Finally, WonderCon is over and that means I can go back to blogging a little bit more often until San Diego Comic-Con starts creepin’ up…and then it’s crunch time again. For the past week, I’ve worked my ass off to get my costume done in time for WonderCon. I was so damn close to finishing until I had to sew something. Yeah, sewing is not my forte. I decided to not rush my costume and instead take some time to learn the basics of sewing. Man, I hate sewing.
Oh yeah, so where as I? Right. WonderCon in Anaheim! This was my first time going to WonderCon. It’s like most other video game & comic book conventions, but still very fun nonetheless.
One of the highlights of this event was getting to see David Yost (Billy from The Power Rangers). This guy was part of a show that I’ve loved and watched religiously as a young child. To be able to stand just a few feet away from the original Blue Ranger himself was still rather mind-blowing to me.
A few tables next to David Yost’s is the Soup Nazi! Holy shite! Anyone who has watched Seinfeld before should know how absolutely phenomenal this is. The Soup Nazi has his own booth. There are t-shirts, giant soup soups and hats that says “No soup for you!”
I went on a Sunday so as expected, the cosplays were more toned down and/ half-assed. Though, there were some that really stood out from the rest, costumes that made you say “Dayum, das tight,” such as Nightwing and Cable (whom, at the time I thought was an older version of Cyclops…I’m a dolt!).
And speaking of cosplay, here’s my progress so far. I’ve gotten a lot done–if I can’t finish this in time for SDCC then well, I suck.
