Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:
It’s that time again! My wife Anne and I just got home from the tenth annual Chicago Comic and Entertainment Exposition (“C2E2″), 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. Each year C2E2 keeps inching ever closer to its goal of becoming the Midwest’s answer to the legendary San Diego Comic Con and other famous conventions in larger, more popular states. We missed the first year, but have attended every year since 2011 as a team…
…and sooner or later we run out of cosplay photos as a team. It’s time to share all the cosplay that’s fit to print and left to post. Same disclaimers apply as in Part Two. Enjoy! Some more!
At most cons we end up with a small selection of photos I like to call “Stump the Olds”, in which we share photos of costumes that we thought looked somewhere between fancy and ingenious, and we took their picture even though we have absolutely no idea what character we’re looking at. If someone recognizes any of our next three subjects and can broaden our horizons by identifying them, that would be tremendously appreciated. I’m not quite satisfied with posting blind, unlabeled, anonymous cosplay pics even though thousands of convention-cosplay photogs super-love doing exactly that on Instagram all the time. I aspire to be at least a smidgen better than that if someone’ll help cure my ignorance. Much obliged!
