Just got back from the Otherworlds Convention in Warrington and what a fun convention it was. Hard to believe that this was its debut considering the decent venue, amazing guests (including me!!) and the varied selection of traders.
I had a great weekend getting my music out to new ears as well as mingling and meeting some really cool people.
It was fun to hang out with the likes of author Adam Millard and makeup effects artist Mike Dargan, both really nice guys.
There was a vast selection of talks on both days of the convention and on Sunday I joined Mike Dargan and award winning filmmaker Chris Stone for the Hollywood or Bust panel where we discussed our influences and what got us into the movie industry – it was a fun Q&A and will be on Youtube soon so I will post it here when it’s available.
I was lucky enough to have amazing portraits taken by professional photographer’s Alan Donoghue and Mandy Norman wearing some groovy Steampunk clothing from the awesome www.phazeclothing.com – take a look at them below.
I also got to hang out with stormtroopers, a Jedi and Indiana Jones, all from the UK Garrison as well as a hoard of marauding zombies from ZED Events – great, great fun !
This was a good debut from a new convention that has so much potential – I will see you all there in 2015.
