The heart of the convention is the market, featuring around a hundred tables of comics, collectables and bargains, toys, cards, pop culture jewelry, pops, fashion, and much more.
The Bendigo Cosplay Contest is a popular attraction, with keen cosplayers parading amazing costumes and always promises to be a colourful and spectacular event. The Bendigo Cosplay Contest and Bendi-Con 2019 are proud fundraisers for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation.
The Artists Alley is a key feature of Bendi-Con, and the 2019 Artists Alley is huge, with local, Melbourne and Interstate guests showcasing their original comic and artistic creations. Get up close and personal with emerging artists, as well as Australian talent working and being published abroad at the highest professional levels. Keep watching the Facebook page for new guest announcements.
We will be hosting 3 workshops, run by Chris Kennett, Cristain Roux and Ellen Naismith. Bookings for the workshops are essential with limited places.
The Fan-groups will be out in force again this year. Current confirmations fan groups for Doctor Who, Star Wars, Firefly, Discworld, Lego, a Games zone and more.
Bendicon will be hosting panels onstage about Comic Book History, Cosplay, world building and a special presentation about a special movie.
We hope to see you there!
