Last weekend I attended C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo). It’s the Chicago equivalent of Comic-Con.
One of my favorite weekends of the entire year, the event takes place in a massive convention center along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Nearly 90,000 people crowded the halls as they browsed tables featuring artists, comic book creators, authors, and actors. The line-up of speakers included Paul Rudd, Alicia Silverstone, David Tennant, Ralph Macchio, and many more.
I’ve gone to C2E2 several years in a row, and this time I went both Friday and Saturday. I love cosplay and enjoyed the chance to wear two different costumes!
On Friday, I dressed as Daenerys Targaryen (AKA Mother of Dragons) from Game of Thrones. (Day 2 costume reveal coming next week).
Here’s a pic of me with a Cersei Lannister look-alike and a Melisandre cosplayer.
I even brought along my little purple dragon whom I’ve nicknamed Li’l Drogon. I’m so excited for GOT to return in April.
Who is your favorite Game of Thrones character? Comment below.
My favorite character is Brienne of Tarth. Not only is she a badass warrior knight, but she also protects Sansa and Arya. And, she fought The Hound and won. Years ago, I met Gwendoline Christie at another convention but unfortunately didn’t get her photo! I sure wish I had.
She was really pleasant and friendly, and I was star-struck.
Stay tuned for more C2E2 pics next week!
