Sad Chewbacca, and 11 Other Animated Characters at Emerald City Comicon

The 14th annual cavalcade of cosplay was everything we expected it would be.

This weekend marked Seattle’s 14th annual Emerald City Comicon, during which the Washington State Convention Center flooded with a cavalcade of cosplayers. Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren was there to capture just a sample of the dare-we-say super costumes on display. And, no, Chewbacca isn’t really sad. Just taking a break.
