Last Saturday, Bert and I got up far earlier than we usually do for a convention (6am) because we wanted to be there at opening time.
Mostly because I wanted to see the Lightsaber battle demonstration.
We picked up Lora at her place, and spend some time petting her adorable bunnies Fiver and Lukka, and asking Tom what he wanted merch wise so we could help Lora look.
I wrote a proper review on The Gatehouse here, this is just my run-down of the day. And what a fun day it was!
He is seriously one of the nicest, possibly THE nicest, celebrity I have ever met! He took so much time for us, even though he had to go to lunch (to his manager: I am really sorry for taking up so much time, I really do appreciate you setting it all up, you rock!).
He even took time to pose with us, and Bert, again for extra shots in case we wanted to use them in BCM!
Bert was super happy to meet him too, because Gimli is his favourite character from Lord of the Rings.
Seriously, thank you everyone that helped make this possible, because this was an amazing moment for all of us!
We found a mostly white wall, so we decided that it was as good a spot as any to do outfit shots.
I really should have thought my outfit through rather than go “oh I want to wear this dress” and then just throw some stuff on on the day itself just after 6am. Shan't be making that mistake again!

Afterwards we spent a few more hours wandering the convention, taking photos and taking it all in some more.
I got Bert a Pickle Rick t-shirt. Just a word of warning, Bioworld t-shirts run small, so if you get one from that brand, size up. I think I'll get him a bigger size at large.be next month, because this one does fit but it's too short :(.
He got me a really cool Harry Potter bag at the Large stand. I use these small bags to keep my iPod in, and in winter also my gloves. They're also really handy when I go to concerts, so I can just carry essentials and nothing else :).
It was pretty late in the afternoon when we went home again, we didn't stay 'till the end, which I kinda regret now. But we had a really awesome time and I can't wait 'till the next event!
Roll on summer for Comic Con Gent!
