The 2nd annual Wizard World Comic Con came through this past weekend and packed the Sacramento Convention Center full of cosplayers, gamers and fan girls and boys alike. Many people who inhabit the convention are fans of video games, sci-fi television and anything fantasy. The word cosplay comes from the words costume and play. People attending love to dress up as their favorite characters as a kind of performance art.
