Supanova Cosplay Parade
This Sunday the 21st of April, Broadbeach will be hosting the Inaugural Supanova Cosplay Parade!
Broadbeach Alliance and Supanova are excited to announce that the inaugural Guest of Honour for the first-ever Supanova Cosplay Parade (9.15am Sunday, 21st April) is Supa-Star sensation, David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff!
And what better personality to do so than the 'Knight Rider' in a replica of KITT from the classic TV series that launched him to fame, a fame that exploded worldwide on beaches beautiful and sun-swept just like the Gold Coast on Baywatch.
Hasselhoff will be led by fan club the 501st Legion, the official costuming guild of the Star Wars franchise renowned for their appearances at charity events and joined by a bevy of superheroines, superheroes, aliens, cartoon characters, robots, and assorted pop-culture characters in celebrating their passion for costuming and genre productions in Saturday’s parade. Expect fellow stars from the Supanova Expo and Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF) such as the stars of Sushi Girl, All Superheroes Must Die, and more.
There will also be a DJ in the mall playing themed songs to complement the parade.
Commencing in Pratten Park (Old Burleigh Road) at Broadbeach and proceeding through Broadbeach Mall and across the Gold Coast Highway to the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, the parade showcases Supanova’s cosplayers.
Cosplay is an abbreviation of costume role-play, a kind of “dress up” in which participants dress as a character from the world of popular or geek culture, and can also perform a skit as part of Supanova’s cosplay competition, supported by film distributors Madman.
The Supanova Cosplay Parade is a joint initiative for QPOW! (Queensland Pop Culture Week) with the Broadbeach Alliance and the Gold Coast Film Festival (GCFF) supporting the Supanova Expo in conducting the parade.
Please be advised that anyone wishing to view this parade should do so from the Broadbeach Mall.
