Nickel City Con Cosplay Highlights [Photo Gallery]

The first Nickel City Con is took place in Buffalo, New York earlier this month with an awesome lineup of celebrity guests, and an impressive display cosplay from all genres in attendance.

Headlining guests announced for this year included Sean Astin, who has starred numerous memorable roles in classics including The Goonies, Rudy, and The Lord or the Rings trilogy, as well as fan favorite Ray Park, who of course played Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Snake Eyes in both G.I. Joe movies, and the original Toad in X-Men.

Astin and Park both enjoyed meeting our pal “OBX Megatron” (cosplayer Brad Biddle) who was at the event with his photographer wife Kalie Biddle representing Halloween Daily News.

You can see some of the highlights from the 2016 Nickel City Con in our exclusive photo gallery below!

Nickel City Con will return next year, set for May 19-21, 2017, with William Shatner (The Twilight Zone, Star Trek) already announced as the headlining guest.
