Soooo lovely, yes! And you look so happy. I love it. TJ is AMAZING.
Your experience of the stewards is typical and I am glad he started to ignore them. I know they were swept off their feet by the impossible job the organisers had landed them with, but they were dismissive and lacking in any consideration or compassion for those who had waited for massive periods of time in acute discomfort. Health and safety indeed.

One of these characters smirked when Jude went to the top of the queue outside to ask why it wasn't moving. Apparently she nearly punched him in the face, and I don't blame her.

The stewards were volunteers as well, meaning they REALLY had no idea what was going on. Was no need for them to be rude. I will put up a full account as soon as I have put all my photos on my laptop, so I can put them up at the same time! I also videoed meeting TJ (not sure if that was allowed, but whenever I've done it before, it's always security that are funny about it, and not the guests). I only video it so I can remember it fully - very bad memory!

Won't upload it on here as I'm not sure if TJ would be happy about it - anyone any thoughts on this? I will describe it to you guys though when I do my full account. It will be long, so be warned!

Yeah the organisation was pathetic - and clearly they had no respect for TJ or some of the other stars that attended as they werent exactly treated very nicely were they. The volunteer who got to sit with TJ all day hardly even smiled when I was in the queue. I am like OMG GIRL YOU GET TO SIT WITH TJ ALL DAY AND HAVE FUN AND ESCORT HIM PLACES ETC!!! How she was not smiling I do not know! haha

At one point I went outside through a side door because I really needed to sit down - my leg was KILLING me from walking round and from the amount of people that had knocked me or kicked me. I got shouted at for leaving through that specific door and then told I couldnt come back in that way. I had to go all the way to the front of the building and wait for 35 mins to get back in as the doors were just not being organised properly. One of the stewards actually shouted at us at one point saying "everyone needs to back off and let people out so we can let you in" - so I shouted up "well why not use one door for entrance and one door for exit? seems logical to me" - I got an angry look and she walked away. Idiots. Surely its not THAT hard to put a logical door system in place?? haha.

Anyway although the show runners were absolute PANTS and it was waaaay too hot in there... it was a fantastic day and TJ was amazing. Really cant wait to meet him again at the next one he comes to over here. Think I may also have to do a Cosplay of Bones and wear a lab coat. ha!

Ugh that sounds horrible! Hope you're okay! I heard they shouted at Stan to wake up during one of his shoots, I mean come on, the guy is nearly 100, surely he should have a break!? The staff's treatment of the attendees, as well as some of the guests was absolutely appalling.

The girl who sat with TJ when I was there was really lovely, all three of us had a laugh about money lol. She also took my camera, and got me three photos with TJ, with TJ checking they had come out okay, and got my lab coat it haha.

Definitely cosplay at the next con - then we can match in our lab coats!

I have to finish up some work so I'll have to come back later this evening to finish reading all these posts and comment, but for now I just want to thank everyone for their marvelous accounts and fantastic photos! My adoration of the talented, wonderful, ever-positive TJ Thyne renews with each comment made. So lovely.

P.S. to Sculder1013 - you met T-Bag and made it out of there alive??!? ;) Awesome.

I met him on Saturday, What a nice bloke. Took the time to greet all his fans and have a chat while signing autographs. I asked him to sign the photo to me,my wife and son. He asked who they were.

After a bit of chat about how he is finding London- he said I had to take a plastic bug for me and Becci, And to choose one Jack would like from a pile. I asked him to choose instead.

Then I asked for a few photos - A selfie and my mate took another of us for facebook. I got so caught up talking to him and taking photos I left everything he just gave me on the side - T.J and my mate had to remind me to take them lol

haha yeah I did - he was a lovely guy too and he gave me a free autograph because I had a T-Bag t-shirt on and he loved it. He signed a photo for me and also my tshirt - I'll have to get it framed now :) Knepper was my main reason for going to LFCC - I didnt even know TJ was going to be there until about 2 days before! If i'd have known earlier i'd have booked a photoshoot with him.

Thanks for sharing your pics ladies!!! I have to admit that I wasn't sure who "T-Bag" was so I had to Google him. LOL. I have never watched Prison Break so that would explain why I had never heard of him. :)

OK, my turn! :-)

LFCC - I think it wasn't well organized and there were way too much people inside! But I was there to meet TJ and I DID!!! YAY!!! :banana-dance: I got in at 10 am. Could got in at around 9, but took it easy. So many people. Crazy! Too big for me. I don't like that. Saw TJ at the autograph table in the morning and took some pics of him. But didn't get in line. So no chance talking with him. Wouldn't have been long anyway because it was really busy at his table.

Got into the Sherlock talk and the Starship Troopers talk which both were free. When I was q-ing for the Sherlock talk (at 1pm) Jude wrote that she might not get in. I thought she was talking about the talk first. Then I realized they were still outside. Really felt sorry for them. It was so hot that day.

The photo shoot was cool. He huged me. :-) The photo turned out great - and I actually like myself on the pic. That's rare! I look so happy on it. It's such a cute pic! I was able to talk to him a bit. Told him it was really nice meeting him. Steph ask me to say Hi from her because she wasn't sure if she was able to see him as they had to catch the train. The people from the Con were looking at me and signal they wanna continue. He ask me to give her his love. He gave me another hug. Told me that I came a long way and I manged to tell him "Just for you!" He's so nice! Then they needed to continue. I went to the autographs to maybe take another look at him when he will be back - and there were Steph and Ian. Steph told me she got still a few minutes and decided to stay. Which was good 'cause she was able to meet TJ for a few minutes there. He hugged us again - we did some pics - which was so nice of him - and he got back to his table. Steph and Ian had to leave. Jude wanted to Q for an autograph but they closed his line already because it was almost the end of this Con day. She needed to catch her train then, too. I walked around for a few minutes and then left, too. All in all a great day!!! TJ is really one of the nicest person I've ever met. I still cannot believe I actually met him. It was so cool! A memorable moment for me. Still makes me smile when I think about it! I should have let him sign the picture of us. Well, maybe next time! :romance-smileyheart:

And of course it was another 3 boiling hours before we got to the front of the queue, knowing we had to go for our train in less than an hour - and with no photoshoot time left! Actually that was funny, the way the girl at the desk looked at us wearily and didn't even look before she told us there were no TJ shoots left. I wonder how she knew immediately? ;) Could it be they hadn't given him a wide enough window? lol. But I am so glad you managed to see him, Simone. It would have been a bummer going back to Liverpool without a meeting, never mind all the way to Germany!! :happy-cheerleaderkid: :dance:
