So in America it is fairly well known that conventions like SDCC, New York ComicCon and DragonCon are established as pretty much (some of) the BIGGEST cons in the world (outside of Asia) for cosplay nuts to descend upon.
Let me introduce you to SUPANOVA pop culture festival which is held all over Australia and can pull 30 000 people through it's door in the first hour in it's smallest city. It is held in Brisbane (huge), Melbourne, (Huge), Sydney (MEGA) and Perth (well, it's Perth.)
It's FU**ING NUTS for geeks, freaks, gronks and nerds and if you're into anime, toys, cartoons and tv celebs then this is the place to go.
|Hot-cha! Make sure you take a professional camera-guy who is tripping balls like I did.|
When it comes to anime/superhero/tv fans in costume...well....if you weren't in costume, you were the minority. I would say 8-in-10 were in costume and most people went to a lot of effort.....although I prefer the screwballs who don't and the people who just don't give a fu** myself. People in $3000 iron man costumes aren't as impressive as guys in a cardboard box with a bucket on their head with "Irun Mun" written in crayon on the chest. (My opinion only)
Chinese Batman, bald, skinny Superman and big Ms Marvel were favourites for me.
|I love this guy!|
|My cameraman loves these girls.|
|BEST-COSTUME-EVER Great Sage Equal of Heaven!|
|Remember..hot here in Oz. Also, how does April look so plastic? It was amazing. Also, people immediately assume people in these costumes are blokes.|
Poor, angry, face punching bastard. Packa packa packa packa.
