Supanova Sydney 2012 – Preview Night

Tonight was the biggest preview night I have attended for Supanova, with the lines far exceeding anything I have already seen in my experience of the two years previous to this.   I wandered the line, taking some great cosplay shots.   Upon entry, I attended the opening ceremony and a panel with the M aster to Paul McGann’s Doctor… Eric Roberts.   I will comment on these later in this post, but first lets look at the cosplay.   There were some fantastic costumes tonight, and I look forward to viewing many more tomorrow!!
