Attendees of the 2014 New York Comic Con, which has now overtaken San Diego as the biggest comic convention in North America, were treated to panels, autograph and photo sessions with their celebrities of choice, and what seemed like miles of dealer-room floor. But what grabbed our attention with both hands and shouted "Look here!" were the cosplayers.

Although we have 66 cosplay shots, this represents a fraction of the work we saw wandering the halls of the Javits Center. Yes, work. As anyone who has sewn for weeks on end can tell you, these costumes don't make themselves.

Check it out and let us know your favorites in the comments!
