Supanova on the Gold Coast

It feels like it has taken me all week to recover. Last weekend, I attended Supanova Gold Coast - one of the first in the round of conventions for the year and actually one of my first costume events this year. Summer is just too hot and humid in Brisbane to be comfortable costuming. I didn't get to take any photos over the weekend as I had a very unfortunate phone smashing incident where only the bottom right corner is now usable. I'm still waiting on my new phone to be delivered. However, I did actually costume the entire weekend and was lucky enough to have Pandom Images snap some photos for me.

The weather here has started cooling down in the evenings, so I decided I could handle the heat of wearing my Saber Lion cosplay. It's a super comfortable costume and fun to wear, even if there are very few people who know what it is. 

Then, on Saturday, I debuted my new Diablo 3 Monk costume. It's my first time working with armour and if you follow my facebook page, you would have seen some of my progress shots. There were only a few fabric elements to the costume and the rest required my forray into working with foam. I've learnt a lot and will definitely be trying my hand at it again. I based my armour pieces off game screencaps. Basically, I created a new female Monk and every time I got a new piece of armour or weapon, I screencapped it - giving me a huge pool of images to pick and choose my armour from.

And finally, for Sunday, I wore my new Game of Thrones costume - Margaery Tryell in her mourning outfit. I loved my previous Margaery costume and was sad to see it die so it was a no brainer when choosing to make another GOT costume. I decided on her mourning outfit because I just haven't seen it made before by other cosplayers and I loved the look of it. This time though, I took steps to make sure that it would be a lot more durable than my last Margaery but that is all for a later post and tutorial. I was pleased with it though and so happy to find a Joffrey cosplayer for a few photos.


  1. I hope that you will pressent the new outfits in further blog posts, they are way to pretty and detailed for showing them in a con post! You make an amazing Margaery, that's for sure!

    1. Thanks. :) I would love to do a photoshoot with each of them. And I will certainly be doing a Making Of for my Margaery in the not too distant future.

  2. I'm just blown away by how beautiful your Margery dress is! Please have some love from a random passer-by!
