Supanova Pop Culture Expo – Perth 2016
The event played host for stars and celebrities of various mediums, Exhibitors, Artists in The Alley, the Madman National Cosplay Competition 2016 Western Australia entrants, and awesome interactive competitions throughout the weekend which include the Supanova Cosplay Competition on Saturday and Sunday.
Highlight appearances included the Original Green Power Ranger, Jason David Frank, Travis Fimmel (Vikings, Warcraft), Shannen Doherty (Charmed, Beverly Hills, 90210), Holly Marie Combs (Charmed, Pretty Little Liars), James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Torchwood), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, Goonies), and many more!
Armoured Heaven, Australia’s Premiere Toy Gun Store, came over to host a stall in Perth for the first time, and was a massive success. With many of their toy guns selling out, it was clear their presence in WA was way overdue! I had the pleasure working with them over the weekend behind the stall, alongside with the beautiful Maria S of Audette Jupiter, who flew over from Melbourne to be in Perth over the weekend!
On the Saturday morning when the weather cleared up, I was the main photographer for the X-men United Photo gathering on the Saturday, and it was an opportunity to interact with many of the cosplayers and con-goers that I only know through their online presence. Later in the evening I received messages from people telling me they saw me in the background on the Channel 7 News!
I had the opportunity to photograph Joey along with Brad of Jack Action, who on that weekend marked his 10th year cosplaying as various characters from Metal Gear Solid characters!
