Recap: Fan Expo Canada #FXC17
Founded back in 1995, Fan Expo Canada is still going strong. The four-day event truly has something for every family member. From comic books, to film, to gaming, to horror and television, Fan Expo Canada in Toronto is certainly where you want to be during the final long weekend of the summer.
There is so much to see, it’s hard to know where to begin. But certainly one of the highlights was the Thor: Ragnarok costume exhibit. The costumes at the exhibit were the actual clothing that the actors in the movie wore during the filming.
