The last weekend of September/begin October has always been my weekend. For a few years now, I’ve been going to FACTS, Belgium’s comic con, or at least one of them. There are so many of them right now that I lost count. But FACTS has been my first love, and my only one for the moment. Each time this event has been taking place, I had to go. Since last year they organize it two times a year (once around April, then in September/October). And the last one was last weekend. I went on the first of April and it has been the best day of this year so far.
This issue was bigger and better than ever. Loads of stands where you can buy things, several set pieces that have been rebuild, off course loads of Star Wars props and Harry Potter props. And off course you could meet several actors. This year FACTS welcomed Ben McKenzie, Nathan Fillion and Morena Baccarin, Amanda Tapping and Kristian Nairn (Hodor!!). Off course I had to go to some of the Q&A’s, but unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to get a signature or a picture with one of them.
There was so much to do that I didn’t get the chance to do all that FACTS could offer me this edition. Next time I’ll go the entire weekend, just to have time to enjoy all of it. Next appointment: 21-22 October. In the meanwhile, I’ll continue to enjoy all the pictures and go through all my favourite movies and series to see what I’ll cosplay next time…
What about you? Have you been to FACTS or any other comic con or other event? What did you do in your weekend. Let me know.
