WonderCon 2012 came and went by so quick this year. i barely took any photos, but here are a couple of them.

 so, WC was in Anaheim this year. we were very skeptical about the show being there. we did Wizard World there a couple years ago and it was rough. i had to set up by myself this year, but it went well enough.

Linda was able to take off work on Friday, so finishing setting up was easy. Chito also hung out almost all weekend. the convention center was freezing, so i was happy to have my new Squib hat to keep me warm.

 we met a guy and his son that stopped by the booth a couple of times. the last time they came around the kid gave me a drawing he did the night before. i say kid, cuz he's only 16 years old. based on the drawing i think he'll do just fine as an artist/designer. i've already framed it. 

 another highlight was meeting all of the guys i watch on G4. up top is Chris Hardwick, we got to discuss some Walking and Talking Dead. Linda had to chase down Kevin Pereira for me. i also met Chris Gore, but i was alone, so no photos, dang. hopefully one of those meetings will lead to my 10-Doh! figures being feature during Attack This! on AOTS, hopefully.

 i usually take more photos of the costumes, but i just wasn't on top of it this year.

grumpy or sleepy? both are accurate on any given day.

Linda and Viv dancin and lovin our Colossal Squib. who's givin Hugs (of death) now?

we packed up pretty quick and then helped out Jerome and Daisy. then we headed out to get some In N Out to celebrate and relax a bit before we headed home. 

the show definitely wasn't the same as WonderCon up in SF. but after all was said and done, it was still a pretty good show for us. we still had a bunch of repeat customers, which is awesome. i love seeing familiar faces. there were also a bunch of new faces too. overall all it was a fun show, but i'd rather it be up in SF. parking was a ripoff with no chance of street parking. and Moscone Center is dedicated to WonderCon while it's goin on. most of Anaheim Convention Center was filled with volleyball players and cheerleaders. time to start preparing for AX  and SDCC, WoooHooo!!
