Watch Video from Invasion Belfast

Star Wars convention at W5 attracts costumed fans from across Northern Ireland – watch video featuring Darth Vader actor David Prowse as Creativity Month gains momentum

In a sports and entertainment complex far, far away from the centre of town, hundreds of Star Wars fans congregated in W5 at the Odyssey Arena this past weekend to revel in galactic geekiness as the Invasion Belfast convention took Belfast by storm.

With original Darth Vader actor David Prowse in attendance – he wore the cape and stalked the Death Star corridors in George Lucas' classic 1980s cinema series, though his performance was later overdubbed by the infinitely more threatening James Earl Jones – as well as various 'costumers' from organisers the Emerald Garrison, Invasion Belfast 2015 was one of the highlights of the Creativity Month programme.

Watch the video below to see which costume was the best and whet your appetite for the JJ Abrahms reboot, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is due out in cinemas December 2015.
