It’s getting to be that time of year again – that time when your friends and neighbors put on their best cosplay costumes and head to Resorts World Casino for the annual New York Winter Con this weekend.

The event, which is New York’s largest science fiction convention, is now in its third year at Resorts World Casino, located at 110-00 Rockaway Blvd. in South Ozone Park, and will run from Dec  1 to Dec. 3. Die-hard sci-fi fans will be able to check out the plethora of artists and actors from comic book and sci-fi movies and  TV shows.  There will also be numerous cosplayers and comic-book vendors with discounts and valuable items to sell. The event will also have life-sized interactive displays for the family.

On Friday, there will be a live rock ‘n roll karaoke night hosted by Kung FOO karaoke as well as panels and discussions throughout the weekend.
