Cosplay, cards and more nerd culture expo comes to Coast
Nerds, geeks, and awkward teenagers unite! The Sunshine Coast is hosting its first big event in the likes of SuperNova and ComicCon. Epic Diem is taking over the University of the Sunshine Coast on Saturday September 21 - and it's promising a mash-up of a convention, festival and all thing nerd.

One of the highlights of the day is sure to be the Epic Cosplay Show. Think of the dress up parties you had as a kid - just on a much larger scale. Amateurs and professionals are invited to put on their best costume for the competition. It's going to be broken into two main categories: Character-based costumes and theme-based costumes. There's also going to be a runway show, a professional photographer and prizes on the day. Anyone keen can do so here. For some tips on how to impress check this list out.

If you're into your card tournaments and the like then you're in for a treat. There will be contests with Yu Gi Oh, Warhammer, Magic The Gathering and more. What sounds really interesting is Battlesports. It's a live action role playing game combining the intensify of skirmish-like game play with character role play. They will be running a variety of campaigns on the day ranging form medieval to futuristic.
