10 Things I Love About Comic Con


I'm experiencing con flu - and not just the actual flu where I feel like death - but con flu, the one where I am missing comic con a great deal. It's been a little over 3 weeks since MCM London was all over, and I want to be back there already!

The planning
There is just something about planning when to get tickets, what days to go, what trains we're getting, and what food we'll quickly munch before we get going. I get super excited during the planning, and that's before I'm even there!

Convention only items
Predominately Funko's POP! figures, I love seeing what items are specifically for the convention, as it is more likely I'll buy it!

Cosplaying
Still getting into this, but I've done this for the last 4 times I've gone. I've been a generic Gryffindor student twice, and Arkham Knight Harley Quinn, as well as animated series Dr Harley Quinn.


Meeting other geeks!
I've meet a handful of amazing people at these conventions. Even if it's just a quick chat when I'm getting a picture of their cosplay, or even via Instagram after the event is over, I love making new geek buddies! Plus there are always a dozen meetups going on for different fandoms, where you can meet loads of people.

Time with my cousins
I go with my two cousins, Daniel and Lucy, each time. It's nice getting to spend a whole weekend with them, and being right in our comfort zones of shopping goodies, and pointing out all the amazing cosplayers we see!

Panels
Though I don't really go to these, I've been to a few of the Creator Space ones in the past. I'd love to go to the main stage ones at some point, but they're always so busy! This is a great way to see what your fave YouTubers, actors, comic writers/artists are up to.


Celeb Guests
On the subjects of panels, you can see an array of celebs at these events. I've seen a few of the original Power Rangers, Paul Bettany, David Bradley, and others from a distance! Also spotted Warwick Davies one year and managed to catch his eye and wave at him, and he waved back. Hoping that MCM London has more amazing guests in the future - fingers crossed for Captain America himself, Chris Evans!

Buying goodies
My nerd soul is always fulfilled from all the things I buy. Do I need any of it? No. But that doesn't stop me dropping £200+ every time I go!


Sneak peeks at upcoming TV shows/movies
At the panels, you can sometimes be lucky and get a sneak peek at trailers that are not yest released, scenes from upcoming TV episodes, and sometimes a clip or two of a movie you are dying to see!

The exhaustion
A weird one to add I know, but as much as I ache all over from the weekend of walking, heavy bags and the thousands of steps at the train stations  - it's a sign of a good weekend!


I really hope I can go again next year, so I can go mad and buy more things! What things do you like about Comic Con, if you've ever been to any around the world? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Stocking Fillers Under £10


Shock. Horror. A Christmas post!

It's the middle of November, and I'm about to give you a stocking filler gift idea post! I think Superdrug, Find Me A Gift, and Jewellery Box UK, are all fab for this kind of mini gift, so all of the below items can be found via their site, or in stores.

I tend to get a few items for small gifts for my friends and family - and maybe not quite small enough for a stocking, but they're all amazing ideas. May it be a little chocolate treat, something fun, or even a beauty item! All of these are under £10, so perfect if you are on a budget!




Hope this was helpful and you can find some goodies for people! What sort of items do you like to get as stocking fillers? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

London MCM Comic Con Haul!


Okay, so I'm still sick, and I have little energy to go to work, let alone do a blog post. SO, here's a cheat day for me! I was originally going to take pictures of everything for you to see, but that didn't work out, so here we have my MCM London Comic Con haul video!

It's filled with a bunch of goodies, such as jewelry, mystery boxes, Harry Potter and Harley Quinn merch, and more!



And if you're confused about the bag idea I saw people walking around with, here's my bag after an hour and ten minutes of pinning things to mine! I drew blood for this beauty, and I'm super happy with how it looks - even though it now weighs an awful lot! What fandoms can you spot?


See you all next week when I am hopefully a lot better! What did you like from my haul?
Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

Artists I'm Currently Loving | Part 2


This colder weather is perfect getting snuggled up with a book, and for listening to song while getting on with tasks, or just relaxing. I've been hooked on these artists and songs for the last month or so, and these are ones I listen to each day, without fail!


Runaway June
I found these girls at the end of September, and I am hooked. Buy My Own Drinks is my current fave girl anthem, and it's one I managed to learn all the words to in a few short days, as I played it repetitively. Their other song, Wild West, is another one I've enjoyed a lot lately, and it's country so of course I'm a fan!

Levi Hummon
His new EP is amazing, and I finally got around to buying it yesterday. My fave songs have to be Patient, and Earthquake. They both have amazing lyrics, and his vocals are amazing on the entire EP. I can't wait to see what else he brings out.

Kane Brown
I've had Homesick for the last month, and then found Lose It, last week. Homesick is one I fell in love with the first time I heard it - all because of his voice! Another country artist that I've spent a lot of the past month listening too on YouTube!

We The Kings
One of the few bands that I enjoy every single song from. I've got all of their albums, but there are some songs that truly stand out to me. Of course, Check Yes Juliet, is one of their best known songs, and one of my faves. I love Spin, Never Your Fault, and the one that first got me into their music - Just Keep Breathing. I love their music so much, and have yet to find a song I dislike.

Old Dominion
Another new group I found in October, and another country one! Hotel Key was the first one I found, and it's such a good song, and even the video for it made me laugh. Make it Sweet is their latest release, and it's got some truly amazing lyrics in it if you listen close enough!


What artist are you enjoying the most right now? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

London MCM Comic Con 2018!


Last weekend was time for us to head to London, for MCM Comic Con! I've been excited about this since May, and thankfully got to get the weekend priority tickets just before they sold out.

We only done a few hours on the Friday as I was going out in the evening, but it meant we could see everything with less people, and buy a lot in a quicker time. Saturday and Sunday meant being up at 5:30am for the really early 6:45am train, after I collected the cousins from home and getting to the station! We were all exhausted come Sunday evening. We met a bunch of amazing cosplayers, bought copious amounts of goodies - and I got to meet Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, who write and illustrate the Harley Quinn comic books respectively.

I'm not going to go on and on about the weekend too much, as there are a billion pictures in this post - BUT, if you'd prefer to just watch what we got up too, there is a quick lil vlog down at the bottom! Grab a drink and get comfy, this goes on a while...



































I had such a great weekend, albeit hurting from head to toe come Monday morning for work! If you went to the Con, how did you find it - and did you meet any of the celebs up there? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
