May DWCV Meeting: Cosplay & Fan Day @ The Hub Docklands
May 12 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
  • Guest Cosplayer Panel – our guest cosplayers this year will be Cat and Nicola. If you were lucky enough to see them at Supanova, their cosplays of Madame Vastra and Jenny were amazing to see, with Madame Vastra’s makeup taking 4 hours to put on alone.
     
  • Robert Lloyd – unfortunately two of our planned guests from Illusionist Productions are no longer able to attend (we hope to have them at a future meeting). However 1/3 of them is still coming along, who is none other than our very own Robert Lloyd. You might have seen him at such places as the Doctor Who FestivalThe Science of Doctor Who, or even his very own comedy production which he has performed around the world – Who, Me. He’s even appeared on the BBC documentary Doctor Who: Earth Conquest. He’s Australia’s most famous Doctor Who fan!
     
  • Beginners Cosplay Panel: The Companions – Cosplay tips and advice for beginners, this time we take a look at how to cosplay some of the Doctor Who companions.

Oz Comic-Con Melbourne @ Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Certre
Jun 9 2018 @ 10:00 am – Jun 9 2019 @ 6:00 pm

Come along and visit the Doctor Who Club of Victoria at this year’s Oz Comic-Con. We will be situated at Booth C5, right next to the 501st/Rebel Legion Star Wars clubs. Unfortunately our friends at Tardis Australia won’t be able to make it this year due to work commitments, so we will have our backup TARDIS. You’ll still be able to get your photo in front of the TARDIS.

Post your TARDIS photos on Social Media using the hashtags #DoctorWhoVic or #DWCVOCC

We’ll have lots of Doctor Who goodies on sale including our ever popular fezes, Sonic Screwdrivers and fob watches. We’ll also have artwork from Y. Martin Painting and Design, and jewelry/accessories from Out of Place Fandom.

We will also be hosting a panel called ‘Lucky 13: The New Era of Doctor Who‘ at 5:00 pm on Sunday on the Community Stage. So don’t leave the con early, come along for a look at the upcoming Doctor Who series with Jodie Whittaker. We’ll have panelists on both sides of the female Doctor debate, along with your chance to give your own opinion. You might even win a small prize!
