I attended Supanova April 2016 .It was my first comic convention I was nervous didn’t know what to expect but I wanted to go and I wanted to meet some peeps and my mate Kath wanted to go too so I pushed myself to go. I am glad I did I enjoyed it but I found it expensive in some ways . Entry fee $40 was fine but paying $60 per photo with a guest when you barely get to say hi to the guest then quickly have to leave is a bit expensive but if I am honest “would I do it again? ” yep i was happy meeting Manu Bennett(Spartacus, Arrow) and stoked to meet and get a photo with Burn Gorman(Turn Washington Spies, Game Of Thrones) btw he’s so British 😂😏😍
I didn’t buy anything but it’s was fun browsing around and seeing people’s cosplays . I didn’t go in a costume I was unprepared and undecided BUT I did wear my cat ears which I was happy with and tada I ended up getting some free face paint – enter supanova as me > leave as Luna from Sailor moon. (As you can see in the above images )
If your a someone who loves “geeky” stuff, tv shows or movies from comics, into perhaps into gaming or possibly looking for something new and fun to do with bonus of being able to cosplay(dress up) then you should take a browse and see when a comic convention maybe near you !
Proud to say this also ticks off one of my goals as well!
