Well, it’s time to start planning my costume for Supanova ’09! Supanova Pop Culture Expo is the funnest festival to hit Brisbane. Check it out here: www.supanova.com.au . Me & my Brisbane Sci-Fi crew go every year. Each year the costumes get more and more elaborate. It’s one of the few times of year where it’s considered not unusual to run around Brisbane dressed like a stormtrooper or a wacky anime critter. Sure, people still look at you weird, but they’re boring so who cares about them, right? ;p

It’s also a mad-fun excuse to hang out with famous celebrities from your favourite movies, tv-shows, games and comic books, and score their autograph or even get a photo with them. I myself have space-fairied it up with folks as cool as:

  • John Schneider (The original Bo Duke, and Clark Kent’s dad in the TV series Smallville)
  • Summer Glau (River from the series “Firefly” and the movie “Serenity“, also played Tess in “4400“)
  • Aaron Douglas (“Battlestar Galactica“)
  • Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back)
  • Ron Glass (“Firefly” & “Serenity“)
  • Karl Urban ***SCORE!!!*** (“Lord of the Rings“, “Xena”, and he plays Bones McCoy in the new Star Trek movie! He’s so preetty. He totally loves me)
  • Teryl Rothery (The doctor in “Stargate: SG1“)
  • Jewel Staite (Kaylee the lovestruck engineer in “Firefly“, “Serenity“, and also “Stargate Atlantis
  • James Kyson Lee (“Heroes“)
  • Lou Ferrigno (The original “Incredible Hulk“)

…and those are only the folks I met at Brisbane Supanova! (My collection from my earlier Sydney escapades is also quite large and impressively awesome)
