Wonderfestival Summer 2005

I really forgot what a massive undertaking Wonderfest can be. It took about 4 hours to get from one side of the hall to the other. And while there was the usual bounty of obscene garage kits and the usual gaggle of sweaty otakus taking pics of them, sprinkled here and there amongst the deitrus are certainly gems to be found. Its a great place to try and glean the latest in upcoming toy & figure trends, but again there is so much there that I think each person there comes away with a different experience. It is certainly an mind-boggling amalgam of talent, effort and plastic. I also enjoy the CosPlay (costume play) going on out the back of the hall which seems to reach higher and higher heights of pompousity year after year.

Below are just a few of my impressions.
