So on Saturday I attended Supanova Melbourne and it was not that great. I had paid MORE money to enter early instead it was more easier and quicker to have gone into the paying for tickets line How does that work exactly? 45 minutes in a line where by the end of it despite getting there early I missed out on the only chance to meet Simon Pegg....... yet again. I had missed out on alot of Bargains as well while all the people who had been lazy and paid there less expensive tickets and were allowed IN with their Bonus Raffle Ticket for a chance to meet the Man.
Is it Me or is Commitment hard to absorb for most people Famous or Otherwise? If I'm booked to make an Appearance then surely I am Obligated to Attend and any others will just have to wait. I've not been invited to any cons but if I were and I was not paying for the Trip I would do my darnest to attend. Even if no-one came to see me I would feel that I did the right thing.
Yeah thats Me, not much to look At or Maybe Too Much!!
Ok enough with the Negatives, here are some Positives. Geeks get to hangout with one another instead of being alone in their parents basements (like me) or in their apartments with corn chips and empty Pizza boxes everywhere.
The Variety of shops are cool, and being such a toy and figure hound I like to sniff out the bargains or those things I just don't see in Tasmania. I got some cool stuff my Favorite being a Big Daddy figure from the game BioShock and a Dead Space Issac. I said hello to Doug Holgate who had his own Table and discussed some things with him comic related, meeting a couple of his artist friends who happen to be friends of friends, Doug Offered to supply a Pin-Up for Lord Fancy which surprised me without any coercion for when its done. I'm not sure if people want a Pin-Up Gallery featured? we'll see if the cost is affordable for the Book or if it will have to wait until it is in a hardback version haha.
