Imagine a place where comics meet fantasy. Where video gaming collides with PC, in the best possible way.
Where the world of warcraft and wizardry meets the realms of sci-fi and anime. A place where you can be five different characters at once, and live a life you never dreamt you could live.
Well friends, you’re imagining Supanova!
For over 16 years, Supanova Comic Con and Gaming has been bringing the goods to Australia. The annual expos are spread out across the year, taking place in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.
But Supanova isn’t just about dressing up and having a good time. The expos provide a base from which young gamers can grow their skills and knowledge by meeting, listening to, and chatting with inspirational industry leaders. They run a variety of exhibitions, panel discussions, live showcases and demonstrations for everyone to enjoy.
There’s also a massive lineup of actors, authors, animators, stuntmen, comic book creators and even radio personalities and musicians. So whether you’re into gaming, comic books, anime, fantasy, sci-fi or a healthy, well-rounded mix of everything, there’s something for everyone!
Join in on a Q&A session with Craig Phillips; renowned illustrator and recent graphic novel creator – he’s worked with Neil Gaiman! Get your photo taken with Christopher Judge and try not to melt at the knees when he says your name in that deep, silky voice. Ask Dr Karl Kruszelnicki ALL of your burning science questions and try not to stutter with nervous excitement when you meet Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. Head over to the website to find out which other stars will be gracing your local Supanova!
And don’t forget to get sewing if you don’t already have your costume sorted! This year, Sydney fans are hoping to crack the Guinness World Record title for the largest gathering of people dressed as Star Wars characters. So get your Leia buns sorted, polish your light sabers and make sure your droid parts are well-oiled because they need 800 people attending the event to break the record. For dates and more information, see here. We’ve included a few Star Wars themed costume ideas to get you started.
