Tanya Tate at Exxxotica Expo Chicago on July 8

CHICAGO — Tanya Tate will offer free autographed 8x10 photos to cosplayers at the Exxxotica Expo Chicago, to be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. near O'Hare International Airport from Jul. 8-10. 

On Fri., Jul. 8, Tate will be giving away signed 8x10 photos to the first 25 cosplayers that come to her signing area at the show. Those who arrive dressed as a sexy superhero, anime character or recognizable pop-culture character have an opportunity to take home a Tate memento.

"I know that there is an anime convention running the same time as Exxxotica," Tate said. "So I thought I would do something fun and encourage Exxxotica attendees to dress up and show off their geeky side as well. Of course, I'll be suited up."

While at the Exxxotica Expo Chicago, Tate will also be judging the first ever Exxxotica Super Sexy Cosplay Contest. Tate, along with fellow adult performer Phoenix Marie, will act as a co-host of the event, which will give a participant a chance to win $500.00. 

On Jul. 8 at 5:30 p.m., Tate will be holding a seminar titled "Sexy, Fun, Different Cosplay: Spicing Up Your Costumes For Con." The seminar will offer tips on ways to make cosplay outfits sexier. For information, visit this link.

The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center located at 9291 Bryn Mawr Ave. in Rosemont.
