We love to go to movie/ serie conventions! On this page you can read more information about the different conventions we follow. You can read our experiences (If we went there), the latest news and guest announcements!
It's that time of the year again! It's time for a horror con. We always enjoy going to the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen in November. Same as this year. A few weeks ago we decided to go to Oberhausen for the weekend. We were at House of Horrors on Saturday and Sunday. It was a mix of exhibitors, cosplay, actors, panels, photo ops, food, drink and more!
We were mainly looking forward to watching some panels, buy some DVDs or games and talk to some awesome people again!
A few weeks ago we went to FACTS in Ghent (Belgium) and they had an amazing guest list (again). One of the guests was Karl Urban and I was very excited about this announcement. I'm a big fan of the "Lord of the Rings"- trilogy, so I was glad to get a chance to meet the actor behind the character of Éomer. Of course Urban played in a lot of other great movies, but we'll talk more about that later. Since Sigmund and Carola only just got back from New York (Comic Con) they had to pass on this one, but Tristan and I packed our bags for the weekend. We decided to take the train and had to leave home very early. Since the whole trip would take approximately 3 and a half hours we left home around half past 6 a.m. Estimated time of arrival at Flanders Expo was somewhere around 10 o'clock. It all went very smoothly and the train was filled with people in costume (cosplay), also on their way to FACTS. Everything went smoothly up until Aalst (which is situated half an hour from Ghent. The train stopped and soon it became clear that an accident occurred and we would be there for quite some time. (Estimated time of arrival at Flanders Expo: later than expected but hey we had two days to spent so I was pretty optimistic). Time passed on and I think it was around 11 a.m. that we were asked to change trains. We would go to a place called Schellebelle and there we could transfer onto buses, which would bring us to Ghent. Estimated time of arrival at Flanders Expo: a whole hell of a lot later than expected but at least we were moving.
We have an interview for you with Simone van Galen. She runs a fan page for Annie. You can also find her on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr! Let's start by introducing Simone: "I’m Simone and as people call me Simy on the interwebs. Currently studying Mediadesigner MBO4 at Mediacollege Amsterdam which is an amazing school where I learn to do more in crafting and art and design which I can also use into my fan site. I have done some design things for Annie as well. I think I’m allowed to say it and if I wasn’t well I’m sure she will tell me after reading this, but before she posted the photo of her and Ritter as Mary Poppins she asked me to Photoshop the image of her. Some people believed it was real. But there are other things I do but I can’t talk about that here."
She's a big fan of Annie Wersching and she met her! She shared our story with us. And we're very happy about that! Thanks Simone for chatting with us and we're glad to work together! Let's talk about meeting Annie!
Summer is over and it's time to do some more comic cons! There's a lot of choice in the upcoming months. We gathered a few nice events for you! Let us know in the comments: Which comic cons will you be visiting? We're not sure yet!
Just a few more days and then it's time for Comic Con Amsterdam! We went last year and met some awesome guests. We met Sean Astin, James Marsters, Natalia Tena, Robert Englund and Lance Henriksen!
