Colchester Invasion 2014
Since its inception back in 2011, the annual Colchester Invasion has become something of a must attend event, and this year’s which will be held on Saturday 6th September is looking like being the biggest and best one yet!
Organised by Kerrie Williams, who being the owner of the local Ace Comics shop knows a thing or two about super heroes and costumed characters, this year’s invaders include Freddy Kreuger, Judge Dredd, Buffy Summers, Batman, a squadron of Stormtroopers, a troupe of Ghostbusters, Vikings, Zombies and even the Stay Puft Marshmallow who will be towering over Ace Comics to help celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary.
Throughout the day there will be plenty of photo opportunities for fans, both with the human (and alien) characters and the impressive vehicles that will be on show, including the Dukes of Hazzard and Starsky and Hutch cars. Make up artist extraordinaire Clive Double will be on hand to create an army of the undead, and steampunk magician Dean Allen Jones will be performing his unique brand of conjuring conundrums.
Best of all, Invasion Colchester is held to raise money for two very worthy charities, St Helena Hospice and the Colchester Hospitals Charity, and to help swell the coffers there is a raffle with some incredible prizes including a Marvel Morphsuit, cinema tickets, and a Walking Dead hardback collection signed by none other than artist Charlie Adlard himself!
Shadowlocked will be there (and in costume) so why not come and join us for what will be sure to be an awesome day, and for a good cause too!
