Oran Con 2017

On Saturday 27 May 2017, I had the pleasure of being a store holder at Oran Con 3 held at Oran Park Podium.

From Disney Princesses to Pirates of the Caribbean, they were out in force to instill the cosplay spirit ... Read More »

SMASH 2016 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.

Marie’s cosplay adventures at Supanova, Sydney Olympic Park

It’s finally here! Supanova has descended at Sydney Olympic Park and no stone left unturned on guests, attendees, vendors, artists – both local and internationally – and of course, the cosplayers.
