Have you ever? Fandom Edition

Being a geek I have a fair share of favourite fandoms, the main ones being Buffy the vampire slayer and Star Wars, but there are others too (like Doctor Who and True Blood). So when I saw that Michelle of A Geek Girls Guide had created a tag specifically for fandoms, I couldn’t resist. Because, to me, my love of fandoms has given me so many wonderful experiences, from meeting my idols at comic conventions, to making life long friendships. So, let’s get started… ‘Have You Ever?’ Tag – Fandom Edition Have you ever made fan art? Yes, I used […]

20 years of Angel the TV show

20 years ago today one of my favourite TV shows, Angel premiered on the WB Network. For those not in the know, it’s a spin-off of my all time favourite TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Created by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt. The show details the ongoing trials of Angel, a vampire with a soul. So, who is Angel? From his back story on Buffy we learnt that his human soul was restored to him by gypsies, as punishment for murder of one of their own. This means that Angel now feels deep remorse for all the actions he […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
