DEV CON, Plymouth 2015 – UPDATE

Well DEV CON has come and gone and I have to say it was an absolutely fantastic event.. ..even the weather was good when queuing outside. This was also a really good opportunity to see the incredible amount of work and effort that had been put into peoples cosplay.

The ticket prices were really reasonable at £3 for an individual and £10 for a family ticket; entry to the event was also quick and easy.

The costumes were truly excellent and really exceeded my expectations as did the event itself. It was also really nice to see the appeal of the event in general, and the cosplay across such a wide range of ages.

I was really surprised, and happy, to report that (for me) the event was even better than the MCM Comic Con I went to in Birmingham, earlier in the year.

DEV CON returns to the Plymouth Guildhall!

Although DEV CON is a far smaller event it was just as well organised and there seemed to be just as much on offer.. fact I purchased quite a few items I have been trying to hunt down for a while now.

The layout of the event in the Guildhall, a really lovely venue, was excellent.. ..with only slight delays to get to see some things; amazing when you consider how many people were there.

It was really nice to catch up with some familiar faces from the various stores around Plymouth.. .. the range of action figures on offer, in particular, was just great.

There was a lovely friendly atmosphere to the event and every one seemed to be really happy and enjoying themselves.. ..this is a great fun event to take the kids to!

Towards the end of our day at DEV CON we also had nice, very reasonably priced, sandwiches and drinks from the ‘Marvel’ cafe.

As an extra bonus my ticket also gave me free entrance to the record fair that was being run downstairs.. ..whilst being a far more modest event than DEV CON there was a great selection of vinyl on offer for sale.

Would I go to DEV CON again? Try and stop me!

So what did I actually buy at DEV CON? A mint, boxed Doctor WhoVoc Robot‘ action figure, a ‘Doctor Who Annual‘ from 1980 (a copy of which I once owned as a child) and a great ‘30th Anniversary Ultimate Freddy‘ action figure set.. of all three to come at some point!
