Wyntercon multi-genre convention
Wyntercon is a family friendly Cosplay & Comic Con based in Eastbourne, East Sussex.
For those new to events like Wyntercon Cosplay is abbreviated from Costume Play, so and event where you (optionally, but highly recommended) dress up as someone or something else, most commonly a character from TV, films, computer games or comic books, which gives you a chance to have lots of fun. There are very few limits (must be family friendly and probably not a good idea to wear something too offensive!) so let your imagination run wild. You DON'T have to look the character, you can just be inspired by one, you don't need to be the same size, colour or even gender (that's known as crossplay) as who you want to be.
Every year in Eastbourne they have a great event called Wyntercon, these were from the third one, held on the 1st and 2nd of October 2016 at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne. Wyntercon had special guests (Including Solphie Aldred / Ace from Doctor Who), stalls selling all kinds of things, workshops, cosplay area, gaming, photo booth (with the Time Machine and the TARDIS!), competitions, activities, RPG's and so much more. It's a great event for getting your geek on and meeting like minded people, hanging out in weird and wonderful costumes (optional, but definitely encouraged!).
Wyntercon is an amazing Comic Con style event held each year at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne, East Sussex, it attracts guests from all over the country. Most people dressed up for Wyntercon, I went as a slightly punky version of Mad Eye Moody from Harry Potter, but people wore all kinds of things from Steampunk to cartoon character costumes. I got to meet Norman Lovett, best known as Holly from Red Dwarf, he was very nice and even shared his birthday cake! There were many others there from TV, Films, Artists etc. Wyntercon was a great event to photograph and to be part of and I can't wait until the 2016 one!!!
