    LFCC 2018: Highs and Lows

    Highs The fantastic guests I met, they were all lovely. I won't go into too much detail here as I already have in other threads but will just reiterate that SM got some great guests for the event that genuinely seemed to enjoy meeting their fans. The MVP's being Tom Welling, Rose McIver and Rahul Kohli who as far as I could tell took time to speak to everyone that went to get their autographs. The amazing crew who did so well under what must have been a lot of pressure at times! All of the crew members I spoke to were great, special shout outs to the lady running Rose McIver's autograph queue who was friendly and informative. The guy running photo area C was brilliant, explained to everyone clearly what was happening and had a sense of humour, and the lady on photo area E who kindly helped me out when I had a clash. Sorry I didn't catch anyone's names but thank you to you all! The layout was great, photo shoot areas were spaced out well and there was plenty of room to move around on the ground floor to browse the stalls. The queue for entry in the morning was run very well, didn't take long to get into the building at all which I was concerned about as I couldn't get there until after 9. Diamond pass collection was also quick and easy. Lows As many have mentioned here already, the photo areas could really do with some microphones for the crew and/or large whiteboards to write the current batch numbers that have been called. I felt terrible for the crew that were shouting to get the information across but I still couldn't hear them as there were so many people in front of me which made the areas very noisy. The heat! Not something SM have control over I know but the air conditioning was lacking in some areas and as someone who doesn't deal well with the heat I was a little uncomfortable at times. Was lucky I bought my hand held fan with me! A few of the 'smaller' photo shoots let everyone queue at once rather than calling batch numbers which I was a little peeved about as I had batch 1 or 2 but ended up right near the back of the queue and there was no way all those people in front of me had the same or a lower batch than I did. Please call all photo shoots in batch order even for guests with a 20-30 minute slot, it really helps especially if people have a potential clash. My day overall was brilliant though and I want to thank SM again for an amazing show. I will defintely be back next year!

    Guest interactions.

    I had some wonderful interactions with the guests I met, I couldn't be happier with them. I had a diamond pass for Tom Welling as I've been a fan of his for such a long time and always hoped he's attend a con someday. When I told him this he seemed genuinely humbled and was really kind to me. We had a brief chat about his trip and he thanked me for coming and shook my hand. I was on cloud nine after that. He couldn't have been nicer. When I met him again later for the photoshoot he remembered me and asked how I was doing. The photo came out great, I look like the cat that got the cream in it and his smile is something else! Think I have a girl crush on Rose McIver now, she was so sweet. I was waiting in her auto queue for a while as she was taking time to chat to everyone. It was totally worth it though as I had a brilliant chat with her. When I got to her she shook my hand and said "Hi, I'm Rose" which is just adorable. We then talked about izombie and her time at the con, it was a fantastic experience. And she even complemented me on my blouse and remembered me later in the photoshoot. She was a perfect guest for an event like this! Rahul Kohli was also lovely, I told him how much I like his character in izombie and how I think he's the funniest person on twitter. We talked for a while about some of his recent tweets and about izombie too. He's such a funny guy but also really down to earth and kind. He also remembered me later at his photoshoot. Zachary Levi was lovely, I only met him for a photo but it was a really nice experience. He said hi and asked me how I was and thanked me after the photo was taken.(and I got a hug in the photo) Wish I could've got his autograph but unfortunately I ran out of funds, hope he comes back in the future! Jason Momoa seems so cool, and he looks amazing! I only met him very briefly for a photo and I was batch 19 of 20 and the shoot overran so it was a bit rushed. He still said hi to me though and when I thanked him after our photo was taken he smiled at me and gave me a nod which was nice.

    Only going Sunday this year. Have a Tom Welling diamond pass so will be getting an auto and photo with him. I've also booked photo ops with Rahul Kohli and Rose McIver and plan on getting their autos too. Also planning on booking a photo op with Jason Momoa and possibly Sam Neil too providing they don't sell out before pay day on Wednesday!

    Latest Guest Announcement - ROSE MCIVER

    Awesome guest, thank you SM! Will definately book a photo op with her when I get paid again. Will most likely get her autograph too. Would love to see some more izombie guests to keep her company if possible. Rahul Kohli and Robert Buckley would be brilliant guests.

    Latest Guest Announcement - TOM WELLING

    How much have people spent this year?

    I got 7 photoshoots and 4 autographs, including travel, a few funko pops I bought and food expenses I spent just shy of £700. Booked the photoshoots over the last 5 months though so managed to spread the cost which helped. Still more than I thought before I added it all up!

    Weekend Highlights!

    Meeting Benedict Cumberbatch, I wasn't expecting much of an interaction with him as I only had a photo with him but he shook my hand, said good morning and nice to meet you. Then thanked me and told me to have a great day. He was a complete gent and I was very impressed with how he took a moment to speak to everyone even though he was so busy, he must've taken 1000's of photos each day and still managed to make it a special moment for everyone. Getting a hug from Finn Jones in the photo shoot. Meeting Alyson Hannigan who was so sweet, I don't know why but I thought she might be a bit quiet but she seemed genuinely happy to be there and also took the time to speak to everyone and shake hands. Meeting Alexis Denisof and chatting to him about Angel when I got his autograph, he was really friendly and was taking lots of time to speak to everyone. It meant his queue moved slowly but it was worth the wait! Speaking to Tom Wilson, getting his autograph on my Back to the Future boxset and his response to me asking him how many people had asked him to call them a butthead. Which was "Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here!" Really didn't expect him to be so funny and he was really kind and chatty too. Wish I had got a photo with him, please bring him back to another event Showmasters!

    Michael Emerson Appreciation Thread

    I thought Michael was a great guest. He was so kind and humble. I met him first for a photoshoot and also managed to get his autograph near the end of the day. I'm so glad I didn't miss him as lots of the guests had left by then. I had a brief chat with him when I got his autograph and he said he'd had a great weekend and met some lovely people. If possible I'm even more of a fan of his now he was so nice. A true gentleman. A big thank you to Showmasters for giving me the opportunity to meet him!

    Jeremy Renner Appreciation Thread

    Jeremy is a class act in every way. He was so friendly and I haven't heard anyone say a bad word about him which speaks volumes! I managed to get a hug from him in the photoshoot which made me a very happy girl! :) Also got a personalised autograph and a few words with him which was much more than I expected. His photo and autograph were the most I've ever paid for a guest but it was worth every penny. Thank you so much Showmasters for bringing him to the event!
