Today kicked of Wondercon 2016 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, where I met up with several of my R2 building buddies to help spread merriment.
I arrived around 9:30am for a noon show opening. Ed and Gene helped set up the booth.
After that was done, I took a walk around to see some of the displays that were being put in place.
Around 11:30am, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti held a convention kick-off press conference, welcoming Wondercon to the Los Angeles Convention Center for the first time. R2 was asked to participate for a post-conference photo with the mayor and some of the costumed characters.
After that, it was back up to the booth, and pics, pics, pics! The kids loved the droids.
Baby-8! Kayla Miyamoto has outgrown her baby predator costume, but William and Nikki came up with a great droid alternative, complete with thumbs-up flame.
Everyone had a good time, and we're looking forward to Day 2 and even more droids!
