Bournemouth Film & Comic Con 2015

I attended my first Film & Comic Con event over this weekend and all I can say is what an atmosphere. While I am not one to dress up in cosplay I couldn’t believe some of the costume people bought to the show. While my personal favourites were the Walking Dead ones, I bumped into a Daryl Dixon and saw a Ricky Grimes stalking the walkers. There was a Baymax along with the string of usual comic book characters, I did loss count of how many Deadpools I saw.

I couldn’t help but find myself wondering just how many Funko Pops the world has created with nearly ten stands of just Funko Pops. Autographed photo stands were plenty too but at least each one offered so much range. The one that appealed to me most is the T-shirt stands because I love me a good t-shirt and I picked up two,

I wanted to get myself the Daryl Dixon shirt but they didn’t have my size 🙁

I did get myself a Walking Dead mug because this photo is just plan cool.cup

One of the biggest highlights for me was the DeLoren being there and off cause I had to get myself inside the time machine like the one in a film I’ve seen.scan0028DSCF3461

Having three halls of guest with one being the sports stars which I avoided, the two I went to I got to meet Hardcore Bob Holly the former WWE wrestler who was one of the toughest in the business and actually looked like he wanted to beat people up, a former hardcore Champion.scan0023

As the film fan that I am I went here to meet the actors of some of my favourite films and shows. I had to pop over to meet Hodor from Game of Thrones just because of how I used to communicate with a friend at work by saying Hodor in different tones and my God he is huge.scan0025

The main reason why I had to go to this event was Robert Englund he is one of the true horror icons and after last years brilliant The Last Showing I got the opportunity to get Robert and Finn Jones to sign my copy of this brilliant film, all I need now is Emily Berrington and I have the three main character signed on one film.scan0029

Lets face it Robert Englund is most famous for Freddy Krueger and I had to take my collection of Nightmare on Elm Street which I got signed along with his first victim Tina (Amanda Wyss).scan0032DSCF3462

The best is saved for last where I met Amanda first and got this photo signed, I went over to Robert who had all the fans where he left the message, ‘you’re next after this bitch‘ which I think is the most epic autograph signing I have.scan0027

Overall this was one hell off a day out and when I go again I will look to go with a group of people to increase the banter level, but this was one day I won’t be forgetting for a long time.


  1. Conventions are s much fun! I always go to one near where I live called the Motorcity Comicon which comes around every May. I usually dress up like Hunter S Thompson. (It’s a riot!)
