As I’ve previously said, Wizard World Chicago attendance was definitely lower this year, which meant less pictures. This will be my last batch of cosplay photos, but I did take video that I will attempt to edit later this week.

Overall, it was a fun event. My only complaint is about their choice of MC/host. Kato Kaelin is not a good host. He was frequently rude to guests and manhandled many of them. At one point, I was handed a cell phone to take a picture. As the cosplayers were all posing, Kato storms into the group, rudely grabs two of them and pulls them on stage, where they awkwardly stand with no idea why they are there. The band onstage didn’t have a clue either. In the meantime, I’m still standing there holding someone else’s phone. He needs instructions on manners, timing, and pop culture.
