I'm not literally from Chicago, but I'm er at least within the state lol.
Whenever, I get my hands on a cosplay that I like, I wear it. Great cosplay ideas are found at GoodWill for me. My latest cosplay was Shizuo from Durarara! with my gf as Celty.
I regularly go to ACen, but not this year since I'll be at the Philippines D:
For those ACen goers, have fun without me! x.x
Anyway, just dropping in for a greeting or two
