Team Gregula once again hit up the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (aka C2E2) for the 6th year in a row! It was a fang-tasticially nerdy weekend full of superhero and villain fun, with a touch of horror to top it all off. Taking place April 24-26, 2015 at Chicago's McCormick Place, C2E2 had a lot to see and do. Friday is usually a free day for Da Count and myself so we spent it walking around the giant vendor room where everything from tee shirts to collectible figurines and comic books were being sold. Insidious Chapter 3 also brought their Into the Further 4D Experience to C2E2 and of course we had to check it out! It was a frightening but fun virtual reality experience that brings you inside the movie itself with ghosts surrounding you and even got a virtual meeting with the medium Elise.
Saturday at C2E2 is always the biggest day of the show, with an appearance by the Gregulas! Da Count walked around the convention hall in all his undead glory and Team Gregula had an opportunity to meet and interview people from Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, including cast members from Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell. We almost got run over by a golf cart and lo and behold, Stan Lee was riding on it! He waved hi to us as he rolled off, pretty cool.
Sunday and all through the weekend we saw celebs like Chad Coleman (Tyreese from The Walking Dead) and WWE star Jerry "The King" Lawler and Sgt. Slaughter. We also met Anthony Kosar, special effects master and Face Off winner. Last but certainly not least there were the cosplayers. Lots and lots of cosplayers ranging from Planet of the Apes to PacMan, many featured in our pics at the end. Team Gregula had a MARVELous time at C2E2 and can't wait to fly back for next year's edition!. **TWO FANGS UP**
