WonderCon 2013 Cosplay in Pictures [Gallery]While plenty of people were celebrating Easter in the U.S. last weekend, many geeks were busy in Anaheim, CA, at an event that I’m sure plenty of you would find much more interesting: WonderCon! I’ve just scoured Flickr for some CC-licensed photography of the event, and compared to Pax East 2013, there was plenty to choose from.
