C2E2 is officially over. The cosplayers have taken a bow and attendees are sorting through the bags of loot they scored throughout the weekend. It's easy to find vinyl figures, themed T-shirts and discounted trade paperbacks among the stack of items for sale at the convention, but an observant shopper can walk away with some extremely strange items. We walked the floor and searched for the weirdest stuff that you could purchase at this year's C2E2, from Spock beer koozies to Nintendo cartridge flasks.

You already overuse the poop emoji, so you might as well own a plush version of it.

Why don't Putt-Putt Troopers like golfing on Tattooine? Because it's one giant sand trap.

There's no better way to honor the memory of the late Leonard Nemoy than by sippping a Vulcan ale sheathed in this Spock koozie.
