ny comic con

Originality is a must if you’re cosplaying at New York Comic Con, and after 10 years of the exposition, it’s not easy to come up with a costume that hasn’t already been worn. One of the most unique ways to stand out from the crowd, though, is to genderbend.

A genderbend is when a male or female cosplayer portrays a character that is better known of the other sex, and the Javits Center saw plenty of them in 2015. Here are some of Costume SuperCenter‘s favorites.
