Right so here's the deal-io I went to my first convention in April this year! At which I bought 2 things apart from pictures and autographs. So this will be an interesting 5 Fandom Friday where I see what I can hunt out to be kinda sorta linked to this topic...... Let's start with the easy ones!
1. Baker Street Oyster Card Holder.
So my first con was Sherlocked in April. I loved it and you can read all about my adventures here. It was an epic experience. I bought myself a new Oyster card holder because I needed to keep my old one safe because I got Arthur Darvill (Clang - excuse me while I pick up that name I dropped) to sign it when I bumped into him in London.
2. Sherlocked Mug
I got this for my husband who is a very patient and understanding creature who smiles and nods when I geek out about something. And I return the favour when he is talking sport! But technically I bought it so it can totally make the list.
3. Afternoon with Mark Gatiss Signed Poster.
Last November Vicki and I attended a fundraiser for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard. It was a hilarious QnA session hosted by the delightful Mr Gatiss. At the interval these lovely autographed posters were on sale to raise more money for LLGS. It was a brilliant afternoon and I'd highly recommend going if they do another one.
4. My buttons.
Ok so these were bought at a con on my behalf.... That counts right?! My gorgeous Internet and now real life gal pal Jackie bought me these lovely button badges from Wizard World In Philadelphia. Now they have pride of place on my back pack!
5. Olivier Awards Pencil.
Ok now I'm really stretching the boundaries of this Fandom 5..... But last April I attended the Olivier Awards which I really must blog about one day! It was a truly magical experience. So glamorous I was in heaven! Anyway they had a little shop in Covent Garden where I bought some little souvenirs including this pencil. That counts as merch right?!
Phew I made it! Just about! I hope you enjoyed reading my list of things that sort of count as things I bought at a Convention. Thank you as always to the ever so lovely Megan from The Nerdy Girlie and Krisin from Super Space Chick for starting the 5 Fandom Friday fun.
