WonderCon 2017: Part One

Share This Post

WonderCon is hand’s-down, our favorite con of the year.  We were so disappointed last year when it was held in Los Angeles at the Convention Center.  This year, however, it was back home in Anaheim at their Convention Center.

With two hotels, the Hilton and the Marriott, right next to the Convention Center, the con has a real “nerd camp” feel to it.

Day One: Cosplay and Hitting the Floor!


For our first cosplay, we cosplayed Kevin the Receptionist and Holtzmann from “Ghostbusters”.  “Ghostbusters” was one of our favorite movies of last year, and we were super excited to cosplay characters from this film.

We also got to hit the con floor for the first time.  Every year, this con takes over more and more of the Convention Center.  This year was no exception.  The floor had a nice variety of booths.  There was a lot of great fashion, including the company I work for, Hero Within.  We previewed our summer collection to great feedback from our customers.

Day Two: Marvel Group Photo and Cosplay Photo Shoot

Day two of our adventure included the Marvel group photo shoot, which is always a highlight of our cons.

We wore our updated “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” cosplays.

There was quite a turnout:

The Guardians group was all girls, which was awesome!  We were the only all-girl cosplay group.

For Part Two of our WonderCon adventure, we’ll show you the results of our cosplay photo shoot.

Until next time…
