Escape Pod Comics in Huntington, Long Island, have become known for their "cosplay Sunday" events in the recent past. Well, this weekend on Sunday things are going Halloween-themed and breaking into a full-day series of events from free Comicsfest comics, to cosplayers, cosplay demos, live model drawing, and an art auction.
What they got up to for their decorations and window display, courtesy of artist Sarah Luchins, is particularly astonishing, creating a full model of "The Stalk" from Saga, complete with bloody hands.
Here are some images of Luchins' impressive window display for Escape Pod Comics:
