WonderCon 2017 Cosplay Gallery


If WonderCon 2017 is any indication of what we’ll be seeing from cosplayers this summer at future cons, then this year will be quite an impressive year for cosplay. With so many great properties from film, television, anime, comics, gaming, and beyond, there was no lack of creativity this year. Sadly, I could only make it to Sunday at WonderCon, but was sure to make the best of it and capture all that I could.

It was great to see familiar faces I hadn’t seen since San Diego Comic-Con 2016 and WonderCon 2016. And of course I met a lot of amazing new cosplayers I hope to bump into again. We’ll be at Anime Expo in Los Angeles next!

From Comic-Con.org:

WonderCon was started in 1987 in Oakland, California, as “The Wonderful World of Comics Convention.” The show was the brainchild of Bay Area comics retailer John Barrett, who called on a number of friends and associates to help realize his vision, including Bob Borden, Bryan Uhlenbrock, Rory Root, and Mike Friedrich. With the third year, “WonderCon” became the official name of the convention. The original show included all the classic comics convention features: an Exhibit Hall with dealers selling old and new comics and other items, programming, anime screenings, and games. In 2001, after the 15th event, then co-owners Mike Friedrich and Joe Field (another prominent Bay Area comic retailer) decided they could no longer devote the time needed to maintain the quality of the show they helped create. They contacted Comic-Con International in hopes that the organization could fold WonderCon into the Comic-Con family of conventions.

WonderCon is literally the sister show to Comic-Con International, embracing all the main aspects of that show, including comics, movies, TV, animation, the Masquerade, and more. The event has grown in all aspects over the years: more attendees, more exhibitors, more programming, and more fun. In its current Anaheim-based incarnation, WonderCon continues to be a must-attend event on the comic book convention schedule.
