Crowds, cosplay and hot weather at Supanova Brisbane 2013

Supanova - Brisbane 2013
Supanova – Brisbane 2013

It was great to be able to attend this years Brisbane Supanova on Saturday after being unable to come last year. Every time I go the weather seems to get hotter and the crowds seem to get bigger. There was also lots of cosplayers of course and I admire their efforts to wear full body costumes in the November heat! It’s interesting to see the trends within the community, lots of Batmans (batmen?) and Gotham related characters, Attack on Titan uniforms with full vertical maneuvering equipment and  many more that made me realize I’m not up to date with some pop culture references *sigh*.

Anyway, here are my photos from the day!

Supanova Brisbane 2013 - Inside the Exhibition Hall
Inside the Exhibition Hall – this is actually one of two buildings the convention was held over. The other one is the first picture of this post

I couldn’t leave the convention empty handed and ended up buying two new figurines to add to our collection – a Nendoroid Feris from Steins gate and a Lelouch from Code Geass.

Supanova Brisbane 2013 - Lelouch from Code Geass
Lelouch from Code Geass – This guy was such a pain just to put together and place in the cabinet that I didn’t want to move any other figurines in case he fell apart, hence the two girls in front

Looking forward to next year’s Supanova that will be in air con at the Brisbane Convention Centre ^_^.
