The science-fiction/fantasy/comics/gaming and anime convention Atlanti-Con started today at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland.
The new arts and science extension was filled with conventiongoers, vendors and exhibitors.
A lot of people really got into the event by dressing up in costume. Katherine Neil dressed up as Sherlock Holmes for the day and Amanda Oakley as Merida from Brave.
Visitors to the convention also had the chance to hear from Stargate actor Gary Jones and fantasy art muse Drakaina. Jones will speak again on Sunday and the final day will also include a presentation on writing sci-fi and a costume contest.
