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. Initial thought of stepping out to Sydney Olympic Park on a cold, wet morning makes me want to stay indoors and curl up in my fluffy Hello Kitty onesie. Instead ... Read More »

The team at Beyond Cosplay were invited to come along to the Ipswich Medieval Markets and Fantasy Faire held at Ipswich City Mall over this past weekend.

Sydney Sexpo 16′

  Out of all the conventions we have visited, nothing prepared us for a new addition to an adult lifestyle convention: Cosplay. For the first time ever, Sexpo hosted their own cosplay event, hosted by Lucie Bee and Jimmy (aka the winning geek from the 2011 season of reality show, Beauty & The Geek).  Presented in four heats over three ...

The cosplay season is underway for 2016 kicking off a few weeks ago on the Gold Coast which Beyond Cosplay was lucky enough to cover. But what to do in between that, and the next event in September? We all want to cosplay and get together with our friends as much as we can. But sometimes it’s nice to have ... Read More »

Gold Coast Supanova Wrap-Up

The beginning of another Con season in Queensland saw the Gold Coast host yet another relatively successful Supanova. It had all the trimmings with stars, cosplay, stalls, panels, and even the cosplay parade on Sunday morning. Despite all these wonderful things, I felt as though the weekend was missing the energy of previous years. FRIDAY The Friday night saw small ... Read More »

GX Australia

So GX Australia’s just gone. I’m going to go through the general comparisons to other similar conventions, before I get to why it’s a good step for the Australian Gaming Scene. It’s important to say that I think I had some expectations of what this convention was going to be like (maybe a smaller version of Supernova combined with Mardi ... Read More »

Zed Town.. The battle might be over but the war continues..

After yet another successful Zedtown Zombie event in October they are pulling out all the stops and throwing down the bloody gauntlet and running just ONE more this year on the 13th of December. Unfortunately its on a Sunday so it doesn’t have the added spooky cache of being on a ‘Friday the 13th’ but at least most people will ... Read More »

Oz ComicCon VS EB Games Expo!

Okay so of course this is an absolutely ludicrous comparison which no journalist worth their salt should even attempt to make. Apples and Oranges. Dogs and Ponies. Capes VS DVD’s. Hell, Even a blogger like myself would be expected to know better, as one convention is ostensibly a large mainstream pop culture event which casts a wide net across every ... Read More »
