A friend just passed me a flyer to Supanova, a “pop culture” expo that is on this weekend.
At first I thought, what the &#$@ is “pop culture”? Ths Supanova expo seems to encompass movie stars, sci-fi, comic books, anime and cartoons, computer gaming, LAN party, card gaming and more.
One interesting thing that the kids (and I) might find entertaining is cosplay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosplay). This is the sub culture where people dress up as characters (usually anime/manga/computer game characters) and re-enact scenes or pretend to be that character. Apparently there is a cosplay competition as part of supanova! Might be good photography subject material.
With children under 12 are free with a $25 adult ticket at the door, it sounds like a good way to start the Perth school holidays
