Let your inner nerd roam loud and proud

Every year we wait with bated breath to learn who will grace our shores for the cosplay nerdfest that is Supanova, and this year’s line-up doesn’t disappoint.

Goonies and Lord of the Rings alumni Sean Astin is headlining a packed line-up which also features Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bones leading man David Boreanaz. They will be joined by Corey Michael Smith, who currently stars as the Riddler in Gotham, Marie Avgeropoulos from The 100, Tom Hopper from Black Sails and Game of Thrones, Jessica Harmon from The 100 and iZombie and plenty more.

As always, there’ll be meet and greet opportunities, panel discussions, workshops and cosplay geniuses at work all weekend. It’s also a good opportunity to gawp at some wild costumes and stock up on zines and comics from the people who create them.

Supanova hits the Melbourne Showgrounds April 28 to 30. Tickets are on sale now.
