There are a lot of reasons to love New York Comic Con. Of course, there are the obvious ones: all the wild panels, fun interviews, and the breaking news produced by both of them. And then there's the cosplay, which is notable both for its incredible creativity and for the fact that it fills the New York subways up with people decked out in superhero costumes, ridiculous armor, wild masks, blood-red paint, and other genre accouterments.

We have our eyes peeled for the best of the best cosplay at the Javits Center, and on day two we were not disappointed. There was a great mix of classic superheroes, group costumes, and horror icons. On Saturday, we were especially impressed by the efforts that large groups put into coordinating their cosplay — especially a crew pumped up for the Black Panther movie.

Whether you're planning to attend the con or not, check out our gallery of some of the best of the best cosplay from the third day at NYCC — and then go back and check out the sweet costumes from day one and day two!
