I know it’s been a while since my last update! But I am happy to say that the speech therapy has really helped and I’m talking normally again however, I have damaged my high vocal chords. I can’t scream. Which may have come in handy for Hallowhedon last weekend. 😉 Seriously though, I’m just happy to have my voice back.
On to the title of this post…
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as other Joss Whedon shows – Angel and Firefly, and this past Halloween weekend I spent it meeting some of the cast members from Buffy and Angel. 😀 At a convention called Hallowhedon (combining the word Halloween with show creator Joss Whedon).
I loved every minute of it! I managed to get all their autographs and got professional photographs with each of the guests who were there – James Marsters “Spike”, Nicholas Brendon “Xander Harris”, Mercedes McNab “Harmony Kendall”, Mark Lutz “The Groosalugg”, and James Leary “Clem”. They were all really lovely and I’m very happy I went.
This was not my first convention (that was a little Doctor Who event called Dalek Invasion) but it was my first Buffy / Angel convention and I admit to fan girling a bit, OK, a lot, when I met Nicholas Brendon and James Marsters for the first time.
I have to say James Marsters is a star! He had an accident a couple of weeks ago while filming and ended up with a spinal injury 🙁 but he still came to the event and made sure every fan got their photos and autographs with him. It was clear he was in pain.
During the weekend the organisers announced they’re putting on another Hallowhedon convention next year. I’ve already booked my tickets! 😀
They announced the first guest as well, after an auction that was held Saturday afternoon: Anthony Head who plays Giles in Buffy. I’m very much looking forward to meeting him.
How did everyone spend their Halloween? Have you ever been to a convention (Buffy or otherwise)?
