One of our favorite conventions each year is C2E2. Every year it is full of interesting panels, has many wonderful guests from a wide variety of media to meet, and best of all, an amazing contingent of cosplayers who show up each day to amaze us and bring us into the worlds we love! For each day of the convention we ran a Semi-Finals where you the viewers picked your favorites. Then we ran the Finals with your top choices for each day combined into one super poll. The finals have come to a close and once again for Chicago, we are ready to announce our C2E2 15: Battle of the Cosplayers Finals Poll winners!
Getting through the Semi-Finals is no easy feat, especially reaching the top of the poll. So before we move on to announce the winners of the Finals, we want to quickly recognize those that had the most votes in their respective Semi-Finals poll. Dredd Minion led the pack on Friday with 34.16%! The Spaceballs cosplayers took the lead on Saturday with 27.19%! Finally the duo of Destiny cosplayers on Sunday received 16.12%!
Now we are proud to announce the winners in the Finals that you have all chosen!
3rd with 8.25% of the votes, Ash!
Ash Ketchum of Pokémon meets Ashley Williams of Evil Dead. This is one of the best mash-ups we have ever seen. One crazy Ash running around the world of Pokémon with a chainsaw and boomstick? The Ghost type Pokémon better watch out because we’re pretty sure Ash is on his way to destroy them all. Just remember for all of your Pokémon needs shop smart. Shop S-Mart.
2nd with 22.94% of the votes, Harley Quinn!
Is there anyone more popular in the world of comics right now, or even on the same level as Harley Quinn? Deadpool maybe? Nah, Harley would just crush him with her giant hammer. She may get paired up with the Joker more often than that, but this cosplayer showed she certainly doesn’t need the clown prince of crime around for an awesome showing.
1st with 24.98% of the votes, Spaceballs!
A collection of cosplayers portraying one of the greatest spoof movies of all time by Mel Brooks? That’s even better than having your luggage combination set to 12345! Star Wars might be part of all our childhoods, but Spaceballs is right there with it for most of us as well. This was definitely the best Spaceballs cosplay ensemble we have ever seen and you all agreed by giving them the top spot. May the Schwartz be with you!
We want to congratulate our cosplay winners and thank all of our viewers that voted in the poll! Of course, a big thank you to all of the great Chicago cosplayers that came out and rocked our world at McCormick Place in downtown! We had an amazing time at C2E2 15 and look forward to making it back once again next year. If you enjoyed checking out our cosplay coverage, remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further updates. The next stop on our convention and cosplay tour will take us to Motor City Comic Con this coming weekend so make sure to stay tuned for some more great cosplay!
