So, Oz Comic-Con rolled through my neighbourhood over the weekend which gave me the opportunity experience firsthand a part of the geek/gaming subculture that I never have before.

The con was over both days of the weekend and featured an ample lineup of celebrities and pop culture icons, such as Melissa Joan Hart, Brent Spiner, and exclusive to the Adelaide show, Aqua man/Khal Drogo himself Jason Momoa!

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures with the celebs, apparently, they are against being photographed – I had to actually delete a photo – I did, however, get some photos of the surrounding events and some excellent cosplayers.

Check the photos out here!

I had a great time at Oz Comic-Con. It has a very different vibe, compared to other shows that I’ve been to. It’s all about having fun and celebrating everything we love about being geeks! If you have never had the chance to go, I highly recommend you give it a shot!

For those living in Melbourne, Brisbane, or Sydney that would like to know when it’s your turn, check them out on their website and book your tickets soon!
