OzCC Returns to Perth
2023 marks the return of Oz Comic Con to Perth, as their last event was hosted in 2017. Other cities across Australia still hosted Oz Comic Con, and in the time they were away from Perth and Adelaide, OzCC has changed ownership from ReedPop to Expertise Events.
With a packed show floor and schedule, attendees experienced a full weekend bursting with flavour including Q&A panels, free play gaming opportunities and tournaments thanks to the Australian E-sports League, workshops, and lashings of retail opportunities with exclusive pop culture merchandise that can’t be found anywhere else.
Over the course of the Saturday, I played host as one of Oz Comic Con’s official photographer! Unfotunately, due to other commitments, I was not able to be at Oz Comic Con on the Sunday.
I was a part of the 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!
The Cosplay Central Photo Wall was bustling with cosplayers as Perth’s leading photographers in cosplay were allocated two hour timeslots. Other photographers included Robinson Flowers Photography, Vespa Photography, Snap Happy Ian, and Vaporwaeb.
The photo wall was an opportunity for cosplayers to have their photo taken and immortalise their cosplays!
I would like to give a special thank you to the people of Oz Comic Con and Expertise Events for having me on board as their photographer on the mini pop-up photo wall.
Want more in 2023? Adelaide will have their event on June 3-4, Melbourne in June 10-11, Canberra in August 5-6, Brisbane in 16-17, and Sydney in September 23-24.
Perth Oz Comic Con was an amazing experience with an entire weekend’s worth of fun to be had, but for now, Perth will have to wait until April 6-7, 2024.
