Good evening you beautiful people!
Today I was involved in a whole different kind of modelling. I was a character from the Avatar film helping entertain everyone at Nor-Con, NORWICH SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION at Holiday Inn @ the airport.
Nor-con is an amazing annual science fiction convention, raising money for amazing causes, this years being Nelsons Journey. The event includes cosplayers, traders, celebrities, lookalikes, children and grownups galore and brings in thousands of people each year!
On arrival at the event dressed in my Avatar costume, I was greeted by the most incredibly warm welcome! Mark Dean and his beautiful wife (the organisers) were buzzing around like busy bees making sure everything was running smoothly and on putting my things in the green room, I took to the crowd and the morning was a blur of photo taking, celebrity meeting, hug giving, and being astounded by such incredible effort and stunning, and jaw dropping costumes!
There were a large array of Sci-fi celebs gracing the event, and among them was, Colin Baker (Dr Who), Terry Molloy (Davros), Robert Llewellynn (Red Dwarf), Adam Millard (Horror Author), Virginia Hey (Farscape), Lee Sullivan (Artist) and the handsome and rather wonderful Fwah Storm (Author and Illustrator of Jericho and all round kickass guy!)
I have to say that I have never met such an incredible lineup of celebs, who, in reality are this kind, down to earth, complimenting, chatty and friendly!
Among the wonderful cosplayers, there was Dr Who’s, daleks, Princess Leia, Stormtroopers, Trekkies, Clingons, Jack Sparrow (yum!), and way way more, including my personal favourite and close friend the Green Power Ranger!!!!
All in all it was a jaw dropping, whirlwind adventure which quenched my geeky thirst and left me wanting more!
I suggest next year, you all book the date in your diaries, its an incredible event, with awesome people and stunning celebs!
Please enjoy the pictures from my day
Til next time xx
