London Film and Comic Con 2017 – Day 2 – Alyson Hannigan & YALC

Catch up on Day 1 here! 🙂 Another early start Sunday as I decided to get my new Witchcraft journal signed by Alyson. I wasn’t sure if my diamond pass allowed me to go down her autograph queue a second time so I picked up a VQ ticket (number 54 just in case). The 5 of us decided to have a group photo on the Big Bang Theory sofa and each had a turn in Sheldon’s spot. We had 5 photos so were able to do 5 different poses. I’ve done prop photo shoots before bit this was definitely one Read More…

London Film and Comic Con 2017 – Day 1 – The weekend I met my idol

I’ve just had the most amazing weekend at London Film and Comic Con with my family and my sister’s friend. Honestly I think it was their best one yet but that could be because I checked something off my bucket list! After 19 years or so I finally got to meet one of my idols, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Alyson Hannigan (Willow). Alyson was announced back in May along with her husband Alexis Denisof who plays Wesley in Buffy and Angel. I checked out the website as soon as they were announced and snapped up a diamond pass for Alyson Read More…

Tips for your first comic con

My first convention was a little Doctor Who event in 2008 called Dalek Invasion which was held at Yeovilton Museum. I met 6th Doctor Colin Baker, spent too much money (!) and was in awe of the fabulous costumes and prop displays I saw. Since then I’ve been to loads of conventions (normally 6 a year) and my next convention is London Film and Comic Con in July and will be my 8th time attending this event and marks my 4th convention so far this year. I’ve been asked by Eventbrite* to share some of my tips for attending comic Read More…

DVD Organisation

I’m a DVD/Blu Ray collector. I like to own physical media over electronic copies of anything, including books and music. However, my growing collection has taken over the living room. Here’s one of our bookcases – the tidiest one! Problem is, even though our bookcases are generally tidy. I can never find the DVD or Blu Ray I want to watch. There’s no organisation. When we moved into this house, we simply piled them on, along with our books. Resulting in some shelves like this: I had thought about putting them into DVD binders or into filing boxes, after reading Read More…

Collectormania Milton Keynes 21

This past weekend (17th-18th May) was the 21st Collectormania at Milton Keynes and the 6th that I’ve been to. I went along on the Saturday with my family. The main draw for me was to meet Billy Boyd (Pippin from Lord of the Rings) and some World Snooker Champions: Mark Selby, Neil Robertson and Shaun Murphy. The day for me, started at 5.30am! We got to Milton Keynes at around 8am and qieued for the doors to open at 9am. As there is no charge to get in to this convention, it’s always a busy one. Once inside, we located Read More…

Happy Birthday to me!

So, Wednesday (7th) was my birthday! I had the whole week off work and decided to do a little something each day to celebrate. Monday – BBQ As it was early May Bank Holiday in the UK, all my family had the day off work and decided to throw me a birthday BBQ at my house. In true fashion, we had too much food prepared! My sister made me a birthday cake and cupcakes – they were themed around my favourite book as a child. Tuesday – Dinner and a movie Artur surprised me by booking the day off work Read More…
