Photos: New York Comic Con Trumped Halloween

Halloween came early this weekend as New York Comic Con took over the Javits Center and surrounding area. I stopped in briefly to see if the Topps stand was selling the new Garbage Pail Kids series, “Disgrace to the White House”, and faced a crush of humanity as I tried to make my way to the Drippy Donald cards. Best thing I saw on the way there was probably the dude dressed as Barf the mog (half man, half dog– he’s his own best friend). Until the Spaceballs sequel actually happens, it’s the only thing we’ve got. Click through our slideshow to see who else made the scene, and then check out scenes from the cosplay cruise that served as an after-party.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY

You Are So Lucky
Oct. 27 and 28 at a “secret location” in Yonkers; tickets $99-$250.
This party will once again bring an epic, immersive experience to the 33-acre grounds of Alder Manor, a 72-room Gilded Age mansion. This time, it’s a two-day affair with no less than 125 performers, including members of the House of Yes and The Danger families. Saturday’s throwdown is sold out, but you can still get tickets for Friday’s masquerade ball, inspired by the “bohemian history of decadence.”

BangOn’s Halloween Party Will Involve a ‘Flesh-Suspension Zipline’

unnamedWe thought it couldn’t get any better than A Place to Bury Strangers doing a show at Brooklyn Bazaar’s trippy new location, but this just upped our anticipation for Halloween weekend: The folks behind the massive BangOn! art raves just announced that this year’s Warehouse of Horrors is on for Oct. 29, and will take place at a new warehouse location featuring 30-foot-ceilings, two music stages, a Silent Disco, local food vendors, a bouncy house, and a “flesh-suspension zipline show.”

Dead Stars Is Going As Nirvana For Halloween

Turns out those two Nirvana cover albums aren’t your only chance to hear Kurt brought back from the grave. Wednesday at 285 Kent, Gigawatts is putting on a Halloween show and Dead Stars — last seen paying tribute to Colin Devlin — will be going as Nirvana. Other acts include Butter the Children as the Pixies, Le Rug as At The Drive-In, Turnip King as The Velvet Underground, Honduras as Green Day, and Grand Resort as New Order, in case you missed the real deal a few blocks away back in July. As you can see above, Dead Stars does a pretty spot-on version of “Breed” — watch them tear through the Nevermind track at a show at Dead Herring last year.

Ricky’s Is Dressing Up For Halloween On Houston Street

It’s been 25 years since Ricky’s opened its first store (called Ricky Love) in Greenwich Village, and the quirky/kinky/funky/punky cosmetics and accessories chain is still going strong: we recently noticed COMING SOON signage in the window at 250 East Houston Street, between Avenues A and B. No, this isn’t a new permanent location: we’re told by the folks at corporate headquarters that it’s a Halloween pop-up that’ll likely open sometime next month.

Sigh, summer’s really ending, isn’t it? It’s enough to make a man buy some “Raven Black” Manic Panic and go full Goth.

Photo BOOth: 37 Hours, 16 Halloween Parties Across NYC

Tight Fright with their audience at the conclusion of their tour kickoff at Knitting Factory in Williamsburg, 10/27/17 at 10p.

New York City partied hard over the weekend and today is a bit of an intermission before we celebrate all over again tomorrow. My annual marathon of Halloween party portraits took me all over town and culminated backstage with Fatboy Slim after a raucous two-hour set that shook the block-long entirety of Bang On’s Warehouse of Horrors.
