So when I heard that Wonder con (Comic cons little brother) was going to be in the neighborhood and that we were going to be in town, I knew that I had to give the kids a pre-Easter surprise!
Driving up to the event we had caught glimpses of various costumed individuals walking the streets. But that was nothing... The reality of Fantasy had only struck once we had actually arrived on the premises of the Anaheim Convention Center.
Which creatures of all kinds had come down from their other worldly planets for a visit or maybe it was a family reunion!
All ages, shapes, and sizes and I couldn't even comprehend or half way understand what my eyes were seeing.
But one thing I know for sure is that these characters were certainly "characters"!
Here is where we were guaranteed to see your home made and most elaborate costumes. And each of them quite eager for attention and to have their picture taken and their costumes praised!
And let's forget about "washed up celebrity alley." Where the likes of Lou Ferrigno would accept $30-40 to have a picture taken with him. Or Larry Thomas, the soup Nazi from Seinfeld fame autographing his book Confessions of a Soup Nazi: An Adventure in Acting and Cooking. As well as both Richard Hatch & Herbert Jefferson Jr. from the original Battlestar Gallactica.
If this is your bag, then put on you favorite costume or don your utmost strangest duds, and just be sure to register for your badge ahead of time and get your tickets early because these fans come out of the wood work and this event sells out!
