Could Cosplay Be Banned For New York Comic Con?


NYCC, Erik R Trinidad

So there have been a number of incidents involving people who dress in costumes and “perform” on and around Times Square in return for donations. A Cookie Monster who may have shoved a two year old boy when his mother didn’t pay up for a photo quickly enough. An anti-semitic Elmo. You know.

Well, New York City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. certainly does and he has introduced legislation that would either ban costumed characters in New York City or see them heavily regulated. Such as getting official permission from the people who own the rights to the characters.

Yeah, so that’s going to happen.

But furthermore, what does this mean for the New York Comic Con?

It may take place inside the Javits Center, but people have to get there and half the fun is travelling on the subway or walking down 12th Avenue all dolled up.

And what if the law itself were passed in the Marvel Universe? Dan Slott, this one’s for you.
