It was like a scene from everyone’s favourite sci-fi movies all edited together, as thousands of people headed for Braehead Shopping Centre at the weekend.
Many were dressed as characters from all kinds of films, TV shows and comics as they wandered in and out of the shops, cafes and restaurants at the mall.
The cosplay fans converged on the shopping centre for the annual Film and Comic Con event being held in Braehead Arena, over two days on Saturday and Sunday, 22nd and 23rd July 2023.
