We love a superhero in this house. We even sometimes give the nasty villains a run but we have nothing on some of the quirky characters that come out to play at the Oz Comic-Con events.
This post is brought to you by Oz Comic-Con.
Before Australia even held a major comic convention, I used to watch on through forums and MySpace at the American events and it blew my mind on the commitment to character some of the general patrons held. It looked like so much fun and hours of fabulous people watching. That is why I was so excited when fan-demonium made it to our shores with Oz Comic-Con and has become so big with five major weekend events in 2016.
I have been scrolling through the guests who will be at the Sydney and Brisbane events, I know no one by name but I think that is what I love about this world. It is the sci-fi characters, the voiceover artists, the creators, the creatives, and the authors that bring in the crowds. I also love the cosplay celebrities featured. We are no longer just playing dress-ups with some of this crowd!
It is not all anime, gaming and hard-core geekery. You can spot your run of the mill characters from movies and modern pop culture.
I can confirm (after reading all the bios of course because real names don’t translate) that Maude Flanders will there! Only through the spirit of her voice of course.
Oz Comic-Con also features a Family Activity Room to cater for the younger guests with arts and crafts, competitions and much more, encouraging parents to sit back and relax while the kids have a blast. Alright, you don’t have to tell me twice!
There is just Sydney (10-11 September) and Brisbane (17-18 September) to go and for one lucky person you could be getting your whole family involved in the action for free!
I have one weekend family pass (2 adults and 2 children) to either the Sydney or Brisbane Oz Comic-Con event to give away!

I was given a family pass for my clan as well as one to giveaway to one of my readers (that’s you) in return for this post. I think Oz Comic-Con is completely rad so wanted to share it with you.
