The valiant attendees of WonderCon 2014 arrived to Anaheim, CA in a spectacular display of cosplay this past Easter weekend. No genre or medium was left unturned as cosplayers from far and wide proved their fandom to the fullest. From Doctor Who to Adventure Time to Assassin’s Creed to Star Wars, WonderCon 2014 was a great weekend to be a cosplayer. Check out the full gallery of over 200 images after the break.
As the pre-cursor to San Diego Comic-Con, WonderCon serves as a scrumptious appetizer for folks hungry for convention season. (Check out 2013’s WonderCon cosplay gallery.) It’s a great convention to test out new cosplay and work out any kinks that may need to be adjusted before the big show this July. But after seeing everyone in full costume this weekend, I would have to say no tweaks would be necessary. (Check out my 2013 San Diego Comic-Con cosplay gallery.)
With most conventions, you’ll find the traditional Star Wars characters; Doctors from Doctor Who; various Disney princesses; Deadpools; Starfleet officers from Star Trek; and the many characters from DC (Harley Quinn and Joker mostly) and Marvel Comics. But as new properties emerge, so do the bounty of characters to be seen, which sparks so much fun creativity.
This WonderCon there were quite the large amount of Edwards from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, 104th Training Corps from Attack on Titan, Elsas and Annas from Frozen; and Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. What stood out to me were the unconventional cosplays like The Cable Guy, the animal mask invaders from You’re Next, fem Totoro, Thraduil from The Hobbit, The Animaniacs, Powdered Toast Man, Bat Boy and Hammer Girl from The Raid 2, Sofia the First, and Quiet from Metal Gear Solid 5.
But why am I still talking, you probably haven’t even read this far and have already skipped to the gallery. ENJOY!
