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!
So, you're going to comic con.. Well done! I'm sure you'll love it. Today we will give you some tips about how to attend a panel/ Q&A. We have attended multiple panels at multiple conventions. We have quite some experiences. And there are definitely some things to keep in mind.
When you want to get an autograph, photo op or anything else at a convention, you might wonder: How does this work exactly?
Well, that's what we are for! We'll help you through all the steps! If you also want to know more about getting an autograph or a photo op, make sure to check our articles about that as well. Everything you need to know is in there.
But here, we talk about panels! I always love to attend panels and I do it as much as possible at conventions. It gives you an opportunity to ask the actors/ actress/ artist etc a question. But it also gives you the opportunity to just listen to all the questions that are being asked and get to know them a bit better.
Every panel is different and every convention is different. I've seen panels that were just about 1 movie the actor played in. I've also attended panels where the questions where much more personal, where people were dancing and singing! It is what you make of it (and what's allowed of course).
Check out our tips below to make the most out of your panel experience! Here's for starters a nice video of some dancing by Rick Cosnett at his Panel at Arccon.
In December 2016, we went to Dutch X-Mas Con in Utrecht. I was really excited that Sibel would be a guest. I know her for playing Shae in Game of Thrones. And as a big fan of Game of Thrones I'm always delighted when a convention asks someone from the cast to come over. And Sibel wasn't the only GOT guest: James Cosmo (who Plays Jeor Mormont) was also a guest at the comic con! Yes! We love Game of Thrones guests! We were very excited to go to Dutch Xmas Con but we only had one day, so we had a very busy day ahead.
Remember Shae? Shae was a prostitute in Game of Thrones. She began a relationship with Tyrion Lannister. Shae and Tyrion meet when Tyrion is fighting with the Lannister Army in the Riverlands. After a victory in the Battle of the Green Fork, Tyrion is made Hand of the King and he has to return to King's Landing. Tywinn forbids Tyrion to take Shae back with him, but he defies this order and sneeks her into King's Landing. I loved her character in Game of Thrones. She's so awesome! Tyrion and Shae grow closer together. Even though Shae seems a bit cynical and sharp at the beginning. You get the idea that they really care about each other. She disguises herself as a handmaiden for Sansa Stark so she can be close to Tryion. She also starts to care for Sansa and gives her some genuine advice. We see Shae develop during the seasons. I agree Shae is a very loveable charachter. Tyrioon is my favorite character in Game of Thrones, because he is fair and genuine. He has a good heart and that's what makes him stand out in the Lannister Family and makes him the black sheep of the family. When he meets Shae, he finally seems to meet someone that really loves him for the person he is. For the ones who haven't seen everything of Game of Thrones yet, we won't discuss what happens in season 4!
Sibel is actually a German actress. Her family is from Turkish origin. She also plays a role in Tatort, a German crime series. Besides that, you might also know her for her roles in Die Fremde (When We Leave), Gegen Die Wand (Head -On) and Winterreise (Winter Journey). As part of my preparation for Dutch Xmas Con I watched "Die Fremde" and I have to say it's a very impressive movie. (I already talked about this movie in our post about "Movies we watched in December", so check that one out to see what it's about).
We were walking around at Dutch X-Mas Con, when we saw the stand of the Ghostbusters Dutch Division. It wasn't the first time that we saw them at a convention. We are all huge "Ghostbusters" fans, so this definitely caught our attention. So this time we decided to have a talk. We asked if we could interview them by sending over a couple of questions via
e-mail. They instantly agreed! And we are happy to present this article to you today. It will give you a lot of insights in the activities of the Ghostbusters Dutch Division. We love it!
Let's start at the very beginning by introducing you to this awesome group:
A new year has begun! Well, Conmose started in 2016. But we will continue to write and grow in 2017! We're looking forward to year of awesome movies, series, comic cons and meeting lots of new people. So let us share our plans, thoughts and goals with you today!
2016 was an AMAZING convention year. We met some many awesome actors. At the beginning of the year, I had no clue of how great it was going to be! We started with Walker Stalker Con London in February. And that was an unbelievable start. It was amazing to meet Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, Sarah Wayne Callies and Josh McDermitt. And we saw Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln and much more actors from the Walking Dead. Today we're looking back on the actors we've met during 2016. We'll share our top memories with you and we will also show you which articles about meeting a specific actor or actress were the most popular on Conmose. Next year we will meet many many more actors. And we are already looking forward to it. We are so excited. 2016 is a beautiful year to look back to. And we're excited to think about the opportunities 2017 will have for us! That's just so true, I for one have met some of my childhood heroes this year. But other than that we met some amazing people this year and with the growing amount of conventions, 2017 will surely have a lot more in store for us. It won't be easy for me, to make a personal top 3 for you. There are just so many great memories to choose from!
