Today is the second day of C2E2 2017 and I’m super psyched for the costume contest tonight!
Saturday is by far the most popular day of the expo, and the crowds were pretty impressive even an hour before the floor was set to open. TheC2E2 Crown Championship of Cosplay begins at 7PM tonight, a cosplay competition which draws professional cosplayers from around the world. With a $10,000 first place cash prize, it’s easy to see why this is considered the weekend’s biggest event!
Even before the contest, plenty of cosplayers display their costumes on the show floor in between checking out the vendor booths and panels. There were A LOT of familiar faces from the Star Wars universe and a few different characters from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Gender bending seemed to be a popular theme this year as well, with plenty of gentlemen and ladies putting a fresh spin on well-loved characters.
Here’s a few individuals who were graciously willing to pose for photos 🙂
