I would really pity you if you missed out on the most colorful and whacky convention in Dubai. The one place where dressing up weird is ‘in’ and being normal is as good as non-existent. Today’s your last chance to attend and witness the first Middle East Film and Comic Con so rampage your closet, hunt for that weird tee you would never want to be caught dead with and parade around Dubai International Marine Club.
As for my fellow cosplay enthusiasts, here are some of the displays from Day 1 of Comic con (original photos by Vivin Oommen) More photos coming up!
Were you there? What did you think of the first comic con in the Middle East?
Omagawd omagawd omagawd omagawd! Did I just read this right? Comic-con is coming to Dubai?! The middle east?! This cannot be true! An ardent fan of japanese manga and anime and a proud sister of DC and Marvel comics’ fan, my excitement escalated after confirmed news of the Middle East Film and Comic Convention happening in Dubai.
My fascination has been limited to watching the most-exciting-convention-for-graphic-art-readers, via TV, youtube or just browsing through images of various costly models (costume play). But the opportunity to participate and witness it live is simply unbelievable! And if nothing could be more extraordinary than to have a comic-con right here in the city of life, Jason Momoa (of Game of Thrones fame), Laurie Holden (Walking Dead), Chad Michael Murray (from One Tree Hill), John Rhys Davies aka Gimli from Lord of the Rings and many more celebrities will be parading in town for the MEFCC between April 20-21, 2012. I don’t know about you, but I’mma be on my best behavior to witness the event I’ve waited for years.
