Thousands expected for city’s DeeCon festival

Thousands of people are expected to turn out for one of the country’s largest animation and gaming cosplay conventions, which will take place at Dundee University next month.

Anime characters, Star Wars storm-troopers, super villains and video games stars will flock to DeeCon on Saturday April 7.

The event is organised by animation students at the university’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.

Organisers believe the event will be even bigger than usual after people missed out events such as Rai Con and Dunfermline Comic Con due to the recent bad weather.

Picture shows are Jess Clarkson and Al-Hady Aladin getting in character for DeeCon fun.
