Human Statue Bodyart Human Entertainment Supanova Superheroes Bodypainting Sydney

Superhero fans out there... as you would know its almost time for Sydney, Australia to get their annual dose of Supanova - Superhero and pop culture mania again.

Superheroes remain a popular theme at the famous expo that tours most capital cities of Australia, including Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and the Gold Coast.

Fanboys and fangirls have been dressing up as their favourite characters for as long as we can remember, and this year the competition must be heating up between the boys and the girls, as creative arts and bodypainting / bodyart agency, Human Statue Bodyart, has been having its phone ringing off the hook with enquires from folks who will be attending the Sydney leg of the expo.

Ms Rinaldi said "We've known how popular superhero themes have been at both the expo, as well as in general for many years, but this year has been crazy. The phone has been ringing hot with enquiries from guys and girls who are interested in us helping them create the best superhero characters possible. So far it looks like The Hulk, Spider-Man and The Punisher will be the most popular with the boys, and Wonder-Woman and X-Men's Mystique with the girls. Avatar is popular with men and women. It's going to be very busy on the opening days so we have employed additional artists for the day. We are advising customers to book in early to avoid disappointment. We also advise people to buy their props to compliment their costumes, so that they get the best possible effect for the lowest possible price. When we've finished the superhero bodyart and makeup jobs we're going to fly over to Supanova Sydney to be part of all the fun in person".

Human Statue Bodyart has its Sydney art studio located in the Inner West region, so its only about 30 minutes from the expo, but allow extra time for traffic (and for the paint to dry)!

Marvel Comics / Marvel Entertainment superheroes appear to be a bit more popular than the DC Comics / Warner Bros. characters, but that situation may change. Neither Marvel or DC / Warner Bros. are official sponsors or advertisers at the popular pop culture expo, but that doesn't seem to have effected the exposure they receive.

Take time to dress your best, as we understand lots of news media will be attending with photographers and video cameras, so if you look great there's a decent chance you will make the news in some fashion!
