Another weekend, another convention. It’s the time of year when entertainment conventions are practically stacked on top of one another. In the past month, I’ve been to WonderCon, Star Wars Celebration, and the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. The latter took place in Chicago over the weekend. It was my first time attending C2E2, and I was impressed by the size of the exhibit hall and Artist’s Alley. I attended a few panels, but mostly, I wandered around in a daze and these are some of the great costumes I saw while doing so:
Xibalba from The Book of Life
Frankenstein’s monster’s family
Imperial Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and princess shadow trooper
LEGO Boba Fett
Optimus Prime from Transformers
Red Skull and Dum Dum Dugan from Marvel Comics
Usagi Yojimbo from the comic of the same name
War Machine and Hawkeye from Marvel Comics
Wash from Serenity
