Sydney Adventures – Supanova Pop culture Festival

This past weekend marked one of my favourite events of the year – Supanova!!

For those of you who haven’t attended, Supanova is Australia’s pop culture festival/expo… basically where a whole bunch of fans get together and dress up, meet guest celebrities, buy collectables and have a whole heap of fun!  I love it because it incorporates several of my obsessions – dressing up and costumes, makeup, fandom and collectables.

As in previous years, I was attending to help my wonderful friend Emma, owner of The Makeup Wardrobe http://www.themakeupwardrobe.com

This has its perks, as she is in the business of making people look good (and paying me in makeup 🙂 Check out some of her creations this year:

The big draw cards this year were David Hasselhoff and Carrie Fisher, so it was a really well attended event, the first day in particular was absolutely crazy busy! As I was a worker I didn’t go in for signings or photos, but was more than content to check out, what is IMHO the best part of the event – other people’s costumes! Here are some faves:

'Lady Joker'

I take my hat off to the effort put into the outfits – it is really mind blowing, and warms my heart that I am not the only one who loves dress ups!

A quick wander around the stalls on the afternoon of Day 1 also led to the discovery of ‘I Heart Guts’ –  http://iheartguts.com/shop/ – a stall of plush body organs, t-shirts and other novelties (this is much more fabulous than it sounds!) – here are some items I couldn’t resist:

Overall, a hilarious weekend full of lots of eye candy, ideas and enthusiasm for all manner of nerdly (and I mean this with the utmost fondness!) pursuits. A fantastic way to spend a rotten, cold rainy weekend.

Bring on the next festival!
