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 –ย  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!๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž 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.ย  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 […]

Hallowhedon | UK Joss Whedon Convention

I know it’s been a while since my last update. I’ve been focusing on getting well so blogging took a bit of a back seat. But I am happy to say that speech therapy has really helped and I’m more or less, talking normally again. There are still a few days I struggle if my throat is particularly dry however. And I have damaged my high vocal cords, meaning I can’t scream. Which may have come in handy for Hallowhedon last weekend (no that’s not a typo! I’ll explain soon…) ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seriously though, I’m just happy to have my voice […]
