WonderPost 2023: Cosplay Photoshoots, Fleischer Cartoons, KRS Comics, Jeff Pina, Thousand Skies

Every day, it’s a-getting closer, going faster than a rollercoaster… Every day we inch closer to WonderCon Anaheim 2023, and the trickle of news starts to become a flood. On this day, we’ve got another jam-packed edition of news for you, including where and when you’ll want to meet-up for that cosplay group photoshoot, where to buy some of the cutest merch if you’re a dog-lover, art prints ranging from Mario to Marvel, and more.

Here’s a look at what you might have missed:

  • Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it! One of our favorite things about WonderCon is the amount of amazing cosplay that fills the courtyard area just outside the Anaheim Convention Center, and this year will be home to several group photoshoots for galaxies (and fandoms) far and wide. Here are just a few of the events:
    • DC Group Photoshoot — Saturday, March 25 TBA — Main fountain — Facebook event
    • Disney Group Photoshoot — Sunday, March 26 2pm PT — 2nd floor stair — Facebook event
    • GI Joe Group Photoshoot — Time TBA — South Terrace — Facebook event
    • Guardians of the Galaxy Group Photoshoot — Friday, March 24 1pm PT — Main fountain — Facebook event
    • Star Wars Group Photoshoot — Saturday, March 25 12pm PT — Main fountain — Facebook event
  • Thousand Skies is an early frontrunner for “cutest merch on the show floor”. This year, you can get their corgi-licious wares at Booth #2042.

  • Forget about Cocaine Bears — our favorite kind of bear is one that makes art. And Brian Bear Cartoon will be bringing his fantastical creations to WonderCon this month, with prints, books, and “whathaveyous”, at Booth #D-06. 

  • He’s no Jedi, but this Captain Rex print from Eva and Eylyana of 2designerds is pretty awesome. Be a Trooper, and march on over to Booth #C-39 to pick it up.

  • Level up your art game with this new piece from Handcrafted Geekdom, which will be available at #F-22.
