Oz Comic-Con is back in Melbourne this June long weekend and I have a family pass to giveaway to one lucky reader.
We’ve been going to Oz Comic-Con for a number of years now and it’s become a permanent fixture in the kiddo’s calendar, along with her birthday and Christmas. Yes, she really looks forward to it as much as a visit from Santa!
Emma really enjoys planning her cosplay, and I must admit, I really love making her costumes. We always have fun taking photos with other cosplayers on the show floor and watching the Cosplay parades.
Not into Cosplay? Don’t worry, Oz Comic-Con Melbourne has something for all lovers of pop culture – appearances by film and television stars, comic book artists and voice actors; gaming demonstrations, creative workshops and master classes; and hard-to-find exclusive merchandise from vendors.
There’s also a number of fun features for the whole family to enjoy. A family activity room in which younger children can take part in arts and crafts activities, kids comic artist workshops and a dedicated Kids Cosplay Competition for kids who love to dress up and show off their costumes.
What we’re looking forward to at this year’s Oz Comic-Con Melbourne
- Watching the Australian Championships of Cosplay – where the best cosplayers in Australia vie for the national title and a chance to represent Australia internationally. The costumes are always amazing.
- Making new cosplay friends – Chatting and taking photos with other cosplayers is really a highlight of the event for Emma. It’s exciting to see how passionate people are about their favourite characters, and everyone is so generous with their time, knowledge and encouragement. The cosplay community is amazing.
- Kids Cosplay Parade – Emma has entered every year, and it’s awesome to see her up on stage proudly strutting her stuff.
Here are some of our highlights from last year’s event – Oz Comic-Con Melbourne 2017
Who will Emma dress up as this year? The decision is still not finalised but I’ve got a feeling it will be a character from the Harry Potter universe (her current pop culture obsession).
