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.

Here were some of our favorite costumes from the weekend. All photographs were taken by Tyler LaRiviere for the Sun-Times.
