Wizard World Chicago is fast approaching. From August 23-26 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, you can see stars from your favorite shows and movies, comic book writers and Chicago Costume! We will have three booths at the convention to help you with any last minute convention needs and unique memorabilia you can take home.

If you're not sure what to wear to Wizard World, we got you covered. Here are some costume ideas based on the star-studded guest list at this year's convention.

Sam Heughan, Caitriona Balfe, Richard Rankin, Sophie Skelton, Lotte Verbeek and Graham McTavish from the hit Starz show "Outlander" will be at Wizard World Chicago doing autographs and photo ops. Diana Gaboldon, the author of the book that inspired the series, will also be in attendance.
