On Sunday, Revenge of the Film Nerds had a blast at the second birthday of our favourite store. There was a TARDIS, Storm Troopers, Umbrella Corp, and Neo even popped in for a visit!! Lots of new and old customers attended the festivities, and many a photo was snapped. It was an awesome day, and here is looking forward to next year’s celebrations. The event was over all too quickly!!
Ever since Sydnova 2011, ROTFN has been following a fellow con attendant on YouTube, The Cyber Siren (see links at the end of the post). Earlier this week she advertised the event being reported in this post, so Bride of Film Nerd and I decided to head over to Blacktown for ourselves and check out the store. Unfortunately for us, we discovered a store in which we would happily depart with many of our hard-earned dollars in.
All weekend, there is a stocktake sale so you can get many exciting goodies for cheap. For ourselves we picked up Mario themed candies (3 for $10!!), a Doctor Who coffee mug (The TARDIS moves to the other side of the mug when hot), and a Pacman Ice tray, for Pac and ghost shaped ice-cubes.
We also observed some cosplay on offer during the event today, but that I think really take off more tomorrow, Sunday, July 31st, as from 12-2pm the store is holding a cosplay competition, the winning male and female both getting a $100 Gametraders voucher. Yes, I will be dusting off one of my costumes tomorrow. One of today’s cosplayers was the previously mentioned Cyber Siren, whom was rocking a very cool female Duke Nukem costume.
So if you are into games, or just interested in picking up some geek memorabilia, check out Gamestraders tomorrow. You can find more details on the Gametraders Blacktown Facebook page. Just please don’t too many of you come in cosplay….. I want that voucher!!
