It’s been a really busy couple of weeks, what with work and Christmas preparations, so I haven’t had much time for blogging unfortunately. By the time I get home from work I’m usually too tired to do anything other than sit on the sofa and watch telly. I have so many plans for posts, so hopefully it’ll get better when I get into the routine.
I’ve almost finished my Christmas shopping, so that’s something to cross off my to-do list. I only have one or two presents left to buy now, and everything else is wrapped, which means I can avoid the December weekend crowds. I’ve also got a couple of weeks off starting on Christmas Eve, so I’ll have some time to relax.
A couple of weeks ago me and Andy went to Comic Con in Birmingham. We used the Bane and Poison Ivy costumes we wore in London, because we didn’t have time to make anything new, unfortunately. Next time we’re thinking of doing either Cable and Domino (Marvel), or Sally Jupiter and The Comedian (Watchmen), depending on whether we can get the costumes together. Here we are anyway:
This photo shows that Bane is 100% capable of lifting polystyrene. Hmmm…
It was a lot busier than it was last time, which made it quite difficult to see all the stalls, so we ended up missing quite a bit of stuff. We still bought more than enough though. I came home with a lot of comics and graphic novels, including a few Deadpools and the Daredevil Noir series. I also got these:
Yeah, they are Pokemon cards. Yeah, I am 23.
I’m definitely looking forward to going again, though I may consider Liverpool for next time, as it’s a lot nearer. I don’t mind the three hours travel time, but getting up at 6 on a weekend is a little bit painful.
Do you go to comic conventions? If you were to go, who would you go as?
