Fun at WonderCon 2019

Had a great time at WonderCon, as usual. Here are some photos to prove it!

The grand entrance.

Miscellaneous superheroes, including a McDonalds Thor and a Jack in the Box Dr. Strange!

Something special for anyone who’s ever worked in an office.

The Empire captures little Spiderman and a Mario brother.

Star Wars trio.

Panel: Unicorns, Rabbits, Aliens and Other People, with (l to r) Maryelizabeth Yturalde, Dana Simpson, Leah Thomas, Jim Pascoe, Nicole Conway, and Cecil Castellucci.

Clever way to protect your vendor booth when nature calls.

Star Trek Fred Flintstone: set phasers to stone!

Is it me, or did it suddenly get very judgey in here? Personally, I prefer Karl Urban’s Judge Dredd over Sly Stallone’s.

Six foot tall LEGO minifigure cosplay. Not so mini now!

My KidLit author panel with (l to r) Lee Wardlaw, Molly Idle, Peter S. Beagle, me, Jo Whittemore, Scott Campbell, and (not shown) Barbara Bottner.

They packed the room!

Any time you’re feeling full of yourself, just do a signing next to Peter Beagle. #LineEnvy

General Grievous bids you farewell until next year!
