60 Iconic Weapons from Fiction

When we think of our favorite fictional characters, we often associate them with an item, or talisman, that is every bit as iconic as the characters themselves. In many cases, this item is a weapon. Weapons come in many forms; there are guns, swords, and everything in between. They can be as amazing as Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber or as unique as the Fat Man from the Fallout video game franchise.

Preston Comic-Con 2015

Welcome to the Killer Kitsch Preston Comic-Con 2015 blog from Saturday 1st August 2015. I rolled up at lunchtime and still found a sizeable queue for the second Comic-Con held at the Guild Hall in Preston. Stalls-a-plenty, guests & talks, a prop display area, cosplay, artists alley, writers, crafter’s and cakes. Spent a few hours wandering, chatting, taking photos/video and generally making a nuisance of myself.

Full image gallery including more cosplay, stalls and merchandise via my Flickr album and YouTube video.
