London Comic Con 2019


So we spent last weekend 26th, 27th and 28th July 2019 at Olympia London and had a fantastic time at Showmasters London film and comic con. It was the fifteenth anniversary so Showmasters pulled out all the stops with some amazing guests including Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen and Zackary Quinto to name but a few.

At previous events we had seen lots of celebs walking round so whilst we were working and were lucky to have met and had a chat with some of them. This year that didn't seem to happen. Jason Momoa was seen walking around upstairs but he wasn't stopping and chatting unfortunately. Other than that we had to find some time to pop up and do the whole meet and greet. We were not able to meet everyone we wanted unfortunately especially as we had our geeklings with us they were prioritised. Although my geeklings didnt have a clue who they were getting to meet as it was a surprise I knew WWE wrestlers were top of their list. Walking round seeing the celebs was fun, but as soon as my geeklings say Rey Mysterio they were shouting, jumping with excitement and running over to him. The excitement was obviously too much and I do apologise to anyone who was in their way, they were not stopping for anyone or anything! Rey Msyterio was lovely and had a chat with them, asked them who their favourite wrestler was (my nephew said a different wrestler - don't you just love kids) but Rey took it in his stride, immediately stopped signing the photo and looked him straight in the eyes. My nephew added that Rey was great too and one of his favourites. He was great to meet and I'm sure the memories will last with my geeklings for a long time to come. The next guest they got to meet was the lovely Matthew Lillard. My geeklings know Matthew as shaggy from scooby doo. They absolutely LOVE scooby doo to the point it is watched most days in our house one way or another. Matthew was another unbelievable man who did his shaggy voice and sent the geeklings wild. I honestly dont think my youngest quite believed it was him until that point. It was definitely a highlight of the day for them.

We did go and chat with a couple of other celebs as well, all of whom were friendly chatty and welcoming. I know some celebs have a bad reputation for being a bit withdrawn and unwelcoming but thankfully I have never experienced this at any comic con. Everyone has their bad days though.

I also took my mum with me. It was her fir
