C2E2 2015: An Overview in Photos Part II

What is the one thing that will outlast con crud? Con coverage!* Yesterday we brought you Part I of our C2E2 photo coverage, and we return today to bring you but a fraction of the excitement we witnessed on the con floor. I am sad to say, that I did not glimpse the Indiana Jones cosplayer that carried a replica Arc of the Covenant, nor did we see the group of Fifth Element cosplayers (including Ruuu-by Rhod). But despite these missed connections, we still had a blast.

*Prolonged cases of con crud that outlive ones’ fond memories should be addressed immediately. A remedy that may decrease the side effects of con crud? Reliving the good times. Enjoy.
