(6 Apr 2017) LEADIN:In Dubai, a cartoon carnival has come to town. If you want to talk to a skeleton or check out some wacky-looking swords, Dubai Comicon is the place to be.STORYLINE:Fans pose at Dubai's annual Comicon, a celebration of all things comic, cartoon, fantasy, and game-oriented. The three-day event, organisers and attendees say, is growing in popularity in the region. Saudi Arabia hosted its first Comicon this year. Dubai has hosted Comicon for 6 years running. This year's event is expected to attract thousands. Ali Alshehri, dressed in a costume related to the "Breaking Bad" television series, said he came to get a chance to dress up. "I came to Comicon this year because I purchased this costume and I'm stuck with it, so I have to join Comicon to use it, use my money," he says. The venue was also a place where new businesses could highlight their products, including a "pimp my gadget" service, which will turn almost any object into a technicolour work of art. Omar Ahmed Al-Naqbi, 22, from the United Arab Emirates, has come to Comicon for a couple of years. This year, he was dressed as one of his favourite characters, Nektus, from Final Fantasy 15. "The first time that I came with my brothers, and I saw a lot of people wearing cosplay, so I just decided, I have to join with them. So I chose some character that I like, and this is one of them," he says. The event will also feature concerts, and appearances by stars including Liam Cunningham from Game of Thrones. Fatma Sahem, 25, graphic designer and artist from the United Arab Emirates, said she comes to Comicon yearly to display her fantasy-inspired drawings and watercolours. "I love sharing my work here because online, you get an audience but they don't interact with you. Here, some people would give you their comments, and some people would actually buy them and say, oh, I know you from Instagram, I know you from this website. And it's nice to know more people in real-life," she says.You can license this story through AP Archive: Find out more about AP Archive:
