I have always wondered why people spend so much time and effort and money to dress up as their favourite movie or game characters. I've seen people spending months on their fantasy outfits and thought WHY? So yesterday I decided to go to my first Comic-Con held in Motorpoint Arena Cardiff to understand the phenomena. I went with a sceptical view but came back a believer, to say the least.
Some people admit they got involved in dressing up out of a love of costume design. However, others confessed to taking part for some attention for themselves. The idea that I can not only be Batman for a day but also act and feel like him in the real world (apart from driving Bat Mobile of course), and everyone around me would treat me such is a very satisfying experience.
I met some really amazing people who were from all walks of life and came together for the love of cosplay. As so many like-minded gathers in the same venue, it's very common that they find love for each other through such events.
All and all, I loved the atmosphere, the vibe and the positive energy at the venue and in the town centre. I would highly recommend to anyone wondering, to go there at least once and see for yourself.

Here are some Photographs I took outside Motorpoint Arena Cardiff.
