One of the things I absolutely had to do before leaving Chicago is to attend C2E2 – the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. Every year I’ve been here, I’ve remembered I needed to get tickets a week after the event ended! This time, with Chicago State cancelling spring break and me having to forfeit my trip to New Mexico, I was determined not to miss the event.
Turns out I don’t know much about popular culture.
My goal was to catch up on the latest in Star Wars costumes. I was not disappointed. There were a few good Ray’s in the crowd and a couple Kylo Ren’s, one of which was a little happier than in the movie, but majority of Star Wars outfits fell into the Stormtrooper/Mandalorian category.
There were many costumes that were completely lost on me. I needed an artist to tell me who Groot was (after I bought a bunch of his work), and I’m happy that Ghostbusters has made a comeback because I could recognize those costumes. Ah well, here’s how I saw the show. Start the slideshow by clicking on a picture.
