Looks of the Con: Our Favorite Cosplay From C2E2!

Party on, Darth! Who says nerds don’t throw the coolest parties? We just wrapped up a weekend at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo where we threw a party of our own and had a booth with Heavy Metal Magazine + Dark Matter Coffee! And that booth was a lot like having a front row ticket to a weekend-long cosplay runway show, because when it comes to cosplay in the Windy City? C2E2 is the best in the midwest.

From cosplay to some of our favorite geeky Threadless tees, here are just a few of our favorite looks from the convention!

Besides seeing some amazing costumes, there was some serious Threadspotting going on at C2E2 2017! We love seeing Threadless tees out in the wild, especially the geeky ones (*cough cough* like these!) Here are a few Threadless designs we caught at the con!
