Straight from the pages of my wife’s Star Wars Expanded Universe bookshelves and into the world of Star Wars Rebels, it’s that master planner Grand Admiral Thrawn and an Ysalamir.
Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:
It’s that time again! The eighth annual Chicago Comic and Entertainment Exposition (“C2E2″) just wrapped another three-day extravaganza of comic books, actors, creators, toys, props, publishers, freebies, Funko Pops, anime we don’t recognize, and walking and walking and walking and walking…
…and cosplay. Lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of cosplay. Of course we took photos, but we missed much impressive handiwork, partly because we spent a lot of time in lines and partly because we hadn’t rested yet from the previous weekend’s Indiana Comic Con and feared overextending ourselves to the point of burnout.
But! These are the costumes we’re glad we didn’t miss from the worlds of animation, gaming, movies, and what I’m being told is one extremely popular webcomic. (Special thanks to my son for naming assistance with a few of these.)
More Star Wars, naturally. I’m assuming everyone can name these action figures by now?
Also from a film everyone’s seen, Drs. Ian Malcolm and Alan Grant from Jurassic Park.
He’s David Pumpkins. Any questions?
Belle, star of the runaway smash Beauty and the Beast, and Snow White, waiting for her live-action upgrade as soon as Disney figures out how to do the “Dwarfs” part without inciting rage-filled thinkpieces.
Newt Scamander representing for the wizarding world of Harry Potter.
I’m so old and odd, I saw Sam Raimi’s Darkman in theaters and liked it. Too bad Liam Neeson couldn’t have done ten of those instead of the Taken series.
Ferris Bueller returns to Chicago, probably up to no good again.
Plotting revenge against the Powerpuff Girls are Mojo Jojo and…yes, that’s HIM. The one at right is…we’re not sure. Harvey Bullock, Mouse Detective?
One-Punch Man from the anime satire One-Punch Man starring One-Punch Man as One-Punch Man. My son tells me I’d like it.
He’s David S. Pumpkins! ANY QUESTIONS?
Skeletor (who was a hoot and on a roll in person) kicks off our gaming section with special guest Blackwatch Reyes from Overwatch.
Two for any gamers past and present, 60 and under: a Starwoman and Coin Block from Super Mario Bros.
From the Department of Games I’ve Played as an Adult: one of the creepy Splicers from Bioshock.
One of the most twisted Bioshock nemeses, the artist Sander Cohen. I lost a trophy because I eliminated him a bit too soon.
Same department, different game: a Psycho from Borderlands. Love the game-accurate thick-lined detailing.
Another, spikier Borderlands Psycho along with (I think?) Commander Shepard or a coworker from Mass Effect.
Ahri from the online game League of Legends, complete with Orb of Deception.
Saber from the Japanese visual novel Fate/stay night.
I’M DAVID PUMPKINS! ANY QUESTIONS?
Last cosplayer we saw on our way back to the car, and one of the finest: Moana!
