Outfit and Event – Supanova Melbourne

May 5, 2017 Event Fashion Outfits

Last Sunday, I headed out to Supanova. For those who have been looong time readers, you’ll know I used to work in the convention industry. My last con was 6 years ago, so it’s been an age since I’ve been to one. Boy have they grown! I was quite stunned at just how huge it’s grown.

Having put a poll on Twitter asking which of two outfits I should wear, and the clear winner was an Ursula/Disney Villians themed outfit. I think it turned out pretty well and I was super comfy. Seeing as I was working on three hours of sleep comfort was a big thing.

Supanova - Welcome to the Wolfpack Panel - Keri Arthur, Patricia Briggs and Maria Lewis

One of the main reasons I headed to Supanova was the Authors! Three of my favourite authors were there and on Sunday they had a panel I really wanted to see. “Welcome to the Wolfpack” was a panel featuring Keri Arthur, Patricia Briggs and Maria Lewis all about their take on Werewolves. The panel was packed with feminism, history and lots of laughs.

Lack of sleep meant eyebags larger than normal. That problem was solved by going all out with glitter! Yep, I was up at 6:30am to do my hair and makeup. I played around with a wrap necklace to create a harness type effect and use that to pin my Ursula brooch on.

My hair has some major regrowth going on and is in desperate need of a dye, so I decided to wear a wig. I braided my hair into the front and covered it with my trusty flower headband. It apparently seemed real enough I had a lady ask what dye I used!

All these photos were taken in the afternoon. I forgot to put setting spray on my make up but luckily it stayed put brilliantly. If I can say so myself! I had a brilliant day and picked up heaps of fun things I can’t wait to share in upcoming posts.

Have you been to a convention before?

    Holy crap! I had no idea that you were wearing a wig! It looks so real.

    I love that you’re wearing two squid earrings in the one ear, like Flotsam and Jetsam. This outfit is incredible, and the perfect “everyday cosplay” for a convention.

    Wow the author talk sounds fantastic. I’ve been writing romance for a few years but am switching genres to urban fantasy because people don’t want to read romance about kickarse women.

    Your make up and hair look amazing! You should definitely dye your hair those colours some time because it really suits you! xx

    Thank you! Yes, I loved the way the colours looked, may have to do that some time!

    It was great! I wanted to go to one on the Saturday, but couldn’t afford to go both days. I love urban fantasy, but I guess genres change over time too. I like kickarse women in romance, but I guess a lot of people like damsels and such as well. Big strong men looking after the women.

    Yes! I was wearing a wig! 😛 And YES! THANK YOU! That was totally my inspiration and I love that you picked up on the earrings! <3 I was kind of inspired by Disney Bounding, not full cosplay, but inspired clothing.

    So great, and thanks for your share! We bought our dress on http://www.millybridal.org. I was really worried about purchasing a prom dress online, but the dress is STUNNING! I will definitely order from MillyBridal again.
