We like to think of ourselves as convention regulars. We've been going to them on and off for the past few years, but this year we decided to visit them all. Kicking off the season was Supanova Sydney - a convention that combines anime, sci-fi and pop culture.
Let's begin with what we didn't like.
- Late event schedule.
- The convention staff had no idea what was going on.
When we got there we had to stand in another line to show our tickets and get a wrist band. Fair enough we thought and were giddy when we got to the front of the line...only to have a wrist band slapped on and be told to go line up again. Apparently we now had to line up to get into the convention. So there we were, standing in the rain with only our wrist bands to protect us. As we waited in this new line numerous Supanova staff told us we were in the wrong line, but we refused to move. Eventually we made it to the front of this line and no one even checked to see if I had that damn wrist band on! It took us forty-five min to get into Supanova.
- Events were poorly organised and not thought through.
Before you think I'm just being a negative Nancy I'll get onto what we loved:
- The cosplayers.
- The exhibitions and artists
