On the 18th of March 2017, I had the pleasure of attending the Goulburn Comic Con event. As a first-time attendee, I didn’t know what to expect from a cosplayer or patronage standpoint but was pleasantly surprised. The competition had the option for a pre-registration. Through the convention’s website, it took a lot of the stress away for myself and ... Read More »

Storms dont dampen the Brisnova spirit

The end of 2016. The end of another convention season, or in some peoples minds – due to the recent events in the US, it’s the end of the world. For me, I think either 2 things are happening. 1. Its been a long year and people are just getting tired, busy with the Christmas lead up, or 2. The ... Read More »

In 2016 OZCC hit Sydney like a wrecking ball of pop culture madness! Look, I straight up loved OzCC this year. Like, it was super professional, catered well to many diverse types of people, was busy enough and big enough. Transport took a while – Glebe Island is always a bit of a trek to get to, but once I ... Read More »

SMASH 2016 Wrap-Up

2016 SMASH WRAP-UP

Beyond Cosplay was happy to be back better than ever at Rosehill Gardens for SMASH 2016. As a smaller convention sandwiched between Supanova and OZCC, it really stands out as a legitimate alternative to the big two. Given that this was its tenth Anniversary it’s clear  – its unique focus on Anime and Japanese pop culture is a winning formula for ... Read More »
