Supernova Melbourne!

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.

Fighting 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 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 I ended up being pretty entertained.
Next up, Comic Con in July!


  1. So fun!!! I wouldn't classify myself as a nerd/geek in the fandom sense too much, but I do certainly enjoy seeing others dress up and channel their fave characters. That's uber cute about the lady who went as Princess Peach costuming her baby as a wee mushroom.

  2. I went on Sunday and it was definitely less packed than Saturday! Still busy though! :)

  3. I'm a huge nerd but I've never done a dress-up/cos-play thing. Seriously considering it though! Haha!
