Brisbane Supanova 2014

My final convention for the year was of course Brisbane’s Supanova, now held at the much nicer Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. No more fighting the November heat, watching cosplayers melt away all while trying to manoeuvre through cramped spaces this time round. With the new fully enclosed venue, we stayed cool and shaded from the sun and enjoyed the convention’s new space. There were lots of regular vendors plus a few new ones and it was great to see so many well put-together cosplays. Below are my photos from the day 🙂
