Smile Cosplayers in Illinois? :3

I was just curious to see if there are any other cosplayers in IL (around my area, preferably... I live in Mount Prospect now, which is about an hour away from Chicago). I know a few people from school who cosplay (I'm in the anime club X3), but I kinda feel awkward around them... They're kinda like the 'popular' kids, and I'm the shy kid who sits quietly in the corner and doesn't speak unless spoken to. XD Anyway, I was hoping to make some new friends, or maybe even form a cosplay group if enough people are interested. ^-^ Oh, I'm also going to ACen for the first time this year, so if anyone else is going, please let me know!

There's tons of cosplayers in IL around that area! When you go to Acen you will find tons of them. Are you on the Acen forums? That might help. I've been going for almost 10 years now *wow I feel old*. I live about an hour from Mt Prospect. but there's still a huge cosplay community around Chicago.

I'm about a half hour south of you, KiaraKunoichi. I live in Downers Grove, but since I'm in college most of the next four years will be spent in Louisiana. But I still wouldn't mind making new friends from my home state considering I'll be back for summer and winter breaks. Especially since I don't know anyone back at home that cosplays. :/

I live in Kankakee/momence. Its about an hour from chicago too. Ive been goin to ACEN for the past 3 years and its really fun and there are tons of people. I will be there again this year and i would be more than happy to be your cosplay friend. You will meet people and you should try finding cosplay meet-ups around you to meet new people. Theres less people than a convention so its less overwhelming. If you would like to meet up for ACEN PM me .
