Brisbane Supanova has a brand new venue – the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. This new location has a new, air-conditioned bubble, which is great for heavy costumes in Australian spring/summer heat. My photos of some the Brisbane Supanova cosplayers are an example of the great talent on display.
Supanova is a popular culture convention, which invites guests to meet stars from movies and see detailed cosplay.
On the convention floor, I once again asked several cosplayers for photograps – here’s a preview. A sample set, before I post more convention photos on Monday and Tuesday.
This Supanova brought with it talented teams and individuals. Attention to detail and sewing skills were exemplary.
Part 1 of my Brisbane Supanova 2013 photos. What follows are some colourful and skilfully constructed costumes. Keep a look out for Toko – from Ni No Kuni.
Umbral #1: The Day Dawned Twice
(This review contains spoilers for character names, but no plot spoilers)
I have not read too deeply into fantasy comics beyond series such as The Unwritten and Fables. Both of these are, however, more literary than a world building fantasy: they resemble series such as the League of Extraordinary Gentleman. Based on the opening page alone, Umbral #1 had a wonderland or fairy tale atmosphere since a girl was running through a dark labyrinth. This quickly gave way to a stronger fantasy tone with Kings, Queens, castles, bards, and sorcery.
Presenting my second batch of photos. What follows below are more cosplayers from the Gold Coast Supanova in 2013.
Another heroic Ni No Kuni cosplayer also appears, in addition to some other stellar costumes.
