*clears off the cobwebs, blows the dust off her keyboard* Hey… It’s been a while. Should I re-introduce myself? I don’t know how a come back works…
I guess I should apologise. I’ve been away for a while – it was a bit here and there before I left, and then I just vanished. Well, lucky you – I’m back! My format may change a little. Blogs will now be shorter, snappier, to the point. It will be every week OR every two weeks – I can’t promise that I can see/read/watch/do something new every week when working full time now. But I am back, I promise.
Anyway, I was invited back to Comic Con in St Albans this year! Like last year, I had a blast! Unfortunately, I was unable to stay for very long, and didn’t have much time to talk to all of the celebs there, as they were all so busy with their signings (maybe next year I’ll go for the end rather than the beginning, that worked better last year) – it’s been a super busy weekend, with our local village weekend, therefore I didn’t get to speak to that many people, and only spent a small amount of money (last year I spent way too much!)
My material gains this year include – a limited edition collectors coin from Xmen: Apocalypse, A Wonder Woman print from Sam Rogers Art, A Khal Drogo and Dany print from Kirsten Rose, A pin-up Rapunzel print from Duncan Gutteridge, vegan chocolate from Ana of rockpopcandy, A sushi bathbomb from Lush, Luke and Harry from Chaos City Comics and their local artist Adam Falp from whom I got an adaptation of Frankenstein.
I spoke to many lovely cosplayers, including a Deadpool with an amazing accent (I recall it being West Country off the top of my head) and he was lovely to talk to. I also saw many Ghostbusters – which is good, because what if there’s a ghost around!
Pictures below! – I haven’t tagged any of them, but if you want one tagged please message me and I will!
I didn’t get many calling cards this year, but thank you to everyone that I spoke to especially – Sam from Sam Rogers Art, Tony from Tony’s Movie Stuff, Duncan Gutteridge (original Sonic artist), Kirsten from Kirstenrose.co.uk, Luke and Harry from Chaos City Comics and Adam Falp, Ana from, Rockpopcandy.co.uk and the ladies from St Alban’s Lush!
