Thought Monday, was a slow news day then think again: Our friends over at Supanova HQ have dropped us a line about the just past Cosplay Championships from the weekend! Yes, if you happen to be in Australia, specifically Brisbane QLD then you may have noticed a few quirky dressed guys and gals around town. Cosplay `aint just for Animae anymore.
If you missed it, the results of said competition can be found online. Supanova is a much loved pop culture and Animae festival in Australia that generally embraces all things, cartoon, comic, Sci-Fi and gaming. In fact there is probably just as many gaming gods of cosplay as there are Doctor Whos and Naritoes. Across all states in the first half of the year, Supanova can be as close as the mere mortals down under get to any E3 or PAX party, so we do like to make the most of it. the following, is a bunch of incoming information:
- The Supanova Cosplay Festival is Upon Us & Streaming LIVE!
- Red Hill Competition & Ticket Giveaway!
- Remember, Remember the 1st of December! Announcing our Initial 2011 Supa-Stars!
