Collectormania! [Feb. 24th, 2008|06:39 pm]
tasabian
Welcome to all the new folks on my friends-list! (I should mention that while this journal is mostly used for posting Clex-fic, occasionally I do venture into Special Hell and write RPS, featuring those irresistably hot CW boys. So feel very free to skip those entries if that isn't your thing!)

It looks like I'm going to be able to go to Collectormania in the UK this spring. I'm already going to be in Europe visiting a friend and flights to Heathrow seem plentiful and affordable! Rosenbaum will be attending - and though he's my entire reason for going - I'm excited that James Marsters will be there as well.

I've never been to a Con of any kind before so this will be a brand new experience! Tips from experienced Con-goers will be very welcome.

Oh, and if you love Clex and haven't seen Talitha78's gorgeous new video yet....you must, you must! I've watched it ten times already:

We'll have to exchange details beforehand. Are you staying in a hotel the night before?

Yes, my intent is to come down on the Friday before and stay 'til the Sunday or Monday, depending on when the Rosey photo sessions happen.

I'm hoping to confirm flights this week & then start looking at hotels. *excited*

Cool! I recommend the Ramada Encore hotel. It's 5 miunutes walk from the con and is really nice. I stayed there last year and am already booked in for this year. Some pics here if you're interested

Ooh, good to know. I'll hopefully have my plans solidified by next week and we can make arrangements to meet up then!

Oh yay!! You're going to Collectormania! My friend Jo is going, too! She lives an hour away from the venue!

She was supposed to come to the states for the Hockey Challenge, but sadly could not.

Oddly, it's easier for me to get to England than Seattle! Lucky Jo, only an hour away!

I'm trying to work up the courage to go to Collectormania - I've never been to a conn before and I'm a shy scaredy cat - because I really want to see MR in person, so glad to hear that I might not be the only newbie! I know a couple of my f-listies are planning on going too.

I'm a total newbie - and will probably feel like an advanced-in-years newbie! If you decide to go & want to meet up, let me know.
