Costumes! Panels! Merch!

This weekend from Friday to Sunday, April 1-3, 2011 will be the annual WonderCon in the Moscone Center South in San Francisco. Having gone several times and had a blast, I highly recommend Millsies to register online as soon as possible because admission is cheaper.

Such events include the WonderCon Masquerade, a screening of Star Wars: “Last Fan Movie Standing,” the world premiere of the superhero film Green Lantern: Emerald Knights and followed by the Green Lantern movie panel.

You can read up on their program schedule here to see what’s happening, who’s going, etc.

From the WonderCon website:

      “Remember: Your WonderCon badge gets you access to all events onsite at the convention – space permitting — including panels, programs, screenings, and the giant Exhibit Hall. There are no extra fees!”
