The Usual Suspects - Phina Oruche was only there Sunday so she is not in the group shot.

Finally typed up the brief notes from Saturday's Q&A (I didn't bother for Sunday) and tweeked the photos.

Here are a couple of teaser photos.

Charisma (really that pose is  so Cordy)  and Amber

Adam and Tony.

All the photos are on my website  - you'll find links in each Q& A text.

Bit of an disappointing preamble to this event. Over extended organizers had not announced any new guests since February after Amber, Adam and Charisma were on board. Sean Maher was confirmed as late as 7th October and then by 27th he had cancelled.  Late replacements were the awesome Anthony Head (but just one day) and Phina Oruche on the Sunday only too.  Considering a year in the making this was a very light guest list and didn't hold up to promises made at the earlier two events. But that's not to distract from the guests who were there, because they were great - I just felt we should have had a couple more at least. I cannot understand how those who had paid at least £895 for the VIP pass ever felt that they had value for money.

Radisson Edwardian Hotel in Heathrow is far more upmarket than the usual venue - The Thistle,  however the main Hall is far narrower making the rows smaller and the views more restricted/distant even when you had low number Gold tickets like myself. I think the Renaissance across the road had better rooms for the events.

 For some strange reason Massive Events had decided to put intense stage lights straight onto the guests and drop the rest of the hall in darkness. No-one could see the audience and in the Q&A's who was actually asking the questions despite many comments from the guests especially Charisma that the lights were awful and needed to be lowered. Reference to gestapo and torture were also made, but to no real effect. If you seen some pained expressions in the photos some of that is as result of the lighting.

Held up in traffic on the M4,  Tony was not part of the 'Opening Ceremony' and we just had Amber and Charisma so that was very low key. Personally I would have hoped they would have held on until Tony arrived and just start late. Other organizers have done this to no real impact on the rest of the evening.  The meet and greet was a washout and the worst at Hallowhedon to date.  Held in the pretentious and pretty useless Atrium in the Radission (a series of illuminated bridges and large decorative pools which take all the space) large groups of ticket holders huddled round tiny glass tables and struggled to hear/see the guests for the very brief time they spent trying to talk to us. Just two guests mind you so there needed to be plenty of free wine which thankful, there was so I spent most of that evening drowning the disappointment. Apparently Tony arrived just after the Meet and Greet was declared over. I don't know why they just don't sit the attendees around proper tables in well lit rooms so we can all at least get to know each other before the guests get to the table.

I've been back about an hour now from Hallowhedon Convention. Fun weekend but a little more low key and well behaved than some events. Still I had a good time - got to meet with some whedonverse actors I'd not previously seen.

 Asked ASH about the Shakespeare play and what happened re casting. Marvelled at just how much  Charisma Carpenter actually *is* Cordelia and how much Adam Busch *isn't* Warren. Phina was hilarious and  Amber was very sweet too :)   Full report and photos follows when I've finished carving pumpkins.  Happy Halloween everyone and don't eat too much candy.

Fruit Punch anyone?

Ok so this was for the Vampire Ball signing. Mark was very sweet about the sketch - I thought I'd post this to get everyone in the mood for Halloween which is fast aproaching. 

I've just started on a new Cordelia 'You're Welcome' sketch for next weeks Convention Hallowhedon 3,  where Charisma is scheduled to appear.   I've have a trio montage featuring  Adam Busch - Warren from 6 years ago awaitng the completion of the  signatures, and as I've already have a couple of Amber Benson and Sean Maher signed art pieces,  it's the watcher's guides for them.  Unless I change my mind and suddenly have lots of time to kill before then (unlikely).

So one of the things I was going to do at some time was post the other Collectormania 14 sketch -  this......

Amber really seemed to like it too, so that was great :)  It's not as detailed as the Mercedes portrait but I kind of like the simple feel to it. 

In other news )

Collectormania 14 - selected guests.  Look,see all the pretties 



the rest are all here

Back from Milton Keynes, all went well.  Had some artwork signed by Amber and Mercedes (lovely ladies) They said they liked it and call me trusting,  but  I believed them (damn fine actresses both)  ;)  I'll post previews here in a couple of days.

 J snapped a load of photos including some of Morena Baccarin, Mark Sheppard & Jamie Bamber :)  Michael Rosenbaum from Smallville was also there but he was never at his signing desk so no chance to do a paparazzo on him.  I did sneak a peak at some of his photoshoot pictures - OOh he had hair, it was rather strange to see.  Adam (I tend to cancel alot ) Baldwin had, yes you guessed it, cancelled and so had J August Richards.But it was cool as I had not met Mercedes before, hadn't spent time doing pieces for the lads to sign and hey if they are working that's all good for me. 

 Ellie met 'Neville Longbottom' from Harry Potter and he was so nice chatting to her that it really made my day, and hers too.  

 I didn't get much time to chat to [ profile] fresleyforever   - wish I had a chance to sit and catch up with you, but I always seem to have to rush these events for fear of family boredom, not the same as chilling out at a con eh?  Next time I may be solo and we'll do lunch or something.

I was going to start vidding tomorrow honest! - I've projects to do, but I've just seen the updated guest list at Collectormania signing at the end of September.

I knew about Adam Baldwin (I'm seeing him again at T1 Convention next April) but look who they've just announced:

Amber Benson (woo! I've met Amber briefly once so I really want to see her again)
Morena Baccarin
Jamie Bamber (now known as ' small but perfectly formed' after Serenity Complete)
Mercedes McNab (wootwoot! the only member of Angel 'regular' cast I haven't met so I've just got to see her - completist much?)

Hoping  [info]acrazywench   can be convinced to join me (Jamie Bamber ! - you know you want to...)

Well we left pretty early to get to Milton Keynes for Collectormania 10 - the whole family in tow (bar the cat of course) - bless 'em - I owe them a Sunday morning lie-in so *hugs* to them for getting up and being so great today. Hubs did great with the pics as usual, the full set will go up on the site probably tomorrow but here are a few teasers now straight from the Scum Pits of Ur... )

All in all a good day meeting lots of really great whedonverse actors.

Do you know there are very few HQ photos of Elisabeth Rohm as 'Kate' around. Last stop or whatever it is called these days. If not it will have to be screen caps.

Amber Benson is finished clicky here  )

And whilst I am here Happy Birthday to [ profile] bananainpyjamas Hope it's not too late....

*note to self - new LJ theme needed*

So Book and Badger are done. I am quite pleased with Book, he looked so stern in the painting I did last time. Ron is not due to appear but I am being optimistic. Super optimism will hopefully give me time to do Gina before the weekend. I'd also like to do another Mal, just because he is so pretty.

Book )

Normally conventions are far better for meeting whedonverse actors than signings but Collectormania 10 is shaping up to be sooo exciting. I have just seen that Elisabeth Rohm has been announced, so I am doing the 'dance of joy'. Along with 'Kate' we will also have 'Holland' Sam Anderson, 'Tara' Amber Benson, 'Jayne' (woot) Adam Baldwin, 'Maggie Walsh' Lindsay Crouse, 'Patience' from Serenity- Firefly and finally 'Drusilla' Juliet Landau. I have only met Juliet so that is a great line up (cross fingers no cancellations).

And finally

My thoughts are with all the people who lost relatives and friends in 9/11. We won't forget.
