WonderCon 2018 Cosplay recap. 

WonderCon was held March 23-25, 2018 and it was another wonderful con. Thousands of cosplayer could be seen walking the halls and court yard of the Ananheim Convention Center. 

 WonderCon is an anual event usually held in the city of Anaheim. It is run by the same people that run San Diego Comic Con, but unlike San Diego it is far less stressful and one of my favorite cons. Also on the plus side you have Downtown Disney and the Disneyland Resort a short distance away. 

This year was filed with thousands of amazing cosplays. It always amazes me the level of creativity. 

I love cosplaying and I make all my own cosplays. I’ve been sewing for almost three years and I’m completely self taught. 

Day 1-  80s and 90s animated classics. 

For the first day I cosplayed as one of my favorite childhood characters Gadget Hackwrench from Disney’s Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers.  

 
  
I ran into some other critters  during the day. 

Loved Alivin and the Chipettes 

Janet-The blonde Jedi

   
    

Secret of Nimh 

Love how classic 80s and 90s cartoons were being represented. 

   

   
It truly was a classic day that ended with a classic burger.  A mouse gets hungry after a busy day of Conning, so of course I went for an In n Out cheeseburger. 

  

Day 2 – Herioc Adventures

For the second day I cosplayed as a USO girl. Honestly it is one of my favorites cosplays cause lets be honest I do love Captain America. He is one of my favorite superheroes 

Bucky –  Steven Van Doom

Captain America – Captain Cosplay

 
Here are a few of my friends before the Con 

Lando-  Atomic Redhead Pinup Wonder Woman, Griffindlr Quiddich players

Took some pictures with some Caps   
        Even joined some fellow USO girls for this group picture. All and all it was a fun day, but very exhausting. 

Day 3 – Regency princesses  

Day 3 my friend Jojoand I decided to do a regency Frozen mashup. Our love of Jane Austen inspired this idea and it was very well received.  

Coronation Elsa and  Anna Austen 

            

Tea Time with Hamilton. When the Colonies meet British Regency. Apparently they aren’t fans of tea 😂  

  

    

Snowflake tea sandwiches  

  
We ran into some other great cosplays during the day. 

My favorite of princess suffragettes 

Anna – Arielle cosplay

Ariel- Lena

Moana – Alia

Sleeping Beauty- Victoria

Loved this Brave family. Complete with peg leg. Such a clever cosplay   

Sailor Moon –   Eri

  

Rita Skeeter Nikki interviews Queenie Jamie

       

We each bought our own charcters.  

  Corgi Link. Love it when dogs cosplay too

  

It was a great WonderCon and we ended it by heading to Disney

Best part of the end, no more wigs!!!

Took a spin on Luigi’s  
   

I stopped to talk to Captain America who was honestly so wonderful. Even asked to see pics of WonderCon. Highly suggest stopping by and talking to him. 

  

 

Finally ended the night with fireworks. It was perfection. 

I highly recommend WonderCon and even more cosplaying. Hope this inspired you to check out a local Con. Have a magical day!! 

D23 expo recap

D23 expo was this past weekend at the Anaheim convention center. It comes ever other year and it was my first time going. 

I decided to go as Vanessa, Ursuala’s alter ego on land. The costume I made turned out great.   

I got in line about 7 am the convention opened at 10 am.  

  
  
  
The nice thing is that D23 expo had stage pass for some panels. It’s basically like a fast pass so you don’t have to wait in line for hours and hours. I was able to stag a pass for the shorts panel. 

The short panel discussed the different shorts featured in the new DVD. The coolest thing was a sketch book they gave to all audience members. 

  
Another cool thing about the expo was a chance to visit the Disneyland archives.  It featured props from rides, photos, badges, and costumes.  I took a ton of photos. 

 

disneyland archieves
 
  
This was the end of the collection. Amazing!!!

There were tons of phot opportunities and amazing cosplays. I was lucky to take some photos with some amazing cosplayers. 

 
  
  

Sven let’s go save Anna
 My favorite had to be this one with Flynn Rider. Move Eric I have my eye on Flynn, Maximus doesn’t approve. Can’t help it Flynn stole my heart.   
fellow cosplayers
   
I really was a fan of cosplayers that cosplayed less popular characters, Mr. and Mrs. Darling (Wendy’s parents) Olivia (Great Mouse Detective) King Steffan and the Queen (Aurora’s parents) and the Haunted Mansion (Amber Arden’s tightrope girl was amazing)

  

There was another great opportunity to take a photo on a Star Wars speed racer. It was pretty awesome.  


I attended an artist signing of Jasmine Becket Griffith. I love her art work. Picket up a Snow White postcard.    

Disney Infinity has a booth too. Uou had an opportunity to choose one of six figurines after their interactive experience. I was one of the last in line to get this opportunity, the line was two hours long but for a free infinity figure so worth it. 

  I picked up Sadness. She’s so cute.  

  

Got to get a sneak peak of Disney Shanghai. 

 
And another sneak peek of Pandora at Animal Kingdom 

   

Plus there will be a lot of exciting with the announcement of Star Wars land in Disneyland and DisneyWorld. So much exciting new developments and expansions. It’s an amazing era for Disney. Can’t wait to see all the developments completed. 

Plus all the cute products that will come out soon for Disney style at the Disney store. 

  
 It was an amazing day and I ended the day sailing back to the sea. After all Vanessa can’t remain on land forever.     
I did buy a few things and scored some free stuff. I loved my Aristocats prints I bought and my Disney Vans. I loved the Ariel ones. Ironic that Vanessa bought Ariel shoes but it was the only way to get a little mermaid. 

  
It was a fabulous day can’t wait for 2017. Thanks for reading, have a magical day.
