April 2017~ FCD Out of the Ashes 2.0

I honestly don't know where to begin! Video courtesy of Mr Vestek Once again I was part of the team behind the organisation and running of the event. As one of the management team, my role was to be responsible for the dealers, talks and main rooms alongside one other manager (Fudge). I arrived at... Continue Reading →

October 2014~ LFCC Winter

Last con of the year for me and a quieter event compared to the madness of the summer one. As normal lots of costumes on display and I again helped with the charity stall for our Starfleet Chapter, the USS Iceni. It was a chance for me to get a few more names on my... Continue Reading →

July 2014~ LFCC ’14

Showmasters hit the ground running earlier in the year by announcing a big guest....Stan Lee. Little did they realise the interest it would generate. Ticket sales shot up so much that different passes had to be created. Comic and regular. Leading up to the show itself, many more big names were added including Carrie Fisher... Continue Reading →

May 2011~ Starfury Invasion

Also on my list were the cast from Being Human, William B Davis from The X Files,... Continue Reading →

The first night was the opening ceremony. The main headline guest had cancelled and they had a suprise,... Continue Reading →

May 2007~ Collectormania 11

I was only able to attend one day of this event. Was saving money for the big Star Wars event 2 months after. But, there were a few people I just had to meet! First up was Grace Park who plays Sharon Valerii (Boomer/Athena) in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. She was lovely and very friendly,... Continue Reading →

October 1999- Rising Star 8

Rising Star 8 would be the last convention I would attend in Southwest Virginia. Again there were plenty of return guests plus lots of new ones including Frank Gorshin (Batman, Star Trek), Julie Caitlin Brown (Babylon 5, Star Trek), Herbert Jefferson, Jr. (Battlestar Galactica), and Anne Lockhart (Battlestar Galactica). I'm missing lots of pictures from this... Continue Reading →
