    Latest Guest Announcement - CLARK GREGG

    Gaahhhhhh! I did not want to come to this event! OK, SM, I give in.

    Price of Diamond Passes

    That's the thing. You have to decide for yourself whether it's worth the extra cost. And sometimes, oh, yes, it is.

    Guests you missed this year

    Hayden Christensen. I really wanted to meet him, but he would have taken me well over my budget. *sigh*

    Showing friends and family

    I share mine with family and friends. My parents recognize several guests I've met (my Dad in particular as he's a pretty big geek himself), and my other half and friends are mostly geeks too (a lot of them go to cons/signing events anyway, and others still get it, even if they wouldn't fork out for a guest themselves). I've never had anyone disparage my collecting habits.

    Iron Fist cast

    I'd met Jessica and Finn before for GoT, but wanted to show them all some love for Iron Fist as well, so got autos from all three, plus the group shot (the latter is one of my favourites from the weekend as I actually managed to ask for a pose and we're all grinning in it!). Very glad I met them again. The talk was fun too.

    Gold pass 2019 feedback

    On the whole, the GP worked well for me, and I was waved through quickly once I got to entry area H. The only small niggle was the lumping together of collection of DPs for last name S-Z in with the collection for GP queue, so there was a big queue for those, while the DP collections for last names A-H had hardly anyone in it (at least when I went to that queue for my DPs having got my GP, that bit was quick). That was on Friday (glad I decided to go on that day when it was relatively quiet!), so not sure if that was tweaked for the Sat/Sun.

    Crew Appreciation

    If that was Fri and/or Sat, that would have been Phil. He does do a marvellous job organizing the photoshoot queues, which is why he often ends up in those areas! Just to add my own appreciation for all the crew. My particular sympathies go to those who were working in the pits of hell (aka the main guest signing area - I was absolutely melting in there, but at least I could escape from time to time), but as usual, everyone I met was friendly and helpful.

    Guest Experiences From The Weekend

    All my guest meets were very pleasant (loads of personalization I hadn't expected!), although big shout-outs have to go to the following: The Iron Fist group - they were cracking me up in their photoshoot with the stuff they were saying (and of course they were happy to do poses). I'd met Jessica and Finn before and liked them a lot, so was very happy they were working together in Iron Fist, ergo extremely peeved that it was cancelled, so wanted to show them some love for that. Sacha was really nice too. Tom Ellis - I was NOT going for a hug in the Lucifer Wings shoot, honest, but it looked like so much fun, so I just asked and he said, "Bring it in," and I love the result - very dramatic with the white wings and black background. I wasn't expecting anything from Ian Somerhalder, but he hugged me in the photoshoot, which was adorable. I adore The Mummy and The Mummy Returns so meeting Brendan Fraser was such a treat, and his voice! I managed not to drool, but it was a close thing... Ian Whyte obligingly went back-to-back with me for our photoshoot. He's 7'1"; I'm 5'4". You can imagine what that looked like. I only wish the photographer had taken the photo portrait-style, but I still love it. Peter Serafinowicz! He recognized me from the auto session when he walked into the photoshoot and gave me a thumbs-up (always nice to be remembered), and he was doing some great poses. Ours included (I'd bought a Sunday shot as I thought Friday's was going to be refunded, found that Fri/Sun's were going to be honoured and thought, "Bugger", but went for it, and the second involved your basic heroic bicep flex, except that he changed position at the last moment to pretend to feel up my arm muscles and I was just wetting myself). Definitely my favourite guest of the weekend.

    Latest Guest Announcement - IAN SOMERHALDER

    He was rather adorable. I was going for a standard vanilla pose and he put his arms around me, so I froze thinking a) I'm WAY too old to be hugging him (wrong: he's actually only eight years younger than I, but doesn't look it, dammit), and b) the camera's about to go off, must stay in position. Ack! Still, it was very nice.

    Diamond Pass Gifts = good

    Agreed - I was pleasantly surprised by the gifts this year (Zachary's had some great headphones - my other half road-tested them last night and I couldn't hear a thing), and I'll definitely be using the Firefly wallet that came with Gina's DP.

    Day Change Peter Serafinowicz

    So glad I ended up buying two photoshoots in the end - they are probably going to be my favourites of the whole event! Had such a laugh.

    Day Change Peter Serafinowicz

    When I read elsewhere that Fri tickets were being refunded and looked on Eventbrite to get a Saturday ticket, there weren't any, so bought a Sunday one. And now I've seen this. Ooooops! Eh, maybe I'll do two poses...

    Rutger Hauer has passed away

    One of my favourite actors - I was so happy to meet him at LFCC in 2016, even if he did reduce me to a dribbling idiot when he spoke to me in the photoshoot...
