Ohh, conventions, one of the most amazing things there is. This one was the first one in Munich, so it was pretty exciting to have one just a couple of minutes from home – it was hot however so even the short time in the metro was horrible. Well, the Convention was not horrible – it was so much fun, people were super nice and the guests were too. The thing was at the same weekend MCM Con in London and Mega Con and I think two more took place and Munich Con was rather small, so the guest were not Hollywood stars, but there were some amazing people from great shows and movies (like Doctor Who). It went for two days only, but that was enough, I think. We had time to enjoy the artwork and merchandise and the panels as well. There were some fantastic cosplayers and I think the hosts were great too – in Dortmund things got awkward sometimes, but the ones in Munich were well informed, charming and put everyone at ease asking interesting questions when the audience did not come up with any.
However the best part was Sylvester McCoy for sure, he was so fun and interacted with the audience – before the con I hadn’t watched any of the old Doctor Who episodes, but immediately afterwards I decided to order the first Volume of his episodes.
I’m so happy this con was a success and am excited for the next one here in Munich.
Of course, I could not leave without a few cute pieces, however this time I only went for things from the fantastic people in the artists’ alley.
