Oz Comic-Con 2016 is Coming! Win a Family Pass to Attend in Your State...


Oz Comic-Con 2016 has finally rolled around and it's time to brace yourselves for all the fun, colour and excitement this sensational event entails. If you love comic heroes, television shows, cult classics, video gaming, anime, manga, fantasy, sci-fi or animation (there's something in there for all of us), then this is the event you've been waiting for!

Whether you are a complete 'noob,' have briefly heard of Oz Comic-Con at some stage, or you are a total geek who positively hangs-out for this amazing two-day extravaganza to rock-around each year, you'll find this a fabulous day out. Everyone should attend this!

Unleash your inner-geek!


Oz Comic-Con is a hugely-popular national event visiting five cities in Australia in 2016: Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. It's a weekend filled with so much fun, where you can mingle with other like-minded peeps who adore geekery with the same passion as yourself - usually more! (Tip: Make sure you take your camera along with you.)

At this all-ages event, see your favourite TV shows, film and comic book characters in all kinds of exhibits and celebrations. There are opportunities to meet big-name international stars at each venue and the super-dedicated fanatic can even purchase tokens for personal meetings and photo opportunities with their biggest icons.

For full details on which star is visiting each State's venue, visit the official Oz Comic-Con website.

 
While dressing up, (also referred to as cosplay for the uninitiated) is not compulsory to attend, it sure is fun, and really reflects all the excitement of the convention. Kids of all ages, teens and their parents, even seniors, are typically spotted in costume everywhere. If you do decide to go along in costume, you won't be out of place and you won't regret it! Everyone is more than willing to pose for photos in character, and the efforts some go to with their outfits can, at times, be breathtaking.
 
Another tip for attending this event: Take plenty of cash along. There are stalls galore that you will want to browse and buy from, plus food. 
 
Visitors can purchase comic books new and old, art work, limited edition memorabilia, jewellery, merchandise, clothing and toys and so many other unique items.
 
Expect to be surprised too. Last year we 'accidently' met with the Australian props man behind Doctor Who and Star Wars; the very same one responsible for building the Tardis, R2D2 and so many other huge film icons. (Yes, they're all made on Aussie soil and shipped to their international locations.) We had some fantastic photo opportunities too.
 
Children under four are granted free entry and one free child's ticket is issued with every paying adult's ticket for children aged between 5-12. There are a range of ticketing packages to suit everyone and every budget. You can attend just one day or both. For more details about the program and to purchase tickets, visit the Oz Comic-Con website.

  2. Despite being a life-long geek, I've never been to a Comic-Con before. I'd love to take my nephew, who is obsessed with Pokemon, and my wife, who is a massive Dr Who fan. I've loved Star Wars since I was a small child, so that's what I'm most liking forward to: Star Wars stuff. - Darryn Jones

  9. Karlene- we attended last year with our 8 year old son, not quite sure what to expect. We were there for hours and hours, had fabulous photos taken, spent a fortune on cool stuff, and wished we had been in costume. We'd love to attend this year too please!
