Sci-fi and comic cons are some of the best events through which nerds like us get to meet each other and share our craziness for a particular franchise. They often give you the chance to meet some of your favourite actors from a show or a movie, and get your own signed goodie or a photograph to cherish for the rest of your life. The Capital Sci-Fi Con at Edinburgh has returned after a long time, and there you can meet up stars from Game of Thrones and the Star Wars franchises.
