Papa Bear

We are hyped to welcome one of Chi-Town’s finest to join our cosplay lineup! His activity and contribution to the community include founding Chicago POC Cosplayers, an online community for creatives of color and the nerds who love them, and bringing his own special brand of family cosplay with his young daughter joining him in many of his cosplay ensembles!

Chris “Papa Bear” English began his journey into the wild world of cosplay with a small local con in 2012 and has been hooked ever since. Fueled by the love for the craft, and a passion to spread diversity and inclusion Papa Bear has been heavily involved in the cosplay community as Co-founder of Chicago P.O.C.
