Attention all nerds! Regional Victoria's biggest pop culture event, NerdMania, is returning to Shepparton on July 28 from 10am-5pm at the Shepparton Showgrounds!
There will be cosplayers, interstate guests, artists, collectors and MORE for you to enjoy! Cosplay royalty is also set to attend this year's event - “Henchwench” and “Scrap Shop Props” will be flying in from Adelaide to attend the event and speak about their costume-making antics, as well as being crowned 2016 Australian Cosplay Champion for Henchwench.
There will be a bunch of other cosplayers at the event, as well as some newbies from Melbourne and Bendigo.
Project Manager at Word and Mouth, Jim Gow said “This is our fourth year, and we are trying to bring something for everyone as we slowly build this event bigger and better each year. Essentially there is going to be something there for collectors, gamers, comic fans, anime fans and much more. The event continues to attract an incredible amount of interest in a very short time,” said Mr Gow.
“We continue to engage young people by putting on a range of events for young people to do in Greater Shepparton. We too often hear that there is nothing to do in the area for young people and we are constantly looking to change that, especially when it comes to putting on new and dynamic events that we haven’t tried before.”
“At just $15 per adult and sliding scale for younger people, or a family ticket for $35, it is cheap in comparison to its bigger brothers and sisters,” he said.
There will be a "Super Hero" zone, a focus on the under 10's and under 5 year olds, making it a family-friendly event all around. There will also be several vendors selling all your must-have pop culture collectibles, as well as five food trucks!
