Winter is Coming

Winter is Coming – It’s definitely getting colder lately! The clocks went back last weekend (27th October) in the UK, so the days are shorter and it’s getting darker a lot earlier. 🙁 The thing I love about this time of year though is how colourful it is! Leaves changing colour, dropping from trees and going ‘crunch’ under foot. 🙂 I also love Halloween and fireworks! What I’m not loving is how Christmas seemed to start back in September this year! Haha. I don’t think about the ‘C’ word until after Halloween is over. This Halloween was spent, as previous […]

MCM Spring Memorabilia Show – Birmingham March 2013

This weekend was the Memorabilia show in Birmingham. A two-day general signing event primarily focusing on British television and old movies with a few glamour models and sports stars (footballers mostly) thrown in. I attended on the Saturday with my parents with the sole intention to meet ‘the knights of Camelot’, three of them anyway from the BBC show ‘Merlin‘ – fantastic show by the way, if you haven’t seen it – the ones there were Rupert Young (Sir Leon), Eoin Macken (Sir Gwaine) and Alexander Vlahos (Series 5: Mordred). Besides the knights, I hadn’t planned to meet any other […]

Bitten 3 – UK True Blood Convention

This past weekend was my mum’s big 5-0 and, as she’s a big fan of the television show True Blood. I decided to surprise her with tickets to Massive Events 3rd True Blood convention: Bitten 3. Although I did end up having to tell her we were going so she could book the time off work. But I did manage to keep her ticket type –  Standard, Silver or Gold – a secret. For those that aren’t familiar with Massive Events, they specialise in 3-day fandom conventions and have put on other events for TV shows such as Stargate (Chevron), […]

Geeky Birthday Weekend at Chevron 7.6 – UK Stargate Convention

Hey there! Things have been busy since my last post. I celebrated my birthday weekend at the Chevron 7.6 UK Stargate convention and we finally got a new computer after our last one suffered a fatal computer failure. I also purchased a new laptop so we have a back-up if any goes wrong in the future. Fingers crossed it doesn’t!🤞🤞 But I’m happy to have a back-up, just in case. It feels so good to be online and able to blog again; I’ve missed it.  I’ve been to a couple of comic conventions including the Spring Memorabilia show in March, […]

Winter Memorabilia Show Birmingham, November 2010

Yesterday was the Winter Memorabilia Show at the Birmingham NEC. A comic convention covering multiple fandoms, with celebrity guests, talks, photo ops, a large dealers room and so much more. It’s held twice a year (in March and November) and this marks my third time attending a Memorabilia event. The Winter Memorabilia Show is always one of the highlights of the convention calendar for me and a great way to finish our year. Like usual we arrived at the show at around 8:15 in the morning and headed straight to the ‘pre-paid’ queue. I think it’s always worth getting to […]

Hallowhedon 2 Cosplay Experience

Last weekend was Hallowhedon 2, a 3-day unofficial convention celebrating the various TV shows created by Joss Whedon. It was also my first solo cosplay experience! Having previously cosplayed as a Lornette (with my mum) at the first Hallowhedon. I decided very early on that my Hallowhedon 2 cosplay would be Kaylee Frye. Hallowhedon 2 Cosplay Experience Cosplay is something I’d like to do more of so, for this convention, I went as Firefly mechanic Kaylee Frye. Played by the lovely Jewel Staite, who was also attending as a guest that weekend. But even before Jewel was announced as a […]
