New York Comic Con officially hosted just over 20,000 more people this year than San Diego Comic Con, making it the largest fandom convention in the land.
One thing has made NYCC grow in popularity by leaps and bounds over the years- the online publicity created by cosplay photos.
Cosplay has always been a big part of NYCC, and many cosplayers and fans consider NYCC the place to go if you want to see the very best cosplay creations.
Two themes seem to have dominated the floor this year- gender swap and mashup, both of which were handled in a very serious manner, of course.
Dorkly put together a collection of the 50 Best Cosplays seen at New York Comic Con 2014, and when they say the best they really mean it!
Every costume in the bunch is a winner, and there's enough variety to keep even the most cynical cosplay connoisseur entertained through the entire fifty photo set.
