The floor at New York Comic Con draws some of the most creative cosplayers in the city, creating a virtual traffic jam of inventive costumes. The vast floor is necessarily egalitarian, so modest modification stand side-by-side with complicated builds, and given the crowds, it can sometimes be hard to spot the best of the best.

Unless you have a ticket to Saturday night's NYCC Championships of Cosplay.

The top cosplayers on the East Coast gathered on Saturday evening to show off their most intricate and creative designs, with a $5000 cash prize and a berth in next year's Global Championships of Cosplay event at C2E2 on the line. It was a lively event filled with incredible work and a boisterous crowd, including a Freddie Mercury cosplayer who lip-synced the entirety of "Bohemian Rhapsody" before the event even really kicked off. NYCC is just that kind of party.
