Wizard World Sacramento has come and gone. This con was really fun and easily one of my favorite of the year so far. It was the first time attending Wizard World so I wasn’t too sure what to expect. There was a great selection of vendors, high profile celebrities and chances for photo ops.
I loved the fact that drinks were sold on the floor at this con. This is a phenomenon I have never encountered in all my years of conning. Let me tell you something. I loved it. It changed the vibe to more of a party con, which is not a bad thing in my book. This first day we got the chance to take lots of photos and attended the after con karaoke event. Which was actually really fun. It was a small yet lively event, both Vick and I sang, Backstreet Boys and R. Kelly respectively.
Saturday had a great arrange of panels to attend. We saw James Gunn, talk about his career in the MCU and Girlmore Girls. Michael Rooker crashed his panel and said I’m Mary Poppins y’all. That moment made the con for me, everything else was just icing on the con cake. Directly after that Michael Rooker had a panel by himself. No moderator or anything. He called James Gunn while and stage and told a few stories. After that he jumped into the crowd and took questions. For more original questions he would delve into detail, but run of the mill stuff got a yes or no. While eating at a food truck I was approached by some fellow podcasters from No Ordinary Nerd, we attended their panel about nerd culture and anxiety. We also had the pleasure of meeting many different cosplayers which culminated in a cosplay contest on saturday night.
