Shaz, FeyNouveau, and I attended Wondercon 2014, held April 18-20. We only went for one day though, so it was a very rushed day. We only attended one panel, and then spent the rest of the time in the dealer’s room, which was kind of a bummer. Also, I am burning out on taking cosplay pics, which depresses me. I love cosplay, but it’s hard finding ones that I really like, and then I always find pics later of ones that I missed out on. Plus other people take way better pics than I do. Anyway, more after the jump.
My Comic-Con haul! (and I didn’t bust the credit card)
Normally not a fan of the giant bags, but c’mon… it’s Adventure Time!!
More after the jump…
This is the first year I cosplayed at SDCC. And a big group cosplay, too! We are cosplaying Adventure Time, with Princess Bubblegum, Lumpy Space Princess, Simon (descending into the madness of the Ice King), Marceline, and Fionna (with a handmade Cake). Peebs lost her crown TWICE somehow. LSP is 80s version (which was super fun). Simon was pretty popular. Everywhere we went, kids loved him and wanted their picture taken with him. And he wasn’t in his full blown Ice King form, but they still would yell, “ICE KING.”
I was also asked if my wig was my real hair, which was weird. I wish. That’d be some rad hair.
Anyway, jump for more cosplay at SDCC!
A series of the awesome displays companies put up for SDCC.
Hit the jump for more!
I was grumpy/stressed during this entire convention. You can tell because I didn’t take a single cosplay photo. That happens sometimes, and I always regret it later. Plus I ended up getting sick. Really sorry about not getting any cosplay though. Boo.
One thing I really really hate about Fanime, which automatically starts the con off on a bad foot is their HORRIBLE badge system. 40K people attend, and they have seriously about FIVE people checking people in. By hand. Very slowly. Lines to get in take 2-3 hours. Standing in the sun. It is AWFUL. I’ve been going for ten years now, and watched it get worse and worse as the con gets more and more popular, and they still do the SAME THING. All of my other cons have switched to barcodes. YES it means you don’t get a nice fancy badge because the badge is printed up on the spot, but hey, if it means waiting in a 20 minute line instead of a frigging three hour line, then BY ALL MEANS, switch to paper badges!!
Anyway, on to the pics.
Uhhhh… so yeah, this blog’s been sorta comatose as life stuff happened and I just lost interest in posting anything. But I just got back from SDCC and I still have pics on my camera from Wondercon, Fanime, and AX, so I figured I’d post some stuff up from those. First up is Wondercon, held in Anaheim for the 2nd year in a row, from March 29-31.
Forget Gotham and Metropolis! Meet LA’s vigilante, Manhunter!
