Thou­sands of fans flock to NEC as event re­turns

Solihull News - - FAITH MATTERS -

COS­TUMES were the or­der of the day as thou­sands of fans flocked the MCM Comic Con.

And they cer­tainly went to town with their out­fits at the event at The NEC over the week­end.

On the open­ing day, peo­ple went dressed as ev­ery­thing from Silent Hill nurses to Cap­tain Jack Spar­rows.

Bran­dish­ing light sabres, there were plenty of Star Wars jedis and stormtroop­ers to­gether with a few Darth Mauls and Che­bac­cas thrown in for good mea­sure.

There was a Hob­bit, a Joker, Har­lequin and Cap­tain Amer­ica too.

Some even went as clas­sic fam­ily movie and TV icons such as Elmo from Se­same Street and Mary Pop­pins and Bert the chim­ney sweep.

Stars at this event in­cluded Ja­son O’Mara from Mar­vel Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D, Mary McDon­nell from Bat­tlestar Gala, David Mor­ris­sey from The Walk­ing Dead and Roger Ash­ton Grif­fiths from Game of Thrones.

But it was not cheap to meet them as an au­to­graph could set you back up to £ 50 and a photo ses­sion up to £ 60.
