By now, you should now my absolute favourite thing at conventions is Cosplay spotting! Here are my absolute favourites from Oz Comic Con held in Sydney for the first time ever.
With a 'general' theme of pop culture, we saw costumes from all genres from video games, cartoons, anime and film... And a lot that I have never seen before!
Best Cartoon Character
The first time EVER I have seen a Simpsons cosplay and this one was a doozy. Milhouse is one of my favourites... something about that blue hair!
Best Johnny Depp
My first time spotting Edward Scissorhands, doesn't it just remind you that you need a haircut?
Best LingerieProps for these girls being very creative and having the figures to pull off this Batman & Joker cosplay!
Guardians of the Galaxy was THE movie of the year - at least for me! So having the duo of Rocket Raccoon and Groot was obviously going to do well in my books. Extra kudos as a Baby Groot is still not commercially available yet, and this would've been a DIY job!
Best NakednessI have wasted plenty of hours, days and weeks on the Sims. For those who have a life, when a Sims gets naked for the shower or snuggle time, their body becomes pixelated... like this
Best 90's Reference
My childhood was filled with watching 90's sitcoms including Full House, Step by Step and of course, Family Matters featuring the delightfully nerdy Steve Urkel. Did I do that?
Best PirateAre you ready kids? "Aye Aye Captain"
I Can't hear you "AYE AYE CAPTAIN"
This costume is amazing, it is Patchy the Pirate form the Spongebob Squarepants theme song!
I attended Oz Comic Con as a media guest.
