C2E2 Weekend (Post 3 of 3)

I hope that as you read this, you’re healthy and staying home. In all of the Coronavirus Quarantine craziness, I forgot to post about our last day at C2E2!

Our final morning started with an awesome spotlight panel – more Mark Ruffalo – with Clare Kramer bonus! Click any image to start a slideshow you can scroll through.

After that awesome spotlight panel, we met up with my cousin’s hubby, Jason (how did I not get a photo of/with him?), and we made our way to the Family HQ area for the kids’ cosplay contest. There was some tough competition, but The Girl finished in the top 3 for her age group.

Hey – look at this fun image rounding as part of the new WordPress update!

Just as we finished up with the contest, In a last minute decision, The Girl’s friend from overnight camp showed up to join us for the day. They got to run off on their own while Jason and I wandered to check out last day shopping opportunities.

And of course, The Girl had to stop by her favorite booth one more time.

Our last event of the weekend was to watch a Cosplay Masquerade. We got there right at the end of the previous panel, and I saw Clare Kramer pop out to take a couple of selfies with the stage crew guys. I was so excited! This was my chance! Just before she turned to walk away, I called out, “Glorificus! and she waved at me. I walked up and told her how excited and surprised I was to find out this was her gig now, and that I was a huge Buffy fan. She thanked me and I asked if it’d be too much to ask for a selfie. She was more than happy to oblige and took my phone for the pose. I told her this was as exciting as the MarkRuffalo photo op from the day before. I don’t think she believed me, but said I was sweet to say so.

The Cosplay Masquerade was something else. The costumes were pretty darn amazing, but the novel part was that the entrants had to “perform” as their character. Some were good, but most were fodder for Simon Cowell. The one performance that really stood out for us was the group winner. They did a mashup of Rocky Horror and Doctor who that was absolutely brilliant (pun intended).

The group performance win was well deserved by this ensemble who brilliantly brought together The Time Warp with the wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff. The Girls definitely needed a pose with them.

And thus ended our great adventure into the world of C2E2. We are hoping to attend the Wizard World Convention in August, but we will have to see what pans out with the quarantine orders.

Next up, I hope to share with you how we’ve been passing our time in stay-at-home isolation.

Be well! Stay home! Save lives!
