Mission Report
I’ve had a couple of near misses with this relatively local Big Glasgow Comic Page event the past few years, but filming and other responsibilities meant I never quite made it along, this time round though, after bravely enduring the vagaries of the Kilmarnock one-way system we found ourselves with a second early, cold, start in as many weeks.
Fortunately, aside from a moment of bravado early on when we ventured near the entrance before realising our misplaced temperature related optimism and an exciting evacuation due to a fire alarm, this weekend we were able to remain entirely in the interior of the venue.

I seem to wax lyrical about how the locations and nature of the BGCP conventions attract a different crowd of families with younger children and convention novices, many of them availing themselves of the opportunity to cosplay, each time I write a field report on one.
Proving this was no exception to that rule this provided a steady, if not overwhelming, flow of attendees throughout the day for many of whom our presence and the opportunity for a photograph was a new experience which makes a pleasant change from many of the reoccurring gigs we attend.

Once again Mr. Macqueen provided a cornucopia of refreshments for the attendees and oversaw the well-appointed changing areas and deserves our gratitude for ensuring the whole day went off without a hitch.

 

Apart from his “poo in the pool” story.
