Sydney’s biggest pop culture expo returns with cosplay and superstar meet and greets

Israeli actress Gal Gadot may have cancelled her trip to Sydney for Supanova. However, there are many other superstars on the line-up, including Hollie Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty from Charmed, Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee) and John Noble (Denethor) from Lord of the Rings and James Marsters and Julie Benz from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, plus Travis Fimmel from Vikings and Peter Facinelli from the Twilight movies.

Cartoon lovers can meet the people behind their favourite characters like Goku (voice actor Sean Schemmel) and Vegeta (Christopher Sabat) from Dragon Ball Z, as well as Finn the Human from Adventure Time (Jeremy Shada).

As always, the most fun comes in the form of dress ups. There’ll be activities like extreme cosplay chess – that’s cosplayers as the chess pieces. There’s anime trivia, the official Supanova Cosplay Competition, presented by Madman, and heaps of exhibitors filling Sydney Showground. If you think you’re geeky about pop culture, you’re sure to meet your match at Supanova.
