    As if this moment it’s not advertised on the excel website :( it’s the 1st time I intended to do the whole weekend not just 1 day, luckily I only reserved premier inn and not paid upfront, 

    however I mean this in total respect, with every other con now being cancelled and rearranged to 2021 and offering ticket exchange or refund of entry and photo money I think it’s time with less than 2 months before the show and infections rising again, 

    the government putting restrictions in place and also that the excel is a nightingale hospital 

    and also lots of people are in financial need being furloughed out

    this really needs addressing as soon as possible for people to gauge the option available 

    Only going based off what I have seen posted in explanation from other organisers, but it's not as simple as SM just saying 'lets cancel it, OK done'   They have contracts with cancellation penalties in play with guests, venue's suppliers ect, so they can't just call it all off, all the contracts have to be legally voided or they will have penalties to pay if they are the ones to cancel.

    Hopefully it won't be long until we get an update on both upcoming events.

    Anyone know is this event still going ahead with COVID ? I asked an organiser on FB and was told it was but still not buying tickets until I’m sure...

    We can't tell you anything that the official response hasn't really.  If they said it's still going ahead, then it is until it isn't.  Common sense would say that with numbers rising any big inside event isn't going to happen, but until the organisers are ready to update us, they can only stick to the current official line.

    Well let's hope so, although technically the restriction is on 'social gatherings' (my least favourite kind of gathering), and technically LFCC could be deemed not a 'social gathering' but a 'marketplace', so technically blahblahblah.

    Yeah, like you said, it's almost certainly not happening. I think SM are just waiting for something official that they can use as a reason 'postponing' i.e. for insurance, cancelling venue / guests, other reasons we don't know about.

    Of course, this Government don't seem keen to say something like 'nothing over 5000 until next year', like some other countries have said. I blame football, who are desperate to get crowds back. There's still supposed to be a rugby match at Twickenham next month with 20,000 supporters.

    I've seen other events say 'we are going ahead because we are a market place and not a social gathering' so some are trying that.

    This may go the same way as a certain Stateside con, as a virtual event.

    2 minute one-on-one video chat with guests.

    Autographs

    Talks

    etc

    Probably shouldn’t post this, but hey....it may give the organisers some ideas.

    I'm surprised SM haven't done any private signings at the least.

    MULAN (2020)

    Asian-lead films made in the West for mainstream mass consumption are rare so I really want this to be a commercial hit but Disney put-off a lot of potential paying viewers by making it so expensive on Disney+.

    From what I've read it will be on normal Disney + in a couple of months, it's just pay per view now.

    My  'Build Your Own'  TARDIS has arrived. This could all go horribly wrong.

    Must admit I wasn't expecting it to be quite so small. Maybe it's bigger on the inside. 

    If I learned anything from doing the Dalek it's look ahead before you do anything.  You literally only get a bend or 2 before it'll snap so you really don't want to be having to bend bits more than a couple of times.  So look at the piece, and what shape you need to bend each corner into, plan what tool you will use so you can hopefully do it in one go, and don't faff wiggling it back and forth.

    Looking at your Facebook, it does look to be set to private. I’ve never tried posting from there to here though so you probably know more than me! If it does work then those privacy settings seem pretty useless to me!

    I can actually test it now.  I've copied this from my fbook page, but clicking on the image here doesn't take me to facebook.

    Image may contain: screen, text that says "MARVEL AVARERS STUDIOS ANDGAME F NDGA M UK FAN EVENT 10.4.19"

    I would imagine you need to have your privacy settings for the picture set to public as well

    You're better than me with all that, I think my account is set to private and I can put my pictures on here.....but I'm probably wrong and it's actually all public :lol:....

    Just a general question how do I upload a photo on my desktop to here..Thanks

    Facebook also works, if you have the picture on your account there you can just copy it and paste here and that should work as well

    Finally managed to track down a bottle of Aaron Paul's and Brian Cranston's mezcal in the uk. Hopefully all things being well, can get him to sign it.

    I didn't know such a thing existed, but that is cool.

    Alternatively there may be a perspex screen between you and guest which would not be visible on the actual photo. 

    Well, I will just add a caution to this bit as it depends on how well it's done.  I've seen photo's of a shoot at a recent US con that had a screen and it was very visible.  But as PCF says unfortunately we don't know.  Showmasters did say they had a plan for the shoot which they would test run and would share with us but that hasn't happened.  Unfortunately we will only know when they make an official statement about it, and they aren't going to comment unless it's in an official statement.
