Supanova 2010!

April 14, 2010 at 12:13 pm (Uncategorized)

Ok, finally, the post about my big weekend. So firstly, there was an overdue assignment, supanova, 2 birthdays and karaoke. Now I have already talked about karaoke, so I will move on.

First birthday: was nice, really late night but great, not much too really say, except the place was really nice but a bit expensive, and the company was fun.

Next: Supanova! Was up at 6 to be there by 8 for the open at 10. When we got in line we were just around the corner. By 10 the line was down the street, across the road, around another corner and out of sight. Apparently both lines were like that O.o

Anyway, while we were in line we saw many interesting cosplays and things. Some of the highlights included standing next to a shy guy and a Dr Mario, seeing an Eva (Neon Genesis) and seeing a Stormtrooper get a hug from a free hugs guy.

Once we got in there were many amazing cosplay costumes. Some of my highlights were: the 5th Doctor, members of the Stargate team, no face from spirited away, various Ghostbusters, Dark Magician Girl, a group of pokemon (including Jigglypuff, Charmander, Squirtle, Cubone and Pikachu)  Yugi, Pegusus, Nick the Mysic Force Red Ranger (luv that guy!) Shaun from Shaun of the Dead and some guys dressed in Steam punk.

Ha, so we wandered around and did some shopping, got chased by a dalek and lived, and I got caught in the crowd in between Pikachu and Squirtle.   

The main attraction for me is the cosplay. Ppl are so passionate and they go to such lengths to recreate what can seem like an impossible costume. I’m particularly impressed when ppl choose something unusual or unexpected. I’m just annoyed I don’t know them all.

So anyway, first was the madman national comp. they were all great, and the winner was amazing, but one guy stood out. William and his bike. It was hilarious, he and the host kept bouncing off each other and it was great 🙂

Then they had technical difficulties, ugh. So they played us youtube clips, then the cosplay song 😀 But the clips, it was mad, we went crazy for keyboard cat! Of all things, ah, sometimes mob mentality is a strange thing. Somewhere in there we went crazy for a cute bunny!! Must love the cute! Must do it! Finally we saw the slap chop remix. That is crazy! It has the shamwow guy with a new product, the slap chop. Frankly I’m surprised I haven’t gone and bought one yet. LINK!

Sadly it went a bit long an kinda killed the mood. They also showed one making spam sandwiches, which was odd.

So finally we got to the massive amount of other cosplayers. Again, all great, but my highlights were: Abby from NCIS, All 9 sailor scouts, Kids playing The Riddler and Poison Ivy, GLaDOS, Karmen rider! Ho-oh, Alien (oh it was good!), Bayonetta (proving she can look awesome without huge boobs), Spirit (of course :), the Stig! A contamination guy from Monsters inc, and Rimmer from Red Dwarf with holo-virus.

So, after all that, it was time to go home. Got the train with 2 vocaloids and a Timelord, who knew Timelords took the train? Maybe he left his TARDIS somewhere. 😛

Next day my arms can out in allergy rash cos of the dagwood dog 😦

Somehow finished the bad English assignment for Monday, and back to uni. So there you go, lots of fun 😀
