So this year was a new venue well a return to the old venue. It was held at Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre instead of the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton. There was lots more room to fit everyone and not feel so much like a sardine. However inside it was HOT, real hot. They needed to either open up some doors or ventilate it better. The lines for autographs and photo’s with the stars seemed to move pretty well. There wasn’t too many hiccups. The addition to the family / kids zone was awesome. They did a great job giving the little ones a space they can shill out for a while to allow parents of little ones a bit easier time of it. A great weekend had by all and a must see in the future years. Although by the end for my 2 little ones it was somewhat a long weekend they still enjoyed themselves as much as mum and dad. as per usual there was an enormous amount of diversity in people and costumes. For us the highlight was meeting the stars and having that all allusive photo and autograph with them.
