Oz Comic Con – Brisbane 2014

Last Saturday we headed to the city to attend the first Brisbane Oz Comic Con! While our main goal of the day was to get the last of our SG-1 autographs from the lovely Chris Judge, we also wanted to check out how it fared against other Brisbane conventions (mainly Supanova LBR) and what the stalls had to offer in the form of precious loot! Photos of the event were of course taken to share just a slice of what I came across on the day ๐Ÿ™‚

Oz Comic Con Brisbane 2014 - Loot
Our modest loot from the day – Boyfriend got a samurai sword based off Inuyasha’s Tessaiga. I bought the first manga from the series ‘Say I Love You’ which I’ve been reading online.

I know there was a lot of promotion behind this event and I think they pulled off a really decent convention with great guest stars and good variety of stalls with a bit of something for everybody. The only thing I was kinda disappointed about (and this is just a personal thing) was there wasn’t many anime figurines in stalls and those that did had pretty limited stock. All in all I think it was definitely worth checking out and I hope it comes back next year bigger and better.
