Trading in the fluffy pink slippers for some #BlackWidow boots for a Ballan Autumn Festival superhero costume.

Definitely the most fun part of Ballan Autumn Festival preparations is putting our own cosplay together. A visit to @rosechonghire in Melbourne is a visit to one of the most magic and fantastical caverns of the earth. #ballanautumnfestival #baf2020 #ballan #ballanautumnfestival20 #ballanautumn2020 #autumn #autumnfestival #victoria #ballanvictoria #victorian #victorians #BAF #BAF! #visitvictoria #victoriaaustralia #moorabool #mooraboolshire #ballarat #ballaratlife #ballaratlifestyle #ballaratfood #visitballarat #ballanAF2020 #baffettes #cosplayer #cosplayers #cosplaying ...

With less than a month to go before the Ballan Autumn Festival, we’re organising our superhero costumes and suiting up for the event. You can understand why #cosplay becomes an obsession for its adherents - getting the boots right, the belt the right shape, the precise colour of the leggings... and what about the makeup? WHAT ABOUT THE MAKEUP, PEOPLE?!! . . . #ballanautumnfestival #baf2020 #ballan #ballanautumnfestival20 #ballanautumn2020 #autumn #autumnfestival #victoria #ballanvictoria #victorian #victorians #BAF #BAF! #visitvictoria #victoriaaustralia #moorabool #mooraboolshire #ballarat #ballaratlife #ballaratlifestyle #ballaratfood #visitballarat #ballanAF2020 #baffettes #cosplayer #cosplayers #cosplaying ...
