The cosplay game on Sunday was still quite strong

Sunday was the last day of FAN EXPO Chicago, and while the crowds slowly dwindled later in the day, there was still plenty of shopping going on. I certainly took advantage of the day to do some last-minute shopping, including revisiting booths I’d seen all weekend, but hadn’t yet purchased anything from. I even purchased some fudge from Chocolate Moonshine Co. for a friend that had seen them on a TikTok I had posted! Even though I thought I had seen every single booth of the course of the weekend, I still managed to discover one or two new ones that I just never seemed to cross paths with earlier.

The cosplay game on Sunday was still quite strong, with many bringing out show-stopping cosplays to exhibit on the Cosplay Red Carpet. Here are all the cosplay photos I managed to capture over the course of the day.

All in all, FAN EXPO Chicago was a fairly enjoyable convention. There are absolutely quite a number of kinks to work out, which we’ve shared in our previous articles and Reptile discussed in his review, and can hopefully be improved on for next year. However, it seemed to me like many people enjoyed their time there overall. For me, the thing I most enjoyed was the opportunity to see so many of my friends again in one place. It was my first convention since early 2020, and I can’t wait to attend the next one!
