Are you ready for New York Comic Con!? Because we certainly are!

Cosplay Central will be at New York Comic Con this weekend at the Javits Center in New York City. The convention, running from Thursday, October 7th to Sunday, October 10th, will be one of the biggest convention stops for Cosplay Central this year.

The convention will also be the second location for the Cosplay Central Crown Championships. New York will be one of the competitions throughout the United States, and the Best In Show winner will participate in the regional competition at C2E2 2022 in a chance to be chosen to go to London for the international competition.

This year's Crown at New York Comic Con will be judged by Captain Kaycee, Cowbutt Crunchies, and Jaremi Carey. You can check out more details on the judges throughout their Instagrams, or by checking out the Twitter post below.

The judges will also be judging the New York Comic Con Cosplay Showcase, which is where fans and cosplayers can showcase their craftsmanship in style. This event is open to all cosplayers and is an opportunity for fans of all levels to strut their stuff in their hand made costumes on the main stage. In fact, cosplayers are free to take part just for fun if they do not wish to be judged! If you want to learn more about this event, be sure to check it out on New York Comic Con's website.
