Comic Con Belfast draws record-breaking crowds

By Eoin Laughlin

TV actresses Katrina Law, Hynden Welch and Jessie Wallace took Northern Ireland by storm as they hit town for the second MCM Belfast Comic Con convention.

The expo saw more than 16,000 fans descend on the King's Hall in Belfast over the weekend and organisers say this year's numbers are set to break last year's record.

Actress Hynden, best known as the voice of Princess Bubblegum in cult animation show Adventure Time, joined Katrina, who plays Nyssa al Ghul in hit superhero series The Arrow, to sign autographs and take part in a series of talks.

 Brunette beauty Katrina will be most recognisable as the skilled archer and daughter of infamous League of Assassins leader Ra's al Ghul in the hit fantasy show. Saturday's finale was the Cosplay Masquerade competition, where entrants spend months making and sourcing their costumes.
