OzComicon Melbourne 2019 was jam-packed with quirky things to do, see, and experience.

Arguably having the highest turnout yet, this massive event which took place on 8-9 June at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre welcomed several beloved guests including Dominic Sherwood (Shadowhunters), Colton Haynes (Arrow), Tricia Helfer (Lucifer), Nicola Scott (Wonder Woman) and Dean Rankine (The Simpsons and Rick and Morty).

Thousands of attendees escaped the dreary Melbourne early winter weather by hanging out with renowned cosplay guests Astrokerrie, Ivy Doomkitty, and Henchwench.

There were loads of other things going on throughout the two-day event, including:

  • A WWE wrestling ring where guests could test their luck in holding a championship title (it was also a prime opportunity to meet WWE superstar, Carmella)
  • Striking a pose and snapping a photo on Foxtel’s Iron Throne (this was the last time anyone in Australia would have a chance to do so!)
  • Challenging friends to a competitive game-off while enjoying some java at Dare Ice Coffee’s gaming station.
  • Celebrating the release of the movie “Crawl” by taking a photo in a rowboat floating perilously among a school of ’gators

As usual, OzComicon Melbourne had something for everyone. From old favourites to new sensations, it was a fantastic event that many visitors plan to experience again by attending the next series of events running from September 21 and 22 in Brisbane, and in Sydney from September 28 to 29, 2019.
