This May the 4th weekend for 2013 saw the first of what will be hopefully be the Annual Screen Con event here in Tyne and Wear. You can check out all my photos here.
For the first event they had quite a nice little line up, including the seventh Doctor and Radagast the Brown from the Hobbit Sylvester McCoy. Jeremy Bulloch or Boba Fett from Star Wars, Alan Harris as the bounty hunter Bossk, Michael Henbury the shortest man in Britain an Ewok and a Gringotts Goblin in Harry Potter, and Laurie Goode Stormtrooper.
In addition to the guests there was plenty of Cosplay from Klingon’s to Stormtrooper, I was going to wear my Cunning Hat but I was way too hot a day to be wearing a woolly hat.
It was indeed very crowded and despite a miner technical glitch during the Q & A with Jeremy Bulloch it was a good day. We got to meet and briefly chat with the guest while getting our autographs and photos taken we missed one as Michael Henbury had disappeared (or scurried off under a table). As the guest where all staying at the hotel where I was working I was tempted to ask him there but when they all came back at midnight I didn’t want to bother them but still managed to have a little chat with Jeremy Bulloch and the very inebriated Sylvester McCoy. I’m looking forward to next year and for next time I will conduct a short course for my Padawan as so that he can operate my Canon 50D.
