Katherine Neil, left, and Amanda Oakley listen intently as Drakaina shares her thoughts on cosplaying at Atlanti-Con.

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.

    Great news! I wish I could attend. I can think of no reason why Corner Brook can't be a major center in gaming and animation - experiencing the same kind of growth as in Halifax and Prince Edwards Island. Its winter weather shouldn't be a problem, because of the nature of the industry - which is based on computers and online collaboration. In fact, the terrific locale ought to invite talents from all over Canada and the world. In fact, its already happening, as is evident from this conference. Plus there are lots of talented artists in Newfoundland, who ought to benefit from this growth. Kudos to the organizers - may Corner Brook shine evermore !
