PiercingKen Goes To American International Toy Fair 2017

Hello readers!!! I’m happy to report that this entertainment outlet of mine was once again attending the American International Toy Fair at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. It’s our seventh year of attendance and the plan is to offer up as many sights and scenes as possible on both the PiercingMetal.com and PiercingKen.com websites.

PiercingMetal Went To WinterCon 2016

If you’ve been reading “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” for any reasonable length of time you already know that we explore in great visual detail the goings on at the massive NY Comic Con. That being said, its not the only convention that happens in our great metropolis and when the schedule permits we try to get ourselves properly set up and document the adventures on the PiercingMetal.com website. This past weekend, NYC hosted the 2016 WinterCon at Resorts World Casino out in South Ozone Park, Queens and we attended one of the two days that took place. Clicking the logo below will bring you right over to the visual coverage on PiercingMetal.com so we will see you over there.

Since this is only a signpost directing you to the other website, I have disabled the means to comment on this. You may leave all of your topical views on the posts that reside on PiercingMetal.com though so please do that should anything “speak” to you. I’ll be back soon with more chronicles so until then, see you next time 🙂

PiercingMetal Goes To Heroes & Villains Fan Fest 2016

This weekend, the Meadowlands Exposition Center played host to the “Heroes and Villains Fan Fest” and its the type of convention where fans of shows like “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Legends Of Tomorrow” could meet the cast of players and get photo ops with them for a nominal fee. There are also scores of vendors and cosplayers wandering around and I would be one of the attending press at the event. My coverage of the time that we spent at the event can be found on my PiercingMetal website and you can check it out by clicking the graphic below.

As usual the means to comment on this little signpost has been disabled but I welcome your topical thoughts on the collection of narratives over on the PiercingMetal site. See you over there 🙂

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2015

For the past four days, NY Comic Con had taken over the Jacob Javits Center and I was once again fortunate to be able to attend as a member of the press to put a story or three up on the PiercingMetal.com site. If you would like to see the visuals from our adventures at the Con (we went all four days mind you), just click the logo below to be transported over to that site where you can see the whole gamut. There are a healthy number of photographs to enjoy in the posts and I hope you like them (especially if you attended the Con).

Just to remind readers of this site about how I do my NY Comic Con posts on PiercingMetal.com; historically speaking I try to post no more than fifty images per post which allows any of the featured vendors and cosplayers to find themselves easily. This ends up making me have to post more but who cares, content is king and the more the merrier I always say. I’ve disabled the comments on this post since its more of a traffic sign that will direct you over to the main posts on PiercingMetal.com; You can comment over there if you have some topical viewpoints for sure.
