Supanova Pop Culture Expo is, so they say, “where the adoring public comes face to face with Supa-Star celebrities and the creative talent that inspire their imaginary worlds under one big roof”.
It’s on in Sydney from June 15-17 at the Sydney Showground. This year’s event is the tenth anniversary and has a pretty significant line-up of celebrities to chat with and gain autographs from.
I’m not going. While I’d be interested in going just to take a look, I’m just not the sort of geek who’s willing to pay to see actors from movies. All respect to those who are, but it just ain’t me.
But the event I’m going to be sad to be missing is Cosplay Chess. You have to love a game which includes a rule which says:
If your character is a character that doesn’t fight, for example C3P0 from Star Wars, you can call upon someone else to fight for you. Using the said example, C3P0 could call upon Darth Vader or Chewbacca to fight in his place…
Now that does sound entertaining.
