Fun Day Out At The Smallville Comics Cosplay Competition

Smallville Comics hosted their inaugural Smallville Comics Cosplay Competition on the 8th of August 2015 at their flagship store in New Redruth, Alberton, Gauteng and it was such a rad day!! I mean, if you’re a geek, you don’t get any better than a day devoted to Cosplay, comics and entertainment, right? It was an early start to the day with the judging that started at 09:00, and the main stage event rounding the day off in the afternoon. Smallville also hosted a flea market where retailers like Custom Vinyls, Misfit Munchies and Plushy Heaven got to put their merchandise on display and for sale.

I’m proudly Geek and have a passion for all things pop-culture. Huge fan of The Walking Dead. Lover of gadgets and technology and although I’m not a gamer (sadly no hand-eye co-ordination) I find myself drawn to the gaming culture and community and how it connects with one of my biggest passions – collecting action figures and statues. I love to watch movies and series and there’s nothing better than having conversations with other people about the things I feel so passionately about. Being an 80’s child I am a huge fan of retro stuff and my Thundercats collection is one of my most prized possessions. That, and my A-Team van. Follow me on Twitter @LindaAtGES
