  1. I agree, although natural immunity probably won't last too long with all the mutations, and there's a risk of complications if you get ill, so I'm still going to wear a mask to try and avoid it. Wearing a mask is just a mild inconvenience, not like lockdown (never want to go back to that). That's why I'm going to use FFP2 masks, the ones that offer the highest protection. And fingers crossed! I know that doesn't guarantee anything, but anything I can do to minimize the risk I will do.
  2. Very disappointed about Graham. Luckily for me there are still a lot of guests to see. Especially with the many Star Trek actors (I only got into Star Trek in recent years, so my Star Trek autograph library is still far from complete). But I know people who are very disappointed as they are left with basically no one they need/are interested in.
  3. I think the forums are largely abandoned, and all the action has moved to Facebook. We used to have an FAQ for new attendees, now there is nothing. It's a shame.
  4. Glad to hear some people will be wearing masks, and I won't be the only one. I have a Scotland holiday planned directly after LFCC, so if I get covid it will f- up those plans even if it is a mild case. So I'm going to be as careful as possible, and hopefully I won't get it.
  5. Yeah, I got "new" tickets too. Print and bring the "new" ones.
  6. Man, just 18 days! Hadn't realised it was so close!
  7. Yeah, if there's going to be any more paid talks they should announce them already. Although maybe this is because the bulk of the talks will be free this year
  8. If the actors you plan to see a low-priced, like 25 or less, I think you'll be OK getting into LFCC late. Prices in that range tend to be open queue (no VTs), especially on the last day. Otherwise if you're planning on seeing someone who will be popular and they have a Diamond Pass, maybe you should consider getting one.
  9. Great guest... not so great price. I bet this is the time she doesn't cancel, now that she's so expensive I can't afford her.
  10. Anyone from Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Outlander, The Expanse.
  11. I agree. I'm just waiting for the announcement to make it official.
  12. Sorry to hear that. Good luck with the transplant, hope they find a compatible donor quickly and it all goes well for you. xxx
  13. Personally I think if things in November are still as they are now, LFCC November will also be cancelled/postponed. Everyone's just hoping that by then the pandemic will have petered out or there'll be a vaccine.
  14. OK, question: is there a cutoff date for when you can request the voucher, if you can't attend in November? I won't know for sure until closer to the date, so should I ask for a voucher now or wait until, say, October, and ask for the voucher then if it turns out I can't attend? Will I still be able to ask for the voucher in October?
  15. Sad, but expected. I think I would like to attend the November event, and plane tickets will probably be cheaper, but there's the issue of a potential second wave of COVID-19 in autumn. So I will keep my fingers crossed and wait and see, hopefully the November event will take place and I will be able to attend. So I won't request a voucher just yet.
  16. So I was reading this article about cosplayers being affected by con cancellations, and it says the following: "The past two months have felt like an endless parade of cancellations, along with demands from the public to cancel even sooner seemingly ignored until the last minute. But there is a reason. As explained by law firm Akerman, most big contracts (like the ones between cons and convention centers) will include what’s called a Force Majeure clause. This “excuses one or both parties’ performance obligations when circumstances arise which are beyond the parties’ control,” and can include natural disasters, acts of government authority, and pandemics. But invoking it is a lengthy process, and success depends on the language in the contract and how it’s applied. In addition, some states like New York, California, and Florida have special guidelines of their own that can stretch things out further." So this probably explains why there hasn't been a cancellation announcement yet.

  18. Great guest! Though he's a bit on the expensive side. However this year is looking to not have many guests for me, so I think I can afford one expensive guest. Currently it's between Robbie Coltrane and Alice Cooper.
  19. Cast of The Expanse Sonequa Martin-Green Doug Jones Pedro Pascal Angela Basset Neil Patrick Harris Anyone from Buffy/Angel/Firefly EDIT: Anyone from DS9 and BSG
  20. I didn't meet Jason Isaacs, but I went to his talk and he was great! If I had not been able to get Ian McDiarmid's autograph on Saturday, I would have gone for Jason on Sunday. He is definitely at the top of my list for future events!
  21. Friday is the quietest day, but some guests may not be attending on Friday. So it depends who you want to see. Sunday is the 2nd quietest, and it can be quite easy with autographs as most people have got their autos on the 2 previous days so it is easier to see guests. I think it is definitely worth coming for a 2nd day, or possibly all 3. You'll have to look at which guests attend on which day and decide. When I started attending, I only attended Saturday and Sunday. Then I decided to do all 3 days as that would make it more relaxed, with more time to do things, and it was the right decision.
  22. Great read! It was nice meeting you and getting introduced to all the other people! Till next year!
