Sigh...  WonderCon 2019 has come and gone...  And I don't even know if it was cool or not?!?  I type these out in advance, so it's a 50/50 shot on it either being totally awesome or totally bogus!  I guess we'll find out next week.  In the meantime, let's kick April off right with some pics from last year's WonderCon!  Enjoy...

Indy and Shortround...  I would've happily paid to see more Indiana Jones movies if it had been them continuing as a team! 

Ghost with the most babe!  Lot's of Beetlejuice cosplayers came out in force to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary.  By far the most popular costumes of WonderCon 2018 were Beetlejuice characters! 

Patty and Selma WITH Jubjub!  I hit the floor laughing when I saw these two!  One of the best cosplays I've ever seen! 

Gomez and Morticia...  TV's greatest couple! 

Blankman!  Wonder wear he got such nice floral sheets from? 

 Leia and Han...  Another unforgettable couple!

 Thanks to the Disney/Fox merger, there's nothing legally stopping this Drax/Colossus crossover from ever happening on the big screen now!

Wakanda forever! 

Wesley and Indigo were looking for a man with six fingers on his right hand.  They only found the Flintstones instead. 

Nice to see that Dr. Evil finally got a shark with a frickin' laser beam attached to its head! 

Could've sworn I was popping my copy of Pootytang into the VCR, but then this happened! 

The most adorable cosplay of 2018: Gert from I Hate Fairyland!  We were all gushing over this kid until we realized it's not a kid-friendly comic at all!  Luckily, her dad assured us she didn't read it!

 Sing it with me folks: "SUDDENLY SEYMORE..."

And we'll wrap things up today with a Beagle Boy!  Ages ago, Scott Shaw! told a group of us a story about how a current Disney executive had no clue who the Beagle Boys even were, despite Ducktales being one of the company's most popular shows ever!  Given the way they stuff things in the vault to be forgotten, I really shouldn't be surprised by this.

And that was WonderCon 2018!  One of the best times I've ever had there, despite having a really crappy hotel room!  I was all over the place and caught up with many pals and shared in many wonderful moments!  I went home very happy afterward.

And that's all for now!  Still dealing with a computer situation at home, so I can't fully promise a look at WonderCon 2019 next week, but it's certainly the main goal!  So hopefully, we'll see you next week.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

WOOOOOOOOOO!!!  IT'S HERE!!!  WONDERCON 2019!!!  It's like Christmas in Spring!  Okay, okay, gotta get a grip here.  There's still a post to be done, so why don't we just jump back a couple of years and head to WonderCon 2017, sound good?  Great!  Enjoy...

Kirk's certainly been busy! 

The Gizmonic Institute seems like a nice place to work at, but a couple of those scientists there just seem to have really dishonorable intentions!

Johnny Bravo!  He says he's pretty! 

Mork from Ork!  Looking for the food truck selling pork! 

It just ain't an Anaheim Comic Con without some Disney villains on hand! 

Jareth always turns up in the least Goblin-like places!

Azkaban Prison must not be that well guarded if Sirius Black keeps escaping!  Do the Arkham guards moonlight there too?

Schroeder serenaded us with some deep cuts while taking a break from his shift at Knott's Berry Farm!

It's only a flesh wound! 

Ruby + Sapphire = Garnet! 

Sexy Chucky...  Whatever floats your boat I suppose!

"On the half-shell there the turtles four
In this day and age who can ask for more?!?" 

The Dude and Walter abide!

Indy's ready to deal! 

No wisecracks here.  This is straight-up one of the most dead-on accurate cosplays I've ever seen! 

Patty, Doug and Porkchop!  Love to see families having a good time together! 

Party on Wayne!  Party on Garth! 

He just felt like running! 

We end things today with Little Bob Ross!  Not sure what sparked the whole recent  Bob Ross craze, but I like it!  He was a positive man with a positive message.  Glad to see people appreciate that.

And that was WonderCon 2017!  My first year not tabling there and I have no regrets.  It could be stressful at times and now has just gotten too expensive.  I'm much happier just walking around, seeing the sights and taking LOTS of pics!  Maybe down the road, I'll give it another try.

And that's it for this week and a wrap on March!  I'm posting a little earlier this week so folks can take all the past glory in a bit longer before the big weekend!  I'm not tabling nor at (the moment) scheduled to be on any panels, but the latter can always change, so keep an eye on my Twitter feed (@JonsCrazyTweets) for any updates!  I should also note that given the nature of having tens of thousands of people crammed into a giant slab of concrete all at one time, cell reception's gonna be spotty at best, so updates may not be all that frequent.  Speaking of patience, it's a big show with lots of people, so try to be understanding and considerate of others.  We're all fans just trying to have a good time and it's easy for tempers to flare.  But if we all just be patient and kind, there's no reason we all can't have a good time!  Take care and I'll see y'all at WonderCon!

One week to go and we are there!  Hard to believe how fast time flies!  But enough about that!  This ain't Doctor Who!  We are in the now now, and as such now is becoming then as we head back to WonderCon 2015!  Enjoy...

My humble setup for the weekend.  Not the flashiest booth, I admit, but it works for me.  Cluttered tables do tend to draw more attention, but there is a drawback: Less room to work!  I did a LOT of sketch card commissions that weekend and was thankful to have the extra space to draw them in.

A Sword of Omens lightsaber?!?  My pal Dawn Griffin would squee rather loudly over this! 

You know who else digs this Muscleman cosplay play?  MY MOM!!!  Seriously, she loved Regular Show

Strong to the finish! 

Nice to see these two still hang out long after Space Ghost Coast-To-Coast ended its brilliant run! 

Sorry, haven't seen any turtles around lately. 

Gee, I never would've expected Belle to give Gaston a second chance, but I suppose anything is possible at WonderCon! 

Quailman and the Silver Skeeter!  Cosplay wish fulfilled! 

Anyone been to Gravity Falls lately? 

Could've sworn that lion was bigger! 

Black Widow and Hawkeye.  Keeping the exhibit hall safe for all! 

It's showtime... 

Thanks to Into The Spiderverse, we now know dual Spider-Men are possible 

We end things on probably my favorite moment of the con, when Casey Jones came up to my table and started quoting the movie with me and my pals Matt Eargle and Riki "Max Sterling" Medina!  Good times, god times!

And that was WonderCon 2015!  A total 180 of what had happened the previous year!  I don't know if it was luck or karma or just plain finding the right note finally, but I could hardly keep sketch cards and books at my table, they were selling so fast!  I'd been battling a raging sinus infection all week too, so it certainly was nice to leave Anaheim with something hang my hat on afterward.

And that does it for now!  We'll have some more fun in store next week and some updates on my whereabouts for the show, so be sure to come back a little earlier than usual as we'll be posting on Monday for the occasion and take a look back at WonderCon 2017!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
