Wales Comic Con – Sunday 29th November 2015
Glyndwr University, Wrexham
Back in April, my family and I attended the first Wales Comic Con of the year, held at Glyndwr University in Wrexham. However just one day was not enough – November saw a second event in a similar vein.
So that meant star guests signing, merch for sale and dozens of cosplayers – all gathered together for a fun day. Whatever you’re fan of, from the realms of film, television or comic books; be it sci-fi, fantasy, or other genre – there was something there for everyone.
At the previous event, we were lucky to have some stunning warm weather. No such luck this time – the rain lashed down and the wind blew mercilessly. Even for November, this weather wasn’t great. No matter though, the atmosphere at the event was still every bit as sunny as previous. Quite surprisingly, everyone’s spirits were high and there was still an air of excitement.
Comic Con was largely about Star Wars for my family, with my daughter Eloise dressed as Princess Leia in classic A New Hope style outfit. She had a fantastic time having photos taken, and running after stormtroopers trying to shoot them (with a blaster from my collection!). Meeting Chewbacca was also a highlight.
The costumes were varied and impressive – though due to the weather, lack of time and a technical fault my photos were limited. Which was a shame as there were many more photos I’d have liked to take.
So another great event at Wrexham, and an excellent afternoon out. We’ll definitely be back for more next time.
