This was my very first time attending Comic Con. It was incredibly awesome! It’s a place where everyone comes together and dresses up as their favourite characters. Mark and I dressed up as Princess Jasmine and Aladdin, whereas my best friends dressed as Sailor Scouts.
We all met up at my apartment at 10am since I live the closest to the Javits Center. As soon as we left the apartment, eyes were all on us. Some did look quite confused and some even “reminded” us that it’s too early for Halloween, but numerous of bystanders wished us all a good time at New York Comic Con. (Keep up with the times, people!) On the train we already got some picture requests.
Once we’ve reached to the convention center. OH-EM-GEE.
It was heaven! Practically everyone were dressed up and some of them were LEGIT-looking costumes. It was amazing. There were a lot of Harley Quinns, Jokers, and Deadpools. Since we walked altogether to different areas, we kept getting out photos taken. It was such an amazing feeling. The part I loved the most is where the kids would run up to me calling “Princess Jasmine!” Also, some book stalls ask for pictures with their art version of Princess Jasmine! It was fun to be in-character and act like a princess for a day. Smiling, waving and posing with my dear Aladdin. It was so worth going and putting such effort into our costumes. Will definitely go every year onwards!
