Oz Comic Con Perth: Cosplay Roundup Day 1


WORK IN PROGRESS – MORE UPDATES TO COME!

By Hedge

Cosplay is, and always will be, a massive part of geek culture worldwide. From San Diego and New York conventions, to the guys and gals in London, to our very own conventions here in Australia: we nerds love to put on a bit of a spectacle now and then.

So it’s no surprise that the inaugural Oz Comic Con for Perth had its share of truly excellent cosplay and while I didn’t recognise every character and every franchise, I could seriously respect the level of effort put into the costumes and present to you some of the best from Day One of the con. Not everyone is here, there’s just too many of you and as always some of the photos just weren’t up to scratch.

If you’re a cosplayer and you’re not amongst the ranks below, come find us tomorrow at Day Two: me and Funk’ll be there from nine.

Best Iron man I have seen in ever. Light up chest and everything.

The look of adoration on Harley’s face.

I recall nothing about this man. Or anything else. What convention?

Sexy Maid Deadpool is my new favourite Perth cosplayer. Not only was he fully into the role of DP but, as you’ll see, he was fuckingย everywhere.

Another brilliant group – the 501st Legion. Cosplayers who raise money for kids are truly kings in my view. Plus that’s a totally rocking Fett.

Live long, and prosper.

No convention is complete without a Slave Leia. Particularly aย goodย Slave Leia.

We ran into Sexy Maid Deadpool later on, when he jumped between these two young ladies;

And again when taking shots of the Spideys! Incidentally, I was hunting for these Spider-Mans all over the damn convention. Every time I saw one, it was from a distance and by the time I got near them they had vanished into the ether. Glad I got a shot, and glad DP decided to jump in too ๐Ÿ˜€

Finn! Fionna! Finn! AND Fionna! ๐Ÿ˜€

She’s not bad, she’s just drawn that way.

Special shout out to Shay Webster, who was rocking an amazing Black Canary to her comrades Green Arrow. I’m gutted the photos I took didn’t work out because they looked stunning.ย 

If you didn’t see us today, or did and your photo isn’t here please do find us tomorrow and get another shot. We’re at the convention from opening, and would love to get even more wicked cosplayers up for everyone to see.
