    London Comic Con Spring for 2019!

    I really don't want to attend yet another event due to costs, although the location at least means I save on hotel bills. I'm already up to my ears in cons/signing events next year, though. *sigh*

    Are you missing the Con?

    I'm so relieved about these dates. My friends had sent me a Save the Date card for their July wedding a week or so ago and I was dreading having to say, "Ummmm, I'm afraid the LFCC is that weekend..." *cough* I love them dearly, but come on! Needs must and all that.

    Are you missing the Con?

    Do I miss getting up at a horrendously early hour each day, mainlining painkillers so I can keep going, getting horribly hot and sweaty at times, and worrying whether I'll get everything I want done? Well, no. I'm glad something of this scale happens to me just once a year! But the memories of my encounters there are absolutely priceless. I'm fondly remembering hanging out with friends and striking up random connections in the many and varied queues. And of course looking at my photos and autos and grinning like an idiot.

    Autographs still wet.

    My Julian Glover auto was still a bit damp when I put it in the auto holder, despite me having fanned it for a while beforehand to dry it. I didn't notice until I got it home and went to take it out to scan it in. The others were fine. As far as I know, everyone was using Sharpies, so perhaps I was a little premature. Never heard of an auto staying wet this long, though.

    Special Assistance

    Oh, yes. I have a few friends with disabilities, some of which are visible, some of which are not. One is a US friend with fibromyalgia. She loves me showing her around London when she comes to visit, but gets so exhausted she has to use a wheelchair a lot these days, and it really is an eye-opener seeing how far you can (or rather, can't) get with one. It is gradually getting better, mind, but there's a way to go.

    Christopher Eccleston Appreciation

    It was wonderful to finally meet him! So nice and very polite. Lovely warm handshake. He also looked great with his red T-shirt setting off his tan. (Yesss, I was swooning a bit. ) I hope he felt comfortable enough to come back to a future event sometime.

    Any news about Paige, please? Did she get back OK? It was lovely meeting her on Saturday and I was saddened to hear she'd fallen ill.
  12. Sorry, yes, the cards with VQ details/guest status have been around for a fair while, but this is the first time I remember seeing them so high up so it was easier to see the details from a distance (although it's possible I'm being senile on that score too ). And agree, the photoshoot schedules seemed to be in better (and more?) locations - I found it really easy getting close to double-check stuff.
  13. The signage was better this year. I appreciated the use of poles at the front of the areas for signers with VQT systems in place, which had a laminated card hanging from the top with details of the VQT number or whether said guest had gone for a shoot/break (often with estimated return times), so you could see it over peoples' heads. I'm sure that was new as I don't recall seeing that last year. The card with the price was lower down, but you could see that once you knew to join the queue and got closer. Having the photoshoot schedules printed out in various locations was excellent (I think that started last year, so good to see this continue). But yes, photo areas were still a bit problematic at times, meaning one had to wriggle through the throng to ask a crew member what was happening. It's getting better, but I agree that the area letter needs to be higher - I was sure I was waiting at E at one point before realizing it was F. So that and having something on which to write guest names and batch numbers that one can hold high above the crowds would be excellent. Someone (not sure if it was a crew member or not) was doing that in G or thereabouts and it meant I could see what was happening without having to fight my way closer.

    Step counts?

    Heee, you big geek. My feet estimate that I did somewhere in the region of 20K today.
