If you’ve been following @pixlr on Instagram for any length of time, you probably see a bunch of cosplay photos pop up in our feed at certain times of the year. We’re proud sponsors at events like NYCC, ECCC, and C2E2, which is Chicago’s very own Comic Con event. Well… it’s that time again. It’s con season! We’ll be kicking it off this week in Chicago.
We’re an Associate Sponsor of the C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay, which is perhaps the thing we enjoy the most at these events. The creativity and talent that goes into making top-notch costumes is incredibly impressive, and as sponsors we get to meet all of the contestants, have them pose for a photo shoot, and ask them how they fabricated all of the neat details of their cosplay. We’re shipping our favorite photographer Michael in from New York for the event. In addition to photographing the Championships, he’ll be sharing his (frankly very impressive) skills by capturing free photos of our favorite cosplayers in our booth. If you’ll be at C2E2 this weekend, please stop by Booth #619 anytime this Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (March 18-20) and strike a pose for us. As always, we compile the photos in the ever-growing Pixlr Cosplay Gallery, which offers high-res downloads so you can grab a high quality image to keep forevermore.
As usual, we will be sharing our booth with SketchBook, our favorite friends (and office mates). And as usual, they will have very talented artists showing off their drawing skills. But this time around we will also have a live Twitch stream of the event. We’ll be popping in from time to time and we’ll probably even be showing off some of the excellent cosplay in our booth, so if you’re a Twitch devotee, follow SketchBook on Twitch to be notified when they start broadcasting.
