We Went to C2E2: Costume Pic Roundup

The Guild at C2E2

Things have changed quite a bit since the last time I wrote for the blog.  For one thing, I no longer make my living by hiding under a bridge and collecting tolls from frightened peasants as they attempt to pass. Granted, a lot of that has to do with the fact that the city demolished my bridge...

Luckily, halloweencostumes.com recognized my ability to strike fear into the heart of my fellow man and I’m now the HR guy.  Wait…What?  Oh well, as long as my cruel reign of terror is allowed to continue, all will be fine. I may have "gone corporate," but I can guarantee you that one thing hasn’t changed: my love of comic conventions!  As a result, I left my cube and traveled to Illinois for the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, also known as C2E2!

(I personally think they were trying to get rid of HR so they could set up a scooter jousting tournament after I told them it was too unsafe.)  Oh well, if it means more conventions for me then they can joust all they want. Anyway, since we recently passed the halfway to Halloween mark, convention season has just begun, and we happen to sell costumes, why don’t we share some of my favorite cosplay pictures from C2E2?

Joe Vampire is the evil HR guy at the company.  He once trained people in the art of phlebotomy but that’s not how he got his pseudonym.  He's not quite sure how it was bestowed upon him, as a matter of fact.  Because he’s in HR, and therefore has no friends, he retreats into a world of horror movies, video games, beards, beers, bears, black metal, and playing guitar for Old Towne Ghosts.
