Are you a nerd? I'm not...only a little bit. But the rest of the family are into comics big time so we do all the comic related shows. Fortunately for us, Australia has seen a spike of Con's starting up in the last couple of years. I think there are 3 on in Melbourne in 2014!
Supernova was on last weekend and we went on the Saturday. Big mistake. The place was so packed you could hardly move and I felt a little claustrophobic. Next year we are definitely going on a Sunday.
Miss 5 was a beautiful Ballerina, Miss 12 as Lady Loki and Miss Cousin was a girl tiger with chicken feet. Miss 12 spent weeks making her costume, including sewing it all herself. Her Dad helped her make her sceptor and she stole a pair of my boots. After admitting defeat with numerous wire and paper mache attempts, I bought her handmade Loki helmet hat from Etsy!
"But Mum I don't know who this is! Is it supposed to be a teddybear or something?"
I told him no touching the fembots.
With Master Chief
Fighting Loki....as Lady Loki. Yes, it's confusing.
This guy said he spent a year making his astounding Iron Man costume.
This rabbit was evil. So evil looking the kids were drawn to it.......
I still don't know.......
If you have tweenie aged kids then you know this is Slender.
Storm. Check her eyes! Creepy!
And Miss 5 LOVED Princess Peach.
Her husband was Mario and their baby was dressed as a mushroom.....so cute!
As for me, I was happy to find several Kawaii themed stalls inside the building to look at. I found a stall with super cheap Erstwilder jewellery and $5 super hero brooches. There was also steampunk clothing to drool over and Baby Burgers mayo chips to eat.....so I ended up being pretty entertained.
Next up, Comic Con in July!
