Happy Geek Pride Day!

Happy Geek Pride Day to all fellow geeks out there! *waves* I love all things Superhero, sci-fi, games – and my love for yarn and crochet is definitely geeky!

I’ve been quiet for a little while because last weekend I went to my first superhero convention! I went to The City Of Heroes in Birmingham, and I’ve spent the rest of this week recovering!

There were some amazing guests – here are the autographs we collected:

Autograph collection
From top left –

~ Both middle pictures are from The Flash TV show:

~ Jason Momoa – About to be Aquaman in the new movie (and will be introduced in the new movie Batman v Superman) but also Ronon Dex from Stargate Atlantis, Conan from Conan The Barbarian, and Khal Drogo from Game Of Thrones

Awesome right?! The weekend was full of talks by all the guests, autographs, photoshoots and more! It was a great first convention to go to, and we’ve already booked next years tickets! Our top stars of this one were Brandon Routh and Stephen Amell ^_^

Have you done anything geeky recently? Who would you most like to meet? (could be anyone, not necessarily from tv!)
