Share

From far and wide, members of different galactic alliances, kingdoms, realms and worlds came together in peace to celebrate Langford’s inaugural Island FanCon on April 13th and 14th!

Attendees and curious passerby were hailed by the array of incredible cosplay costumes lining up in front of the building to enter the world of FanCon.

Once inside, guests were treated to a number of celebrity special guests, panel conversations, endless amounts of merch that stretch the imagination and much more.

Vendors offered more than just merch—in fact, Kreative Ink had a tattoo booth set up, indulged by none other than ‘The Mountain’ Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson and his wife, Kelsey Henson. It was a great way to pass the time while Björnsson did photo-ops!

Additionally, there was a red carpet set up for anyone wanting to strut their stuff for the cameras. It was open to all ages and included scheduled timeslots so everyone would get the chance to walk.

Without further ado, we’ve compiled a list of 22 captures from this weekend’s inaugural Island FanCon in Langford—let’s start with the celebrities that were present!
