Photographer Kris Cook went along with his camera to meet storm troopers, wrestlers and other weird and wonderful characters who descended on the town centre this weekend.

Cosplayers came out in force this weekend as the Wintergardens hosted Comic Con World 2023. The family friendly event was hosted in the Olympia Exhibition Hall and included displays of movie memorabilia and props, live acts, a gaming zone and classic cinema screenings.

Highlights included Titan the Strongman who mixed traditional strongman feats with some sideshow acts that were not for the fainthearted. As well as Stranger Things, which has dominated comic cons for the past few years, dedications to the hit Addamโ€™s Family spin off Wednesday were a strong theme of the weekend.But nothing can capture the imaginations of convention goers quite like Star Wars. The force is less awakened, than having never really slept.
