Wizard World Chicago 2018 Photos, Part 2 of 6: Movie Cosplay!

Beetlejuice ghosts!

Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:

It’s that time again! This weekend my wife and I made another journey up to Wizard World Chicago in scenic Rosemont, IL, where we found ample enjoyment and new purchases alongside peers and aficionados of comics and genre entertainment. Once again we lead off a new convention miniseries with the mandatory cosplay galleries. We captured whoever we could while wandering the show floor Friday and Saturday…

Rather than piling 50-60 photos into a single entry that takes weeks to scroll through, our process of arbitrary gallery groupings continues, this time with a batch of characters from assorted movies, both live-action and animated. Some are admittedly movie-adjacent, but the point is costumes. Enjoy!


A different kind of spirit: a pair of Pennywises from Stephen King’s It.

Georgie Denbrough!

Li’l Georgie Denbrough, floating up here.


Ghostface, leader and sole member of the Occupy Sidney movement.

Cruella DeVil!

Jack Skellington and Sally!

Ripley and Alien!

An awfully chummy Ripley and xenomorph remind viewers that Alien Resurrection is canon whether they like it or not.

Sith dude 1!

I know zilch about Star Wars New Canon outside the movies, so for all I know this Sith could be on the list.

Sith dude 2!

Or they’re both “Bring Back Legends” characters that my wife never mentioned. Or she mentioned them but didn’t show me photos.

Christopher Robin!

From the new hit film, Christopher Robin with pals Pooh and Piglet.

Mad Moxxi and Hellboy!

The soon-to-be-rebooted Hellboy hanging out with Mad Moxxi from Borderlands.

Lady Liberty!

You might remember Lady Liberty from such films as Planet of the Apes, Cloverfield, X-Men, and Ghostbusters 2.

Tick Elasti-Girl Bob the Builder!

Elastigirl gets a helping hand from TV’s the Tick and Bob the Builder,

Edna Mode and Dash!

Also from The Incredibles: Edna Mode and Dash, naturally looking fabulous.
