Our Epic Summer!

We Are Cosplay has had an amazing summer thanks to our all of our awesome partners and members.

Screen Shot 2015-09-27 at 8.12.56 PMWe spent a lot of time with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital including attending their Superhero Week and hosting our first Free Comic Book day at the hospital thanks to the kind donations from Dark Tower Comics.  Make-a-Wish Foundation reached out to us to help delivery C2E2 tickets to Eric DellaTorre. We are super excited to be assisting with his super fantastic wish and our currently working with one of our members to create a very special costume for him. Join us to cheer him on.

Summer is also a great time for movies! We had lots of great meet and greets at Hollywood Palms including Age of Ultron 3D (video), Ant-Man (video), and Fantastic Four. Stay tuned for some VERY exciting end of year movie meet and greets.

You may have caught us at Indian Trails Library, Gail Borden Library, and Orland Park Public Library. We also did an really fun event in Tinley Park where we paired up with artist painting comic book themed benches! And of course, we hung out with our friend Boomer at the Schaumburg Boomer’s stadium for Superhero night.

We’re gearing up for Fall which means lots of costume fun, preparing for this year’s Cospys, and of course STAR WARS!
