If Doctor Doom has to get in line an hour early for a panel, mere mortals do too.


You aren’t allowed to imbibe alcohol on the show floor…unless you pretend it’s iced tea.

The line for Starbucks and the ATM were longer than the lines for some panels.


Peter Mayhew is the saddest man in the world. (But super sweet!)


People still love finding Waldo.


Even if your character calls for it, do not cosplay in heels. Boots or ballet flats, ladies.


Fandom cross-pollination is extremely high.


You are not allowed to bring whips or chemical weapons to NYCC. :(

Bonus Fact: Traveling with Man Leia means never going more than ten feet without having to stop to get his photo taken.


Hot dogs inside the building were $4. Hot dogs immediately OUTSIDE the building were $2.

The press lounge was not as glamourous as one might think.


Deadpool and Lady Deadpool were inexplicably the most populous costumes.
