|My brother, Mr A and John enjoying Cardiff Comic Con|
So I'm sure when people think of Cardiff that a Comicon Convention is not the first thing that springs to mind so we really were not sure what to expect, all we know is next year we are going to throw it out there with some costumes, because at the end of the day why not?

Now the Cardiff Comic and Film convention really is still a fledgling in the world of this sort of events and I am sure that year on year it will grow bigger and stronger but the turn out was pretty amazing with Motorpoint Arena packed on both days. It did't have as many big names at the same events in London but still had some good draws with The Hoff (yes the Hoff!) Brian Blessed, a few Hobbits for good measure, Doc from scrubs - whom I was lucky enough to high-five, Ken Baker (R2D2) and Dave Prowse (Darth Vader) and my favourite Miltos Yerolemou from Game of Thrones (he plays sword-master Syrio) and I was over the moon to meet him, such a nice guy.
