Here's A Guide To The Third Episode Of "See Something Say Something"

Take a look at all the amazing cosplay from Comic Con!

Posted on November 4, 2016, at 2:33 p.m. ET

This week on the new BuzzFeed podcast See Something Say Something, I'm joined by utter geniuses Bim Adewunmi and Abid Anwar to talk about fandom and seeing yourself represented in pop culture. Take a listen here!

Bim and I went to New York City Comic Con and talked to cosplayers, so we talk quite a bit about that.

In this episode, we geek out about comic books and TV shows, so I put together a handy visual guide. Come back later if you haven't listened yet!

Bonus material! My goal at the Con was to find the Muslim presence, and I definitely found it.

I talked to Muslim cosplayers, artists, writers, and even a family of superfans.

I specifically asked people about Kamala Khan, Marvel's recent Muslim breakout hit.

I even cosplayed for the first time, copying Kamala's iconic look from Ms. Marvel #1.

Bim, meanwhile, cosplayed as Gwendolyn from Brian K. Vaughan's amazing space opera, Saga.

Bim also found a bunch of Storm cosplayers. A really badass moment happened when these two found each other and said, "I see you, fam."
