Top tweets from Wizard World Minneapolis Comic Con
This weekend, folks at the Minneapolis Convention Center got their nerd on at Wizard World's Minneapolis Comic Con. The event covered a mind-boggling number of fandoms -- including Star Trek, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Dr. Who, Nightmare on Elm Street -- with talks, meet-and-greets, costume contests, screenings, and more over the course of three days.
Like any good nerd summit, folks were online and tweeting about all the shenanigans, be it great examples of cosplay, awesome art created on site, or celebrity encounters. We've put together a list of some of our favorite tweets from over the weekend.
