Last weekend many of us went to Supanova 2015, to see different panels, buy lots of anime, comics, and stuff and just have a great time. Overall, we had around 36 members go according to our Meetup event and a bunch of us having lunch on the day.
It was really enjoyable this year, with many famous actors being at the show such as Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Christopher Judge (Teal’c from Stargate), etc.
I personally had a great time. It all started with wondering around the Convention Centre to see what is on offer this year. I bought a Canon camera before the event to take some good shots, so I had the opportunity to enjoy the cosplay of others by taking photos of it.
After previewing the floor, the shops on offer and what is going on, I went to lunch with some other members at Burger Urge at Southbank. While the Meetup app played havoc on giving our member’s appropriate directions, the burgers were great and I enjoyed catching up and having lunch with others who were at Supanova.
The rest of the day was made up of two panels – one with the actor from Napoleon Dynamite, and one with actors and a storyboard artist from Mad Max: Fury Road. I found them most enjoyable. In particular, the Mad Max: Fury Road panel was great because the panellists talked about how dangerous shooting the movie was, and how close and collegiate the acting fraternity is. I really enjoyed this insight, something which you only get to see at Supanova!
Here are a collection of these events. Overall, it was alot of fun, and I thank for all our members who were involved!
