These cosplayers are ready to kick some ass

Here's part two of our cosplay gallery from New York Comic-Con. Photographer Senen Llanos took these photos for us, and what you see in the gallery is a result of Senen emulating the film look to really make these cosplayers shine. Check out part one of our gallery here. What's your favorite outfit from the bunch?

40 minutes of the world's biggest cosplay party

Five days, three cameramen, and a ton of dancing equals Beat Down Boogie's epic 40 minutes of cosplay from Dragon Con 2013. There's been some cosplay montages from Beat Down Boogie already, but this one is the big one showcasing hundreds upon hundreds of amazing costumes. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the montage. Plus check out all the stills over on Beat Down's Facebook page.

You've never seen cosplayers look this heroic photo
You've never seen cosplayers look this heroic
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Sure, New York Comic-Con 2013 isn't as big as that other Comic-Con, but that's not about to stop people from dressing up as the characters they love. This year Destructoid had photographer Senen Llanos at the show to take photos for us, and as you can see he has a very different style from what you normally see with cosplay photography.

"I love cosplay and the endlessly talented people that pour hundreds of hours into creating the perfect costume," Senen told me. "In that sense I feel it is my obligation to capture them giving them with the same amount of dedication. This year I wanted to emulate the film look from the movies. Not just lighting them properly but also giving a bit of color and drama to their performance all in the name of showing their work as awesome as I can make it look."

Take a look through the gallery below for all the shots! We'll have some more photos coming tomorrow too.

I played the 2DS with Jim Sterling wrapped around me photo
I played the 2DS with Jim Sterling wrapped around me
by Jordan Devore

I ran into Jonathan Holmes on the PAX Prime 2013 show floor and not a minute later he had me trying out the 2DS with Jim Sterling hugging me dearly. Attempting to play a game and talk coherently with a camera watching your every move is a challenge on its own, but this was a new experience for me. And no, we don't have an HR department.

The system's shoulder buttons aside, there wasn't much to complain about -- especially at the lower, $129.99 price point. Nintendo is targeting a younger demographic with the 2DS and I think the device will serve them well. You may just end up liking it, too.
