    Holly wanted me to post her pictures so everyone could see them so here they are. Mathew Lillard. It was only my partner getting the pic and we went past with her chair after her pic. Mathew spotted Holly and high fived her. Just as we were away he called her back and asked to see her Pikachu (or however you spell the thing). He then scootched down, grabbed her in and got the photographer to take her pic. What a guy.

    Last one: Sunday First was Martin Sheen and oh my goodness I can only echo what others have said and that's he was so wonderful in engaging with everyone, asking for everybody's name and shaking their hand. I thanked him after our photo was taken and his response was "thank *you* Kim" which just to me showed that he was genuinely listening to what people were saying to him and taking it in, just, yeah, what an experience getting to meet such a legend who was kind and warm and seemed to enjoy meeting us all <3 Robert Patrick was just so at ease with meeting everyone, very friendly, he was recognising folks he'd met earlier in the weekend and just seemed to go the extra mile to make it a great experience for everyone :) And last photo, Brendan Fraser He was... The whole weekend he seemed repeatedly taken aback and tremendously touched that we were all wanting to meet him I honestly get very emotional thinking about his autos, talk, and photo ops because he truly is such a beautiful person inside and out. He shook my hand before the photo and I have a habit of calling men Sir so his response to my "hello sir" was a smile and "call me Brendan, please" :). When I thanked him after the pic he gave me another very touched smile and said You're Welcome with such warmth I genuinely left getting teary-eyed All amazing experiences, thank you Showmasters I am forever grateful to you <3

    I’ve still to get round to writing up my guest/con experiences but I’ve just had the best experience from this con tonight. We took round an album we made of all the photos of my granddaughter, including the ones we had taken herself of her for the whole trip and meeting cosplayers around the hall etc. It has her Jenna Coleman DP and lanyard in it and all the other bits and bobs. She cried and gave us huge hugs saying thank you for the best weekend ever. No guest experience from this weekend tops that I’m afraid

    Final photo of the weekend is Robert Englund. This was great fun. Robert chose the pose for each person. Good to know I am someone he would rather hug than murder.

    Got to say a massive thank you to Nick G and the other crew at the Val Killer Auto queue. You were all brilliant under very difficult circumstances. You all made my con weekend. And a massive amount of respect to Val, for insisting on coming back down to do some signing when not feeling great. A true gent, such a honour to meet him.

    AWESOME I wasn't expecting them to be up this quickly! Downloaded mine already. Came out really nicely, I love the digital versions more than the prints 'cause they look so much more detailed. Props, good job on getting so many photos uploaded, that's amazing work!

    I do show my parents cause I know that they are happy for me - and they don't care where I spend my money. They themselves are like: "You don't smoke, you don't drink" and so on. But I don't show to friends - unless they want to have a look. And when they do they usually try to find something negative to say. Something like: "Wow, that person got old" or "He could have smiled more". But I don't care. I prefer to share my stuff here or somewhere else where people like me share the same passion. As some of you already mentioned - we do this for us. It's our memories, our experiences, our time and our money. I don't need to show my pics to 50 friends so that I can say: "Ha, look whom I met!". I enjoy checking out my folder all alone cause I love to remember the meetings!

    I’ve shared my photos and autos on my FB page and Instagram - they’ve been very popular posts with my friends and work colleagues. Best comments were “Did they have to call security to get you off them?” (No, I was very good - hug, photo, leave) “Couldn’t you pack Ian Somerhalder in your overnight bag and bring him home?” (Kidnapping is a criminal offence but god, I was tempted) Seeing actors at a convention feels similar to seeing famous singers/bands at a concert and people get just as excited over that so I’m not sure why some don’t get it. For concerts, you pay exorbitant prices and certainly don’t get as close as we do to the main stars. Concerts even have the cosplay equivalent as every one I’ve been too, there are people dressed up as the lead singer. It’s amusing though...you say to someone I went to see Coldplay in Cardiff “OMG, that’s brilliant.” You say I went to a film convention and hugged several well-known actors “You did what?!” So many have just never heard of it. I like to think conventions are a growing phenomenon and it’s just the way actors and actresses can connect with their public, the same way singers and musicians connect with theirs at concerts.

    I didn't know what pose to do when my turn came. Lana pulled me in close and said, "Let's make it like a Prom Picture!" BEST PHOTO OP OF THE CON! Thank you, Lana!

    I think they need to tell the crew at future cons and make it very clear that it is not their job to judge if a person is worthy of the extra help band they're wearing, this has already been done when the person recieved it, and be respectful and keep their thoughts to them selves.

    The biggest high was seeing my wife meet Ian Somerhalder. She had been looking forward to it for so long, had her pose all planned out any everything (some kind of 'almost touch' for any vampire diaries fans) and it all went perfectly for her. I sometimes feel a bit used to the whole meeting celebs thing, so it's sometimes hard to get starstruck. But seeing her so giddy was amazing. Also Hayden was such a gentleman, so polite and really took care to ensure guests got what they wanted :) As mentioned, the lack of cancellations, general manner of most guests, smooth running of all my activities and variety of stuff to enjoy was also amazing

    Dear Friends, What a crazy time the last 4 months have been! First off I want to say that we hope you are safe and well, and we want you all to stay that way. We do have some news that many of you may have worked out by now, but with the Corona Virus issue still affecting our day-to-day life we have had to take the hard decision to postpone July's London Film and Comic Con until a little later in the year, November 2020. I want to take a moment to bring you up to date on our plans with the on-going situation and also some of the things that we have had to take into consideration so we are in a position where we can deliver the events you have come to expect from us. There is a lot to go over and its important to us to be transparent and honest with you all, so please take some time to go though it. Thanks so much :-) 1). Thank you everyone for being patient and understanding as things have unfolded with the continuing fluidity of this exceptional situation. We wanted to weigh up what’s best for you all, the guests, and the hobby that we all love and enjoy, and having this time over last few weeks has been helpful to get our plan together, so thank you for that. We have been able to learn as much as we can about what we are dealing with and as such we do have a plan that will work to bring all events back online as soon as it's safe to do so and we can all enjoy them again. 2). London Film and Comic Con will now take place on 20th to 22nd November 2020. This will still be a 3 day event and will be pretty much the same as what we had planned for the summer date. There will clearly be some changes to protect peoples health and safety and we will have much more info about this and the guidelines that will be in place in the next few weeks and months, as your health and safety is our number one priority. 3). All tickets for London Film and Comic will be automatically transferred to the new November date. YALC will also be moved, but to our July 2021 London Film and Comic Con ( 23rd to 25th July 2021), and all tickets for that will also be transferred to its new date. If you cannot attend the new dates then a digital credit voucher will be issued upon request. This voucher will be good to use for any future Showmasters events up until the day after July 2021 London Film and Comic Con, (26th July 2021). At that point, should you have not used your voucher, upon request you will get a full refund. 4). Guests that have all confirmed to attend the new London Film and Comic Con date in November : Alan Ruck John Wesley Shipp Clark Gregg Robbie Coltrane Elizabeth Mitchell Steven R McQueen Andrew Gower Ashely Walters Noel Clarke Staz Nair Natalia Tena Anjili Mohindra Sacha Dhawan Misty Rosas Nick Frost Simon McBurney Mark Boone Jr Kim Coates Harry Manfredini Amanda Tapping Ben Browder Tom Skerritt Veronica Cartright Jason O Mara Mark Pellegrino Clare Kramer Karen Allen Barry Bostwick Emmy Raven-Lampman Sam Humphrey Julian Glover Julian Holloway Meat Loaf Riz Ahmed Sylvester McCoy Colin Baker Mandeep Dhillon Omid Abtahi David Ramsey - Fri only 5). There are a few names below we do not yet have the final sign off to attend the new date, but that is just a formality and it looks like they will be attending. Ming-Na Wen Aaron Paul Alice Cooper Mat Fraser Danielle Nicolet Scott Ian Jesse T Usher 6). We also have a few guests who we know cannot make the new November date and we are working on them being rescheduled to future events as follows. They are : Ernie Hudson - LFCC July 2021 TBC Henry Thomas - LFCC July 2021 Comfirmed Dee Wallace - LFCC July 2021 Confirmed Robert MacNaughten - LFCC July 2021 Confirmed David Warner - LFCC July 2021 TBC Sean Biggerstaff - London Comic Con Spring 27th & 28th Feb 2021 Confirmed 7). We also have 6 brand new guests for our November London Film and Comic Con and they are : Marc Blucas - Riley from Buffy The Vampire Slayer Anna-Louise Plowman - Osiris from Stargate SG-1 Ron Millkie - Friday 13th Sin Cara - Wrestler Road Warrior Animal - Wrestler P J Black - Wrestler 8). The above are just the start of the guest line up for London Film and Comic Con in November and now we have this new date set we can start to book in and close more amazing guests to complete the line-up . The one positive thing from the virus is that so many new guests are wanting to get out and attend our Comic Con. Productions are being bumped and put on hold and there is a back-log meaning we are now being offered amazing guests we have wanted to book for years! So watch this space as we will have a great line-up for you :-) So this is how it's going to work if you have already purchased tickets to London Film and Comic Con : 1). All tickets will be transferred to the new November date for London Film and Comic Con automatically. You do not need to do anything for this to happen. 2). If you cannot attend the new date in November then you will need to contact us on shop@showmastersevents.com and we will issue you a voucher for the amount of money you have paid. That voucher will be good to be used up until the day after July 2021 London Film and Comic Con, (26th July 2021), at which point any amount not used on the voucher will be eligible for a full refund. 3). Thank you for your support on this and because you all are working with and helping us in this crazy time, we plan to keep each of your names on file and we will find additional ways of thanking you over the next 12 months. We have great working relationships with many of film companies and we have talked at length with them with some very cool ideas in the works. So you will benefit in helping us though this crazy time as well as ensuring the next event will again be a world class Comic Con that you will play an integral part in as always. Some facts that you may not know and will help you understand why we have taken this path with vouchers for this year. 1). Because the government has not put a ban on public events all the contacts between venues and events still stand and are still binding to us. Venues are also in a tough place and while most are now starting to agree to transfer the booking to later dates, none are prepared to just return money already paid to them. So we can run an event in the future with the money we have pre-paid a venue, but we can’t get the money back. Consequently we have a lot of funds tied up with venues over the year that we cannot use right now. 2). This is also a similar case with most airlines and tickets we have booked for guests. They will only give us a refund if the flight is officially cancelled by the airline itself and that will not happen until around a week out from the date of the flight, (immediately before the show's dates). As we book around £300,000 worth of flights this also ties up a lot of funds that we again cannot get back until the show takes place. 3). The guests that are booked to attend our events we either have already part paid or fully paid in advance, which is fine normally. Also, most of these guests have agreed to attend the new dates so again this is funds that are tied up with them and not with us! So I think you can see what we are saying here. We have a lot of money that we have already paid out to venues, guests and flights that is safe but we will not be able to get it back before we run the event! Everything here is in a good way but if we were to refund everyone right now it would start to limit the planned guest line-ups and could make it harder for us to get the shows back on track as soon as we hope. There are people saying that things will not be back to normal for years, but we have a plan to buck against that with issuing the vouchers and transferring the tickets to the new date. It will make it possible for us to deliver the amazing events you know and love and get back to how they used to be, or even bigger, sooner. Your money is totally safe and in many cases it's 100% where it should be, with the guests, the venues and the flights needed to run these huge events! The issue is we have just had to move the dates. It does sound so simple when I say it like this!!!! :-) We now have all this in place and it has taken a lot of our time up to ensure we have the best system for this to work smoothly. We can now spend our time on new guests. As said before many films and TV shows are on hold and its looking like the backlog of production is going to help us with availability of guests for the next few big events so closing some of these A List guests is now our first priority and booking them in to the November show :-). I am sure all organisers find themselves in differing situations as every event is unique. We have acted to solve our challenges this way. Our events are quite different to other comic cons where we book around 500+ guests and many big names a year, and we are locked in and dependant on booking guests. So this is our fix and it may be different to other organisers who also have there own challenges to deal with and we do wish them and everyone in the hobby well in this odd time. We will implement all health and safety requirements at all our events until this virus is under control. We care and respect your safety and we all need to look after one another to get though this tough time. No one could forsee any of this last year and we are stable and sensible people and would never risk damaging the trust you have built up in us and the events we run. With such an unexpected chain of events we wanted to be honest and upfront and tell the truth and share with you all that we have planned and the challenges we had to deal with. We have been running events in the hobby for around 30 years and we are good, honest, trustworthy fans that just want to get back to putting on some of the best Comic Cons in the world. With your help and trust we will get back on track very soon. We really do miss you all and it has left a big emptiness with the entire team here. Fandom is a very powerful thing and together we will once again create many amazing new memories that will last a life time. Thank you, friends, and we will see you soon. Take care and stay safe!

    Well, here it is. And @R4wly97 ... Yes, Toy Story, true. Thank You @Broo Yes, this is the really big one for me. Been a fan since 1989. Ok, I did not get it in person but I have met her twice at concerts back in 1994 and 2004 but missed out on getting something signed, at least got a moment to exchange words. She isnt so big on signing things but it happens. Took me a bit over a month to get it. Now I am planning to hopefully see her live again next year, probably in Canada.

    Just want to say thank you for the time taken to post on here. This year we had a bigger team then ever shipping and all show images were at the post office by close of play friday and send ins close of play saturday. The post office did say they were a good 2 days behind us as we were to quick for them lol. Thats over 2000 pracels/envelopes and 3000 autographs. The team at the event this year was bigger then ever and the feedback coming back via emails is very positive. We are human and the odd mistake will happen from time to time and each year we push to make that number 0. When the first 2 posts above were made I still had the team with me working and you put some great smiles on faces saying your items had arrived less then a week of the show ending (also bare in mind, we all travel back from the show on the monday so we don't start until the tuesday) Thank you for the support Jason G

    We went to this comic con to get Heydon Christensen and Ian McDiarmid, taking our little boy who’s just four months old. By 1400 it was looking like we wouldn’t get either! We had ticket 190 for HC and 297 for IM. At 1600 we popped to see how the HC queue was going and we were allowed to jump in the queue with ticket 190 even though they were only calling upto 160. When in that queue my partner nipped to see how the queue for IM was doing; they were only calling up to about 100! Got chatting to some amazing guy in the HC queue and we said we were a bit disappointed as the IM autograph we wanted was actually for our little chap... he only went and pulled out ticket 28 for IM and handed it to us! WHAT THE HELL!! HC wrote an amazing quote on our picture to match our lads babygrow despite the crew member saying he wasn’t writing anything or doing personalisation , as did IM who said “I see a young apprentice in you” to our little one :) It was all just so awesome and well worth the sweat... man it was hot in there!!!!

    Words well said @EllaBlair (If anything a little annoyed you beat me to it!!). Thank you Showmasters for bringing such a fabulous guest to us this weekend. I always thought meeting one of my idols would be memorable. He was so welcoming and gracious with his time, he exceeded my expectations by some margin. A truly wonderful human spirit. Hope he enjoys his first convention experience as much as we have seeing him. Anything you can do to convince him to return for his second would be hugely appreciated!* *Except by my bank manager, just possibly...

    Just wanted to express how wonderful all the red and blue shirts have been over the past couple of days. The organisation at the photo shoots was top notch, and I saw them deal with a difficult situation with patience and a cool head. Well done to them all, and thank you for making these shows possible.

    Lovely afternoon spent with some close friends (fellow Whovians) who have recently had a baby girl. I really had to buy this when I saw it. Start as you mean to go on I say. I may be biased but she looks completely adorable wearing it. They are having a naming ceremony in January. I am even more thrilled that they've asked me to be her Fairly Ungodly Mother. As none of us are religious they liked this alternative name for Godmother - they say it suits me! Looking forward to taking her to her first con when she is older.

    I take no offence to your question @dogsoldierspoon! I find it great that you are seeking information about disabilities so you can better your understanding. There should be more people like you in the world! I have a disability that have a lot of misinformation and making sure that medical professionals as well as people who are in the lives of people with this disability are educated is very important. It was not like you went up in someone's face and asked "What the spam is wrong with you?".

    Yesterday while waiting for Matthew Lillard at booth B, i sat down on the floor just outside of it and when I went to get up, my knee went, causing me to fall and a few people made sure I was okay and got me a chair to sit on after helping me up. I forgot to get names, but if the crew members and attendees are here, thank you very much for your help. I felt very very silly for falling the way I did but you all helped and I'm very grateful this was about 6pm.
