Characters from comics and stars of television series and the big screen made some strange alliances when they gathered for a convention in Skegness.
The stars mingled with the public who couldn’t believe their eyes when they spotted a dalek or Stormtrooper along the seafront.
They had gathered on Sunday for Em-Con Skegness at the Embassy Centre, which has become a favourite fixture in the resort’s calendar.
Fans got the chance to get autographs and photos with their favourite stars while ‘cosplayers’ delighted in dressing up as their favourite characters.
The family friendly convention celebrated all the best in pop culture and visitors jumped at the chance to get up close and personal to their Super Heroes.
Among the stars were Chris Barrie of the popular TV show Red Dwarf, East Enders’ John Altman, Hannaj Spearritt of Primeval and Dan Starkey of Dr Who. Some members of the public couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
