This past weekend we attended WonderCon in Anaheim, California. We went last year and it has become one of my new favorites. My husband Joey and I have been preparing my Spider-Gwen costume for the past month so it was really fun to finally premiere it.
The first thing we did when arriving at the con was volunteer for the (future) Hollywood Sci Fi Museum, that hopes to open in 2016. We donated to their Kickstarter and attended a fan event with them. We dressed up as Spider-Gwen and Spider-Man to help attract people in stopping by. While volunteering, I was asked to assist at the table for Billy West, the voice actor (Futurama!). It was surreal experience having my picture taken at times while helping out with his fans and hearing his stories.
Other than dressing up, we bought a few pieces of Spiderverse (and Captain Marvel) art from many talented artists. The panels we attended were for iZombie and The Flash. People, if you're not watching these shows, you're missing out on a lot of fun!
This weekend, I'll be attending one day of YALLWEST in Santa Monica, which will be a lot of fun. It's been a while since I attended a bookish event like this so I know it will be a blast. I've met so many wonderful people since we moved to San Diego three years ago, so it will be fun to catch up with familiar faces and meet new ones!
There's my weekly check-in! Next week, I'll have an update on YALLWEST and my amazing accountability team!
