Well, here we are.  Another WonderCon has passed.  And it was...  I haven't the foggiest idea.  As I've stated many times, I write these posts well in advance.  In fact, as I write this we are eight days away from the show even starting.  I haven't even packed yet!  But, it is posting today, three days after the show has already ended!  Hopefully, I'm feeling okay right now and not battling a raging sinus infection like last year.  Since I can't really predict what next week's post is gonna be like, let's just skip ahead to the pics.  The CRAZY WonderCon Countdown is still a go!  Enjoy...

Crystal Gems and Hitchhiking Ghosts...  You should be wary of both!

After February's Wonka fiasco in Scotland, I think people might have a better appreciation of the Tim Burton Wonka film now.  Having read the book, I actually understood and got what Burton and Johnny Depp were trying to do.  I'm also really hoping I'll have some Sad Oompa Loompa and Unknown cosplay pics to post next week!

They're off to see the Wizard!

Good God!  Energy Drink Monster needs to find something else to get hooked on!

There once was a time when the channel that inspired this cosplay actually meant something...

I don't think this one lives in a dream house.

Well alrighty then!

Inspector Gadget is on the case!

They were looking for a large scratching post!


There are some who call him... Tim?

Furry dance party...  Not much else can really be said about it.

Although I'm writing this from the past, it's already been announced that Funko wouldn't be back this year.  It's a shocker for sure as they were a HUGE part of the last two WonderCons, with a fully immersive booth that took up half a hall.  It wasn't as massive as their San Diego efforts, but still very impressive that finally brought a Hollywood-style experience within the halls of WonderCon which has historically always been a more subdued show.  Last year's animated "Carnival" setup was a big step up from 2022's "Tiki' booth, which was also amazing.  Was there something equally impressive ready to take that spot this year?  Guess we'll find out soon enough...

We close things out this week with Kwanzaa Bot!  Definitely one of Futurama's more spirited characters, Kwanzaa Bot is still out there selling everybody on a wonderful holiday that helps stretch the season of giving out just a bit more.  It's a holiday that does seem to get lost in the shuffle a bit with Christmas, Hanukah and New Year's kinda swallowing everything up (Seriously, they're encroaching on Halloween now for Heaven's sake!), but it's still a meaningful time and if you've never seen what's on a Kwanzaa menu, you are seriously missing out!

And that was WonderCon 2023!  Definitely a fun time and probably the record for most money I've ever blown at a show, even SDCC!  I scored a BUNCH of vintage comics and some really cool art books and prints.  I even met the creative team behind Animaniacs!  The only downer really was that every building  I went into had the AC cranking even though it was cold outside, leading to me getting a really bad sinus infection.  I eventually got better, but it would've been nicer to not get it at all!  Still, the overwhelming majority of it was fun and the memories are fond.

And that's all she wrote for this week.  The countdown's almost done, but we're gonna go out with a bang as next week, we FINALLY get to WonderCon 2024!  So be sure to come back and see how it all ends!  Until then, take care, stay safe and I'll catch y'all later!
