What to expect at MCM Birmingham Comic Con

The MCM Comic Con and Memorabilia show in Birmingham has always been one of the convention highlights for me. In fact, their 2009 show was my first time at a comic-con style convention. Although I had been to a similar event a few months before; Dalek Invasion, a small scale Doctor Who convention at the Yeovilton Fleet Air Museum. Full of Doctor Who merchandise, prop displays, and even a special appearance by the 6th Doctor, Colin Baker. I loved it, and couldn’t wait for my next event, MCM Birmingham. Although I must admit I was feeling a little nervous. MCM […]

Have You Ever? Tag – Convention Edition

For me, the end of July usually means London Film and Comic Con, which is one of the highlights of the convention calendar for me. It also marks the Summer – Autumn convention season, which means I get to spend time with my convention family and like minded people. But sadly, like most large events most conventions been put on hold until later in the year. 🙁 Which is a shame. I’ve really missed going to conventions this year and being able to see my comic con family. So, when I stumbled up the ‘Have You Ever? Convention Edition’ tag […]

Anxiety Guide to Comic Con

I’ve been attending various comic con events throughout the UK (and one in Germany) for the past 11 years now. It’s the perfect way for me to spend time with like-minded people, meet up with friends I don’t see very often, and meet some of the actors and actresses I admire. But as the years have gone by and comic con has become more “mainstream”, the crowds have certainly gotten bigger! Which isn’t ideal for someone who suffers from anxiety. So with MCM Birmingham, Wales Comic-Con, and other comic con events coming up over the next few weeks, I thought […]

London Film and Comic Con 2019

Last weekend my family and I made our annual trip to Olympia for London Film and Comic Con 2019. It’s always one of highlights of the convention calendar for me and this year marks our tenth year of attending! I can’t quite believe I’ve been going to conventions for a over decade now (my first was Dalek Invasion back in 2008). London Film and Comic Con 2019 was set to be the biggest yet, with a guest list including Aquaman’s Jason Mamoa, Charlie Sheen, Batman’s Val Kilmer and Christina Ricci, to name but a few. Honestly the guest list gets […]

What’s in my bag? – Comic con edition

With comic con season in full swing, I thought now would be the perfect time to share what essentials I pack in my day bag. This is for a 3-day weekend convention and based on what I brought with me to London Film and Comic Con this past weekend (full write up on that to follow!). Ticket – Many conventions organisers now accept an e-ticket and some even have their own app. However I still like a paper copy in case my phone battery dies – which has happened. I usually spend a lot of battery power taking photos and […]

London Film and Comic Con 2018

Last month my family and I made our yearly trip to the Olympia Exhibition Centre for London Film and Comic con (LFCC). The event is held over three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) at the end of July and the highlight of the convention calendar for me. The show gets bigger every year and, in my opinion, this year’s line up was fantastic. With big names such as Jason Mamoa (Aquaman, Game of Thrones), Sam Neil (Jurassic Park), Meat Loaf and Steven Seagal attending the event. Along with not one, not two, but eight doctors from Doctor Who appearing over […]
