All the best of pop culture at Pheasant Run show this weekend
Aisles of pop culture were on display Saturday as the Chicago Pop Culture Con kicked off at The Pheasant Run Resort mega Center in St. Charles.
The multigenre event, which is expected to draw more than 3,000 visitors before this weekend is over, offered a little bit for everyone Saturday.
People in cosplay costumes wandered the booths checking out rare comic books, toys, Legos, publishers, artists, stars, sports memorabilia and anything fan related.
Liza Thompson of California was happy to pick out a nutcracker from Dead End Doll Factory of Aurora for her son.
"I have bought him a nutcracker every year since he was born 27 years ago, and it's hard to find something original," Thompson said.
Admission is $12 and the event, which started in 2016, is open again Sunday, beginning at noon.
Celebrity guests on Sunday are to include game designer Brian Colin, former Chicago Bear Chris Zorich, hip-hop artist Ambush Zin, and rock band Kid Yuki and The Otakus.
