Zero tolerance: Naming my cosplay harasser

NOTE: Comments on this post are temporarily set to CLOSED, meaning they must be moderated before appearing. I want to publicly thank C2E2, Chicago’s premiere comic convention, for action they took this afternoon.

Final thoughts and cosplay from C2E2 2015 - SUNDAY

This Captain Marvel made some amazing fabric choices. <3
My C2E2 coverage is finally wrapping up this morning. I had to sleep FOREVER before I could even think about blogging. I crashed for 3 hours right after the show yesterday, then slept for another 10 at night. Being a children’s superhero is a BIG job. Jess and Kat (my photography help this weekend) joined...

Super cosplay from C2E2 2015 - SATURDAY

Yesterday's GGC photography volunteer, Jess, being photographed by today's volunteer, Kat. I LOVE YOU GIRLS!
I made a bad choice at C2E2. I bought a new cubicle’s worth of art right at the very beginning of the day. Thus, I was stuck hauling my purchases around for hours. I was dressed as Daenerys (fairly popular) and taking photos of my own, as well. I could have used four more arms.... Read more »

The hottest C2E2 2015 after parties to attend this GEEKend

If it wasn’t already obvious, I will be at C2E2 all weekend. I wasn’t excited about the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo until this afternoon. It’s… actually an incredible (and short) story. As of this morning, I was still unemployed. I had put a spending freeze on cosplay, and had no financial wiggle room. C2E2 wasn’t... Read more »

C2E2 2013 Recap: People-Watching Instead of Programming

A little Spider-man and a big Spider-man.  After this photo was taken, a medium Spider-man walked up.  NOT KIDDING.  THESE THINGS HAPPEN AT C2E2.
A week has passed since C2E2 2013.  I’ve had time to reflect, to rejuvenate… to heal the huge blisters on my feet from my Envy Adams boots (attractive, I know).  This year’s Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo was the biggest yet.  It was a BLAST meeting so many of Chi-town’s geeks.  Before the photos, though,...
