Brisbane band Boss Fight will provide electric entertainment with the event website proclaiming they will bring you 'amped-up versions of classic video game tunes and DJs, trivia, retro arcade games, film screenings, a cosplay prom and free refreshments.'
You can enter the Cosplay Prom Competition on the night, but just to be sure you don't get too carried away with the role play check out the New Years Geek Cosplay and Weaponry Guidelines about weapon safety.
