  1. One of the comic book guests; Etienne made this video on his YouTube channel from the Saturday promoting his work Beats of War as well as another look at some of the masquerade. Super cool and very talented guy.
  2. Hey there Bryan, nice to see you on here again. Hopefully you make it to next years event.
  3. Here a video of the Masquerade from Saturday
  4. Bonus points for creativity to the guy that dressed up as “The Smiler” (ride at Alton Towers), loads of effort made with home made costumes and such so surprised that there was no chat about plans etc but never mind.
  5. So finally it happened, the con was back after lockdown. After passing on the event the last few times beforehand it felt like an age that I hadn’t been to the convention so was pretty keen to get to this, I went into the area first thing hoping that with the extra time I would able to navigate all the stalls. So my first impressions walking in were slightly…underwhelming though I made the most of what was there which was still a good selection though I would say perhaps not enough variety between vendors. But still I managed to get a pretty decent haul all the same. However I was really impressed with the turnout, it was great to see so many as the doors opened up for standard tickets so even though it felt like the arena was a bit barebones this year it filled up in no time. I can understand that due to covid that both vendors and organisers were keeping things pretty basic though I do hope that now things are returning to relative normality that more effort is put into this event for next year. The talks as well were a bit all over the place and I’m not sure what they’ve done with the stage setup, this needs to open out a bit more. Overall I had a great time and I do appreciate that efforts that were made to get this convention back, it was made better thanks to the community and company I was with, though I normally stay most the day I didn’t feel so inclined this time. I hope (not for the first time) that the turnout was enough to motivate the organisers to make more of a statement for the Glasgow event, I realise their priority is to the bigger shows though this show has potential to be much more with a bit more care and attention paid towards it. Anyway, glad to be back at the event and already looking forward to next year, chances are I will go to a bigger show too though I still like to see my local convention getting the love it deserves. Feel free to share your experiences, if nobody else does I’ll post up any videos made during the show.
  6. Yeah its just a QR code that needs to be scanned so doesn't really need to be a paper copy, i have the pdf downloaded onto my mobile

    DUNE

    And? You posted all this with no reaction to what you thought about it once you saw it
  8. Much appreciated, seems to be very little hype for this year’s event.
  9. They're not announced though guests are still indicated as being cancelled, so far this one isn't so you can assume he will still be attending.
  10. So now i finally have the correct year i’m super pumped about being able to attend my local comic con again though i would love to cosplay money is quite tight due to a change of job and the dreaded C word…i may break out the old Zombie cosplay once again as thats always a cheap costume to make. Currently thinking a member of the Skull Gang from The Batman. What are your plans? Edit: Almost 50 views and no responses? Come on guys!
  11. Hmm…would have been nice to update their announcement post though i guess the date in the title is a big clue. I feel dumb, i even have time off for this and everything lol Blaah. Back to being depressed again i guess.
  12. Wait…i thought it was this year? Why/when did it get postponed again??
  13. Ten days to go to finally be back. Looking forward to finding some bargains at the stalls, listening to a few of the talks, checking out the cool prop display, watching the cosplay parade and generally being able to geek out again. Edit: Are all things i would have said if it was actually this year..doh
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. https://www.facebook.com/events/445716342233653/ A great selection of photos on here to browse through.
  20. Another Cosplay Music Video this time filmed on both days.
  21. More Harry Potter guests, 2015 was sadly lacking in that department.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Sunday 23rd Masquerade Cosplay Music Video (filmed on the Sunday)
