The usual fall expos at the New York State Fairgrounds took place this weekend alongside a crowd of costumed heroes and characters from Japanese television shows.

Fandom members from far and wide converged at the fairgrounds Art & Home Center for the fifth annual Syracuse Anime Convention, which has been extended to a two-day event for the first time in its history.
