  1. so, the good news is, the 2 photos I had back at the event that were of a really poor quality look much much better in the digital format, the bad news is it is going to cost me another £10 to get them... is it worth emailing the folk in charge to mention this? I kinda begrudge paying more money for something that wasn't right to begin with but don't know if anyone else has had similar issues and brought it up with a positive outcome??
  2. Stormtrooper guy would just be happy he didn't miss the shoot.... that is a Star Wars joke folk, from someone that doesn't like Star Wars... you are welcome
  3. I totally get you shouldn't do these things for other people, sure it is nice they get enjoyment out of them but I am certainly not going to spend hundreds of pounds on photos with celebs just on the chance someone I went to school with but never spoke to likes them... That said, for me personally, I like to look at them and see that it is me with them... I know that isn't the case for everyone, clearly not otherwise people wouldn't wear masks covering their faces, but I just find it interesting as to people's thinking is all
  4. ok, not knocking anyone of course but genuinely curious so bear with me... do you not mind paying loads of money to take a photo with someone, potentially for the only time you would get a chance only to have your face covered up? I get Cosplay and fair play to all those that put so much time and effort and money into it but if you pay money to have a photo with James Caan for example and know it may not ever happen again only to not be recognizable, do you not think it is a bit of a waste? Really curious to the thought process is all... I remember the first time I saw it, Milo and Adrian from Heroes at LFCC years ago and the guy before me was in full Stormtrooper gear and didn't take his helmet off for the photo
  5. I had heard stories of James all weekend about how he was difficult and got into arguments and that he would never be invited back...! I met him twice, once for an auto and once the photo and both times I thought he was great and when I walked around and saw him he seemed in great spirits too, Not my main reason for attending but as far as star power, you can't get much bigger than him
  6. I was almost tempted to get the Falcor/Worm one... all her work was fantastic but I am not a Star Wars fan, we joked after she saw my Ludo tattoo that maybe that could be something she works on next (a Ludo canvas, not my tattoo...)
  7. When you are told to smile and then people say not to force it... BUT YOU TOLD ME TO SMILE!!! took me years to "perfect" that smile in photos smile.. not 100% convinced I have managed it but it will have to do!
  8. The Highs The Guests for sure, Zach Levi was just as you'd expect from the shows he's in, so full of life but so humble too. Him shouting "I'm at f**king superhero, how the F**K did that happen?!" was a highlight James Caan, was great in the auto line and the photo shoot, asked where I was from, thanked me for coming, asked who had already signed my Elf DVD (Will and Zoey if you wondered) joked that at least auto was clearer to read, proper legend Johnny Whitworth throwing out a Roger Rabbit impression, Tom Welling also showed Roger Rabbit some love (I was wearing a shirt..) Tom Atkins and I chatted about tattoos... Aly Michalka, Jack O'Halloran... loads more, all genuinely lovely. Was a nice bunch of people The Lows... I was not sure whether to post this as I don't want to upset anyone an I generally praise SM over all other events but this was the first show of theirs I have been to in about 11 years where I felt I was just there to spend my money... Johnny Whitworth and Tom Atkins both had their prices increased about a week before the event which threw my spending plans up in the air a bit... Johnny's was a full £10 increase I went to meet Johnny and asked for a photo and he said sorry but he's not allowed, he felt bad at coming across as a bad guy for saying no but had photo shoots planned. I said not to worry and that he should ask for a sign to take that pressure off him. His assistant said if I had asked her she would have said no and wouldn't ask for a sign to go up.. sorry but I never ask the assistant for anything... why would I? Anyway, a potentially awkward encounter asides, he was great in the photo shoot which I ended up buying too Tom Atkins next, he was so nice, chatted to everyone, joking around and was bringing people round the back of his table for photos. I got to him, we chatted, we joked, he signed. I asked for a photo... "I am really sorry but I have just been told I am not allowed to be taking photos with people as I have a photo shoot later" (better note that just before this, a sign went up next to Adrienne who he was sitting next to but not Tom) no worries Tom, genuine pleasure to meet him, so much energy for an 82 year old. Now I have been doing these things a while as I said and I know some guests request a no photos sign and for the busier guests some restrictions are put into place to get people through quicker and more of them but it seems like there are more and more examples of thee guests being told not to pose at the tables. For the record, I didn't ask Aly Michalka for a selfie as I already had a photo shoot (she was doing them before a sign went up) and I didn't buy a photo shoot after Tom politely declined... Lastly, Zach Levi who I never expected to have time to pose for photos as he would surely going to be busy posted a video on his instagram apologising in advance of the convention starting saying he had been asked about selfies but wouldn't be doing them as he has been told that he is not allowed so that is that, I know what responses this will get and truly hope it doesn't result in some sort of forum ban as I sing SM praises all the time but like I say, it is the first time I have felt a little let down by them... any way, see you in March!
  9. they are clearly doing a new season of BSG and just haven't told any one haha
  10. Robert is the one... Luckily enough I have already met Rose, Rahul and Malcolm so Aly and Robert are essential
  11. photo area B issues mentioned elsewhere asides... my only real surprize was how messy the auto queues were. Never do they get out of hand, they are always well organised and of all the events I go to Showmasters are the ones that have always been the best at controlling these. It all got out of hand on Saturday though, there was long lines all around taking up lots of room and preventing people passing through properly. Not helped by seemingly having less space (I'm sure the area for signing was pushed further back last year) VQ tickets were accepted for up to 150 for Danny Glover when there was only really need to be up to 50 for the time he was taking as the space available... Genuinely surprised me that it got like that because as I said, I rarely see it get out of hand (families queuing together for 1 person getting an auto doesn't help) I got everything I went for though, so no massive complaints all in. Just hope it is back to normal come LFCC
  12. photos from A and C were perfect Chad Coleman and Michelle Ryan in area B were disappointing. Michelle was just a little too bright I suppose but Chad was blurry truth be told. I've being doing cons for 11 years and never had a problem with pics, even my Pam Anderson ones were fine but these were poor, shame really. Especially as I love Michelle... haha
  13. Masi Oka Ali Larter Tim Kring Not many people Heroes related left that I haven't met that I would love to, these 3 are massive needs for me though
