Work is steaming full ahead on costumes and props for the Sci-Fi Weekender 5 in North Wales with the Area 51 workshop in the throes of preparing items for this major event.

A cluster of costumes designed to represent Dark Elves for a Lord of The Rings show are being created together with an arsenal of futuristic weapons and signs to be used at the weekend-long event.

The elf costumes have been sanded down to make them look battle-worn while dry brush copper enamel has been added together with green feathers.

The costumes are multi-functional and adaptable for use by both dancers and stilt walking performers.

A sign is being created for "The Strip Club" area for comics enthusiasts at the Hafan Y Mor complex in Pwllheli, North Wales where the event is being staged.
