C2E2 is always a great convention to attend.
Once again, Chicago Force had the honor of running an activity for the kids on Sunday. Here are some pictures from the activity. Unfortunately, there are only a few, as we were swarmed and didn’t get to take to many.
Here’s some shots from the show floor!
And you can’t go without seeing lots of costumes:
And even though it’s in the kids area, you HAVE to check out the circus.
Chicago Force will be running a Kid’s Activity at C2E2 on Sunday, April 8th! Join us there!

Today was a big day. Not only would it be our first panel, covering Kenobi by John Jackson Miller, but it would also be when we held our raffle to benefit the Cystic Fibrous Foundation.
Before all the fun, a few of us went on a scavenger hunt

The morning of the 25th, the first day of C2E2 was quiet. Little did we know how much would change for us by the end of the day.
Getting the booth ready in the morning.
Of course, the big galaxy-shaking news dropped that day, “The EU was dead, long live the EU!” We received the news that the Star Wars EU would now be considered Legends, and a new EU would start in the fall. This made the Del Rey panel that day a not-to-be missed event. We went out in, well, Force, and listened to the panel with rapt attention. New Star Wars author Kevin Hearne was there. And he had a book signing at the Del Rey booth right after. All in all, a fun eventful day.

Kevin Hearne was awesome!
