BUFFALO, N.Y. -- T.V. characters, super heroes and comic book characters could be seen in the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center Saturday and Sunday -- in costume, that is.

People dressed up as their favorite characters for the Nickel City Con, an event that drew hundreds of people and featured around 133 vendors.

The family-friendly event also drew some celebrity guests, such as wrestling legend Ric Flair.

Actors from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the popular Game of Thrones television drama also made an appearance.

Nickel City Con also included adult and children cosplay contests and a gaming room.
