Wondercon 2012 Coverage

Since 1987 Wondercon has been in San Francisco, but for this year that changed due to renovations to it’s normal convention location. So this year it was held in Anaheim, Ca. Would this change hurt Wondercons attendance… or just make it more popular than it already was? Well from my experience in going this Friday, and being a attendee to Wondercon for the past 3 years I have to say that it had no negative effect on the attendance, and it seems like it may even produce a bigger attendance for next year whether it’s in Socal or Norcal.

So here’s some photos of the convention, and of the many cosplayers that have gathered at this years Wondercon 2012.

  1. Hah I saw those Astromech droids. One is actually a stroller. Both were remote controlled which was cool.

    Think that’s a Scout Storm Trooper, not a clone trooper.

    That next Storm trooper is actually probably a Republican Trooper from Star Wars: The Old Republic.

    Samurai Minigun is from the Sucker Punch movie.

    That helmetless Darth Vader is probably Darth Maul from SWTOR

    Zatanna’s partner there is probably Dr. Horrible.

    Red robe guy might be an Imperial Guard that stands by the emperor’s doors.

    • Thanks! I haven’t gotten in too deep into the Starwars series besides the movies, and even those I’ve only seen once or twice, but thanks for the info I’ll go ahead and update the info:). Lol and you’re totally right on the Dr. Horrible I can’ believe I didn’t catch thatXD.

  2. The girl with green bodysuit with flames and green hair is Fire (Me!) with Ice from Justice League International. The guy with blue painted stripes on his shoulders is Khal Drogo with Daenerys Targaryen from the Game of Thrones TV show, based on George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series.

    • Haha thanks I’m still unfamiliar with everyone in the DC universe, but thanks for the info on your characters you were cosplaying as, and thanks for letting me take a picture of you and your friend:). Now only if I listened to my friend to watch Game of Thrones when he said to I probably would of known who they wereXD. So thanks again to you for letting me know who they were cosplaying as.
