The Fandom’s C2E2 Recap

The Fandom spent the weekend at C2E2, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo.

From crowning the World Champion of Cosplay to hosting Nerd Speed Dating and panels, C2E2 kept fans and artists busy. The convention’s vast Artist Alley was consistently crowded with eager fans, and the show’s photo ops included stars such as the iconic Stan Lee.

During a Stranger Things panel, Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) spoke about her fun-filled relationships with her cast mates. She (adorably!) mentioned that Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) is one of the only people who can really make her laugh!

On Saturday night, fans watched as Okkido Cosplay won the Crown Championships of Cosplay 2017 as Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor. Outside of the competition, the whole expo was full of amazing cosplays! Take a look at some of the pictures below.
