Cosplay Pics From C2E2

How come you aren't dressed up, right now?

They might as well have added a third “C” to C2E2’s name to reflect all the cosplay parading around the show. Of course, as this was the Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo, anime/manga characters didn’t comprise as a big portion of the selection and, thus, I don’t have as many photos to share with you lunatics as usual.

That’s fine, though. Quality over quantity, right? Look through the roll below and you’ll see fans expressing their love for BLEACH, NARUTO, FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST, POWER RANGERS and others in a fashion most creative and aesthetical.

+500 Honorary XP Points to whomever can identify all the characters here.

+1000 Honorary XP Points to those who cosplay themselves and can give real technical assessments of the craft here.

+9000 Honorary XP Points to the meanest, prettiest and baddest mofo - - low down and no doubt - -who spots and identifies the bad guy from the funkiest kung fu movie ever made.

Wow, the Shogun of Harlem? That's pretty fantastic, and surprisingly accurate! I hope there was at least one Bruce, that whole movie is a masterpiece.

@Wudz: You beat me to it. But, yeah, that was a very impressive piece of cosplay as Sho'Nuff.

It's the white Power Ranger! Oh god parts of my childhood are flashing before my eyes. I has a big shampoo bottle in the shape of the white ranger. That gets weirder the more I think about it.
