Wow! What an amazing four day experience. Adam and I had a great time exploring our first Star Wars Celebration, both together and separately. This recap will focus on Friday through Sunday as I previously posted on Thursday’s crazy events.
For myself I think that Friday was, by in far, my favorite of the four days. Why? Because I had the pleasure of sitting in on the panel ” A Date With A Princess”. This was Carrie Fisher’s panel, as a fan girl and true Star Wars nerd this was the highlight of my whole weekend. She did not give away any secrets about the upcoming movie, however, she did share stories of filming the originals. Carrie is a funny, charismatic, and candid individual that truly loves her fans. She proved this by signing autographs, taking pictures, and taking an interest in the fans questions. An entertaining side note is that she had her dog on the stage with her and wherever she went he followed, even to meet the fans. Princess Leia on and off the screen continues to be an idol and inspiration to her fans. Continue reading
We got them dressed.

Posted on FUNKO’s website today.
Day 3 ended up being the best of all 3. With it being a holiday the exhibit hall was less crowded and easier to maneuver. We were able to sit down with a few artists and conduct some great interviews. Those will be up on this weeks special Wondercon edition of the PanelCast along with a full review of the show. Until then, enjoy some more pictures.
So day 2 of Wondercon came and went. While parts of it seem to fly by there were others that seemed to drag. With nearly double the number of attendees as the day before, wandering the main floor seemed like more of an obstacle than an adventure. However, double the attendees means double the amount of cosplayers and man were there some amazing costumes out there. I was not able to personally get as many pics as I would have liked but we did have our photographers running around snapping photos. You can see those in a later post. For now, enjoy mine!!
Today was the first day of Wondercon Anaheim. Entering it’s 4th year at the Anaheim Convention Center it was immediately obvious that the show had grown. Anthony and I had an awesome day wandering the floor and taking it all in. Being that it was Friday the crowd was very light which allowed for us to be able to see all the amazing art and creativity without being encumbered by crowds.
Here are some photos of what we saw on the floor:
Tomorrow we will be hoping to get some interviews from some of the amazing talent that we have come across.
Help out our friends by donating to their kickstarter and see this amazing book get published!
We’ve lived and learned! After the successful release of our first book, “Jack and the Zombie Attack”, we’ve decided to self publish our second book in the series “Jack and the Pirate Attack”. Once again we have chosen a moral to be faced and a lesson to be learned. This is not just a book, it’s an anti-bullying campaign! What better way to learn about the effects of bullying, than from the most notorious bullies in history…pirates!
