The force was strong at the SSE Arena this weekend as thousands flocked to the annual Belfast Film and Comic Con.

Many were drawn to the dark side as Darth Vader star David Prowse lead the stars who turned out for the annual fantasy and sci-fi convention.

Other film notables at the SSE Arena included Carl Weathers, known for his role as Apollo Creed in the Rocky films and sci-fi classic Predator.

However, the fans were equally the stars of the show as many spare no expense to recreate the outfits of their favourite film, TV and comic book characters.

The two day event saw thousands of Trekkies, Whovians, Marvel and DC followers flood the SSE Arena on Saturday and Sunday.

Our photographs capture some of their stunning cos-play efforts as they journeyed from the four corners of the province for the event.
