Cosplay Best Of At WonderCon – Cameron Heffernan

Due to a lack of things not NBC related, the Cosplay at the Anaheim Convention Center was what really stole the show at WonderCon. Well, “Injustice: Gods Among Us” looks wicked sweet too.

If you’ve ever been to a convention of any sort, you always know that the costumes will be in the plenty and the big time entertainment announcements are always lurking around the corners of various vendor booths and the massive ballrooms that consume the onlookers.

This year’s WonderCon there were no Marvel booths, no major announcements – really the only “big” announcement, wasn’t really an announcement but a 2-hour screening of the first two episodes of the new NBC horror/drama “Hannibal”. Unfortunately I didn’t make this due too other things like adult beverages being enjoyed with my fellow nerd-ites and the awe inspiring fireworks of the most magical and evil place on earth being right next door. I must say, I’m a sucker for explosions. What was accomplished in the sweat and days-old body odor of the behemoths that trudged around the dimly lit basement floor of the Anaheim Convention center was myself taking many a picture of the wondrous wold of Cosplay:

And much like this Imperial trooper we walk into the sunset as WonderCon winds down on it’s final day.

Oh, and one final thing. Here’s the dark side of all this. The Furries, when Cosplay goes too far.
