C2E2 2019 Cosplay Gallery

It was that time once again to head south on 94 and make my way to Chicago, for C2E2 2019, which took place March 22, 2019 – March 24, 2019. It was a two-day event for me, going on Saturday and Sunday. Each year I go seems to be a new experience and this was no different. This year we seemed to focus more on the panels, spending more time in the main room rather than walking around, and when we did hit the convention floor, it was around Artist Alley, getting stuff signed and trying our best not to buy numerous prints/artwork we have no room for. So that meant less pictures of cosplayers this year, but I was able to get a few at the last minute once the show closed on Sunday, and people were lingering outside the entrance. But on the plus side, I got to cover a few panels, with pictures, and hey, even a video for you to enjoy.

See below for our rundown of C2E2 2019, along with our photo gallery from the convention and panel coverage and videos.

C2E2 2018 header

Last month, it was once again that time for me to drive south and head into downtown Chicago, avoid the construction (as much as possible), and make our way to another year of C2E2, the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. For us here in the Midwest, this is most likely the biggest convention in the area, although there were a few conventions going on in Chicago as well. I think it did affect the crowd a little, as it didn’t seem too terrible on Saturday.

See below for our rundown of C2E2 2018, along with our photo gallery from the convention.

C2E2 2014 Convention Sign header

It’s been awhile since I have gotten the chance to hit up one of the local conventions, 2 years since the last C2E2, and a few more till San Diego Comic-Con. But things worked out this year and I was able to head down to Chicago to check out one day of C2E2 on Saturday, April 26.

You can check out our photo gallery from the convention here below, including several of cosplayers, as well as cover of some of the panels, including the 20th anniversary of the film, The Crow.

The first thing that hit me as we arrived at the convention center is the fact that this Con has really grown in the past few years, and that meant being moved to the other side of the convention center. It may not be anywhere close to the scale of SDCC, but I have admit that it’s giving Wizard World a run for its money, although it has been a few years since my last visit as well, and hopefully I will check it out in August.

Guide To Cosplay

In consideration of this weekend’s C2E2 convention in Chicago, Illinois, I wanted to take a moment to talk to some attendees and discuss the proper way to cosplay.

Now, the first thing that you should know about this collection of suggestions is that I am one of the few that can truly appreciate all forms of cosplay whether it be prepared months to years in advance, down to putting on a Jake hat and just wearing brown. So, don’t think this is article that is meant to condemn anyone for their cosplaying desires. And while I’ve not actually cosplayed at a convention, I celebrate Halloween like it should be celebrated. So, I have some expertise within the social costuming segment of the population. Also, you’ll get a bit of a view from someone that shows appreciation to your effort, while also having to deal with the elaborateness of your chosen costume. So, now that we’ve given the parameters of this guideline, let us move along unto the actual list.

Geeks of Doom Invades C2E2 2010

Bone Tall TalesDuring the Jeff Smith spotlight panel at C2E2 this past weekend, one of the questions asked to the creator was what the status on the Bone animated movie was. According to Smith, Warner Bros is working with a company called Animalogic and they have already done a 3D animation test and are continuing to move forward on the project. Animalogic has worked on other 3D films before, notably Happy Feet.

Smith was also asked whether he would prefer a Bone movie to be filmed in 3D or if he would have preferred a more traditional hand drawn 2D style, and while he admitted he would have preferred the 2D style, he understood that no one would front the money unless it was made in the more popular 3D computer-generated style.
