Con You Dig It? The Otaku's Guide to WonderCon
From cosplay to con's play, we've got you covered
It's a conderful life! We're no angels, but we are here to help guide you through WonderCon, the massive convention for all things nerd happening this weekend in Anaheim, CA. Plan for success with our programming guide for the discerning otaku.
Gaming the System - Who will design the next Mario? Two words: challenge accepted. Join CAPCOM's Francis Mao on Friday and find out How to Get a Job in the Video Gaming Industry.
Dress to Impress - Saturday night's highlight is the WonderCon Masquerade, a celebration of all things cosplay as some truly talented fans display their homebrewed creations. Look for us; we'll be dressed as the people who are unreasonably stoked to be there.
Statuesque - On Saturday, the figuremakers extraordinaire at Kotobukiya are having a massive preview of what's coming down the pipeline this year. Swing by booth #563 anytime all weekend and tell them that "Nerdist sent you" for the chance to win Kotobukiya's unreleased Marvel Fine Arts Magneto statue.
QMXtremely Awesome - Speak the self-same phrase unto our pals at QMX at booth #463 to get 10% off of all non-artisanal goods. Considering they'll be slinging wares from the likes of Dr. Who, Battlestar Galactica and more, you're going to be grateful for the savings (so you can buy...ALL THE THINGS!).
Das ist Nerdist - Clear your schedule for the Nerdist Industries Live! panel on Friday at 5:30PM as Chris Hardwick, alongside amazing guests from the Nerdist Channel on YouTube, gives you the lowdown on Weird S#!t from Japan, Just Cos, the upcoming cosplay show, and more. Stick around afterwards for the world premiere of Superman vs. The Elite for a double whammy of awesome.
