OFFICIAL 'INTRODUCE YOURSELF' THREAD!
Posted 12 July 2006 - 08:29 AM
Have been saying ill get round to that for a couple of days now, but with Laptop back I can add photos .
Well my screen name was a spelling mistake on my behalf and I have kept it, im Alex.
Im 18 just finished A levels and struggling to sort out all the paper work (more than usual, due to male chicken ups at the Institute of Financial Services) for Uni. I studied and failed Physics and History, and should have passed in Business. I also have a diploma in Finance.
Out side of school I have tought with the Sea Cadet Corps, teaching, First Aid, Meteorology, Admin and Office Skills, Communications, and Marine Engineering.
I started learning to drive at the age of just 10. Yes this is 100% serious, I have a DVD made for anyone non believeing. It was at a private club Under 17 Car Club (U17CC), which would take you to various locations throughout the country and you would learn to drive on private land, in a controlled enviroment. You drove your parents cars, until your standard got up and then generally you took other peoples cars and drove them too.
By the age of 13 I had driven an 18 Wheel Articulated Lorry, a Toyota MR2, A Ferrari 355, a Bently, a Limo and many more, by the time I turned 17 I was driving trucks and vans all the time, a friend used to bring his racing modified car (which he races professionally, for BLR) and I would race that. I had also driven everything from Fire Engines to Diggers. (My younger brother 12 is now going through the same club).
If you are a parent this is a great idea
I am also a keen wakeboarder and plan to spend most of this summer out on the water, tearing it up and having fun.
I have been to evey Collectormania except C5 and that was due to family problems. Love the shows completely, love the crew, and love the organisers. They always make a great family atmosphere.
Im going to stop boring you here, but msn: email@example.com

- Most photos of me will include me looking like this: this: or this: . It's a proven fact.
- I'm at my happiest when I am with my friends or when I am creating. I prefer to make peoples presents rather than but them. This could be because I'm cheap.. but also because it makes it a whole load more personal. They usually look a bit like this:
And I'm crap at getting things done, so I have quite a backlog... but I do take requests

I'm Andrea, one of several people who post as Showmasters (yes, I know it's confusing. Sorry!). I'm very nearly 36 and live at Showmasters Towers in sunny Milton Keynes. I'm usually to be found at the organisers booth at the shows (look for the person with the glazed expression and large coffe mug in her hand), unless I manage to escape for a few minutes! At forum events I'm usually the one rolling her eyes at the antics of the other Showmaster, Jason.
Err, not much else to say. I spend most of my time working. Have a reputation for taking sneaky snapshots, the best of which can be seen HERE (click on the public albums link near the bottom).
Other than that I'm into Stargate, Harry Potter (we HAVE to have a party for the next book launch!), etc, etc. When I'm drunk I look like this:
And when I'm relaxed (ha! like that ever happens!) I look like this:
Not much else to say. Come and say "hi" if you see me at the shows, and if you'll buy me a coffee I'll love you forever!

That's nice isn't it.
Also, I'm 20, have blonde hair, drink too much, general normal-type human being. Even though I've been told on numerous occasions that I am nothing of the sort. I don't mind which I am really. Tra lalalallala.
Anyway, I am currently in AUSTRALIA *bums majorly* and I looooooove it, yay! I just got a job that will keep me going until december, which means Christmas in the sun for me this year, YAY! (btw, if you see my Dad, don't tell him about the Dec thing yet coz he doesn't know, hehe). Before now, I stayed in Sydney for a month with my lovely friend Ivana and then travelled for a month. I went to Melbourne, Brisbane, the Whitsundays, Fraser Island, Cairns, all of the BEAUTIFUL stuff, mmm
Here is a picture of me doing what I usually do:

i'm 22, live in northern ireland, and i don't get out much (could you guess?)
i enjoy computer games, music, a very small handful of TV programs (stargate, both of; star trek, all but enterprise; red dwarf; blackadder; dr who; buffy/angel; stuff like that - and also fantasy stuff, and a bit of anime)
i do watch films, but not as many as i should - the problem of money, as well as no decent cinema, and not enough HDD space...
the books i read are almost exclusively fantasy - LOTR, janny wurts, trudi canavan. also have a few computer books lyin around, as well as philosophy and hitory books (both fiction and non-fiction) but the majority would be the fantasy ones...
oh, and i'm a vampire... (well, i don't drink blood, but i do sit up half the night)
i don't go out much for 3 reasons - not many ppl local that i'd want to spend time with, no money, and nowhere to go even if i had it.
and yeah, i'm lookin at whats gone before... i hate writin these things, so i'm just gettin ideas from everyone else...
if you need some kind of 'real name' for me on here... Garret. (my real real name isn't being mentioned, again for personal reasons...) a few of you might even understand the forum name i have now from this!
lets see... events i've been to... LFCC1, C6,7,8 (i think? they merge together a bit... which ones were marsters and shatner at? i think that was 7&8 respectively...)
languages i know... a bit of spanish and a bit of irish. did spanish to GCSE, but i've never used it since, so while its all deep in there somewhere, its buried under so much junk... as for irish, i know enough to pass myself, and more than many where i am. want to learn latin sometime...
and to finish, i believe?
MSN - firstname.lastname@example.org
i use this occasionally - its not my main email, but i keep an eye on it. i keep my main one private at the moment.
myspace - no chance.
LJ - i barely look at it myself, let alone update... so no
EDIT ouch, thats longer than i thought...

I'm a big Joss Whedon fan and I love love love Firefly, Buffy and Angel. I can't pick a favourite because every time I do, I watch one of the others and change my mind. They're all great! I also love LOTR and could hardly contain my excitement waiting for each film as they came out in the cinemas!
I'm quite new to the showmasters thing. My first convention was C9 and I went to the LFCC a few weeks ago, both of which were a lot of fun. I'm going to try to go to C10 as well, so I'm well and truly hooked now! I had no idea what to expect at C9, but I read lots of posts on the forum which were really informative and helped me a lot - thanks guys! - and everyone at the show was so friendly I had a great time.
I'd like to add a picture, but I'm not sure how... I clicked the 'insert image' button and it asked me for the URL - does that mean the picture has to come from the net?
Anyways... enough about me. It was nice reading everyone's replies to this topic. Maybe I'll see some of you around at a show
Posted 17 July 2006 - 09:55 PM
My turn? yeah.. okay, here we go, I'm not good at this kinda stuff but I'll give it a try..
I'm Jennifer, 17 years old (soon to be 18, not in such a rush though) and I live in Sweden, yes, the wonderful country of Sweden which I wont be living in my whole life. I'm half swedish and half american if that's interesting.
So yeah, right now I study the normal swedish, english, science stuff but I also study media and things, as in the history of tv, radio and all that fun, exciting stuff. I also study photagraphy, and make movies and write scripts in class, creative stuff like that. I'm also just starting a few classes in psychology etc. wow I'm boring you, I tend to do that, I babble a lot when I'm in the right mood, I'll stop talking about school though, 'cause that's just not something I wanna talk about.
So yeah, that was school (sorry about that), let me see here, what else..Music, can never go wrong with music.. I mean you can, if it's sucky music, but most music don't suck, so yeah, I like music, I also like movies and a few tv shows.. But I'm not gonna name them all because I know if I would do that I would write waaaay too much but if you for some reason wanna see what kind of stuff I like or if you just wanna say hey, you can go to my myspace http://www.myspace.com/bothswus ... bothswus being my aim and my msn is firstname.lastname@example.org
So yeah, school, music, movies, tv and yeah. Most of all I just care about my friends, and because of that, I have to name them all.... no of course I wont.. don't worry. But my friends and my family are more important then anything.
Yeah, um, I think I should be done now... oohh, I like travelling, no, I LOVE travelling.
I should also tell people how I got in to all of this. First of all, I'm a newbie, I'm on the forums kinda a lot but I don't post that much, or kinda at all, just a little, not really though.
I started crewing at the sci-fi event in Sweden and from there I became interested in the events in England. I first crewed with SM at the latest LFCC, and I hope I get to crew at C10.
I guess that's that
Hopefully I'll see you all soon.

Im Elaine (Or Lainey) I not really a 'reg' here but im not a newbi either.
Im 17 from Barnsley and I study media at college and LOVE it! I really love the singer Darren Hayes so can often be found talking about him and boring people with random Darren facts that they really dont want to know.
Iv been going to CM events since C5, The first autograph I ever got was 'Craig Parker' I loooove him and since them iv been hooked on LOTR autographs, my only expetion so far is Alan Cumming. Im currently really into Harry Potter and am considering getting some HP auto's at future events instead of just LOTR. My fave HP character is Draco, I have read the books but my fave characters are based on the films, I also like Lucius, I managed to see Tom Felton at C7 but the guest line up was so amazing that time i was too poor to get his auto.
I can be found at Collectormania and CollectormaniaGmex. I can never afford LFACC If you see me please say hi.
This is me my hair is not always curly...check my myspace for more pics :)

My name is Matt and I’m 24 (25 next month ) currently living in Bromley, kent, which is essientially SE London.
I try to apply my trade as an illustrator, working on online comics, websites and some magazine work but I also go to shows exhibiting and selling prints.
I’m mostly a Star Wars nut, but like pretty much anything to do with Sci-Fi & Fantasy whether it be film, TV, books, comics, toys. There's loads of other stuff I like too, but wont bore you all
I’m also the Chapter Rep for the London FanForce over on the boards at theforce.net, where we organise regular social meets (all are welcome!).
My first Showmasters experience was way back during the dizzy heights of Collectormania 2, and since then I’ve been to everyone as well as the LF&CC and G-Mex shows. Life just wouldn’t be the same unless I had my bi-annual trip to Milton Keynes
Here’s a pic of me at LF&CC ‘06, dressed in full Jedi gear:

I like dancing and go to a Latin dance class each week. I also like music and go to quite a few gigs. I'll listen to most types of music but the main types that I like are usually described on their Myspaces as Indie/alternative/folk/rock.
The first of these events that I went to was G-mex mainly because of my love of Harry Potter but I'm also now interested in Dr Who, LOTR, POTC and Lost. I've now been to 3 cons and loved them all, especially LFCC as that was my first attempt at going in costume but I now have plans for others at the future events.

I'm Kirsty, I'm 19, nearly 20. I'm at college, re-taking my A-levels (long story and one day, if you like, I shall bore you with it )I'm studying English Literature and Language, Media and History. I'm really enjoying it this time around.
I've been attending events since C4 and have crewed a fair few. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Events are awesome, I get to see many people that I love who live miles away and also meet some great new people every time.
I enjoy the regular stuff like movies, music and books. I also write a fair bit when I have the patience. I like to dance stupidly to music (as you can see below) and make people laugh. I love laughing myself and Tash is able to make me do this quite a lot. I love chatting and do this often. I love Ice-cream far too much. SO buy me some. If we're in MK I shall have some cotton candy flavoured Ice-cream from the Miss Millies stand. Thanks :)
I love to meet new people so if you see me wondering around events please do come and say hi!
Here is a picture:
yep that's how cool I am.
