Commissions! Meet and greets! Pins! Giveaways! So! Much! Art! Tonight’s WonderPost truly has it all, in this jam-packed edition featuring updates on at least some of what you’ll find at the convention this weekend.

Let’s take a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Indie comics company Diwata Komiks will be taking over #SP-36 in Small Press this weekend, and they have some exciting creators, actors, and more stopping by throughout the week. You can find co-creator and lead actress of Carmina, Erica Juliet, on Saturday, March 30 from 12:30-5pm, as well as Divina Amala creator Lyn Pacificar on Friday, March 29 from 4pm-7pm.

  • Get ready to add a touch of natural magic to your divination practice with The Crafty Ravens’ enchanting resin rune sets. Wait for the signal and then meet them at Booth #1442 after dark.

  • Hi, Barbie! Meet up with your fellow Barbies at the WonderCon Cosplay Meet-Up, set for Sunday, March 31 at 2pm at the fountain in front of the convention center. The Kens are welcome too!

  • Artist Vince Alvendia (EggdropRamen.Studio) has a few of the baddest ladies in town accompanying him to the convention next weekend — and by that, we mean these fun Disney originals, which you can score at #B-30 in Artist Alley.

  • Gooses, geeses, I want my geese to lay gold eggs for Easter… Give it to me now! You can search for your own golden egg at WonderCon, and should you find one, bring it back to CGC Booth #700 to claim a prize. They’ll also have a pin giveaway, with new limited-edition pins to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Wolverine and the 85th anniversary of Batman. And of course, they’ll be accepting submissions for grading your comics, cards, and video games. Find more information on their blog.

  • Speaking of Easter (which is also this Sunday), Le Spirit Designs got into the hop-iday spirit with a Petal bunny design. You can hop on over to #F-36 for the WonderCon exclusive sticker.
