London Comic Con Spring 2020

Last week on Saturday I attended London Comic Con Spring. It was very similar to The London Film & Comic Con being it was organised by the same company Showmasters and was the same venue at Olympia but did differ in some ways. It was far smaller for instance and didn't make use of the full hall.

I cosplayed as Tom Baker's Dr Who and met a lot of other Dr Who cosplayers. I already suspected there'd be a lot of Dr Who cosplayers on account of the Dr Who actors that were attending, albeit with some of them cancelling before the event. In fact there were a lot of cancellations.

I met Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy and got their autographs. I also met some professional cosplayers getting their autographs as well as photos. Ironically even though I had people taking photos of me in my cosplay I had neglected to take any of myself.

The James Bond Aston Martin was on display. Whether it was the original car or just for display I wasn't sure. It was covered with scratches along its sides but I suspected they were painted on.

I was a little miffed that there was no DVD stall or anime comic stand which was often the case at other conventions. I did purchase Japanese sweets as well as a comic called The Rabbit along with other bits and bobs of memorabilia. I particularly liked the framed art of Lara Croft.
