Check Out Friday's Amazing Cosplay from Chicago's C2E2 2023

The weather outside was frightful - with tornado watches and warnings throughout the day - but inside the gargantuan McCormick Place convention center in Chicago the nerds were gathered together to do the three things we all love most - shop for nerdy stuff to add to our collections, go see panels with our favorite nerdy actors and creators, and show off all our finest cosplay!

We've been on site with this convention since its beginnings, and through COVID-19, and we're finally seeing that nature - or nerdture, is returning. Friday's crowd was impressive, and so was the cosplay, so even though we don't seem to be at full force yet, we're definitely getting there.

Enjoy a heaping helping of the finest cosplay we saw on the floors Friday and make sure to keep your eyes on this page, as Saturday the Crown Championships of Cosplay return to the Main Stage, with regional, national and international cosplay awards being given out - meaning you'll see the very best of the best cosplay out there.

Staff photographers: Aaron Cynic, Julian Ramirez and Marielle Bokor
