New York City Comic Con invaded the city like it does every year making it one of the city’s biggest and most fun events.

There is just sense of fun in the year as straphangers and New Yorkers, see their favorite comic book characters, television show personalities and cartoon characters come to life.

Once you step in the vicinity of the Jacob K. Javits Center you are immersed in a world of wonder and fantasy. Team SFPL was on hand to soak it all in and of course capture all of the amazing cosplay on hand.

The Flyest Cosplays of #28daysofblackcosplay 2017 Edition

Cosplayer Chaka Cumberbatch’s movement to appreciate the work of fellow cosplayers of color, #28daysofblackcosplay, has grown into more than just a hashtag. It has become a month long digital black geek fashion show giving cosplayers and fans the opportunity to show some love to their favorites as well as up and coming cosplayers. It also has become an appointment hashtag with cosplayers preparing cosplays and shoots in preparation for it. Here is a look at some of the flyest we saw from this year’s #28daysofblackcosplay.

While February has been reserved for reflection on the black experience and the contributions that have come from it, the month has also evolved into a celebration of black achievements and their influence on various genres including pop culture. One such area is the geek market, particularly cosplay, where cosplayers or color often find themselves fighting colorism and racism even when dressing up as fictional characters. To encourage these cosplayers to continue expressing their fandom, despite the backlash, the hashtag #28daysofblackcosplay was created. The brainchild of cosplayer Chaka Cumberbatch  #28daysofblackcosplay started as a rallying cry and evolved into a celebratory lighting rod that drew attention to not only the plight of black cosplayers but their resilience, their excellence and dedication to their craft.

For those who want to get involved and share their favorite cosplayers, Chaka has put a spin on this year’s festivities adding themes to each day.

And if you are looking for cosplayers to follow and/or share Petite Ebby Cosplay has created a database with the social media pages of over 300 cosplayers with more being added constantly. ( List )

We will be sharing some of our flyest cosplayers throughout the month so check back often.
