It doesn’t matter who you are or what your age is, as long as you are having fun, that is the most important thing.
Check out the video below. It shows the many Cosplayers you will find at an event such as this.
It was the first time I went on a Friday, and to be honest it was pleasant. It wasn’t crowded and you could move around at a leisurely pace, without feeling claustrophobic.
Saturday was a different matter. Even though you could move in a wheelchair, the crowd of people around the autograph tables and photo shoot areas was like a tin of sardines. Most of time you need to be loud and forceful to make your way to the front to get the help you need. The accessibility policy is clearly states that if you require and have an ‘Extra Help’ wristband, you will be expedited to the head of the queues. In each case, it is best to attract the attention of a ‘pit boss’, to move you to the head of the queue.
But, that is easier said than than. That is why one needs to be calm yet forceful, to excuse your way through the crowd of people to get the attention of the ‘pit boss’. It is always best to plan your day beforehand, using the published timetable. But be prepared for ‘literally’, last minute changes as you’re waiting in the queues.
Still, one of the best weekends ever.

Stanley Kubrick Exhibition 2019
I went to the Stanley Kubrick Exhibition at the Design Museum in London, Sept 2019.
It is 20 years since his passing.
The exhibition told the story of Stanley Kubrick and explored his creative design process of film making, from storyteller to director to editor.
Originally from the Bronx in New York, Stanley Kubrick made his home in Hertfordshire from 1961 until his death in 1999. London was a source of inspiration and the backdrop to some of his scenes where the city became something entirely new each time.
Stanley Kubrick was fascinated with all aspects of design. He collaborated with the leading designers to create costumes, film posters, props and sets for some of the scenes in cinema history, regarded as iconic.
Here’s a glimpse of what I saw at the exhibition.
