Members of Thanet Cosplay will be out in an array of weird and wonderful costumes for the official opening of Ramsgate fantasy store Geek Havok.
Food, music, a 10% discount and even cuddles on request will be on offer today (May 27) from 9am to 6pm.
The shop is the creation of Ramsgate dad-of-two Johnny Simpson and pal Ian Reddin, who is currently studying a PHD and Kent and Canterbury University.
The premises was formerly a doll shop but after several months of clearing and refurbishment it is now a hub of all things fantasy.
The aim is to have something for everyone rather than catering to a niche market.
Good include comics, graphic novels, encyclopedias, statues, figures, toys, DVDs, games and more.
Geek Havok is at 4 Turner Street.
