Many visitors dressed up for the occasion as they met special guests including actors franchises such as Star Wars, Batman, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and Doctor Who.

The event, at Magna, was the seventh of its kind but the first to be held at the Rotherham attraction.

Donna Shaw, marketing coordinator at Magna, said: “Cosplay Con is a family friendly event and has been a huge success at other Yorkshire venues in the past, so it was great to bring it to Magna this year.

“It was great to have special guests who played small parts in big franchise films coming to Magna and joining in on the fun with their many fans.”
