Today I went to a completely different event which had no finish line for me to fight for, although there were plenty of t-shirts and other merchandise on offer at the London Film & Comic Con Spring.
As someone who has never been to this type of convention I'd describe it as if Forbidden Planet had a big party, where only a few people remembered it was fancy dress. (Or cosplay as it's known here). There were some truly talented people out there expressing what they love through this form of creativity. While as mentioned not everyone dressed up it certainly is one of the highlights of these events.
Today I decided to take my camera. As I was travelling up I thought I should have printed off some web address on bits of paper so the cosplayers could find my photos easier. Only a 'Pre-adamantium Wolverine,' asked if I was uploading my photos so I pointed to my carefully chosen t-shirt with the Scream At My Face logo which helped on this occassion. It turns out some of the more dedicated cosplayers have gone a step further and have printed proper business cards.
The original intro sequence for my videos is only 8 seconds long. However in this rapid fast pace society we now live in I thought to cut it right down. Run or Dye 2015 is the first video to get the somewhat more atmospheric motion graphics sequence that is now just a 2 second burst, which also loses the gruffy voice title.
Scrolling down my Facebook feed and I come crossed this sponsored post. Those two people filling the ethnic minority gap for Spartan Race look familiar....
