Well, normally I'd be typing about how my past self is too tired to be posting about this past weekend's WonderCon 2020.  Unfortunately, current events ended that played-out joke.  But, as a veteran cartoonist and stagehand, I know very well that the show must go on and that we all need an escape from things.  And so it is that I will soldier on with the Wonder Con Countdown.  Obviously, things are gonna be a bit different this time around, but the world needs laughter, and I will do my best to deliver.

So the year is 2017.  The location is the Anaheim Convention Center.  The event is WonderCon and I'm making my triumphant return after a year off.  Let's dive in, shall we?  Enjoy...

Bill the Butcher cosplay!  Interesting character to dress up as. 


 Ruby + Sapphire = Garnet!
Even the show's recent ending, when cons pick back up this year, there'll probably be a LOT of Steven Universe cosplay, especial Spinel!

Griff and his pals are totally unaware that Deadpool is photobombing.  Frankly, neither was I until I queued this pic!  I get that Deadpool's a wiseass character, but the cosplayers are starting to take things a little too far with it.  Some go out of their way to ruin people's pictures, and that's just not cool.  Always be courteous to other attendees folks. 

Tink's been hitting the weights a little too hard! 

I'll always be of the opinion that the Joel era of MST3K was the greatest, but Pearl Forrester was a damn funny villain! 

A very rare sight during WonderCon: Open fountain space!  If I had to guess, this was early the first day before the exhibit hall opened. 

The amount of effort and detail that goes into some of these costumes is mind blowing.  I remember seeing these kids wheel them in, piece by piece, using luggage dollies from the nearby Hilton.  They had a tough time getting through security, not because of badge issues, but because the costume, once put together, couldn't fit through the RFID scanners!

Captain Mexico!  This dude's my hero for sure! 

Wouldn't be a comic con without Harley and Joker cosplay! 

One of my oldest and dearest pals, Riki Medina!  Last summer, I told the tale of a pal who put a bunch of hot shot gamer kids in their place on Mario Maker at the SDCC Nintendo Lounge.  The man above is said pal!  It's been a while since we tore through a comic con.  Hopefully, that streak will end this year.

Double the Foley, double the fun! 

Doodle Bob!  One of my all-time favorite Spongebob episodes!

OOOEE!!!  I couldn't think of a funnier way to end this week's post than with a look at Mr. Poopy Butthole, who we all know now is very much real!

And that was WonderCon 2017!  One of the best weekends of my life, I had nonstop fun the entire time!  It was also the first time I didn't table there.  It was a weird feeling at first not being behind the table, but it really was for the best.  Besides being expensive, tabling can be pretty darn stressful.  I have no regrets about it.  I love walking around and seeing everything.  Maybe someday I'll get a table again, but for now, I'm back in fan mode!

And that's all for now.  We'll be back next week with a look back at WonderCon 2018!  Until then, stay safe, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
