My BOO-DAY Weekend at C2E2 2018

My BOO-DAY Weekend at C2E2 2018

Team Gregula had the extreme pleasure of attending the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, also known as C2E2 taking place April 6-8, 2018. This year's edition was extra special for us because it was also my BOO-DAY (April 7th) weekend!

The party was happening at McCormick Place and there was so much to see and do! Plenty of vendors were at C2E2 selling their nerdy wares to the crowds packing the main floor.

One thing that C2E2 is known for is the many different cosplayers dressed up as our favorite heroes and villains. The annual C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay is the highlight of the con!

I got a little surprise gift as a prize on the spin the wheel at the Chicago White Sox booth. Happy Birthday to me!

The best part of the convention for us was meeting the celebrities! There were so many from film and TV stars to authors and artists. Da Count (in mortal disguse met Chicago's very own Horror Host Svengoolie. We also got to meet Joe Gatto from TV's Impractical Jokers, who by the way gives great hugs. The highlight of the weekend was meeting one of my favorite people, SpongeBob SquarePants himself - Tom Kenny - on my birthday! His manager/handler gave me an autographed pic as a gift, and Tom Kenny even wished me happy birthday as SpongeBob with a bit of Gary the Snail thrown in! <3

Team Gregula had a fang-tastic time at C2E2 and it was one of the happiest birthdays I've ever had. We can hardly wait to do it again next year!
