One of the highlights from the weekend was fulfilling my long life aspiration of sitting on the iron throne, ready to rule Winterfell. It is needless to say that I felt like a badass empress about to take on the world, my reaction to it fulfilling the definition of fangirl, recorded in the Day 2 Vlog for your viewing pleasure.
It's always difficult to pick which panels to attend due to the sheer amount of signings I write into my schedule but "Behind the Magic" could not be missed, fantasy is my favorite genre and it was fascinating learning how different authors come up with their own magical systems. The line up was made up of the wonderful Taran Matharu, Victoria Schwab, Sally Green and Malinda Salisbury and they each discussed what it's like to not overhwelm a reader with too much information about the magical rules in their respectvive series or how much planning goes into writing a plotline with complicated magical systems.
While my main goal for attending the convention is to meet authors, I am also a massive comic book fan and so I love venturing out to the main LFCC floor. The highlight of this year was definitely the display of Suicide Squad costumes, which are the originals worn by the cast in the movie. Check them out in the Day 1 vlog!
Already counting the days for next year!
