Wow!  What a weekend that was!  WonderCon returned Anaheim last week which led me to make my return there as well!  Although it felt a little weird not having a table this time around, the odd feeling quickly left after walking around for a bit and really taking some time to browse the booths.  I walked away with some cool swag, some awesome books, and even scored some hard-to-find Ultraman memorabilia!  Even cooler was hanging out with many good pals, reconnecting with an old pal and making quite a few new pals over the course of the con!  All in all, it was a good show!  But y'all didn't come here to listen to me ramble on!  You wanna see some WonderCon pics!  And boy was it hard to choose just a select few for this post!  This year's show had some amazing cosplay at it.  I'm always blown away by the skill and effort these kids put into their costumes!  Anyway, enough talking.  Enjoy...

Dr. Robotnik (Or Eggman to the diehards) and Sonic the Hedgehog!  I slapped Sonic on the back and a bunch of gold rings popped out!

Captain Kirk sure does get around.  Even to galaxies far, far away apparently!

Jack Scissorhands!  I love cosplay mashups!

I don't know what game this is from, but man was that armor awesome!  All created with foam floor mats and acrylic paint!

Homeless Waldo...  Did he ever actually have a home?  He's always wandering!

Post-Apocalyptic Pippi Longstocking!  Even as the World crumbles, you can't break her spirit!

The cutest cosplay EVER!!!  It just doesn't get anymore adorable than this!

Talk about devotion?  Four coslpays in one!  (Doctor Who, Doctor Strange, Doc Brown and Over The Garden Wall for those not keeping tabs at home!)

McThor!  Just as I snapped this photo, the fountain jets shot up!  Perfect timing!

Super adorable Arale met some pals from Dragon Ball after learning General Blue might be in the area!

Lt. Dangle was in the house as Han Solo, complete with short shorts and pink Chewbacca!

Here comes Logan Cottontail, bleeding down the bunny trail...

Belle-Raiser!  Get it?  With Disneyland being next door and the live action Beauty and the Beast already a front runner as the year's most successful film (At least until Star Wars comes out), Belle cosplay was without question the most popular one of WonderCon 2017!

"FEED ME!!!"
LOVE the Seymour and Audrey II cosplay from Little Shop of Horrors!  Such an underrated movie! Who knew that the guys behind one of Broadway's raunchiest shows would go on to more or less save Disney just a few years later?  Who knew that history would repeat itself decades after the original rescue?  Maybe time does run on a loop?

This mother is clearly raising her son right!  They even offered to bring me a shrubbery!

Strawberry Shortcake!  Rocking her 80's love and those bloomers proudly!

The Dude abides, takin' it easy for all us sinners!

The President makes clear his intentions for public broadcasting.

 Beauty and the Nightmare Before Christmas!  As I said earlier, Belle cosplay dominated the con.  Most were simply Belle in her market dress while others were Belle in her gown.  Then you had a select few that got REALLY creative, like the pair above!  I always enjoy crossover cosplay, and this one, pun somewhat intended, was a beauty!  Hard to top Belle-Raiser though!

Prince is intrigued by one of the greatest puns ever put together!  This was a perfectly ironic moment that only a comic con can provide.  This gentleman dressed as Prince had a large crowd following him around for pictures.  Suddenly, this "Sand-Witch" walked by, prompting a spot-on response from the purple one!  Just doesn't get any better than that!

And that was WonderCon 2017!  It was great to go back after two years away!  Anytime I chill with my dear pals Riki and Matt is a good time, and running into my old pal Luis, who I hadn't seen in years, was icing on the cake!  Then there were the buds behind the table that made me feel so welcome at the show!  Joie, Josh, Dawn, Clint, Mike and Pat, y'all are diamonds!  Thanks again to my friends, to WonderCon and to the city of Anaheim for giving me an amazing week!  Next up, COMIC CON SAN DIEGO!!!

Well, that's all she wrote for the WonderCon count down.  I hope y'all liked all the cospaly and con pics that took over the blog for the last *GASP* seven weeks!  If you missed the art, you're in luck, because for two weeks only, Mushrooms returns to the CRAZYVERSE next week before the regular blog toons come back in May!  So be sure to come back next Wednesday for some colorful cartoon mayhem!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
