The Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo came to a heroic conclusion on Sunday. I ended up wearing street clothes, as my feet would simply NOT accept my Daenerys shoes. This was likely for the best. In sneakers and jeans, I was able to maneuver through crowds, chase down cosplayers, and easily re-visit my favorite booths.
Galerie F got me again. They had the Fox Mulder partner piece to my Saturday purchase. BOOM- more money left me in the name of art.
This sent me on an X-Files kick. I ended up also purchasing 2 volumes of The X-Files Season 10 comics. Writer Joe Harris signed them- worth it. I at least avoided buying a Dana Scully FBI badge. I'm eventually going to make my own, like the uber-geek I am.
It's worth mentioning that Sunday was C2E2 Kids' Day. Not only were children everywhere, but adults brought their kid-friendly costumes. Doctor Whooves was just inside the front gate. DOZENS of Disney princesses were about to offer hugs. There were even some Rescue Rangers- relevant to us grown-up kids.
When I got home, I crashed and slept somewhere between 3 and 5 hours. I'm not sure a convention has ever wiped me out so thoroughly before. Note to self for next year: Pack a lunch in your purse or something; you can't do 3 days on Connie's and McDonald's. >_>
With all of the cosplay, shopping, art, and events, C2E2 was everything I'd hoped it would be. I can't wait for next year. Here are the photos:
Ta-da!! Thus concludes my C2E2 trilogy of coverage. Please share it like crazy- I've been working on it for days. :)
FYI, I won't be at ACen. Have fun, anime fans! I'll see you at other events and shows around Chicago, starting with my next GEEKend highlight post.
