NYCC 2013: A Before the Event Primer on What You Might Not Know

Navigating through NYCC each year can be quite an adventure.  I’ve been going since year one and while I always have an amazing time, know my way around and have contacts in places, even I get lost in the shuffle of it all.  Panels pop at last minute, schedules change.   All that, and more.  This presentation of collected links is something a little different though.

This is for those NYCCer attendees who are either attending all four days or just have that ONE big panel they wanted to go to and don’t intend to explore New York City itself.  Because?  You don’t have to.  By all means, if you are on Vacation and using NYCC as an excuse to come to New York then take full advantage.  Yet I know there are plenty folks like me who live here or maybe just want to experience comic con.  If that’s the case even with a full schedule there will be hours of time where you’ll be “What now?” and instead of just standing there trying to be “I’ll just play more Zelda or stand around the Marvel booth” I went and looked up some interesting stuff for you to check out.

First up are some booths that could if anything provide moments of enjoyment and add to that getting the bang for your buck experience:

8-Bit Bakery: Video game inspired cookies, cakes and brownies
Electro-Flash Media : Activated Light-Up Apparel
Animated Closet: Beautiful clothing
GameChanger World: Mobile gaming company
STL Ocarina: Instruemnt making compay focusing on Ocarinas, and specially made Zelda ones at this time too.
Roadhouse Sons: A graphic novel, a prose novel series, a band and I think a cartoon… defintely one to check out.
Chop-Chop Store: Graphic Design Tees
