Over the past few years cons in the U.K. have got a lot bigger and a lot more frequent with new cons popping up in new places all the time. It's become more difficult (and expensive) for me to attend all of them but as Belfast Film & Comic Con was close to The Dad's birthday and on our half term break it came as the perfect excuse for a weekend trip there.
Ser Barristan (Ian McElhinney) signed my Game of Thrones map and as I was dressed as Daenerys that day I couldn't resist getting a photoshoot done with him.
Then I met Game of Thrones artist Will Simpson and talked all things Game of Thrones, comics and places we should visit around Northern Ireland which I'll totally keep in mind for next time as I definitely want to do a Game of Thrones tour next time I'm over there.
He had some great prints for sale and I was tempted to get a Daenerys one seeing as I was dressed as her but of course I went for Jon Snow because you all know I'm a Stark at heart and I have a soft spot for the big white wolf.
There were some great photo ops around the con including this life-sized Jabba display which was awesome, a Gollum statue and a Jurassic Park set-up which I was hella tempted by but as you had to pay for photos I didn't bother and instead spent my money on comics...as usual! As this was its first year it wasn't too busy and I enjoyed getting the extra time to talk to the guests rather than being rushed though the queue, I was only there for a day but I had fun being Daenerys and who knows maybe I'll go back there next year.
