Sucked in!

Posted on

Well I’ve done exactly what I said I wouldn’t do and made a Pinterest account. As if I wasn’t wasting enough time on various sites I now have that extra worry about finding that perfect picture to add to my boards. So now I’m probably looking a little bit stupid after slating social networking sites on a previous blog post entitled ‘To Pinterest or not to Pinterest’ย and considering I now use facebook a lot more since I wrote that blog too.

I only joined late last night but already have an impressive array of pictures of ‘True Blood’, ‘the Vampire Diaries’ and Les Miserables cast members. The best thing is I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing.ย So if you are even remotely interested you can check out my pinterest page HEREย and if any of you are using pinterest please leave a link to your page in the comments below.

10 Items of Awesomeness

Posted on

So this is something that I have seen people on vlog about on YouTube. Basically you share 10 items from your room/house that may mean something personal to you and you explain them. Now as I’m always thinking of new things to write about I thought I would take this idea and blog about it. Anyone can give it a go.

Item 1

My Ball Joint doll Malaki

Malaki was given to me by my friend Zoe who collects ball joint dolls, this was one of the oldest dolls in her collection. She made the clothes he is wearing. He currently sits on a shelf next to my bedroom lamp.

Item 2

My Pop! Heroes Superman Vinyl Figure

Just Vinyl toys in general as I collect them but I chose to post my Superman because he is my favourite superhero. I’ve been a big ‘New adventures of Superman’ and ‘Smallville’ fan for years.

Item 3

My Alex Winter Signed picture

Alex Winter signed this when I met him at the London Film and Comic Con this year. It was a dream come true meeting someone from my favourite film of all time ‘The Lost Boys’. Now just have to work on Keefer Sutherland ๐Ÿ˜›

Item 4

Dan from ‘The Used’s’ Drum Stick

This was rescued by my friend Mandy after it had been thrown into the crowd at the Evanescence gig I went to recently at Wembley Arena. ‘The Used’ were on as the support act.

Item 5

Grumpy Angus

Grumpy Angus is made by a talented guy from the website Forgotten Forest. He sits comfortably at the end of my bed and he’s very well-behaved despite his looks ๐Ÿ™‚

Item 6

Hypnotic Poison by Dior

This is my favourite perfume, it reminds me of a friend that I don’t see very often. It smells amazing.

Item 7

My handmade sock monster

This was bought for me by my brother and sister in-law while they were walking around the little shops and boutiques in Greenwich. Its made out of socks and sits at the end of my bed keeping Grumpy Angus company.

Item 8

My ‘True Blood’ t-shirt

I bought this from one of the stall at the Entertainment Media show in London this year. It’s one of my favourite Vampire series’s. I’m trying not to put it on too often so I don’t wear it out ๐Ÿ˜›

Item 9

Snape’s Wand

I bought professor Snape’s wand while on a trip to the Harry Potter Studio tour earlier this year. Snape is my favourite Harry Potter character. I was so sad when he met his demise ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Item 10

My Masquerade mask

I love masquerade masks… this is a handmade mask from the website Masked Boutique who make a range of different masks for all occasions. Masquerade balls always remind me of a scene from the film ‘Labyrinth’.

Bitten 3 Guests

Here’s my photo-shoot pics from the convention. All the guests were lovely and we got to have a good chat to them during the two drinks receptions that were held.

Bitten 3 Weekend

Posted on

Over the past couple of weeks I had been preparing for the Bitten 3 True Blood convention, making sure I had my costumes for the themed parties to ensure I looked the part for the long weekend away at the Park Inn, Northampton. The event was held at the weekend just gone and I can honestly say I had the most amazing time. I won’t go too much into detail because I shall be writing a review about it, so I’ll stick to the more personal side of it. I met my friends at Euston station where we made our way to Northampton together. I had met Maxine and Sam previously through my friend Mandy and once at the hotel I met two other people who they knew and I made friends with.

As well as meeting True Blood guests and getting autographs and photo’s of them, we had the most awesome parties. Friday nights themed party was Merlottes Halloween party where we could basically dress up as anything we wanted. I found a great scary clown costume on Amazon and I was eager to wear it that night. The costume went down well and I received some lovely comments from the con goers.

The hall was decked out with skeletons and other amusing bits and bobs. The party went on until the early hours. My head felt a little fuzzy the next day but I powered on through photo shoots and autographs. Saturday nights party was themed around Fangtasia, the vampire and human nightclub from the show. So we donned our best corsets and partied hard yet again ๐Ÿ™‚

The last party on the Sunday night was ‘Fellowship of the Sun’ themed, a group against vampires… so I bought myself ย some fake vampire killing weapons to protect everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

Overall I had a fab time spending time with new friends, True Blood stars and people who have the same interest as me. Unfortunately this Bitten Convention was the last but I’m excited to see what else Massive events come up with next.

My First London Film and Comic Con

Posted on

I’ve been wanting to go to one of these for a few years now but never got around to it. If I’m honest my first experience was a little disappointing due to the poor organisation of the event. I spent most of my time waiting around and queuing and I only had 3 photo-shoots booked so I don’t know how people only going for the day managed to do more than that and some talks as well. I didn’t even get much time to look around all of the stalls but the ones that I did see were really good with items being reasonably priced. I bought 4 mounted pictures of True Blood and the Vampire Diaries at ยฃ5 each and a Lost Boys mug at ยฃ5. In a way I’m glad I didn’t look at much as I would have spent a fortune on things that I didn’t essentially need.

I liked my photo shoot pictures though and I was most excited about meeting Alex Winter of ‘Bill and Ted’ and ‘The lost Boys’ fame especially as The Lost Boys is my favourite film of all time. Another impressive guest was Gillian Anderson… I used to be a big X-Files fan back in the day. And as I am currently working my way through Heroes, I had to have a photo taken with Hayden Panetierre ๐Ÿ™‚

As LFCC had been moved to Kensington Olympia this year, its understandable that things were a little out of sorts for them. Having to organise an event like this must be incredibly difficult, especially when it involves having to get hold of guests. They certainly pulled that off really well as there were an array of guests to please everyone. Depending on next years guests I would definitely give it another go at Earls Court.

A quick visit to blogsville

Posted on

I know, I know… I haven’t been here for a while but I apologise for that! I have no excuse but the fact that I really haven’t been up to much lately and didn’t really want to bore anyone with my meaningless waffling! I just wanted to let you know I haven’t forgotten about sherylsbloggyblog and I have lots of things that I want to write about in the future. At the moment all is quiet on the life front and while its been cold I have enjoyed some nights in watching seasons 1 to 3 of True Blood which I have become an instant fan of. I am now currently working my way through season 1 of Heroes and I plan to get my hands on ‘The Circle’, ‘Walking Dead’ and ‘Being Human’. I whole heartedly admit that I am a complete geek and proud of it ๐Ÿ™‚

As I sit here watching Kerrang I’m feeling excited about a couple of gigs I’ve got booked to see ‘Lost Prophets’ and ‘The Used’ which I’m sure you’ll hear about at some point. I watched ‘Daybreakers’ today which is an awesome film and positioned at number 17 in SFX magazines special vampires edition for the 25 greatest vampire movies on the planet… you will have to buy the magazine to find out what number 1 is but I wasn’t disappointed with the result. Anyway… I’ll be back soon, I promise!
