ComicUI has been to C2E2 2014 and made it back in one piece. Sure, there are times we thought that wasn’t possible, but we’ve found very little gets in our way. We also wanted to improve our exposure at the event too and decided that we should give you a look at what we saw there!

Every year, we see other news sites post photos of cosplayers, people who dress up for conventions as their favorite characters. It never has been my favorite thing, because the Cons aren’t about the spectators to me, they’re about the exhibitors who go and put themselves out there and we have some pretty extensive coverage of that later this week. There were hundred of people in costume, some were spot on and some were very….not. We did manage to catch a few via photographs, but this is not representative to the community as a whole.

Come back each day throughout the week as we unveil a new gallery of awesomeness from our time at C2E2. Until then, here are some candid photos from Chicago’s Comic and Entertainment Expo 2014 edition!
