Hoshi-Con is a convention made by fans, and made for fans. Whether you are interested in Anime Merchandise, Cosplay Competitions, Fandom Art or Dance and Performance groups, Hoshi Con could cater to your needs.
Also in attendance were an amazing line up of local Perth Fandom community to be featured in the Artist Alley, local Anime, Cosplay and PopCulture small business retailers.
Pictured: Hoshi-Con encouraged patrons to follow COVID-19 safety rules, and encouraged those who have COVID-19 or those told to isolate due to being a close contact to NOT attend the event.
All ticket sales were to be purchased digitally. No door sales were permitted, however tickets sales were available to be purchased online until the end of the day.
In addition to ticket sales, COVID-19 Vaccination Certificates (or proof of excemptions) and personal identification needed to be presented digitally or by physical articles.
Masks at this stage were required everywhere indoors, and while making purchases from outdoors. Signing in via the mandatory QR code scanning was required as well.
This was to adhere to the rules set by the WA State Government.

Over the course of the weekend, I played host as one of Hoshi-Con’s official photographer!
I had a dedicated mini pop-up Photo Wall, which was a massive hit to the Perth Cosplay Community. It was a busy and amazing weekend that ran on the vibrant energy of cosplayers looking forward to have their photos taken!

The drive behind both cosplay and photography is amazing and to consistently create a positive environment is one that should be applauded! I am glad to see how each convention continues to grow, alongside the community and the creativity this city has to offer!
A rare moment I had outside as I had a brief glimpse of the performances, and the sun!
I would like to give a special thank you to the people of Hoshi Au, and the Hoshi-Con Pop Culture Expo for having me on board as their photographer on the mini pop-up photo wall.
Attended on the Sunday? Photos will be ready and available soon!
Hoshi-Con was an amazing experience with an entire weekend’s worth of fun to be had, and in turn, it may bring opportunity for smaller, more local organisers across WA can host a COVID-safe environment for all fans of Pop Culture.
