'It is Love!': Cosplayers Get Engaged at New York Comic Con

A man proposed to his partner mid-lightsaber duel at New York Comic Con on October 9.

This video by Catherine Graham shows the cosplaying couple sparring moments before one of them, Elijah Catrone, drops to one knee and pulls a ring from his Luke Skywalker costume. Onlookers cheer as Catrone’s now-fiancee, Tina Yao, accepts.

“He had been planning it forever and it turned out beautiful,” Graham told Storyful. Credit: Catherine Graham via Storyful
