You could be forgiven for thinking the streets of Sheffield have turned into a fancy dress catwalk this weekend.

That's because Film & Comic Con, where fans get to meet some of their favourite stars from the world of TV, film and comics, as well as dressing up as their fictional heroes, is in town.

Hundreds of people have flocked to Sheffield Arena, where the two-day event got underway this morning - many of them sporting some pretty impressive costumes.

From Doctor Who to the Joker, here's a selection of some of the best transformations on display.

Stars at the convention this year, include Anton Lesser, who plays Qyburn in Game of Thrones, Mark Rolston and Jenette Goldstein from Aliens, and the Doctor's former companions Wendy Padbury and Sophie Aldred.

They and many others will be meeting visitors, posing for photos and signing autographs.
