Hulkbuster

So after a 2 month (almost 3 month) hiatus while I rushed to create my Hulkbuster for London Film and Comic Con (LFCC) I'm back! So what better to start back with than a post about LFCC and how I got on with my grand ambition of creating a Hulkbuster. Making the Hulkbuster Originally I planned to start making the Hulkbuster from January until July which would give me just enough time to make it perfect. That did not happen... I started in May and just about finished to a standard that I was happy to take out into the world. Made primarily from cardboard and foam matts the finished cosplay was a massive 8 feet tall. As I'm not some sort of giant this means I was on stilts for this cosplay. Knowing from the start that I wanted ...

In a desperate rush to fill those spaces of time in my future where I don't yet know how busy I'll be I have managed to get myself into 4 different festival/conventions that I will be looking to write about. Some of them I have been to before while others are a wild roll of the dice. The kicker is that this is just in the next month or so with even more events to follow afterwards and my Hulkbuster still to restart. Most would say I should probably give up on one or two of these events and concentrate on my hulkbuster but I say that wouldn't be as fun. In my opinion all of these events are too good to pass up and even though it will be a struggle to fit them all in it will ...

LFCC 2014

Most people who go to conventions such as London Film and Comic Con go for the guests or the cosplay and some even go just to meet people who are just like them. Everyone can agree though that they all like to go to see what merchandise they can get from the convention that they can't find anywhere else. There were some amazing stalls there from big retailers like Forbidden Planet to small independents. However what I loved to see were the artists who were mixed in with the dealers and the comic book artists who were all in EC1. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to talk to a few of them and even get the contact details of a few of them. One massive surprise was meeting the artist of a piece of artwork that I ...

Stan Lee

As you've probably realised from my previous post or the title of this one, LFCC was a very special convention indeed. With the cultural phenomenon that is Stan Lee not only being the main attraction for it this year, but with it also being his last ever European convention appearance! Who is Stan Lee For those who somehow have lived in a box avoiding any sort of pop culture Stan Lee is one of the fewnay, none of his peers have been able to do in escaping the comic community to become a world wide pop culture icon! More recognisable than the artists Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko; with whom he co-created Marvel icons such as Spider-Man, The X-Men, Iron Man and Thor. Stan has been able to transcend from being just their writer to being the celebrity and cherished ...

London Film and Comic Con Summer

This summer's London Film and Comic Convention has just finished and what a convention it was. I don't think I've ever geeked out as much as I did in those 3 days of epicness. As those who have been reading my blog up until this point you will know that I was really looking forward to going to this ever since I bought my tickets. It did not disappoint. The largest event of it's kind in Europe it took on the lofty task of being the final European convention that Stan Lee (yes that Stan Lee) would ever attend. This effectively made it more popular this year than organisers could have predicted. Even with the event spread across 2 halls at London's Earls Court, there were still hundreds (if not thousands) of people who were unable to avoid this jam ...

TV Trev

I've been a bit absent as of late trying to finish costumes for London Film and Comic Con, which starts today and ends Sunday. I've also been busy training for tough mudder. But most importantly I've been busy doing photo-shoots with Androo Stain to give my blog, Twitter and Facebook (when it decides to work for me) page a more polished, personal feel and long overdue update! I'd already updated my personal Facebook page with the images before and teased the initial video. However now that both projects have been officially finished I can finally post the hi-res versions along with the amazing videos that Androo has put together on how he went about making them. Check the videos out below and let me know what you think about the new look. In an odd coincidence I got my hair ...
