I was blown away when I found out I had an opportunity to perform at Supanova in Adelaide and Brisbane- Supanova was the first ever comic convention that I attended and now I was going to be a part of the festivities!

Arriving early was it’s own adventure. Setting up the table was a creative hurricane- somewhat akin to setting up a place prior to a party. Doing the sound-check on stage was also pretty fun, dressed in my fashionable safety vest, hearing my voice booming through the empty hall.

I was absolutely thrilled when I found out that not only did I have a slot performing in the opening ceremony and sitting at a table for the rest of the show… I was posted about on the Supanova Facebook page and appeared in the Supanova program twice!!

The absolute highlight, as you’d expect, was performing. There’s nothing like the buzz of singing my crazy songs to a room full of people that really get it 😛

Thank you to all the incredible people that stopped by and chatted with me at both of the events. I knew very few people at both events at the start and was spending time after both cons hanging out with new friends after only a few days.
