Wondercon 2014 Report
Sunday, April 20th, 2014

Wondercon 2014 is in the family of Comic-Con International, along with APE and San Diego Comic Con
It gets bigger every year and actually sold out this year. This provides optimal timing since Wondercon is over Easter break while SDCC occurs in the summer.
Exciting news is that Star Wars Celebration will be coming to ACC in 2015, and tickets are available now, so if you like Star Wars, better get in on that!

Parking around the ACC was a tad difficult, but that is to be expected for a Comic Con
Once you get inside, you can explore the vastness of the exhibition hall
There were about 10 food trucks lined outside, so no reason to starve
The Artist Alley was also well attended

This year, the masquerade took place in the Arena at the ACC, with a new twist. Concessions *_*. The popcorn was so good!
All the hardworking costumers came out to show off their hard work and ingenuity and you can see their performances here:
