WonderCon 2015 Cosplay – Gallery 3

WonderCon is Southern California’s debut comic convention of the year and the first big venue for cosplayers to come out of their winter workshops and debut their latest costumes.  Countless hours go into these immaculate costumes and the hard work never goes un-noticed.  This year we were lucky enough to have several photographers roaming the floors and fountains of the Anaheim Convention center snapping pictures like crazy for us, and now we get to share those photos with you!

Today Hillary Papirio‘s galleries join’s Ariana Hester‘s as we give you more photos from WonderCon 2015!

Photo Gallery: AJ’s Kids Crane Con

For the 13th year, AJ of Energy 103.7 camped out on top of a crane in Mission Valley for a week to raise money and toys for Rady Children’s Hospital. But this was the first year that a geektastic convention surrounded the crane for a day, with cosplayers and vendors and panels of nerd-knowledge helping to bring in the crowds.

Comic Issues and Pixelated Geek ran a booth and recorded a panel live in front of an awesome audience, and NintenDiego shared the booth and ran an epic Super Smash Bros. 3DS tournament. Check out the photo gallery of all the fun!

Comikaze 2014 Photo Gallery

With the ringing of the bell that is Comikaze 2014, the con season comes to a close for southern California. Cosplayers will hang their spandex for the winter months while they hibernate and work on their costumes for 2015. When all is said and done we would be hard-pressed to ask for a better send-off than the only convention with Stan Lee’s mark of approval.

With room still to grow, Comikaze stands as a strong and innovative con thats quickly become a premier attraction. Even with other local conventions within driving distance like Long Beach Comic-Con and WonderCon, Comikaze creates a unique experience with guests like John Barrowman, the cast members of Game of Thrones,  a reunion of My Little Pony cast members, and their annual Epic Cosplay Contest and geek fashion shows, Comikaze seems to have an edge that keeps them ahead of the curve when it comes to conventions.

Now, how about that cosplay…

2014 Long Beach Comic Con Gallery

This year, the typical Southern California “Fall” heatwave broke for one amazing weekend of perfect weather as another Long Beach Comic Con beckoned their geeky and nerdy brethren for two days of comic book goodness.  Those who were able to attend the con helped to make it the most successful year in the LBCC’s short history to date.  This year everything was bigger, from the cosplay, to the vendors and artists, to the top notch programming, including the launching of The Dwayne McDuffie Award, a special commendation that’s dedicated to celebrating diversity in comics, digtial or print.

[SDCC 2014] All Those Wonderful Toys

In addition to the cosplayers, celebrities, panels, trailers, and parties of San Diego Comic-Con, there’s one thing we can’t forget: all those wonderful toys. And books, stickers, clothes, trinkets, statues, figures, and every other cool geek item you can buy on the giant sales floor.

We’ve collected together a few photos of the collectibles we liked best, the stuff we’d want to decorate our own geek lairs.

Gam3rCon: why we need small conventions

Gam3rCon: why we need small conventions

The 2014 San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone, and in its wake we’re left with a sense of longing, despair, and relief. To those of us lucky enough to attend SDCC we all know what it’s like going through the process of registering a Member ID, checking Comic-Con’s website everyday, and sitting in virtual waiting rooms for hours upon hours in the hopes of getting a ticket to paradise. But we also know the pains of being on our feet for the entire day, of carrying bags filled with free stuff we’re going to throw away after a month because we don’t remember what any of it was to begin with, of smelling other convention goers who skipped taking a shower that morning because they had to be in a panel, and of the dreaded convention flu. Yes, all of these things make the experience of Comic-Con memorable.

But of course, anybody and everybody who attends SDCC is susceptible to what I like to call the “Wrath of Con,” which is just a modified version of Murphy’s Law: anything that can go wrong at a convention, will go wrong at a convention or because of the convention. And when things do go wrong, you’ll look for help from one of the many security guards or volunteers who will promptly tell you to go elsewhere if you need help or ignore you entirely. It’s not their fault of course, they have a lot of things to worry about during the convention. And catering to every whim of every attendee is something they simply cannot do.
