Family Geek Day! Wondercon 2015

Posted on

My family and I geek out together. I’ve talked about it before. We’ve been to Comic Con, ComiKaze, and a Star Wars convention years ago. So when my son’s friends were heading to Wondercon this weekend, we thought we’d go, too.

**Also – if you’re someone who’s never been to Comic Con, but would like to – this is a good first stop. It’s easier to get tickets to it, and it’s smaller in scale, so it’s not as overwhelming.**

We started the day with a photo in front of a pretty fountain in the Convention Center Complex.

There were some vendors who had some cute stuff! I eyed these Star Trek bags, but didn’t get one while we were there early in the day.

I did go back later. They were sold out of my first choice, but I got this one. 🙂

After we fed Sean and he found his buddies, we headed out to the food trucks… as did everyone else.IMG_1890

We ended up in line behind Venkmann and Zool…IMG_1892

There were several gatherings of cosplayers throughout the day. Notice the abundance of Harley Quinns.

My crafty girl was happy to see Wool Buddies there! These are the little wool animals she felts.Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 1.19.07 AM

So many people on the escalator!IMG_1895

We didn’t go to any panels (if we were there today (Easter Sunday), we could have seen The Flash panel), but my husband wasn’t into that. So, we spent our time on the convention floor looking at all the comic booths and all the wares.

We looked at some cool wood-frame glasses.IMG_1898

The girls had personalized cartoons drawn – one of M the tapper IMG_1904

Someone taking advantage of pop culture… I always saw the dress as white and gold, but hey! It IS black and blue!!IMG_1911

My boy and his buddy ran into us on the floor.IMG_1910

I’m not sure what he was selling, but he made a great Vince Klortos from Ghostbusters.

There were a few booths with clothing. This one had leather hats – they couldn’t resist!

There are always really cool t-shirts. This one is The Avengers – as Resevoir Dogs. (Thor, Hawkeye, Ironman, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk)

Of course, one of the funnest things to do at a con is to people watch and look at all the costumes.
