On 29 March, 2015, Costumers With A Cause (Midwest) President Scott Whipple and Volo Auto Museum teamed up and provided an incredible day of Superheroes and Princesses for Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin residents to enjoy with a portion of the proceeds going to the St. Judes Research Hospital – thanks to the generosity of the folks at the Volo Auto Museum! This costumed event on Sunday was a precursor to the ‘Night at the Museum’ BIG EVENT at 7 p.m. on Friday, 3 April, 2015. This Sunday and the upcoming Friday, 3 April 2015 volunteer costumed charity events are to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Brian Grams, the owner of Volo Auto Museum has allowed Costumers With A Cause to use the museum as a venue for patrons to take photographs with SO MANY costumed characters during the charity walk fundraiser.
If you’re planning to be in the local area of Volo, Il on Friday, 3 April, 2015, come in and check out the cosplayers and costumers that will be dressed and ready to snap pics with you! Some of the expected cosplayers who will be posing by their respective cars will be: a Mad Max group, a Cinderella group, Ninja Turtles, TONS of Disney characters, Batman and Robin, Back to the Future, Aliens, Terminators, Ghostbusters, Avengers, the Blues Brothers, etc… It’s going to be huge and fantastic!
The Volo Auto Museum is a marvelous car museum with amazing auto collections to view, walk through and take pictures of. Some of their collections include Hollywood cars, Bizarre cars, Kids zone cars, cars of the stars, Duesenberg cars, theater cars, pre-war classics, early Ford’s, etc… It’s an intense attraction that is well worth the drive! The best part on Friday will be the costumers and cosplayers dressed up and standing by their prescribed cars where you can snap a picture with them!

Cosplayers, this group is SO fantastic for you to get involved in, especially if you like to volunteer with fellow costumers and truly ‘wear your costumes all year long!’ Seeing children’s eyes grow big when they see their favorite superhero or princess or movie character seemingly come to life in front of them is priceless! There are many divisions of Costumers With A Cause that you can join, just get online and look into your area and see if anything is available! This is a great group to meet new cosplay costumers, to work on costumes more than just for conventions, and get some great kudos when you’re dressed in your favorite getup!
