F.A.C.T.S 2011

Finally I’m back after walking around with a broken finger for 3 weeks. Unable to do anything useful. Sorry for that you guys!

Yesterday a friend of mine asked me if I wanted to go to F.A.C.T.S on sunday. This is a comics, sci-fi and anime festival in Ghent. Of course I said yes. Always funny to take pictures at these kind of events.

One thing I liked a lot was the enthusiasm of the visitors. Most of them were wearing a costume of their favorite caracter. One guy was dressed as Sherlock Holmes and every time somebody took a picture he would act like a real detective. They didn’t mind at all to pose. At first I thought they would ask for money but no sir. Really a lot of fun for a photographer when they are so into character. I have to admit though that I was a bit scared of the Freddy Krugers in the room. Hopefully I won’t have any nightmares, I’m not a big horror movies fan.

I thought it was hilarious how the kids were hypnotized by the games. (Of course also the adults haha)

There were 2 big rooms where you could buy all kinds of stuff. From comics to video games. My friend filled his trunk with gadgets from his favorite movies/games. One of the things he bought was a real size Star Wars Clones trooper helmet. Boys will be boys.

See you next year
