Cardiff expo :)
Well that was a very exhausting and awesome weekend last week filled with madness and fun geekey ideas and people.
The place where I live is not really known for enjoying its comics and geekey trivia and it is always nice to go to a convention and meet others who are just as into, sometimes more so, comics, films, TV and other awesome geekey endeavours as I am 🙂
This time on the stall we had a game to guess the name of the Skull. This was my idea and came from the events I used to help my Nanna with at the church and there was usually a guess the Teddy’s name game 🙂 Well this was that except you had to guess what the skull was called. I had a few people tell me that the name was not on the skull and he looked more like a different name altogether, though I think this may have been an odd ploy to win 🙂
We also had another raffle with a difference, this one involved a Magicians box that I painted with stars and made sparkley with spray paint 🙂 Someone actually got that at the end of the convention, not sure what they wanted to put in it, probably notes or jewellery or all those things in a bedroom that never quite have a place 🙂 Who knows?
Other things we had were more hand painted books and a new comic idea that you have to finish the ending yourself for 🙂 I am really interested to see what people come up with for this.
I also got to see the finished book that the great escape did using Kickstarter 🙂 It looks so good I can’t wait to read it 🙂
And of course there were a variety of amazing costumes. Truthfully I can’t remember what they are all from but they all look awesome 🙂
Oh and we made a very happy raffle winner 🙂 She even drew me an awesome picture of the Teddy she won 🙂
Below are the photos of the costumes 🙂 They are really awesome, my favourate is the LOTR/ Hobbit cast, mainly because Kili even went to the effort of drawing on the beard. The guy dressed as bilbo made his own sword which was rather cool 🙂 I also got some photos of lookalikes of the two most recent doctors, but they are on the kat in the attic blog as i didn’t want to overload the blog with photos 🙂
Hope you like the photos 🙂
The skull never told me that he actually needed reading glasses 🙂 I think the rather suit him 🙂
