Wizard World Chicago 2015 Photos, Part 4 of 7: Last Call for Cosplay

Daft Punk!

Half of Daft Punk welcomes you to the party!

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:

It’s that time of year again! Anne and I are at Wizard World Chicago in scenic Rosemont, IL, where we’re so far having a blast even though parts of it resemble hard work and our feet feel battle-damaged after two days of endless walking, standing, lining up, shuffling forward in cattle-call formation, and scurrying toward exciting people and things…

My wife and I took an okay number of photos over the course of our three-day stay and will once again be sharing the most usable over the next several entries.

Tonight’s episode: all the usable WWC 2015 cosplay photos I didn’t already post. If you’re not here, we’re sorry we missed you. We did the best we could on Friday; we spent most of Saturday in lines; and by Sunday I eased down because I was sick of living life through a narrow viewfinder.

Anyway: yay costumes! Enjoy more!

(With special thanks to my son for naming assistance with several pics in this entry.)


Shego from Kim Possible.

Wednesday Addams!

Wednesday Addams believes she’s found her next victims.

Hitman: Agent 47!

Agent 47, star of several Hitman games and, somehow, two motion pictures.


Nergal from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.


Vegeta returns after dumping Deadpool (see Part 2) with her new teammates Spider-Man, old pal Goku, and Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat.

White Mushroom!

A White Mushroom from Kingdom Hearts, shocked at the news that KH3 just might be released before the end of the world.

Jason Voorhees!

Jason Voorhees is about as close as we ever got to the Bruce Campbell Fest horror section on the second floor.


Leonardo brings his trusty swords and an unarmed brother carrying only a tube of radioactive goop. Maybe it’s the long-lost Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle they call Pollock.

The next three pics are brought to you by the Department of Characters I Don’t Recognize. If you, the Viewers at Home, know any of these faces that I don’t, please feel free to chime in and teach me a lesson. Thanks in advance!


Alucard from Hellsing duels a bazooka-wielding warrior, and the fate of the Mystery Machine hangs in the balance.

Stilt Monster!

Stilt Monster roams around the panel rooms, preying upon unseated bystanders.

Flowery Archer!

I wrote down “Flowery Archer” in hopes that someone would come to mind later. Alas, I remain stumped.

Despicable Me!

Gru from Despicable Me refuses to have a good time, while a clingy Minion hangs in the balance.

Celebrity Jeopardy Burt Reynolds!

Straight out of SNL “Celebrity Jeopardy!”, it’s Burt Reynolds, a.k.a. “Turd Ferguson”, who probably thinks he’s in line to see Jaws.

Addams Family!

Another Wednesday Addams accompanies her father Gomez. This was the very last non-blurry cosplay pic we snapped on Sunday. And then we left, drove home for three hours, and died.

That’s all for costumes, but that’s not all for our Wizard World Chicago experience. We did a lot more than just watch other people enjoy themselves. Most of the time, I mean.
