Outfit and Event – Supanova Melbourne

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?

Concert/Event/Review – Adam Brand

Now wait a minute, I know, I know, you’re probably thinking “wait, what? Adam Brand?”. In fact, I had a friend who asked what I was up to and replied “and you think you know a person” when I explained I went to an Adam Brand concert. Here is the thing, I LOVE music. I’m one of those people who wish they were musical, but suck at it, so they immerse themselves into just listening and loving music. And let’s just say, my music taste is varied. Very varied. So when my friend Mallory mentioned going to a gig down the road from me, I was set to go, if only just to catch up with her. I’m happy to say, I had a fantastic time.

In all honesty, I didn’t know much about Adam Brand. My main knowledge was from a long time ago, in a suburb far far away (well Parramatta is pretty far from where I live now). Back then I often tagged along with friends to Speedway, where ‘Dirt Track Cowboy‘ was constantly played.

Event/Concert/Review - Gemma Louise Kirby

The show opened Matt Cornell & Gemma Kirby. I now have a full-fledged lady crush on Gemma Kirby. Once I have some spare $$$ after paying off these vet bills, I’ll be buying her album. She did a cover of 4 Non Blondes ‘Whats Up’ and KILLED it (in a good way!).

From what I could figure out Adam did a mix of old and new songs, and while I enjoyed the older songs, the new songs were AMAZING! Much more commercial and less country, but still with a bit of country taste. His newest song “Get on your feet“, which is also the name of the album and tour, certainly made you, well, get on you feet. In fact, I’m pretty proud I spent the whole concert on my feet, in heels, for the first time since I broke my foot!

The whole vibe of the concert was great, Adam has a bubbly, charismatic personality that he shows off on stage and interacts well with the audience. Not only did he pose for some selfies whilst mid-song, but even borrowed a phone to take some special on stage photos. He brought some chocolates out from backstage to share around, had some drinks delivered to some lovely elderly ladies sitting at the front and even played the drums. He had fun, which made the whole show so much more entertaining.

If you can, I’d highly recommend you check out one of the upcoming shows. I’m considering checking out a 2nd show, this coming Friday in Mornington, but all dates can be found HERE.

What is the favourite concert you’ve ever been to?
