Top o' the evenin' to ya, geeks! I hope you all had a fine St. Patrick's Day. The holiday really spans a whole weekend in Chicago, but my favorite event is the Saturday parade. Last year, cosplayers participated for the first time. These costumed citizens were back in 2014, in larger numbers than before!
This year, around 75 costumes and supporters marched. Their presence was organized by local group We Are Cosplay, in collaboration with ReedPOP. From Spider-Man to Shredder, Harry Potter to Cruelle de Vil, these characters braved the cold to delight fans and promote C2E2. Photographer Ronald Ladao was there to capture it all.
Check out these stellar photos. They really capture the celebratory vibe of the day. Comment if you see yourself, or your favorite hero!
