July '09 - London Film & Comic Con.
planning to go to the London Film & Comic
Con this year because I never had much money,
but about a week before I looked at their
website and discovered that Keeley Hawes was
going to be there. So I changed my mind and
decided I would go just to get her autograph
and no one elses.
by myself and arived at about 9.30 am, then
got my ticket for her autograph and I was
number 293, so it was going to be a long long
wait to get her autograph and eventually did
by around 4.00 pm. While I was getting her
autograph the woman in front of me gave
Keeley a fan mail letter, there was also a
fan mail post card on the table. I never
thought that people did that at conventions
and I wished I had thought of that too. When
Keeley speaks she has the exact same voice as
Lara Croft and it's almost like meeting the
real Lara even though she's a fictional
character, I felt all nervy.
waiting in the queue for the autopgraph a man
was standing and looking at other celebs, he
wasn't moving forward, when one of the
convention staff told everyone to move up the
man turned around and just walked away. I
think he was just waiting in line to get a
sneaky peek at all of the other celebrities.
I took a sneaky photo of Jewel Staite and
Michael Shanks but the Michael Shanks photo
came out blurred.
had my photo taken with Keeley but had to do
that seperately from getting her autograph,
this meant more expense but a better quality
photograph. It was quite late about 5.30 pm
when the photos were handed out and a lot of
people were complaining.
were two stages with mostly free talks but a
few had to be paid for. Some required a
ticket but were still free. I saw a Red Dwarf
talk where Danny John-Jules, Chloe Annett and
Hattie Hayridge answered questions from
people, I was surprised how Chloe Annett
looked so different in real life. There was
also a Dr Who talk that I missed because I
was getting my photo done with Keeley Hawles.
There was a cosplay parade and a talk by a
comic book artist. There was also a talk by a
writer Robert Rankin but he was telling an
anekdote about how he grows his own drugs so
noticed at a lot of the talks, when people
sit down, so many women have their bum cracks
showing, almost like builders bottoms,
somtimes I don't know where to look.
buy much this time, it was mainly lots of
photos and vids that I've uploaded into
Youtube. I never wore a costume this time
instead I wore a Tomb Raider Underworld shirt.
