Cosplay & Costume Highlights: Wizard World Chicago

It’s hard to tell for sure but it seemed like there was less cosplay at Wizard World than last year. Some of the costumes that were represented were still pretty stellar. Plenty of strong, capable ladies were walking around and of course Star Wars showed up in many forms.
