An array of cosplayers dressed as Disney favourites and sci-fi and fantasy film characters were in Llandudno earlier today.

Led by Ysgol Aberconwy design and technology technician Ryan Davies, Mary Poppins, Snow white and a Star Wars Stormtrooper set off from Llandudno promenade to Porth Eirias in Colwyn Bay as part of a 10km charity walk.

The aim is to raise £200 for charities Air Ambulance and Ty Gobaith in memory of Mr Davies’ friend Glyn Bailey who died in January.

Speaking ahead of the event Mr Davies, said: “These charities are close to the family of my friend Glyn, who sadly passed away in January and leaves behind his beautiful daughter Poppie and wife Denise.

“It’s Disney themed because Glyn was a huge Disney fan - Buzz Lightyear being his favourite - while Denise and Poppie also regularly attend Comic Con events too along with myself.

“Glyn will always be remembered for his kind nature, infectious laugh, unashamed geekiness and general awesomeness.”

Mr Davies, who was dressed as a Stormtrooper during the event, said: “It’s a screen accurate suit from the original A New Hope mouldings its ABS plastic, so it gets quite hot. I’ve fitted some fans into the helmet to help cool me down on the walk.

“My wife Bernadette and kids Olivia, eight, and Ethan, 11, are supporting me on the day dressed as Rey and Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens and Carl, the old guy from Pixar’s Up.

“I also have some support from Powerplay Musical Theatre Company so there will be some Disney Princesses and Mary Poppins on the walk too.”
