WonderCon season is warming up in all the best possible ways. Last week we saw WonderCon hotels open up for reservations and now that you’ve taken care of that (you have, haven’t you?) it’s time to start planning the good stuff. We’ve got a whole handful of cosplay photo shoots to keep you busy, a very well done Meat-Up and even some artist commission info.
Here’s a look at what you might have missed:
- Photographers looking to get out from behind the lens and in front of it might want to check out this Photographer Group Shoot on Saturday, March 30.
- Snip snip! Time to sharpen those sewing scissors. Registration is now open for the Wonder Con Masquerade, taking place on Saturday, March 30. Advanced registration is open until March 13, after which you’ll have to sign up at the event, provided space remains (which isn’t likely).
Are you ready for the #WCA2019 Masquerade? We are! Registrations are now open, get out those costuming tools, work on those ideas, and don't forget to register below! https://t.co/0EwhP1FTxT pic.twitter.com/TDZ1NBd8Px

- If your cosplay creation is from the DC Universe, be sure to RSVP to this DC Cosplayer Photo Shoot, scheduled for Saturday, March 30.
- Conversely, if Earth-616 is more your style, you’ll want to RSVP for the Marvel Fan Costume Shoot, also on Saturday, March 30. Fingers crossed these two groups don’t get down like the Sharks versus the Jets.
- Kids Can Cosplay has announced that they will be at WonderCon all weekend. Stop by to meet some of the youngest fans who took playing dress up to a whole new level.
- Come hang with the Belchers at the 3rd Annual WonderCon Bob’s Burgers Meat Up, taking place Saturday, March 30. Special surprise guests have been know to pop in for this event so fans should make this one a priority. Fingers crossed that we’ll see some Toddland involvement!
- 14 year old artist and “nerd about town” Ethan Castillo has announced he’ll be attending WonderCon after missing it in 2018.

- If you are hoping to snag some original art from Liam ‘Sharpy’ Sharp, he’s promised to post all the details regarding commissions on his website soon.
I'm sure I'll be doing some drawing at the show. Keep an eye on my site: https://t.co/7RaZju0Umi for when we open a commissions list. 🙂
