Last weekend was full to the brim with barely a moment to just stop and breathe. Fun, though.

There was a small expo at the local library on Saturday, called Imagine - the theme was science fiction and fantasy and they invited local clubs to attend in costume. It was fun wandering around being greeted by Gandalf, and Death, and various Starfleet officers. And more Storm Troopers than you could poke a stick at, although why you'd risk poking a stick at a Storm Trooper I'm not quite sure *g*.

If you ducked down you could see the feet of the bloke inside this - clever costume all the same. He even had the evil voice down pat.

The stargate was at the top of the stairs, at the entrance to the library. Of course, if you took the lift, you had a ride in a TARDIS -

Even evil aliens bent on world domination need love.

Best bit of the day? When the Klingon bumped into me, and apologised. Very out of character! *g*
I was thinking I might look the Star Trek group up, see what they do. I haven't belonged to anything like that for years and years and it could be fun.

That's brilliant - love the lift! Why aren't all lifts offered like that? Hee for dalek feet... *g* What a very cool thing for a library to do - I've never seen anything like that over here (not that they can afford extras like that these days, we're lucky they're open at all...)

Oh I agree, all lifts should be decorated like that! I was surprised to find out just how many additional services the library offered - lots of activities for people of all ages.

Sounds like fun!

It was totally fun, there was a small orchestra playing the themes from sci fi shows as well, and a talk on costume design and creation from a guy dressed as Gimli. Awesome.

Wasn't it just, it was really fun. Some of the costumed people went out onto the footpath and were waving at cars going by; I wonder what the drivers were thinking!

Oh no I didn't know that! I do like him. Have you watched "Extras"? He's one of the guests in one episode, really funny.

Very cool! Love the dalek and the stargate!

Weren't they brilliant! The dalek was buzzing around all day; it was funny to see the lift, decorated as a TARDIS, open up to disgorge a Dalek!

What a great event. You should definitely look into that group, if only because it might put you in touch with other fannish types. :D

I think I will, mainly because I used to be involved in a Star Trek group years and years ago, and it was a lot of fun.
Of course, other fannish types would be a bonus *g*.
