As you know from our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature, we're big fans of cosplay at ComicsAlliance. The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics are definitely on display this weekend at New York Comic-Con, and you’d better believe we're on hand to document as much as we can. Click after the cut for some exceptional examples of superheroic cosplaying talent that we spotted on the first day of NYCC 2013.
