  1. Oh wow! Massive fan of Farscape, so this is an incredible announcement! Eeep! I can just hear D'argo shouting Crichtooooon!
  2. Thanks! That's good to know. I think I prefer the LFCC way as you don't know who you might manage to get on a given day, whereas at LFCC if you're at the point where you can see the pictures and paying then you're getting that autograph. But I shall just have to think carefully about who I want and just hope to get them. If not, then I have a picture of them and can always take that with me if the guest ever returns. Or, as you say, bring my own prints. Not sure where to get good prints before the event though, as I do like the selection that is usually on offer at LFCC (I assume DST will be
  3. I'm toying with going to DST for the first time too this year (I love LFCC and it would be great to go to a Star Trek specific event!) so this is really helpful, thank you. I noticed one of the differences mentioned above between DST and LFCC is that you have to buy the photos before getting an autograph. Is there one section where you go and all the photos are there for you to pick the ones you want, or are they near the queue for that particular guest, but the only difference is that you have to buy them first? And what sort of price are the photos to get signed? As obviously the cost o
  4. I suppose it really depends upon what you want to do and what you'll be comfortable doing. I started out doing one day but now I usually do the whole weekend, as I can then spend different days on specific things. Friday is my day of looking round the stalls and getting my bearings, as it is the quietest day and am able to chat and relax a bit more. If there are guests who I want to meet who are doing the Friday then I try for them that day too, as that way if I don't get them I still have Saturday and Sunday (depending upon which days they are attending) but I can usually get a Friday guest o
  5. Both those pencil cases sound awesome! Aw, I want both of those now!
  6. Once again the crew were amazing. I love that you often see the same people year on year returning to crew the events and they are always fun, enthusiastic and really helpful (and often very complimentary of outfits!). Massive thanks to them for spending the weekend on their feet, dealing with hundred and hundreds of people with different queries and needs, often in very hot conditions too. I genuinely think you're awesome and do an amazing job. Unfortunately, I did encounter quite a few rude con=goers over the weekend who were either just rude, or were tired and frustrated and were taking it
  7. I'm sorry that some of you seem to have had some issues with talks as a gold pass holder. I wasn't a gold this year, but was told for a couple of the free talks I attended that I couldn't sit in the front two lines because they were reserved for gold only. It might have been a mistake on the talk you went to, and that's a shame, as obviously you should have priority seating for a free talk. But for the talks I went to they seemed to have it sorted and were even checking to make sure the people sitting in the front two rows were gold and moved a few people on who weren't.
  8. I loved my DP gifts - the quote on the wallet for Gina Torres made me laugh - "We live in a spaceship dear" as I had only just watched that episode of Firefly and it will make me think of that particular section of the episode. I liked the USB stick for Christopher Eccleston too; "Lots of planets have a north" They are almost too nice to use! Like others have mentioned, I was fully expecting to get another mug or a print, so it was a pleasant surprise to get these. I see there are several different ones mentioned on here - does anyone know what the ones that haven't been mentioned were?
  9. What a weekend! It's so lovely to hear about everyone's experiences - it sounds like most were really positive, which is fantastic. I know there is that old saying about not meeting your heroes, so it's nice that so many stories here prove that wrong. I attended all three days, with Saturday being my busiest day (unsurprisingly) and Sunday was my amazing Firefly day. Ok, time for my fangirl moments... Friday My first guest of the day was David Morrissey - what a lovely man! I went to get an autograph (thankfully the line was pretty short at that time) and was able to chat a bit
  10. I'll confess that he was on the top of my 'if one of my primary guests cancels then I can afford him' pile (I can only afford a few and so then have to prioritise) but after such a brilliant talk on Saturday just had to meet him. His talk was brilliant and he seems very relaxed doing this sort of thing (contrary to what he said in his talk!) and it was a pleasure to meet him. Now I need to go and see whether my bank is willing to accept a kidney as part payment... Definitely no regrets though!
  11. The schedule looks great so far! And I am loving the amount of free talks there appear to be this year - there are some really good ones! I can't wait to see the map once it is ready to see the layout for all this, as it looks like it's going to be a good way of getting it all done. Also, oooh, look at the pretty colours...
  12. That's such a great picture! Definitely jealous of the hug, but still absolutely thrilled I got a photo with him at all. I would love him to come back and do another one, as he seemed so lovely.
  13. The preliminary schedule is looking really good so far! I'm really impressed with some of the changes that have been made too, as I think that's going to make it much easier around the photo areas. And it's great that the prop photos are open for longer, as I usually miss doing a prop photo because I run out of time. There are a lot of talks I want to go to as well. Not long to go now...
