Film and Comic Con Cardiff 2018

Film and Comic Con returned to Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena this weekend for a celebration of all things fandom.

Spread across three different zones, Gaming, Cosplay and Tabletop, there were a sea of stalls to choose from, crammed with enough activities and merchandise to leave even the most ardent fan satisfied.

There were special guests from TV and film available to chat, sign autographs and take selfies with, including Paul Kaye, who recently played Thoros in Game of Thrones, and Robert Llewellyn, perhaps best-known for playing Kryten in Red Dwarf. Another Games of Thrones star, Vladimir Furdik, was also there, virtually unrecognisable from his role as the Night King. Luckily, he is far nicer than his on-screen character.

And of course, there were costumes galore. Characters from everything including Star Wars, Game of Thrones, anime, Marvel and DC were represented. Special mentions have to go a Chewbacca that was so life-like we expected Han Solo to turn up at any minute, and a double whammy of brilliantly realistic Alien and Predator costumes that had us hiding behind the nearest stalls.
