Just found out that the UK live stage version of the Jeff Wayne's musical 'The War Of The Worlds' is coming to Melbourne in September. What I wouldn't give to be able to attend that one. Trouble is it's around the same time as the Firefly/Serenity convention that I was thinking of attending. Depending on prices it may have to be one or the other. Until guests have been officially announced for the con I'm definately leaning more towards the musical. Of course if they announce that Nathan Fillion's coming..... :D
Plus, the guys who are running the con are the nicest people ever. Very organised as well, and their prices don't send you broke. I attended one of their cons last year (my first ever) and I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. It was an absolutely perfect day and the guests were fantastic. They had Danny Strong, Tom Lenk, Adam Busch, and Amber Benson (the Troika and Tara from Buffy) and all for a tiny $50 entry fee. :)
Photos and signatures did cost extra though and I could only afford a photo with the 3 boys. They were the main reason that I attended the con anyway. Amber was just a wonderfully hilarious bonus.
Also, I've been wanting to post these photos for a while but wasn't sure how until today (many thanks to ladybracknellfor all the help).
