Supanova Expo Perth 2013

Last weekend I attended Supanova in Perth, an annual expo on all things pop culture. Each year they have awesome film and tv stars in attendance, along with signings and panels throughout the day, a vast array of stalls selling merchandise any fan could dream of, competitions, interactive activities and of course, cosplayers galore! I went with some of my closest Aussie friends, one of whom dressed up as Rose from the ever so popular web comic Homestuck and made her costume almost entirely from scratch. I wasn't planning on cosplaying as anyone but earlier on in the week I had picked up this sailor-esque dress from Dangerfield and so decided to wear it. Throughout the day I had the likes of Bradley James and Eoin Macken from Merlin ask me if I was Sailor Moon though so perhaps it was a more effective 'costume' then I thought (a full outfit post will be up next). 

Here are some of the coolest costumes we found! Do you recognise any of these characters?

Last but not least, some of the film and television actors that made their way down under for the convention. Everyone was just so easy going and lovely, I sincerely hope they all enjoyed their time in Australia and mingling with the fans here.

Have you ever been to any conventions like this? I'm definitely going to look into ones in the UK now that I live there.
