There were a lot of Star Wars characters this time around, and Graeme has great fun meeting them all.
There were some big names as always I got this sneaky picture of Warwick Davies, have you been watching his new series with Ricky Gervais, Life's too Short. I just love it, so funny, so cringe worthy, so brilliant!!
Ian McNeice who plays Bert Large in Doc Martin and had come dressed as him. But then decided to pose as Winston Churchill; it was a tad confusing but nice to meet him.
We bumped into some very colourful characters, I just love the Cookie Monster. The costumes of the Mad Hatter and March Hare were amazing and so detailed.
Jack Skellington costume from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
This really take me back, they had a Robot Wars demonstration stage set up at the back of the memorabilia hall. My brother, Dad and I loved this show when I was growing up. Oh and a Dalek decided he wanted to join in too.
Outside there was lots of posing going on, so the perfect photo op to capture as many costumes as possible in one go. I didn't realise at the time, but seriously what is that guy wearing on the right? Cover yourself up man, well at least I hope it's a man!!
I was also on the hunt to find my Uni house mates Fay from Parfay and Jodie from Tangentine who I knew had a table together in the Comic Corner to sell their own work. It was great to see them as it has been nearly a year and of course I had to buy their new comics which I read straight away. I love their different styles of artwork, Fay has drawn a short story about young street urchin named Marci. Jodie had a collection of short stories and some of her artwork, she is an amazing artist, I am definitely going to have to get some of her artwork for when I move out.
Lastly I treated myself and bought some some artwork from Movie Art Prints.com. The artist Andrew Timbs recreates scenes from film, tv and theatre using digital vector illustration programs from scratch, none of it is photo manipulation. I couldn't decide which I liked the best and ended up buying an AT-AT from Star Wars and a huge artwork of the toys from Toy Story all falling out of a box. They are printed beautifully in high quality and come on foam board so all I need to stick them up is some velcro, so quick and easy.
