    So I went to SFX today, and met a few people. Billy Dee Williams wasn't very nice to me, but he WAS nice to my girlfriend.......go figure.....

    Nichelle Nicoles was there, Agent Spender (chris Owens), John Billingsley (Dr, Phlox), and two people from Buffy that I didn't care about.



    Anyone else make it up? Get anything cool?

    I met The Great One once, but I was a baby. Of course, being a baby, and being a European just here in Canada meeting my grandparents (they're the ones that recognized him when we saw the Oilers at the airport), I didn't know who the guy was and neither did my parents, so it wasn't too thrilling at the time. Meeting celebrities sure is cool though. :)

    There's my showing off for the day. ;)

    Anyway, yes, this post does have a point. I wanted to ask what else we missed at SFX.

    As is my understanding, SFX is unlike any other con; it's one giant dealer's room. To give you a sense of scale, it's in one section of the Metro Convention centre. (Basically, it's a room the size of about 4 football fields, with dealer tables taking up 75% of it....the other 25% are for artists, promotions, talent, and signings.)

    As for the Buffy people, you had to pay to talk with them and have something signed, and there was an entrance fee for the con, obviously, but there was not a separate room for them or anything.

    Oh yeah. Brent Spiner was there, but he doesn't do public signings, or Q&A or anything, so we didn't see him.

    Sorry, I don't have pictures from the event. Maybe next time.

    And lastly, there were these two women, barely dressed, promoting a new Barbarella show or something.....after being told it was ok for me to meet them (and yes, I needed my girlfriend's permission :p ) I went eagerly to their booth, but alas, it was not meant to be. :( They had gone for coffee.

    Anyhoo, that's the low-dow. I also checked a few sites with lists of cons in Canada, and I couldn't find anything in London. Strange.....

    Ah cool!

    No I don't think there will ever be a con in London.

    Anyone know any celebrities?

    The 2 girls in spimpy clothing? My favorite booth/exhibit. lol
    I went back to the booth a couple times. :)
    They were advertising for...uh....something...uh...FutureClub I think...Yeah, that's it...
    Free pictures taken with them. $10 for an autographed poster. Best $10 I ever spent...
    the long line ups for SFX were worth it once I saw them...lol

    Hello Londoners, Allow myself to introduce...myself...I'm Andrew A.K.A. Cranie. SFX was my first con, I was there as Palpetine. Not alot of Star Wars there, kinda of disappointing. Tons of Anime, also disappointing. I got some pictures, I'll post a link once I get the webpage working. I came with YJN and had a good time with TLL and 501st...Unless you love anime, you didn't miss much.
