Thanks to Oz Comic-Con we have a weekend family pass up for grabs for this year’s event. Valued at $150 and valid for any show -Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney!
Oz Comic-Con is coming to town and it’s almost like Christmas in our house. While I only popped my Oz Comic-Con cherry last year, my girls have been unleashing their inner geek on an annual basis for several years.
Like most die-hard fans, my girls start planning their next costume before they’ve even taken off their costume from the last event. This year they have the added element of freaking out over what my costume may or may not look like. I may be guilty of having a truck TARDIS load of fun with that right now. Secretly though, I wouldn’t mind finding myself an invisibility cloak and flying under the radar this year.
I had so much fun last year, attending talks, workshops and catching up with some of the leading Cosplay players. It was a real eye opener. I honestly had no idea how much effort goes into their costumes and how much I would enjoy the event.
OZ COMIC-CON 2017
This year Oz Comic-Con kicks off in Perth on March 25. With family activities, celebrity meet and greets, merchandise stands, workshops, Cosplay awards and much more, it’s such a great day out for the entire family, no matter where you sit on the geek scale.
I’ve had a quick peek at celebrity line-up and pleased to see a bit of Doctor Who action this year. Arthur Darville, one of the Doctor’s most loyal companions is commandeering the TARDIS for a trip to Perth (March 25-26) as well as Adelaide (April 1-2). Arthur joins an all-star line-up for Oz Comic-Con 2017 and I’m not sure who I’m most excited to be casing and hanging out with this year. I can definitely see myself making a weekend of it.
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
Following years of leaving my three girls and their dad to their own geeky devices, I feel like I’m winning in the geeky mothering stakes, now that I’m finally embracing my inner geek and joining them (at a safe distance) with their Oz Comic-Con adventures again this year.
Thanks to Oz Comic-Con you can feel like a winner too, with a weekend family pass (2 adults & 2 children) up for grabs.
As the Perth event is just around the corner, time is of the non Time Lord variety, so there is a quick turnaround for this giveaway BUT the pass isn’t Perth exclusive and can also be used for any of the five Oz Comic-Con shows for 2016 – Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney.

** We were gifted tickets for this giveaway and for the Perth show ** As always, gifted tickets have no bearing on my ability to tell it like it is or how over-the-top I may or may not go with my costume and event antics this year.
