Glasgow MCM Comic Con 2017


Recently I attended Glasgow MCM Comic Con with my Friend Iain. But I bet you are wondering ‘what is Comic-Con?’

Comic Convention, known as Comic-Con, is a convention held every year at the SEC centre where people come from all over to see comic writers, celebrities from cartoons or anime, or to see what people are dressed up as. This is held every September for 2 days Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday I cosplayed (dressed up) as my own character & Iain dressed up as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones. When I was in the priority queue for priority I noticed a lot of people cosplaying as their favourite characters.  I met my friend Iain inside and we walked around looking at different stalls and different cosplayers.

While there we noticed celebrities such as Manu Bennett from Arrow, Peter Davidson from Doctor Who, Sam J. Jones from Flash Gordon, Walter Jones, David Yost and Karan Ashley from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, Troy Baker from Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite.

Later in the day, my friend Iain joined a masquerade which is a type of show where people perform.  He also did it last year where he performed with music and showed his cosplay.

On Sunday I was in normal clothes with my camera and took photos of different characters from Star Wars, The Planet of the Apes, video games and even Stephen King’s characters. I also saw 2 CK Pose members David and Hughie.

I hope everyone enjoyed the convention as much as I did and I can not wait for next year.
