New York Comic Con 2014 Cosplay: Part 1

Hello Nubians,

Every year I'm so very excited to see the cosplayers at New York Comic Con. I've also noticed that every year people are getting more and more creative/innovative with their costumes when it comes to signs, making their own costumes instead of buying ones from the store, and also mixing and matching different characters into one costume which is pretty cool. I can't wait to dress up next year myself, I really want to cook up something special.

This year the lovely and talented Theresa Taylor went behind the lens for NubiasNonsense to show us so of the kooky, crazy, and high spirited cosplayers. Let's take a look at a couple of the magical moments she captured.

Warning: Extremely Awesome Content Below. Viewers Advised.  

This just married Dead Pool couple is Ah-MAZ-ing. They're also either fans of Sir Mix-A-lot or Nicki Minaj... or both. My Anaconda Don't Want None Unless You Got Buns Hun! 

Beariel! Such a babe. We must grab some oysters one day under the sea. 


Child's Play. This Chucky is creepy as hell. I would have preferred the see a wig and some makeup on the face but it's scary Nonetheless. 

Tomb Raiders! The one on the left even has polygon boobs, PlayStation 1 days. 

DC kids. The Riddler, Robin, Catwoman, Batman, Nightwing.

What a lovely pair. These cosplayers look like The Dark Knight Rises Christian Bale and Anne Hatheway. 


Rogue, Hey Sugar ;-) 

Wolveine vs Sith Girl. 

Scorpion says: GET OVER HERE! Where is the rest of the Mortal Kombat crew? 

Our good friend Dane as the Assassins Creed Joker.

THIS guy is awesome. Red Hulk I'm guessing? Check out the toes!


Teen Titans Raven.


The cutest damn Logan you'll ever see. Wolverine, X-Men. 

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!

Dragon Ball Z, Goku.

Bang! Bang!

Captain Jack Sparrow!

Hey Bulma, Did you run into Goku? 

Here are just a few of many amazing photos from this years New York Comic Con 2014. Make sure to check out my other blog Pop! Goes The Nubia too. The time and dedication put into all of this is bananas!

New York Comic Con 2014: Pammy Cakes Boutique.

Hello Nubians,

I LOVE playful fashion and feeling youthful, this is one of the many reasons I'm inspired by Japanese Style. All the colors, characters, texture, and emotion that goes into the clothing make me happier when I wear it.

This year at New York Comic Con it was great seeing Pammy Cakes Boutique: Fairy Kei & Casual Lolita Boutique booth set up! She was absolutely killing 'em with utter cuteness. It isn't her first time at Comic Con and it isn't her first time on NubiasNonsense either, if you remember I interviewed her HERE.

Pammy Cakes Boutique contains t-shirts with characters and saying such as "Lolita, Come Out and Play" or "So Kawaii" she also carries beautiful full tulle skirts with bows and other embellishments. There's also a nice array of jewelry and bracelets. Some of the jewelry has Berries & Choco Cake, Lemon Cake, Cupcakes, it looks so delicious I want to eat it! There's also a lot of cute pearl earrings and bracelets. Hair bows, and cat ears are also sold among other accessories.... I mean seriously, KAWAII!!!!! It's like a little piece of Japan located in NYC.

Above see Pamela Jackson owner and designer of Pammy Cakes Boutique striking a pose for us at her booth at New York Comic Con. I mean, look at her in that pink wig and cat ears from her collection! She's adorable. We happen to know that she loves cosplay and dressing up for all occasions too. 

We have our eye on that enormous bow.

We were completely smitten with this unicorn tee and its My Little Pony vibes. It was one of her best sellers at Comic Con, she sold out of them. 

We need a pair of those heart shape earrings with the pearl asap!

Some awesome Comic Con cosplayers shopping at her booth stopped to strike a pose. 

We hope to see her again next October at New York Comic Con 2015. Can't wait to see what new merchandise she'll carry. 

We pulled this little questionnaire from her site below for you to get to know her better. Click to enlarge :)

McCall's Company Cosplay Patterns At New York Comic Con 2014.

Hey Nubians,

Cosplaying is so much fun! If you haven't tried it I must say, there's something very liberating about dressing up and channeling your inner superhero or heroine. You want to know what's even MORE COOL? People that make their own costumes! It's easy to go into a store and buy a generic costume, but unique costumes are always so much more intriguing. I personally love to pay attention to detail.

However, making your own cosplay costume can be difficult... especially if you have no experience sewing. This is why McCalls Pattern Booth is such a great stop for you to make if you're thinking of cosplaying in the future or currently cosplay and want to step up your game.

Here are some photos from the booth. They encourage you to pass by and chat about sewing and cosplay. 

McCalls also does patterns for Vogue and other brands which is good to know if you ever need a dress or a particular look for a special occasion.

Here's a photo I got from the teams Facebook below. They look like a fun group of people. 

Till next time my dear readers!

New York Comic Con 2014 Beauty.

Hello Nubians,

As much as New York Comic Con is about panels, artist and well ummm, DUH Comics! They're doing a great job catering to us ladies when it comes to taking a break and pampering yourself.

New York Comic Con already has tons of booths with clothing to feed your fashion needs. The clothing isn't just comic and pop culture related either. You can find some cool vintage booths, victorian inspired garments, and very fashion forward unique japanese looking styles that make my eyes want to fill up with tears while I yell out "KAWAII!" at the same damn time. Cosplayers are also running all over the place for your visual inspiration. Now I'm noticing they're really starting to get the beauty department on lock too.  I was pleased to find the brands below had booths.

NYX Cosmetics
I'm a big fan of NYX cosmetics, remember when I did a video about their Macaron Lippies? Anyway, They have makeup artist adding some awesome pops of colors to your lips and they also have pretty NYX eyeshadows. Pass by their booth #629 to get done up!

If you like the makeup they apply on you or the tools, I believe you can purchase most of it at their booth. Also, tap your badge for a free item... Everyone loves free stuff!

Pretty, pretty colors. 

Here's a screen shot I took of their instagram hashtag on my phone #NYXNYCC 

Nail Candy Nail Polish Pens
Us gals love getting our nails done. Nail Candy Pens make it so easy for us and here's why:

"Our Nail Polish Pen is unique with its Patented Designer “Micro-Tip”. Each pen includes two salon quality colors, 2 Brushes and 2 Micro-Tips for stylish nail art!" 

So many rich colors to choose from, oh my!

Impress Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails
Impress nails are perfect for a lady on the run because they're so easy to use. Most of the nails designs I've seen are very pretty and sometimes themed. You just press on the nails that already have adhesive on them and POW! 

Check out these ladies working their magic at Comic Con below. 

Here's some pretty cool nail art I pulled off the imPRESS Facebook page that can cater to your Halloween or Spider Woman needs too.

Comic Con never ceases to amaze me. Not to sound corny, but there truly is something for everyone.
