After visiting the Swedish capital last November, the SciFiWorld convention moves west to Gothenburg in February, luring visitors into a real life fantasy with an impressive army of heroes and villains.
The two-day convention will cater to Sci-Fi fans of all ages, with displays that cover everything from comic books to nostalgic video games – and of course, Sci-Fi movies.
The show gives you a chance to meet plenty of iconic Sci-Fi characters, along with some of the actors and actresses behind them. You might just bump into guys like R2-D2, Chewbacca and Darth Vader as you wander around. There’s also the chance to admire some amazing make-up art and costumes up close – or even try your luck for the ‘best costume’ prizes yourself.
Visit the Gothenburg event and you’ll be able to browse a whole bunch of shops selling everything from figurines to jewellery, plusmovie posters and costumes. If you’re a true die-hard fan, why not get a tattoo of your favourite character? Kids can try their hands at the free lightsaber training courses. Look out for the full program on the event’s official website.
