I was only able to attend Saturday this year, but what I saw makes me look forward to future WonderCons in Anaheim (the show had previously been held in San Francisco). It had the feel of San Diego Comic Con back in the 1990s (i.e., after it moved from the old convention center but just before it started becoming the media monster it is today).
Many more photos after jump...
Also got the chance to talk with Mark Evanier, Stan Sakai, Jim MacQuarrie, Flint Dille, Bob Luedke, Shaene Siders, Larry Marder, Eric Jansen, Leslie Ezeh, Rik Offenberger, and many, many others.

WonderCon had a magnificent cosplay contingent this year, though they were so swamped with photographers than many of them never made it past the lobby! Below are only a fraction of the cosplayers I saw; I wish I had been fast enough w/my camera to have captured: -- The eight droid remote control R2D2 Electric Light parade (complete w/"Baroque Hoedown"!) -- the Monty Python / Spanish Inquisition cosplayer (he really shoulda been photobombing everyone else) -- the five year old Disney princess carrying a bundle of dynamite
Finally, let it be clearly understood I am a geek of major proportions: I identified one cosplayer not merely as a movie serial Batman, but which serial!
