Comiccon


Comic-Con brings up visions of the Big Bang Theory, cosplay and hoards of fans. Traditionally American, Comic-Con is now in Australia and we're all happy about it.

This year Comic-Con is in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. The Brisbane days are 6th and 7th September at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

And the lineup of actors and voice-over actors is awesome.

Cue in - Orlando Bloom. Yes, that's right the notoriously optimistic hard-working Elf from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings is headlining the Brisbane ComicCon in a move by organisers that is sure to make his millions of female fans happy.

But that's not all. Brisbane ComicCon is jam packed with an awesome lineup of stars.

Nicholas Brendon - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Emma Caulfield - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Percy Daggs III - Veronica Mars
Jason Dohring - Veronica Mars

Alongside this huge lineup of actors are some fantastic voice actors including voices from Squidward Tentacles, Spongebob Squarepants, Goofy, Jim Cummings the voice of Winnie the Pooh, and Monica Rial the voice of Bulma from Dragon Ball Z.

For the first time this year official merchandise will be on offer too. It's available online for those not fortunate enough to be able to go. Check out the t-shirts, hoodies, laynards and other items.



Of course cosplay and dress up is not really an option, it's a requirement for a great day. If you want the full experience then jump in head first. Experiences where you get to wander around dressed as an out of this world character along with other likeminded friends only happen once or twice a year. So get in the mood and have fun. Don't forget the usual weapons policy when designing your costume.

For only $30 purchased online or $35 at the gate for a daily ticket, Oz ComicCon Brisbane is great value. Weekend passes are $50 online. Buy tickets on the official website to save money. Children under 4 to 12 get free tickets when accompanied by an adult, and kids under 4 are free. Check out the website for the conditions on the children's tickets.



Who said money can't buy happiness? They obviously haven't seen the ticketing for Oz Comic-Con. This year money can buy happiness in the form of experiences with some of your favourite actors. Like Orlando Bloom? You can buy an Orlando Bloom Experience for $450, or for the hardcore fans, a ticket at a cocktail event Orlando will be at for $600. So Orlando isn't for you but you're a William Shatner fan? The William Shatner Experience is $280 or the Ultimate Shatner Experience is $400.

If that's not to your taste what about a Stargate Dinner, a Warehouse 13 dinner, a Veronica Mars dinner, a Whedonverse Dinner or a Booboo Stewart Dinner? Tickets to these are all available for $200 each. The Stargate Dinner is $250 a ticket but is unfortunately already sold out.
