Today was the second day of Wondercon at the Anaheim convention center. This was my first day going as I was at the Roseanne premiere yesterday (I mean how could I miss that). It was a con as usual, and being Saturday, it was busy. Many a cosplayer lined the front of the building as well as the show floor.
I found this year to be a bit confusing even though I had a “map” in the guide book. Many of the vendors were the same, some were new. It seemed however as if they had moved vendors around a bit, and that’s okay. Just try to remember where you saw that awesome item you wanted because you just might spend an hour trying to find it again.
I always like to spend time in the small press area. It’s where I discover new comics, new stories and new characters to love. Or hate. I do read some main stream comics, but I have always been a big supporter of small press.
Besides there being a lot of people there today, traffic and especially parking was a disaster. Honestly the extra money I paid for a hotel for one night was totally worth getting around the parking debacle. This happens every year. This year though it seemed they had more roads closed off, routes re-routed. The pedestrians weren’t being funneled by the police, so if you were driving and needed to turn, you had to wait for all 50+ people to walk across. Remember we are also dealing with the Disney Crowd.
If you are coming tomorrow, remember, it closes earlier than it has been. It closes at 5. Come early. If you see something, buy it. Don’t pass it by if you an afford it. Check out every booth. I’ve found countless things I never would have found if I didn’t stop, have a chat and pick up a book, comic or toy.
Most importantly, have fun!
