    For the second year in a row, the Anaheim Convention Center has played host to WONDERCON. This year's 2013 event drew an estimated 40,000 people to the Orange Country area. While there was somewhere around 240 hours of programming available over the course of the three days of the event, we got to experience only a small fragment of it on Day 2.

    Of course, one of our favorite parts of any Con is the cosplay and this year's events had plenty. Everything from blockbuster films to obscure cultural references saw the light of day and we even got to see Guillermo Del Toro talk about Pacific Rim and James Wan talk about The Conjuring. Of course, exploring the showfloor is an activity unto itself and we'll give you a quick preview of the excitement there, as well.

    In all we had a great time and only wish we had more time to explore everything more deeply but before we go on any longer, we invite you to enjoy MouseInfo's coverage of Day 2 at Wondercon Anaheim 2013!
