How bad? ReedPop is sending out emails apologizing for how bad it was! I couldn't get to see any of the panels I wanted to see. ReedPop tried a new system to regulate the lines at panels. However, right away, people gamed the system: they slept overnight at the Javits Center so they could register for panels at 6am! When people got there at 9am for the opening of the convention, the panels were filled!
The cosplay was fantastic. There were a few Elevens and Barbs from Stranger Things (plus someone put up missing posters for Barb all over the convention center). And someone had dressed themselves up as the wall from Stranger Things with blinking Xmas lights! 2 Hodors with doors! And of course: I saw and counted 41 Harley Quinns :-(
I was loaded down with stuff and couldn't get to my camera that often and ended up taking only 4 photos:
