With the first full day of National Fan Expo (actually the second), more people were out on the convention floor showing off their mad skills with a needle and thread, and sometimes plastic, metal and duct tape. Mixed in with the usual zombies and superheroes, were a large number of people wearing the finest gear of Westeros.
