A sad farewell till the next sfx weekender


This years sfx weekender was a folly of delights, witty remarks and incredible costumes. It is sad that it has ended, but excitement already, for booking has already begun for number 4.

Having panels with Brian Blessed, Eve meryres, Sylvester Mc Coy and Colin baker does make it harder for the team to plan the awesome event for next years.

Though pointins and their staff were the cause for almost all of the issues, with little the sfx crew could do to stop! One thing is clear, the staff were slow, daft and very rude, and I feel sad that the sfx guys had to deal with them more than us.

The weekend however was incredible, and the laughs had where great.

My biggest issue? The lady dressed as a female 6th doctor, not with our group, who groped my noob. Whoever you are, make sure you don’t do this in future, as I hope the next person has the balls to report you, you sexual fend.

The reason I feel so much about this, is I have been assaulted before, so it brought back memories, but also the trust is broken. In conventions there usually seemed to be an unwritten rule of trust and respect, allowing for people to feel safe in dressing up. I wasn’t even dressed slutty however, and made it clear she was just after boobage!

But, as I must, I will look to the incredible (and avoid her in future)

So bring on mcm expo in May!

Brian Blessed and his epic space announcement

Brian Blessed gave not only an excellently witty talk, yelling at the mod on stage, finishing with an epic announcement.

Brian Blessed is going into space! They might not here you scream in space, but they will hear him!

On the way to sfx weekender


Today I am making the long yet very worth while journey to Wales for the sfx weekender. And as I do, the hills are already turning white.

While last year was a rainy affair, this one sets to be cold and white! Even if it is only for the journey.

And this is why I sometimes love going by train, seeing a snapshot of a rural picture that still does exist in England. There are people you meet and just the chance to drift off.

This trip is particularly existing because my friends are at the other end, with a fun packed weekend of geeky pleasure. It might also be for the stuffed elephant in my bag…

I’ll explain, where I work they have an elephant that has its picture taken with celebrities who usually visit Devon. I’m taking her however to meet a more geeky set of celebs, hoping to bring in a different, yet enormous audience.

There’s not many people that can say that they try to increase a charities awareness with a stuffed elephant!

So the likes of Brian Blessed, Sylvester Mc coy and Antony Head Stewart await! Hopefully I’ll have there snaps with the stiffed toy hiding in my bag…
