Comic Con Melbourne 2013

July 8, 2013

When I bought tickets to Melbourne Comic Con, I thought it would just be a fun day out nerding it up and admiring all the people cosplaying. Little did I know I'd actually get to see three of the actors from arguably my favourite TV show ever, Charmed. The first panel I saw was that of Shannen Doherty (Prue) who was lovely and spoke about her past characters and how they relate to her personally. She also spoke about an up and coming new TV show that she stars in that's hoping to be picked up by the networks soon.
The second panel I saw was Holly Marie Combs (Piper) and Brian Krause (Leo) who were absolutely adorable to watch, just like an old married couple. They were obviously still friends and the history between them really came out as they were chatting. They have both got to be some of the nicest and most genuine people in Hollywood. After my Charmed fantasy was fulfilled, I headed back inside to meet my friend and have a shop.
Comic Con had everything from girly Harajuku items, classic comic books, Disney, video game paraphernalia, costumes and make up, Adventure Time (!!) and much much more. I consider myself to be a bit of a geek, but definitely in a more girly way. I loved seeing all the Studio Ghibli characters, Harajuku girls and the one guy I saw dressed as The Hitcher from The Mighty Boosh (another one of my fav TV show). 
I definitely have a lot of respect for all the people who put so much effort into their costumes. I think if I go next year I might dress up. Depends how cold it is haha.
