  1. Cosplay

    Would love to go as Sloth from The Goonies if I get the chance, though not sure if I'll get the time to get everything I need for it. Good possibility I will be dressed as a generic fanboy (myself) this year.
  2. Sadly as he was already announced for a few events in one go I would suggest that it is unlikely, not impossible but unlikely. How about Corey Feldman? he said on Twitter that he would do it! :) yip ... Can also confirm that Corey would love to come to Glasgow.... Ideal replacement for Sean Astin Sean hasn't cancelled, has he? I think 8ball was meaning a replacement for London and an addition to Glasgow.
  3. Photoshoots

    Yeah these come under prop shoots or photo opportunities rather than photoshoot persay (though they do typically happen around the same area, I've yet to see any cars or anything else that might take up lots of space though we do get some cool stuff to make a great looking photo.
  4. Two Goonies now...please please please try getting a few more of the guys and gals for a Glasgow reunion, you can do it - Never say Die!
  5. So who are you planning on meeting?

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I was here last. Apologies to anyone who i had as friends on Facebook though I'm no longer using the site, I'm more active on Twitter nowadays. Just to also update anyone not in on the loop, my wife Maggie is currently expecting a baby (just another month to go) so this is the main reason I haven't been online as much lately. We are both hoping to make this convention as there's a quite a few we both really want to meet. Top of the list for me is Ray Park, and not just for Darth Maul but most his other roles people forget he's in too like Toad in the original X-Men, The Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow as well as Edgar in Heroes and many others. Carl Weathers is totally up there too, definitely need to get something Predator related signed, though want to ask him a Rocky related question too. Sean Aston, Ke Huy Quan, and James Masters are all must meets too.

  7. Cosplay/Masquerade

    Another Cosplay Music Video this time filmed on both days.
  8. Guest Suggestions 2016

    More Harry Potter guests, 2015 was sadly lacking in that department.
  9. Harry Potter: The End of Days

    Absolutely fantastic idea, this has so much potential to it, you could add so many different formats to have a full list of guests even if it's not all main stars it would still be incredible. As suggested even beyond the many stars that have appeared in the series, I think almost any hard core Potter fan would love to meet the people behind the scenes, especially the fx department who brought so many different creatures to life as well as create the backdrops that made the magical world feel so real. And thinking away from the actual movie franchise, I obviously began life as a book so you could bring in the artists who created the fantastic covers as well as the different scenes in the Pottermore website and why not bring in an audiobook reader too. Also next year will begin the theatre production of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, so why not bring in some of the talent who worked on that. Another possibility could be for actual props, set pieces and maybe even a vehicle or two to be put on display. The arena (or hall) could be decorated to look like Hogwarts as well as a few other choice locations in the wizarding world and of course it wouldn't be complete without some of the foods, sweets and drinks made famous in the books. This is the kind of event if done right would bring in a huge crowd and could potentially be ShowMasters greatest convention yet. Though only if done correctly, us Potterheads expect greatness from our fandom and purely relying on a few big guests to make the show wouldn't cut it. If ShowMasters goes for this, they should bring their A game to ensure every little detail is thought through I would happily go to this even if it's an event style convention which I typically avoid, for Harry Potter I would definitely go without doubt.
  10. Cosplay

    I've made a dedicated post for photos and videos of peoples personal experience as well as one of the masquerade and a music video done on the Sunday, still hunting out any for Saturday too though I'll post as soon as I do unless someone else uploads one.

  12. Time For A Change

    This event we have is hugely popular so why are so many keen to change it? I say keep it as it is and where it is and you could expand in one of two possibilities: 1. Create another similar event at a different time of the year. I know this was tried before some time ago and was a dismal failure though obviously the popularity of the event is far greater than it's ever been, now is a good time when so many are looking for more from this event. 2. Have a second larger event as well as this event. I think this option is the best choice as it gives a best of both worlds choice for people who might like to keep to one event over the other and plenty I'm.sure who'll happily attend both.
  13. Not really the forum for next year can get posted up anytime after the previous years con is done really, there doesn't need to be any guest announcements yet, we can always do a pretty good job of filling these up with loads of different discussions, have to say I always think it's great that for a smaller convention we have one of the biggest communities.
  14. Event Dates Swap Around Suggestion

    Yep that's exactly what I'm saying, best of both worlds. I like that you can chat for longer in this event with guests, you don't get that with bigger conventions.
  15. Cosplay

    Have to say I was totally blown away at the high quality of cosplays on display this year. I have a bad habit of thinking up great ideas but leaving it too late, so I am making a big effort to up my game and already have a epic idea that's totally different to anything I've done before, looking forward to next year already!
