It’s an event for fans of comics, TV shows and everything and anything ‘nerdy.’
The Vancouver Fan Expo is in full force this weekend.
With thousands of people attending panels, shopping for memorabilia, and meeting fellow fans at the Convention Centre.
Andy Everson – who dresses up as a Storm Trooper from the movie ‘Star Wars’ says he’s happy to see people are more curious than negative about him walking around in costume.
“In the past it’s been frowned upon and nowadays, you get to do what you want, express yourself. The Fan Expo is a chance for people to come out and express who they are and express their passions and show everybody else their passions.”
Everson is part of a Storm Trooper battalion band that march and play music in full costume.
They are also fundraising for children’s charity ‘Variety’ during their time at the Expo.
You can catch them and other expo-related fun until Sunday.
