Just to round it all off a coupla highlights for me at LFCC. Ran into a guy dressed as the original Bishop from the 90’s (turned out he actually was inspired by the animated series), Kenny Baker going old school, a rare Alien / Marine chat and I can’t remember what the other one was. But there it is. LFCC in pictures….. Let us know what you thunk.
There was a lot going on at the LFCC (mostly queues for autograph hunters) but there were the occassional Cos players. Never been a big Cos player myself (my costume being a T-Shirt with a Spider-man logo on it) but the showing at LFCC was great. Hercules and She-Hulk had a pull -off, three genuinely innovative ways of dressing like things out of Doctor Who, a Marvel / DC crossover and a guy who was over reliant on the Tardis being larger on the inside.
One more to go later this week. Just stuff. Ghostbusters, Alien and a 90s throwback.
Not a bad weekend at the London Film and Comic Con at Earls Court 2 (there’s a second one). A long one – first time they’ve extended it over three days there were some famous Christopher’s (in the form of Doc Brown and Highlander) about the place. Christopher Lloyd refused to leave until he had signed autographs for everyone who had queued. Nice guy. £25 a signature though I’d hang about too if I was a more cynical soul. Corey Feldman was reportedly a douche. That’s not news, merely a continued state of affairs. But when you are sitting under an image of yourself from 20 years ago in order to remind people who you are you should probably show a little humility (though most likely its the last time you want to).
Fun was had. Met some great creators over the weekend and while the cosplayers were in low numbers those that did turn up were top end. More of them on Wednesday.
