Pics From The Mary Sue and Her Universe’s Fabulous NYCC Meetup!

NO! A ton of you showed up despite all the snafus!
Much thanks to Beer Authority for taking our party on very short notice.
We're so glad that all of you came!
But it also wouldn't have been as much of a party without Ashley Eckstein and her Her Universe swag. Here she is with a couple of appropriately dressed Rebel pilots. Don't worry about Ashley, she accepted a complimentary zombie makeover earlier in the day. I'm sure it all washed off later. Then again, she did seem kind of hungry all evening...
This dalek dress is rivaled only by the incredible pose its wearer struck when I asked for a picture.
Korra and Black Canary: unlikely, perhaps, but I dig it.
My fellow editor Jill Pantozzi had a panel that started at the exhausting hour of 9 pm, so she wasn't actually able to make it to the party until almost eleven! But once she did make it there, it was random giveaway time!
Now, here's where you get to see all the stuff that's been piling up in our office for a year. This is a lightsaber.
This is a book of art from the
Star Wars MMO (hey, when you invite Ashley to your party, you gotta theme it correctly).
Knits for Nerds, a great guide to nerdy knitting projects.
Grave Expectations. Great Expectations with werewolves. Be free, little book! Go be a curiosity on someone else's desk!
A ton of Magic cards.
And a ton of not-Magic cards.
This is your happily overwhelmed managing editor, signing off.
Sit awhile and let your humble managing editor tell you the tale of the Mary Sue/Her Universe Meetup that was crazy awesome. It began in tragedy: an unexpected and last minute change in location! Would anyone see the tweets? Check the updated post? Get frustrated and give up on the party entirely?
