10 Creative Costumes from #C2E2 2015

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:
