There is nothing quite as rejuvenating as a fabulously large comic book (and more) convention only thirty minutes from my house. WonderCon is so close I don’t have to fly anywhere, stay in expensive hotels, and curb spending because my carrying capacity on the plane is limited. All the fun without any of the drawbacks. Certainly one of the huge perks of city living, one that I would be remiss in not enjoying to the fullest.
Saturday was pretty much entirely devoted to WonderCon. Clearly half the city had the same idea, because it was packed!! Which probably explains why we pooped out before we had finished perusing the entire booth floor.
It might have also have to do with the fact that we visited the Nintendo DS3D booth twice. This was my first time seeing the 3D version and I must admit to being surprisingly impressed. The whole notion of 3D in general turns me off, but Nintendo really managed well. The 3D is incredibly impressive.
Jessica was incredibly nice. I on the other hand was incredibly awkward (haha). Told her I loved the show and then couldn’t come up with anything else. (Sigh!) Of course I spent the rest of the weekend thinking of awesome and inspiring conversation, but never did get around to going back.
But we didn’t get to finish, the press of people and the pain in our feet eventually did us in. So we came back Sunday.
Sunday turned into book day. We started off visiting a few panels (Star Wars Crafts and Build your own R2D2, both really fun!) Then it was onto making sure we hit everything on the booth floor we hadn’t seen or been putting off. This mostly consisted of picking up books, which was necessary and fabulous, but also heavy, so that pretty much meant it was time to go home.
A small shout out to the guy who came wearing a Murloc hat. My husband has requested I make him one, so that will be my next project. Also got my R2D2 fix, though I’m hoping someday we will have enough time (and money) to build our very own. =D
