So spent the weekend at The Film and Comic con in my local town.  First time we have had one so close so it was nice not to have to travel further like up to London.  Had an awesome weekend, where to begin . . . . .

Merchandise

One of the best things about comic con.  I bought so much stuff including about 7 new Pop Funko figures.  They were everywhere!  Bought some cool T Shirts as well.  My find of the weekend was this awesome Hellboy action figure dimebagsdarrell.deviantart.com…  Also bought a Gears of War action figure I needed.  Scary thing it I only bought 3 comics.  And a graphic novel to.  Also bought some really random stuff including a keyring of Thor’s hammer and an Agents of Shield pen.

Something I have never bothered with before, pre autographed photos.  Now I always feel that unless you meet someone and get an autograph yourself, it really doesn’t mean anything and you can never be 100% sure that it is authentic.  But there was so many people selling them I found it hard to resist.  One of the photos I bought I’m not sure about as it came with no certificate of authenticity.  It was one signed by Simon Pegg one of my favourite actors.  I haven’t bothered taking a pic of it but it was this print images2.fanpop.com/images/phot… supposedly signed by him.  The other one I bought did come with a certificate of authenticity and I showed it to another a dealer and he said they were a trustworthy company.  Again I didn’t bother taking a pic but it was this print from the Avengers www.geekchicelite.com/wp-conte… signed by Jeremy Renner.  If anything it is something to go on the wall I guess.  Both prints together cost £60.  Still doesn’t mean as much as meeting these people and getting an autograph (God I’d love to meet those 2!!!) but still cool to have.

Guests/Talks

So I also went to 2 talks as well.  One was a Game of Thrones talk with Brenock O'Connor (Olly) Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor)  It was a Q&A panel.  Very funny actually and really cool to see some of the actors.  Kristian Nairn who plays Hodor is pretty cool and funny to. 

I was also very lucky that Chris Barrie was there.  For those of you that don’t know, he played Rimmer on the BBC sitcom Red Dwarf.  pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/2… I say was, they are making 2 more seasons.  I went to his talk which was very funny and I bought a ticket to have my photo taken with him as well, and I got the photo signed to and shook his hand so I was very happy about that.  Probably the highlight of my weekend. Red Dwarf is a show I have loved since I was a kid so it meant a lot to meet him. 

Cool Photo Opportunities

I seriously geeked out when I had my photo taken in the Delorean from back to the future, which is something I have loved as long as I can remember.  That was awesome :woohoo: Also the Iron throne from Game of Thrones was there as well and you could sit in it and take your own photo.  The money for that was all for charity as well.  So it was pretty awesome to sit in that.

All the cosplay

One of the things I love about comic con is seeing all the people dressed up.  So cool.  I must of seen about 3 Deadpools, Spiderman, Groot, Captain America, Winter Soldier, Nick Fury, Ghostbusters, Groot, Arrow, Black Widow, Thor the list goes on.  I will put some pictures up of the ones I got.

 

So that was my weekend.  Less focused on the comics this time round but only because I am so behind reading them.  More interested  in the future now of getting autographs and photos with people.  I’ve decided to make a list of the people I want to meet.  I’ll call it my hit list :rofl:  I doubt I will meet them all but we shall see, plenty more conventions to go to in the future.

I've been on Deviant art for 7 years so I thought it was about time I wrote a bit about me. (Update, 10 years!! wow) Well, I love art, photography and music. I love to draw, although I could be a lot better. I also play guitar, but havent done in a while. Over the last 3 years I have developed a love for comics. I love Wolverine he is my all time favourite character. (Still love Wolvie but have a bit of an obsession with Hawkeye at the moment) My other favourite characters include X Men, Avengers, Hellboy and Deadpool. Over the last year I have gotten into video games again, after getting a bit obsessed with the Gears of War franchise, of which I have played all the games and read all the novels and I'd highly recommend them to anyone. I love collecting statues and figures as you can see here fav.me/d59ejp5 some belong to my fiancé.
I love photography, I have some more of that here :iconjennyd-photography: I love nature, wildlife, landscape and macro the most. I also love music, and I love so many types including Metal/thrash metal, rock, pop, dance, rap, dubstep, classical, soundtrack, instrumental the list goes on and on.
I live with my Mum and my lovely finance who I've been with for 11 years. I work for a self storage company, and on my days off I like going for walks or bike rides, I love going to the beach, or just sitting on my ass reading comics or playing Xbox.
Aside from being obsessed with Wolverine and Gears of War, (And the Avengers now!) I also love, True Blood, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Arrow, The Back to the Future Movies, The Lion King, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory, Red Dwarf oh the list goes on again.
Some random facts about me, My favourite animals are wolves and tigers. I'm scared of spiders but they kinda fascinate me as well. I'm also creeped out by road sweepers, don't know why. I probably watch may too much kids TV for an adult, and I'm never on one to get obsessed with celebrities, just fictional characters :D
Hope that paints a better picture of me, bye for now :wave:
