C2E2 is a world of comics, collectibles, celebrities, and cosplay. An endless sea of activity where one can have their memorabilia signed by their favorite authors and artists. A pop-culture wonderland where you can pull up a chair and play retro games with fellow gamers while taking a break between eating and shopping. I was a floor warrior searching for a righteous cause in this apocalyptic land where only the strong who have comfy shoes, a good super hero shirt, a light backpack, a full battery in camera, and those who are willing to sacrifice next months mortgage will survive.
This was a special C2E2 for me on a personal level. My daughter was able to attend her first comic con. Witnessing her wide eyes and facial expression of pure awe and magic was priceless. Which was why I decided to pass on the usual celebrity signatures and panels. Just enjoyed the entire day with family on the floor as I went from booth to booth. Some of the best of C2E2’s eye candy were easily the Diamond Select booth. Particularly, the Ghostbusters Select line, along with the DC and Marvel statues. Seeing their amazing detail in person was impressive. Also worth mentioning, Tony Starks wrecked race car from Iron Man 2 was a nice surprise.
If you have never attended C2E2, you might want to consider Chicago for your next vacation and attend. The con only continues to evolve and amaze. Enjoy the floor pics!
