Hotel review – Hilton London Olympia

After a long, tiring day at London Film and Comic con, we headed back to our hotel, the Hilton Olympia which was a 5 minute walk away which came in very handy getting up on Sunday to get our VQ tickets. Unfortunately that’s one of the only good things about our experience. The room was good, don’t get me wrong, it’s probably one pf the best hotel beds I’ve ever slept on, and I slept well but the service in the bar / restaurant was atrocious! We waited an hour for food only for it to come out cold and Read More…

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…

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…

Spring London Film and Comic Con – Nick Frost

This weekend was Spring London Film and Comic Con and I headed down on the Saturday to meet Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block, Hot Fuzz etc) and catch up with some friends. The day started early with us catching the coach to London at around 5am so we could get in the queue early and have a better chance at meeting Nick Frost, it’s never guaranteed but we’ve never missed out on meeting someone we really wanted to yet (*touch wood*). Once we got to London it was a short tube ride from Victoria to West Read More…
