WonderCon 2013: Comics, blockbusters, and geek girls

So, what are you wearing to WonderCon? Your BSG finest?

WonderCon’s 27th annual gathering kicks off today in Anaheim, California, where tens of thousands of geek girls and guys, sci-fi enthusiasts, and comic mavens will gather in costumes and glee for the opportunity to preview some of the most anticipated releases of the year. Planned by Comic-Con International, the weekend caters to the most devout fans, and features events and panels that appeal to both their nostalgia and their aspiring creativity. On Saturday alone, attendees can jump from a Pacific Rim preview, to a panel on writing comics for movies, and then close out the day learning why 2013 is going to be the year of steampunk. There are even panels on empathy in comics, queer identity, body image, and how to create a quality Jedi costume.
