C2E2, the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, brought the worlds of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga and video games back to McCormick Place — and also featured the Crown Championships of Cosplay, where veterans of the cosplay circuit, along with amateurs, competed for $10,000 in cash and prizes.

Here’s a look at who wore what on Saturday night:
