Hallowhedon is an annual weekend convention run by Massive Events based around the theme of shows created by Joss Whedon. Primarily this covers Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly/Serenity and Dollhouse and unless you’ve missed the heavy clue in the title it happens on or close to Halloween.

Hallowhedon 3 was the first themed weekend convention I attended and even though I didn’t really know anyone else at the time I enjoyed it. (more…)

London Film and Comic Con Winter 2014

Another weekend, another convention. Run by Showmasters, London Film and Comic Con is a signing event more than a convention, though people interchange the phrases. A convention is really more like a themed event, say at a hotel where you will normally stay as well and where there will be evening parties, meet and greet opportunities with the guests and other things going on.

These signing events are more generic, will have a range of actors from a variety of films and shows, comic artists and writers, cosplay and authors too.

There are two LFCC events each year now, the main summer show in July and a winter one which is usually in October. (more…)

I think I’ve said somewhere along the line that I go to conventions. Not your business type conferences where you discuss the latest in grommet actuation technology or something, but conventions where you can meet actors from film and TV shows, get their autographs, have photos with them, give a bit of love back and hang out with a really cool bunch of like minded people.

These things have a bad reputation and the world is full of jokes about people dressing up as characters from their favourite show and walking around speaking Klingon etc. And yes, this does happen but to be honest it only adds to the atmosphere. (more…)
