Last week, more than 100,000 nerds gathered at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City to celebrate all things geek in comics, movies, anime, books, and TV. Here's a glimpse of what it was like. Photos by LoquaciousMuse.


Just a dinosaur. Walking around the Con. Buying some wares. The usual.

The Geek Chic gatekeeper. We need all of these weapons.

No Comic Con is complete without

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

decor.

The cast of

Dirty Work

gets together for a panel on out-of-the-box production company Fourth Wall Studios.

At his session, Kevin Smith encouraged audience members to make their own podcasts and not let fear or self-doubt stand in the way.

And you thought

Hello Kitty

was all sugar, no spice.

Two lovely ladies cosplaying as The Hunger Games' Katniss and Peeta.

Have you hugged a stormtrooper today? (Sometimes they bite.)

Two of many gender-reversed Harley and Jokers at the Con.

What a group! Comic Con: The only place where you'll see characters from

Borderlands 2

, henchmen from

The Venture Bros

and that creepy clown from

Twisted Metal

. hanging out.

Captain America salutes us. We swoon a little. It's embarrassing for everyone.

Here's a horse, kicking

Korra

and

Chun-Li's

butts in

Just Dance

.

Slender Man is freaking absolutely everyone out.

Hottest thing at the Con:

"Gangnam Style"

flash mobs...

... complete with Joker breakdancing.

Excellent Bellatrix and Lord Voldemort cosplay. Anyone dressed as Harry Potter stayed far away from these two!

How did this lady—who is dressed up a character from the Silent Hill video game—see?

Adorable baby Sokka and older sister Toph. (And check out that excellent Little Mermaid in the background!)

Two villainous worlds collide (

Resident Evil

and

Silent Hill

, to be exact).

Captain Planet!

It's nice to see Artist's Alley so crowded.

She should be running away from this dangerous looking Terminator. Instead, she wants a picture.
