GIVEAWAY: Oz Comic-Con Family Weekend Pass!




Get ready to unleash your inner geek, because Oz Comic-Con is once again touring Australia! Yes, Oz Comic-Con will be visiting Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney starting later this month and I, for one, am excited! If you're into Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Star Trek, cosplaying and meeting celebrities, get out your lightsaber, because I have an Oz Comic-Con Family Weekend Pass to give away! That's right, thanks to Oz Comic-Con, you can WIN a Family Weekend Pass, valued at $150 and valid for any city (Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney)! Keep reading for how to enter.




The line-up of celebrity guests this year is impressive and even better, new guests continue to be added! Arthur Darvill (Rory from Doctor Who) has just been confirmed and Star Trek: The Next Generation's resident android, Data (aka Brent Spiner!) will also be there! Sabrina the Teenage Witch lovers will be pleased that Melissa Joan Hart is on the guest list, and being a huge Kevin Smith fan, I'm geeking out over Brian O'Halloran (Dante from cult film Clerks). Jason Momoa (Stargate Atlantis, Game of Thrones) is also a guest, but I believe he will no longer be able to attend the Perth event. You can also meet your favourite artist, writer and cosplayer as they have guests from those genres, too. Some of those include fantasy author Isobelle Carmody and comic book illustrator Stewart McKenny.




EVENT DETAILS
PERTH: March 25-26 (Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre)
ADELAIDE: April 1-2 (Adelaide Showgrounds)
MELBOURNE: July 1-2 (Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre)
BRISBANE: September 23-24 (Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre)
SYDNEY: September 30/October 1 (International Convention Centre Sydney)

Guys, if you've never experienced Oz Comic-Con before, I can tell you, it's such a fun, colourful and exciting convention! We've taken our son a few times and he loved trying to guess which characters the cosplayers were dressed up as! We are Trekkies and massive sci-fi fans, and hubby is a hardcore Whovian (aka Doctor Who freak, lol), but even if that's not your cup of tea, there are so many other movies and TV shows you'll find there to explore. There are celebrity talks to attend, meets and greets and autograph packages you can buy and merchandise stalls to peruse. There will be an Anime Station featuring a Manga Library, a Gaming Zone and a Family Activity Room to keep the kids busy! It really is a hugely entertaining event, so if you'd like to enter for a Family Weekend Pass in your city, here's how!

  7. My husband is from a family of comic people. His brother recently sold his comic shop of 25+ years. They would always do the Comic Conventions as stall holders. My husband runs a side business selling comics on EBay. It's comic central at our house. However, I have NEVER been to a comic con. Can you believe that?

  40. That's awesome! I used to go to all of the conventions. Armageddon, Comic Con and Supanova were the ones in Melbourne, though I also went to a Whoniverse event as well as a couple of Supernatural cons. As I get older I realise that they cost too much money and now I don't go unless it's to complete the autographs on the Hobbit book I have. I've gone too far to stop now!
