Organiser Scott Gorman said: “It was a good weekend, I’m still recovering for the 5.30am starts, but we’ve had a lot of great feedback. Loads of people turned out for the cosplay, there was loads of brilliant costumes. It was a decent enough venue and well-located.

“Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend, thanks for an amazing time Irvine.
