Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo 2014
One of my absolute favorite times of the year has come and gone, the bitter sweet taste of convention time in Chicago. The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo held at the McCormick Place convention center was last weekend, it is a smaller convention then say the Wizard Con later in the summer but it holds a special place in my heart. C2E2 started back in 2010 and it was the first convention I ever attended, I have gone every year since 2011 and fall in love with it more each year. Although the guests and panels are always entertaining, this year we get a great ranged from the old school icons like Ernie Hudson, Hulk Hogan and Tony Todd to newer stars from Game of Thrones, Defiance and Warehouse 13, the real treat is seeing all of my fellow geeks, nerds, cosplayers, gamers, comic readers, bronies etc in their comfort zone. Let’s play a little game, I honestly cannot name all of these characters, why not help me out in the comments and I can fill in my knowledge gaps and give these cosplayers the respect they deserve with proper names.
SUBJECT DELTA & ELEANOR LAMB – BIO SHOCK – In this first duo is a coworker of mine and her husband, these two have been working on this cosplay for over a year and the craftsmanship is amazing. They came in third in the smaller cosplay competition! You can read about their journey of marriage and cosplay here
