Recap: Wizard World Comic Con Chicago 2017

Team Gregula has just taken over Wizard World Comic Con Chicago and I have to say we had a fang-tastic time over the weekend of August 24-27. This con really is a way to get thru the dog days of summer!

We started out Thursday afternoon at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL with a visit to the virtual reality school bus of Stephen Kings “IT” (2017). This was a seated experience with VR technology taking you through the sewers of Derry, Maine to escape the clutches of the evil Pennywise the Clown.

Saturday night there was a showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show on the big screen hosted by Barry Bostwick aka Brad. There was a live shadow group that performed the scenes and lots of cosplayers including Da Count and I as Transylvanian partiers!

Speaking of cosplayers, there were plenty roaming the halls of the Stephens Center.
