20 years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer 

On March 10th 1997 ​the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired in the USA, that’s right – Buffy is 20 years old today! That makes me feel old… I’ve been watching Buffy since it first aired in the UK and have rewatched it countless times on VHS and DVD.  I’ve had some great experiences because of Buffy, conventions, themed parties, acting out scenes from Buffy and putting on shows of Once More With Feeling (the musical episode) as a kid etc. I’ve also made many great friends through our mutual love of Buffy that it wouldn’t seem right Read More…

London Film and Comic Con 2016

Last Friday Ryan, my parents and I left home at 5am and travelled to London for London Film and Comic Con! Which is one of the biggest conventions in the UK and one of my favourite events as they have a wide range of celebrity guests attending and unique dealers. We got to the venue at around 7am and there was already a queue forming; rumour has it some people had been there since 5am! Once inside the convention we headed to the guest signing area on the first floor to collect our virtual queue (VQ) tickets. It is never Read More…

Prophecy – Buffy the Vampire Slayer convention

Prophecy was this past weekend – a three day convention for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and my first convention by this organiser (Rouge Events) so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The main draw for me was meeting Alyson Hannigan but unfortunately she cancelled 3 weeks before the event. 🙁 I was gutted! As were many others who had purchased tickets to the convention. The company actually had three cancellations in the week’s leading up to the event.

Tattoo planning

May 6th 2016 will be 10 years since my first (and only!) tattoo. For those that don’t know it’s on my lower back and is the same as the one Faith from Buffy the Vampire Slayer has on her arm, I wrote a post about my tattoo experience / 18th birthday at the time. I’ve had various ideas for tattoos since but nothing I love enough to go ahead with, yet. Here are some of my ideas… Stargate symbol for Earth Possible placement: Right wrist Serenity (ship from Firefly) / Possible placement: Left foot, upper back or left hip Tribal Read More…

My tattoo experience

Stats: Location: Lower Back Price: £70 Design: Celtic/Tribal/Faith from Buffy’s tattoo Date of Tattoo: 6th May 2006 Time Taken: 50 mins Place: Skin Graffiti, Swindon History I had wanted this tattoo since I first saw Faith baring it on the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which was in about 1998, so I would have been about 11 or 12 at the time of first wanting the tattoo. But of course my parents said no, and that if I still wanted it when I was 18 then I could have it for my birthday. Fast forward to March 2006 and Read More…
