that we met and I will not be naming all of them since you should know that stuff by now if you are reading this website. I will however begin with some famous names in Japanese Pop Culture with Tsugutoshi Komada and Bin Furuya. Komada played Jet Jaguar in the “Godzilla Vs. Megalon” film and my hope is that this character somehow returns in the upcoming “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” film that opens next summer. Then there is Bin Furuya who portrayed Ultraman. Arigato for the photos gentlemen.

Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 1

Greetings my fellow Geeks, it’s time once again to offer up the findings at the recently held WinterCon which took over one of the expo floors at the massive Resorts World Casino in Queens. This year marks my third straight year of attending as a member of the accredited press and amounts to my final convention being covered for this side of my creative fence. Let’s start exploring the visuals and see if we chance upon any old friends.

These fun-loving cosplayers were my first “fans” of the day and so they are thusly honored. For the convention I’d be once again using my trusty “convention camera” which is my handy dandy Samsung and my mobile phone, the Galaxy Note 8 since I want to load a lot of slightly different visuals up to our Instagram. I’ll have that linked in my closing so don’t worry about it right now.

Exploring WinterCon 2017 @ Resorts World Casino (Part 3)

wintercon 2017

Welcome back once more my friends, you have safely arrived at the third and final chapter of our coverage of the 2017 “WinterCon” which takes place over at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, NY. It’s a cool place and right next to the Aquaduct Racetrack and of course there is the actual casino floor if you care to try your luck (if of legal age to do so that is) but I digress. If you are new to the website and this kind of overview then you might have missed the two previous chapters. Those visitors can click HERE to see what they missed and catch up with the rest of us. I’m picking up where I left off the last time which was on the outside deck where all the cosplayers were milling about. It was cold for me and I had a jacket so I don’t know how those folks in spandex were dealing with it.
