For those who have never attended a weekend convention- shame on you- people have a stereotype of what kind of things happen at these events and the type of people who attend. Yes there a few of those type people but the majority are all normal fun people who are all brought together by the love of a favorite show or genre. Noone is judged be they straight, gay, Bi, black or what ever. Cons are the most tollerant places in the world and i have full respect to all that attend.
But i digress back to the Inva2ion review.
Day 1: Friday 11th May
After checking in to the Rennesance Hotel in Heathrow i queued up to pick up the 8x10 photos to get signed- there was an amazing selection for the guests ranging from gorgeous glamour to screen caps and at £10 per pic including autograph i dived right in and brought about 13!!! and then photo shoots with most of the guests- didnt bother with Aaron or Dichen and have had many in the past...though regret that now as some good fun ones coming out from others.
As we awaited the evenings festivities my group and i were lucky enough to be sittign and chatting with Aaron Douglas in the bar area- which would become his home away from home this weekend. The great thing about Aaron is that he brings such a friendly presence to the room you forget he is a celeb guest and just act like he is part of the group. A genuinely fun friendly guy who really enjoys these events and meeting fans.
The Opening ceremony started on usual con time - about 30 mins late. By about 8:30 the hall was full and the atmosphere full of nervous tension and excitement- had all the guests arrived? were there suprises? how sexy was Eliza going to look ? and would she spot me across the crowded room and fall instanly in love with me?...hey it could happen..maybe...
Sean took to the stage and the guest came a flowing.
