Unleash your inner geek at Oz Comic-Con Perth 2016
Oz Comic-Con is once again heading west for its fourth time in Perth and it's bringing some big names along with it.
Get ready for autographs and photographs with your favourite stars as well as celebrity panels, cosplay competitions and lots of exhibitors on the show floor as Oz Comic-Con opens from April 2nd-3rd at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. Doors open from 9:00am and close at 6:00pm show day.
If you're unable to make it to see your preferred guest, worry not, you can buy autograph absentee packs from the online store for most of the guests in attendance. The prices for these vary depending on the guest but usually average around $40- $50.
Some guests include:
Jim Beaver- Supernatural (Bobby Singer), Karl Urban- Bones (Star Trek (2009)) Lucy Lawless - Xena: Warrior Princess Cody Christian- Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf
Ticket prices can be purchased at the Oz Comic-Con online store. General tickets can be purchased for $30 for a day pass, otherwise if you are a hardcore fan, platinum pass tickets can be purchased from $600 and these get patrons to the front of cues and front seating for panels. Tickets sold at the door vary in price and may be more expensive than tickets purchased online. Please keep in mind that onsite ticketing does not start until 9:30am and also, please read the online FAQ's for more information.
One of the biggest draws at Oz Comic-Con is the cosplay competitions. For those of you who don't know, cosplay is when individuals create and don costumes of their favourite characters from any field (e.g. video games, film and television, etc.) and engage with other fans. Come and see some very talented individuals compete with some impressive cosplay creations at the Championships of Cosplay competition.
