These are the photos taken in the booths, where you can be photographed with the celebrities and all the ones I have had done are up for a bit of fun.
First up, some creature from the Undercity
While in the rapidly moving, short queue a prop malfunction happened and it’s head suddenly dropped and so we had to wait a good ten minutes, while they farted about trying to raise it again.
I also met a certain member of a Dinosaur hunting team but had to restrain her, as I then informed her that the incursions that her group had let happen may have ruined the chances of us seeing FLESH on the big screen!
She was absolutely lovely and when I asked her if I could do a choke hold on her, she was up for it and she even did a little scream. Due to being at the end of the queue, I managed to quickly show her the pic and she loved it. She also waited for a pic with Judge Anderson, as Lauren had forgot the time and I pointed her to the booth and she was lovely to her as well.
As I waited in the queue for this pic, the security team asked me what I wanted to do with the cuffs (obviously terrified that I was going to put them on her and not have the keys), I reassured them that I just wanted her to hold them.
This was because I was about to arrest a lady of the night and I just handed her the cuffs over so she could cuff herself
When I did hand them over, she said, “mmm what do you want me to do with these?” I was so tempted!
The next person was absolutely hilarious and very generous with everyone he met, shaking each persons hand before the picture. While waiting in the queue you could hear him in the booth doing his stuff, with his booming voice.
Steve Green had bought a megaphone for this pic and I was to stand face to face, with me holding the device and pretending to shout at him, while he shouted me down with his natural voice. Obviously this didn’t go to plan!
He took the megaphone from me and asked how to use it and when he did, he had a load of feedback and then he yelled
You can see from the two pics (they gave me a freebie) that when he did shout, I actually recoiled with the sudden blast of his voice, as I didn’t expect him to shout down the thing! When this happened, everyone who knew I was getting this pic done knew it was happening then!
Preparing for the onslaught!
Take that Burdis!
Look forward to the next batch, whenever I decide to go to another con in the near future!
