The Em-Con convention opens this Sunday, bringing stars from the world of Sci-Fi and Fantasy to the Capital FM Arena.
The convention will feature celebrities from much-loved films and television shows such as Doctor Who, Star Wars and Star Trek. Visitors are being encouraged to ‘cosplay’, an increasingly popular trend amongst convention goers where the aim is to emulate your favourite fictional characters as closely as possible.
Like last year, event organisers are on the lookout for the best costume and only one can be crowned the winner. Question & Answer panels are scheduled to take place at the event, along with autograph signings, photo opportunities and stage shows. Specialist merchandise stalls will also be present, providing visitors with unique, specially designed items.
Ten thousand people are expected to be at the Capital FM Arena The 2014 Em-Con took place at the Albert Hall . There were big queues and many visitors never made it inside. Organisers are promising “Storm Troopers, Predators and Daleks” on their official website, as well as “something else a little special to tickle your fancy!”
