MCM Comic Con Liverpool- several shoots, a panel, and lots of walking round!

So I survived my first two-day Comic Con event last weekend, and worked on a few videos, even though with so much going on, I know I missed a few. Still, Doctor Who/Star Wars/RWBY and the Saturday Masquerade were all good, as well as my Superclark 3 shoot!

I also went for a drink with Darth Vader and few others on Saturday, which was a bit bizarre, but fun.

It was packed, crowded and a bit claustrophobic, especially the Sunday, so I left early, missing out on seeing the Attack On Titan cast, but ah well, another time perhaps. I’ve posted Doctor Who/Rwby/Sherlock and Star Wars on Youtube and might work on the other three. Oh and do the rest of the pictures too, if I get the chance!

Events- Liverpool MCM COMIC CON 2017- SUPERCLARK 3- Coming Soon!

DSCF0126So after two dozen Comic book Conventions/meetups and photoshoots last year, I’m off to the third event of 2017- MCM Comic Con-Liverpool, for BOTH days, not just one like last year.

Ellesmere Port Comic Con was great, I’m still working on photos, but getting EPCC and the Liverpool Cosplay Meet in January videos edited and uploaded was epic in itself. I made three versions of LCM with different music. The version uploaded featured Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale from Halestorm and ‘Shatter me’. If that didn’t work, as backup I had Nami Kichi’s Cover versions of Brave Shine from Fate Stay/Night and Ignite from Sword Art Online 2.

For EPCC it was a general vid of the event and 360 shoot, then a video of the Cosplay Contest.

It was a comment off Ironman at EP that made me think I need to make another attempt at Superman/Clark Kent, so I have been planning a bit in advance, which makes a change from making things up as I go along like I normally do!

Anyway, that is the plan- Saturday Clark Kent, roving Reporter for the Daily Planet will be around, and then on Sunday I’ll need to find a Jimmy Olsen to film me doing my Super-thing!

Should be FUN!

Thanks also to Thomas Hulks as Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash!

COSDAY 4- My Cosday Will Go On- 300TH VIDEO!

Year of the monkey!

Well, this has been a bit different. Tidying, sorting, recycling revising old stories and CV, catching up on stuff, seeing Rogue 1 twice and planning Dr. Rrr Series 2.

In the midst of all that, I have even begun sorting photos and clips from last few hikes and compiled a compilation of the two dozen Comic Cons/Cosplay meets and events from 2016.

 

It’s been an awesome journey, trying out new things, especially Anime- Attack on Titan etc and learning new things/expanding my Cultural horizons. Chinese New Year was awesome, it’s still the Year of the Monkey, and a right cheeky one it has been!

Recently I’ve become fascinated and even captivated by the concept of Bunraku- Japanese Puppetry, something akin to Thunderbirds-style, indeed Starfleet was an 80’s Bunraku that was even more popular in the West than in Japan- it was a shame a fire destroyed the original puppets though. Thunderbolt Fantasy is a Taiwan-based show and something I’d like to emulate at some point- after Series 2 of Dr. Rrr though!

Anyway, 300 videos. Ever changing-ever learning, My Cosday will go on!

Events- FOR THE LOVE OF SCI-FI COSPLAY SHOOT

15107379_10209735684622581_4515850338791953191_n-copyIt’s been a yet another manic Sunday as I headed off on an epic journey to Trafford Park in Manchester for the inaugural FOR THE LOVE OF SCI-FI weekend at Bowlers Exhibition Centre.

A bit further out of my way than usual with a stroll near the Bridgewater canal along a stretch I didn’t do in my epic hike two years ago from Runcorn to Manchester, but it was a very nice day, if a bit on the chilly side of the Force (but not Hoth-cold, if you get what I mean!)

From just-after sunrise to just-before sunset I got 360 pictures and video footage. Going through that was epic enough, cutting 45 and looking at what could make it into a video. Here’s a taster- something that’s not your average Cosplay Contest- there wasn’t one, but an epic Star Wars themed shoot as Uncle George corralled as many Cosplayers as possible into a corner. I immediately found the best vantage point, practically invading the stage, but the results were well-worth the effort.

I also noticed it was a bit Christmassy- several Leia’s and Han’s, Eight Stormtroopers, Six Jawas, a few Bounty Hunters, Three Imperial Royal Guards, Two Tie Fighter Pilots and Scout Troopers, One Wookie/Moff Tarkin/Darth Vader/Darth Maul/Lando and an R2D2 rolling up late! (But not in a Pear tree it has to be said!)

So just need to edit/process the pictures and make a video- no pressure there then! Think it’ll be later in the week, still haven’t finished sorting Wholock photos from LAST weekend- oops, better get my skates on like Yuri then!

 

Thanks to George for directing the Troops!

Thanks to Delroy, Camille and all the Cosplayers!

 

Thanks to the Andy and the Organisers for putting on an AWESOME event!

700th Blogpost- Events- Rozanne Bell Exhibition @Unicorn Gallery, Widnes

030It can be interesting sometimes when you pass by places on the bus or train and something reaches out and grabs your attention by the jugular.

A sign on the window of Unicorn Gallery said ‘Meet celebrated artist Rozanne Bell’. Since I hadn’t the foggiest who she was, I googled her, found her website and was amazed by the quality and scope of her artwork.

Greeted enthusiastically by her dog Hector and a glass of mulled wine, I stepped out of my comfort zone and into a whole other universe- Fine Art, very fine indeed as I examined a couple of paintings. The Meadows one stood out.

I asked Rozanne about a couple of details, mainly her use of glitter, as it tends to get everywhere when I use it, but in her pictures, it is very fine and expertly applied. She said she sprays it on, but if I tried that, I’d probably get it in my hair and everywhere but the picture! The Meadow full of flowers was intrically woven together, as with all her paintings, a mixture of layered images, made up of glitter, resin, oils, inks, gessos, gold and silver leaf, all vibrantly mixed and organised in an iconic and unique way. So unique that each painting is slightly varied, maybe in colour or slight change of detail, but no two are exactly the same.

Her other works on show include Wildflower Beach, Bejewelled skies over windmill, Red lane and many other pieces. I have to say I really like Starry night with its full, yellow/orange moon over the bay. The moons in her pictures are much more impressive than the so-called Super moons I’ve seen recently, but that’s just me!

Looking around the Gallery, I saw some other interesting pieces by artists like Steven Scholes, Paul Ehlen, Joan Puerto and Gisela Ueberall, particularly upstairs. Rozanne Bell’s Exhibition is still on for another week until the 26th November. Prices range from £515- £1295.

An interesting glimpse into a versatile and very imaginative Artist. Rozanne is off to Tavistock Picture Framing Galleries in Devon next week with New York and several other prints.

Unicorn Gallery, Widnes is open 9AM-5PM (Closed Sunday and Thursday)-
