One of my main non-music hobbies is cosplay, and every year my friends and I hit up Nerdvana (AKA Carmarthen Comic Con) in full costume to get involved in some fun geekery! This was the 3rd year of Nerdvana, and as usual we had a lovely time.
I cosplayed as Daredevil (Netflix series version), which turned out so well! I’ll write a detailed post about the cosplay in the future.

Daf was John Constantine:
What a cutie!
Kirsty was Cosima Niehaus dressed as Alison Hendrix (Orphan Black):
I was awarded a “highly commended” accolade in the cosplay competition, which was quite the achievement next to the other excellent cosplayers on display. The other winners were the Rocket Raccoon, Spider-Man, and War Doctor (Doctor Who):
Some of my other favourite cosplays seen throughout the day included:
- Tate Langdon
- A toddler as 11th Doctor
- A little girl as Iron Man, paired with light-up Batman shoes
- A little boy dressed as the Joker, covered in purple glitter
The event was much quieter and there seemed to be less going on than in previous years, which was a shame – I also felt it didn’t have quite the same friendly community feel as the last two years. Nonetheless, it was a fun event which we look forward to visiting next year.
