This weekend just passed marked the annual LFCC, which I had the pleasure of attending with Tim.
The trip there was far more pleasurable than usual, only taking around an hour and a half compared to the hellish travel I used to have to experience from Newport.
Unlike usual there wasn't that many people that attracted me to the event, it was more of the ritual of going down and looking at the stalls that made me want to go, I just really wanted a change of scenery, I did however want to meet Michael Ironside, a legendary actor who has nowhere near as much recognition as he should, and Keeley Hawes; Alex Drake in Ashes to Ashes, so they gave the event a bit of a bonus.
The cosplay was a little disappointing, not many more than your run of the mill people, there was a very nice poison ivy, and a small child doing a very good scout, its a shame cause I do enjoy seeing them.
Didn't come away with any games purchased, I was close to getting a gamestation metal gear watch but it wouldn't have been worth it.. all the stalls were a bit too expensive for me really, I saw a few things that I would have bought could I of afforded them, but nothing so amazing that I had to own it.. which was a shame.
As for the guests I only saw Michael Ironside, who was pretty much everything I had hoped for him to be, he remembered me when I had my photo with him, and asked where Tim was which was nice.
I also had a photo with Keeley Hawes who was absolutely stunning, can't wait for the third series of Ashes to Ashes. I do regret not meeting her though cause apparently she was nice and chatty.
Unfortunately I am still awaiting my photos of Keeley and Michael as me and Tim just couldn't be bothered to wait around for the photos to be developed because we were so tired, should be receiving them shortly however.
Biggest highlight of the day however was the appearance of a Japan Centre stall which was marvellous, and had the most amazing fresh mochi, I was really tempted to get the underground to Piccadilly so I could get some more but I was dead tired by the end of it all.
Also a shout out to Super Wok in North Camp for the genius of shredded duck fried rice!
