I loved Child's Play. Chucky is a classic horror icon. I must say, Chucky never looked better than last year at Wizard World Chicago.
Chucky was actually cosplayer Larissa Paige. From Salt Lake City, UT, Paige has won several awards for her cosplay. Paige is known for many gender-bending cosplays, such as Chucky. She also takes established characters and puts her creative spin on them, as well as creating original characters. Paige is a topnotch coplayer.
At Wizard World 2021, Paige was one of the most popular celebrity guests and she worked hard to make it fun for all. Every day, she had a new cosplay costume.
That was the last year for Wizard World, because Fan Expo bought the convention. The Wizard World spirit will now lie through Fan Expo conventions, which is great news for all.
I expect Fan Expo Chicago to be big. as the debut event, it has to wow fans. Several celebrities have already confirmed for Fan Expo Chicago, including Sean Astin, Brian O'Halloran, Elijah Wood, Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes and more. Fan Expo hits Chicago July 7-10. I'll be "On the Beat" enjoying a great convention.
