Star Wars Celebration Begins Tomorrow April 13th!

 

I had the privilege of attending Star Wars Celebration in 2015 when it was in Anaheim California.  It was one of the most memorable conventions I have ever been to in recent years.  There was so much to do and see it was quite overwhelming.  Not the overwhelming where you want to leave, but the kind where you need more!

And more is what I got.  I spent all day looking at the amazing set props they had set up, buying merchandise and generally being n aww of the cosplayers of which there was no shortage of.  The do such an amazing job replicating their favorite characters.  We meet up with all our other Star Wars friends and we walk the floor together getting giddy over what we see.

Now one thing I do have to advise, is don’t play with the legos!  You will want to help build that giant Darth Vader, but don’t.  Its ripe with sickness and I’m positive it’s what gave me con crud for the 2 weeks afterwards.  Hand sanitizer is a must.

I can’t wait to watch the Celebration live stream.  It is done very well, since in 2015 the first day I had to work.  It can be found at StarWars.com.

Check my Instagram for my pictures from the 2015 Star Wars Celebration I attended.  If you are there have fun!  Take a lot of pictures, you will want to look back on them.  I promise.

Wondercon 2017, Thoughts

I have been going to Wondercon since it came to Anaheim a few years back.  This year I personally thought it was a bigger convention than in past years.  I’m the type of person who goes to conventions for comic books.  I go with a list of obscure comics by number of what books I’m looking to read.

There were plenty of vendors to suit even the pickiest of collectors.  The badge pick up went rather smooth for me. I went on Thursday, the day before the convention began.

The variety of food trucks in between the Hilton and Marriott hotels was great.  They had some of the best food trucks.   They each had their own niche with a lot of choice.

The only gripe I had, and I think most attendees will agree with me is on parking. Parking was an absolute disaster.   If you could find a spot consider yourself lucky.  If you had a Disneyland annual pass, even luckier.   Next year Wondercon has to come up with a better parking scenario.  If they do that it would make it so much more enjoyable.

Wondercon 2017 has come and gone.  Here are some photos we took as we walked the convention floor.  We will be putting up a Cosplay slideshow soon, so check back.  Overall, it was a great convention with something for everyone!
