After 20 years in Toronto, the Fan Expo pop culture convention headed westward for the first time to Vancouver this past weekend.

At the core of all such events are the stars of television shows, movies and video games, many from the science-fiction genre. At the Vancouver expo, attendees lined up to get autographs from the likes of Adam West and Burt Ward - the stars of the 1960s Batman TV show - as well as several cast members of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Even Alan Ruck, who played Mathew Broderick's sidekick Cameron in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, was there signing autographs, proving that such memorabilia conventions aren't limited to just sci-fi.

On the other side of things, many fans also took the opportunity to dress up as their favourite characters. From comic books and video games to cartoons and movies, Fan Expo attendees spared no details with their costumes.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I hang on to my tech goodies for good reason.
