WonderCon Recap Part Three

Share This Post

For our third and final recap of the wonderful WonderCon 2017, we wanted to recap our panel, “Cosplaying with your Kid”.  The panel took place on the last day of the con at a new panel location, the Avalon Ballroom at the Hilton.  All of the fan lifestyle panels were presented there.

We ended up with a really good turnout!  I’d say we filled up half of the room.  This time around we were joined by Deborah and Celia of Ravenpuff Cosplay.  Shawn and Gavin of Kid Coulson fame joined us again and Anastasia Washington was kind enough to moderate for us again as well.


We had the opportunity to discuss a number of topics concerning kids and cosplay from having your cosplays themed together, social media rules, adult themes and language at cons and good sources for putting together great cosplays without taking out a loan.

We had so much to talk about, we almost ran out of time!  All three kids were fantastic!


As always, we had a great time and really enjoyed bringing this program to you all.

Afterwards, we got some shots of my gender-bend Doctor Strange and Scout’s new Ancient One cosplays.

My cosplay is by Elhoffer Design.  Scout’s cosplay is from Chinatown in LA, so I can’t put links to the items, but Amazon has a lot of similar pieces available.

After our panel, we hit the floor, which was full of great booths.  Our favorite was the Red Chapter booth with the Ambigram t-shirts.  We bought five!  Shop them here.

Afterwards, we changed out of our cosplays and went to just hang out with our nerds by the fountain and take in the last hour of the con.  WonderCon always goes by way too fast for us.  It is our favorite con, and we can’t wait for next year already!

Next up, Ren Faire!

Until next time…

Love, Kim and Scout
