That’s right, William Shatner will be in attendance at the convention, being held in Melbourne on the 6th and the 7th of July.

Interview With A Cosplayer

It wasn’t until I lived at student accommodation, which regularly held themed parties, that I realized – I love dressing up in costume. Mine were usually cobbled together from op shops, due to a complete lack of practical skills, but I always admired those with the skills to make stuff themselves. Seeing all the amazing costumes at Oz Comic Con, where very few looked to be sourced from...

Cosplay at Oz Comic Con

A huge part of conventions is the incredible effort fans go to recreate themselves as their favourite characters, and Oz Comic Con was no different. There was some truly inspired cosplay work to see, both around the show floor and in the parade and competition. Melbourne has a massive, very active community of Japanese culture and anime fans, and a lot of costumes fit that theme. I may not have al...

Armin Shimerman & Max Grodenchik Panel, Oz Comic Con 2012

Panels with two people are often the most entertaining, allowing them to play off each other. The history between Armin Shimerman and Max Grodenchik, playing the Ferengi brothers Quark and Rom in Star Trek, gave them rich ground to draw from during their panel at Oz Comic Con in Melbourne. They discussed how the makeup and the masks influence the characters they were playing. Armin noted that he f...

Julie Benz Panel, Oz Comic Con 2012

The lovely Julie Benz is known to most people for playing two prominent, very different characters: Rita, the sweet, unsuspecting wife of our favourite serial killer, Dexter, and the cunning vampire seductress Darla, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her panel at Oz Comic Con this weekend kicked off with questions about the death of both characters during the shows. Julie discussed her reaction to Rita...

Impressions of Oz Comic Con 2012

The first impression I had of the Oz Comic Con was ‘oh wow that is the longest line I have ever seen’. The event was clearly in huge demand, and seemed to be somewhat over capacity, given that they could have comfortably fit everyone in a sporting arena. It is no surprise that the turn out was that massive though, with Stan Lee’s appearance, as well as Patrick Stewart, and just the simple fact tha...

Stan Lee Panel at Oz Comic Con 2012

Almost everyone in the world, regardless of background, their dedication to comic books, and how much they know about pop culture, recognizes the name Stan Lee. Immediately once you hear the name you think of Marvel comics, Spider-man, or just a cool looking guy with tinted glasses. The legacy of Stan Lee surpasses any one person, or generation, he is responsible for creating something that has to...

Armin Shimerman Interview, Oz Comic Con Melbourne 2012

While he’s best known for being the face behind the heavy makeup of Quark from Star Trek, Armin Shimerman has had an illustrious career in theatre, film, television, and more recently, video games. You might remember him as Principal Snyder in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dr Nefarious in Ratchet & Clank, the Salarian Councillor in the Mass Effect series, and of course, the enigmatic antagonist, A...

Sean Maher Panel at Oz Comic Con 2012

Firefly is a massively popular franchise, despite the fact that it had far less episodes than a lot of television shows. Sean Maher played the doctor of the show, Simon Tam, and we were lucky enough to see him in a panel at Oz Comic Con 2012. Sean Maher talked about how Simon had changed through the timeline of Firefly, and in Serenity. He seemed quite keen on his development of the character, and...

Patrick Stewart and Daniel Stewart Panel at Oz Comic Con 2012

One of the most eminent television and movie actors involved in massively popular science fiction franchises, as well as a comic book franchise, is Sir Patrick Stewart. Not only was Sir Patrick Stewart in the panel, but he was accompanied by his son Daniel Stewart. This was one of the few panels that had two people doing the panel at the same time, and they had a fantastic chemistry going between ...

Fran Kranz Panel at Oz Comic Con 2012

Fran Kranz, famous for his role as Topher in Dollhouse, actually did come off as the embodiment of an actor from the Whedonverse. He’s funny and a little self-deprecating, and quite humble. He also had so much to say about the story of Dollhouse, little things that he’d thought that went on behind the scenes and his own narrative of things that hadn’t specifically come up in the show. This dedicat...
