Supanova Expo is hitting Perth at the end of next month and I’m starting to get really excited about it, I attended last year with some friends and had a great few hours walking around seeing the stalls, hitting up some panels Jake Lloyds (Anakin, Starwars Ep1) which was quite hilarious and basically checking out everything pop culturally I could find.
As this years is coming up I just wanted to post something about whos attending and just what I enjoy about it, I know some people have never heard of Supanova and with the impressive lineup I thought I should let every know. Now obviously people relate supanova to everything nerd/geek/alternative etc but its really not, anyone whos a fan of Movies/TV/Comics/Writing/Collecting should attend over the weekend event
Now I’m not going to list everyone whos attending you can check out the supanova website for that but Ill list the notables.
Eliza Dushku – DollHouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tru Calling
Tahmoh Penikett – Dollhouse, Battlestar Galactica
Charisma Carpenter – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed
Lou Ferrigno – Pumping Iron, Incredible Hulk (TV), Hulk (Film), I Love you Man
Michael Winslow – Police Academy, Spaceballs, Gremlins
Other TV/Film guests are Chaske Spencer (New Moon, Eclipse), Allan Hyde (True Blood, 2900 Happiness), Jodelle Ferland (Eclipse, Silent Hill, Stargate), Daniel Logan (Star Wars:Attack of the Clones). There is also an abundence of Animators, Voice Actors, Illustrators and Authors you can check out the entire list here at Supanova Guests.
Now if you are a fan of like Dollhouse or True Blood/Twilight there are actually packages you can get which like give you a Autograph and photo with the guest etc. These are quite good eventhough they may seem a bit pricey the autographs and photos (you with the guest) individually usually cost between like $40-$50 each so I personally think they are really good value. You don’t need to get one of the packages to attend, just a normal day pass is $39.50.
