There are only so many places in the world you can dress up as a Disney princess or a villain from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” without anyone batting an eye, so it’s no surprise that countless cosplayers took advantage at the annual Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo this weekend.

The floor at McCormick Place was packed not only with pop culture fans looking to check out the latest and greatest, but sci-fi soldiers, ironclad monster hunters, comic book bad guys and others dressed up as their favorite characters.
