I cover a lot of cons, theme parks, events, etc. on this blog, but at the heart and soul of it all, Wandering NerdGirl is devoted to my passion for finding nerdy travel destinations. Ladies and gents, let me present to you one of those places – Who North America.
Who North America is one of those fantastic stories of a fan’s love developing into something incredible. Keith Bradbury started Who North America back in 1998, when Doctor Who merchandise was pretty limited in the U.S., and quickly grew into one of the largest sources to buy Doctor Who products in North America. In 2016, Who North America opened up a store people could visit. And to make it even more incredible to visit – half the store is a Doctor Who merchandise museum.
Yeah. The moment I read about it, I knew I had to go.
After a week of exciting guest announcements, I’m getting really anxious for my trip. Here’s the guests announced so far:
I’ve wanted to go to England for what feels like forever now. In particular, I’ve had my little heart set on London, and all it’s wonder. There have been several times I’ve said “Okay, that’s it, I’m going next year” – and then I didn’t, for whatever reason.
But I’ve decided there will be no more of that. No more putting it off. I’m going to make serious plans now, even if I have to go alone.
Wizard World St Louis 2016 has come and gone, but there are still definitely some moments from the con I’d like to post about.
That is the question. There’s always a debate whenever I’m talking to people about conventions, specifically Wizard World, whether or not a VIP ticket to a specific celebrity is worth it instead of general admission tickets. This is a great topic of discussion, really, because it honestly is up to you.
