New York Comic Con 2013 was this past weekend. Wandering the floor with so many amazing cosplayers to choose from for photographs, I found myself drawn, again and again, to the kids.

They have so much fun. They get so much joy out of the amazing costumes that they have either bought or made, and they are so awestruck by all the other people around them who are dressed up as characters from their favorite movies, TV shows and comic books.

Then Sunday rolls around, and I’m officially dead from cute. Sunday is Family Day at New York Comic Con, and while you might have seen a mini-Thor earlier in the weekend, or cowered before a mini Transformer on Saturday, you really cannot take a step on Sunday without tripping over someone adorable. Here are a few of my favorites.

(This might even give you some ideas for Halloween.)
