Geeks A Gogo stopped by Wizard World Chicago 2016 on Thursday night to get a taste of what is in store for this weekend. The event kicked off on Thursday afternoon, but goes through Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (August 19th, 20th, and 21st) at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. This year, the convention takes up 3 halls, with two big floors on ground level, and another hall on the second floor that's mostly dedicated to video and tabletop gaming.
Here are some pics from the first day of the convention:
First off, we got a lot of great pictures of cosplayers:
As usual, there is a slew of vendors and artists there selling all kinds of comics and other crafts:
The top level has some awesome booths this year--including some incredible things from Life Size Prop Shop:
And we're hoping to hit up the Paint-and-Take before the weekend is out:
And of course, there's the celebrities. We had the chance to talk to the Hulk himself--Mr. Lou Ferrigno. Check back for our upcoming interview.
You can also see Jason Mewes, Bruce Campbell, Jason David Frank, Ralph Macchio, Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, David Duchovney, Gillian Anderson and more celebs this weekend!
