Beach Fun In New York City Courtesy of Meraki Expo

While for most people the first Saturday in May means Free Comic Book Day, in Downtown Manhattan's M1-5 Lounge, it was more of a beach day filled with cosplayers showing off beach variations of their favorite characters for the Meraki Expo Cosplay Fashion Show & Summer Beach Bash. Characters from Final Fantasy, X-Men, Sailor Moon and Stars Wars were some in attendance on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. F Stands For was in attendance for the festivities and surprisingly, a big number of photographers as well. 

Everyone who attended the event had the choice to either have a leis or beach balls upon entry. While during the event some folks also walked away with some free swag, thanks to raffles from Epic Cosplay Wigs and SuperHeroStuff. The swimsuit fashion show portion of the event brought out some of the fiercest and at times, the funniest talents to the stage.

For those unfamiliar, Meraki Expo is a one-day cosplay expo that will be held inside the Art Factory in Paramus, New Jersey on May 9th. You can follow Meraki Expo on Twitter and Facebook for updates on any future events.
