So this year, Wondercon was held in the O.C., just right across from Disneyland. Normally this event is held in San Francisco at the Moscone Center, but there was construction in the center that prevented Wondercon from using the facilities this year. Their loss up in the Bay Area meant a new event in Southern California.
The best way to describe Wondercon is that it is like a smaller version of Comic Con. It kind of reminded me of the Comic Con from years ago when it wasn’t as crowded and you didn’t have to purchase tickets half a year in advance. But at Wondercon you still had the great panels, a smaller masquerade on Saturday, and the many cosplayers dressed as their favorite characters. Fun times. I think I have prepared myself for the big one in San Diego now.
