Collectormania 23

It was back to Stadium:MK for what many people believe to be the last Collectormania in MK. To be honest, I'm kinda glad. Personally, I don't think the stadium is suitable. For the first time in a while I had my brother and his family with me. He is disabled and had great difficulty in... Continue Reading →

First Contact Day

This was my first event of the year and all I can say is WOW! It was also my first time in a long while that I had volunteered to help out at a con. The last time I did so was back in the 90s at the Rising Star events. The weekend began with... Continue Reading →

LFCC Winter

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!

LFCC

Not many guests that I wanted to meet this time around. John Barrowman from Dr Who was just starting a new show called Torchwood. He was friendly but quiet and very tight-lipped about the project. I then met Gates McFadden of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I was very disappointed. She was not busy and... Continue Reading →
