Big Apple Con 2022

The weekend of March 26 & 27, 2022 marked the latest edition of the Big Apple Con. I hadn't attended one of their shows since October 2010. But, with the awesome guest list that they had booked, I simply had to go!

The person I was most looking forward to meeting was the beautiful Shantel VanSanten. She starred in The Final Destination, The Flash, and more. On The Flash, she played Detective Patty Spivot, my favorite of all of the Flash's love interests on that show. She was a great character, as well as looking stunning and playing her role excellently. Anyway, she looks absolutely amazing in person!

Next up was Katie Barberi, another star that I was pumped up to meet. She's starred in many projects, but I know her best from playing Tangerine in the infamous cult favorite The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. I loved that movie, as a kid. I haven't watched since, though, and have no clue what I would think about it today. Anyway, I had a big childhood crush on her, and, as such, I was stocked to meet her! She still looks drop-dead gorgeous and was very sweet in person. Barberi was all smiles and had her adorable and sweet little doggy with her. I'm glad that she also was in the pic with us! 

Last, but most certainly. not least was the beautiful Michelle Harrison, who among her many roles, played Nora Allen/ the Speed Force on The Flash. She was so sweet and down to earth in person, that it was a complete pleasure to meet her. That and I absolutely love the way this pic came out. The lighting the photographer used was so good!

There was also a ton of cosplay on this day. I am sure that this is, at least in part, due to the fact that that they were having a cosplay contest later that day. I didn't cosplay, this time around cause I knew I was leaving early. Anyway, here are some of my favorite cosplays that I saw:

Finally, I didn't really get a lot of swag this time around, but I did, at least , pick up the new Punisher #1 (Alex Ross variant cover) and a Blu-ray of Ozzfest, which I scored for $10!

I had a good time, even if I did end up leaving by the afternoon. I plan on returning to this con and next time, hopefully, in cosplay. Did any of you guys go? If so what did you like the most? Did you meet any celebs? Let me know in the comments section below.
