Over the past few years I have found myself buying a new Christmas jumper, mainly for Christmas Day each year and have gone for film related ones in recent times. Although rather disappointing when hardly anyone actually knew that my Golden Girls jumper was in fact the Golden Girls. You can get some outstanding ones now which is why I decided to put together this blog post to highlight just how amazing some of the Christmas jumpers are and they appeal to pretty much every single fandom! Whatever you love the most you are guaranteed to find a jumper for that somewhere!
You can get a lot that are in sweatshirt style but I still personally prefer the proper trashy jumper style and when you add in film they really do have some great levels of detail on them.
Today is World Book Day and what better way to celebrate on a film blog than putting together a list of 7 films that are based on books? I thought it was a great idea too, the thing with the list though is that I have to have read the book and seen the film for it to make the list.
Devon Murray was well and truly part of the Harry Potter crew playing Seamus Finnigan in all of the films! With him being a smaller guest in terms of numbers for the photoshoot he was able to chat a little bit more, he told me I was dressed appropriately for the venue (it was so hot and I was wearing shorts and a vest). He was also involved with scarves and wands with the people in front of me!
Since my announcement post back in March (here) I have spent a lot of time glued to the Showmasters forum and Twitter feed for any more announcement of guests that I would just love to meet and gaining understanding of how a Comic Con works. It does sound totally nuts at times but I am sure I can survive and work it all out!
I have now booked more photoshoots to go along with the Jason Momoa and I am now going on the Saturday as well!
Big news yesterday was the launch of the new Harry Potter ride at Universal in Florida. Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure. Which does look rather epic in all honesty, the wait time for the ride reached a massive 600 minutes!
Brand new releases from Lego so with being in London I queued to get in the Lego shop and decided to buy a few. I had started by trying to see if I could work out who Dumbledore was . . . But after a few minutes I decided to just go full on pot luck and picked four different packets.
A fantastic day trip on Monday to Alnwick Castle where different scenes in Harry Potter were filmed, they also have a broomstick lesson which was certainly a lot of fun for us adults as well as kids, luckily the group we ended up in had more adults! The photo and video taking with the broomsticks afterwards was very amusing and as you can see we have done well to recreate Harry Potter!
The official trailer for a new Harry Potter game which will be hitting iOS and Android devices, as a mobile game. I briefly remember hearing something that was going to come in a similar format to Pokemon Go, but this certainly looks a little bit different.
