Cosplay – Melbourne 2021
Unfortunately, international restrictions have rendered the Odyssey’s Grand Prize of a trip to Dragon Con in Atlanta unviable for the time being, and as such, the decision has been made to postpone the remaining heats in the competition until we have more information on when travel will resume. Our City Heroes from the incomplete 2019/2020 Odyssey will still be eligible and in the running for the Grand Prize once the competition recommences.
We hope that things will return to normal and we’re able to restart this amazing competition in 2022. Stay tuned to our social media channels for updates as they happen!
This tour will see some temporary changes to our regular Cosplay Competition, with the Supanova Cosplay Showcase running in its place! Blending together elements from fan-favourite activities, the Supanova Cosplay Competition and Cosplay Dash, our Cosplay Showcase is the place to show off your best work!
Whether you’ve been working on something awesome over the last 12 months, or simply have an old favourite you’d like to ‘wow’ us with, the Supanova Cosplay Showcase is open to cosplayers of all levels of experience to get on stage and strike a pose!
Registration for the Supanova Cosplay Showcase is now open! Massive thanks as always to our sponsor Lumin’s Workshop, whose passion for crafting is stitched into cosplay at Supanova!
Cosplay HQ is the hub of all cosplay activity at Supanova! You can come along to meet Cosplay Ambassador Breathless-ness, and check in for the cosplay competitions. (Sadly due to COVID-19 restrictions, the lounge and library are currently unavailable.)
Cosplay HQ is also the home of the Cosplay Repair Station – We’ve all had that dreadful moment at a convention: a costume malfunction, usually at the worst time. Something that was stuck when you left home has become dramatically unstuck. Something needs sewing. Something needs hot glue. Something needs pinning, stapling, or all of the above.
Thankfully, the Cosplay HQ Repair station is here to help over the weekend for all cosplay repair problems. Our skilled team is able to assess and repair your costume, give you quality advice, and get you out and ready for your photo shoots and onto the stage for the competition.
Getting a costume together in time for an event is an achievement well worth celebrating by immortalising it with a fabulous photo! Our cosplay photobooth will be running all weekend and it’s a fantastic opportunity to come along, strike a pose, and grab a photo. Our featured photographer Steamkittens will be there to help, along with local photographers.
The Supanova weekend is jam-packed with workshops and panels to help you start out in cosplay, or develop your skills further. There’s always something new to learn, whether it’s sewing techniques, prop-building or wig styling! On the other hand, if you’d rather teach, submit your panel idea here!
