Em-Con Nottingham 2017

Next stop, Em-Con Nottingham.  This was officially the furthest we travelled for a convention but in a bid to try as many as possible this year we didn’t hesitate in signing up.  Em-Con is basically just like your usual Comic Con but on a more personal scale.  They have guests, photo ops, a few attractions…

PlayBox’s New Logo

Just a heads up to let you all know (in case it wasn’t obvious or you just hadn’t noticed) but we have a new logo.  Truth is, I just wasn’t happy with the rehash of the original logo as it didn’t fit well anymore and lets face it we’ve come a long way since our…

Portsmouth Tattoo Extravaganza 2017

Okay so I am a bit behind with all my blog posts so please bear with me while I try my best to catch up with them all.  This particular one takes us back to April during the Easter weekend where we decided to try our luck at tattoo conventions.  I didn’t feel it was…

Walker Stalker London 2017

Finally!! Walker Stalker 2017 had arrived.  As you well may remember, Walker Stalker is where it all started for us, before then we had been a purely online business but with the encouragement from the awesome fellow vendors I met last year, we’d been tipping our toes into the convention lifestyle. Last year, the boys…

Southampton Vintage Fair February 2017

First gig of 2017! First Vintage Fair too and to be honest I was really excited about this event.  If you’ve met me, you know why, if you haven’t then let me explain.  Stylewise I’m a bit retro, that is I love love love the fashion of the 50’s and early 60’s and rarely you…

Birmingham Comic Con November 2016

Birmingham Comic Con, this was to be our last convention for 2016.  Luckily, this time there was no added stress of a huge booth, we were back to the regular single table although of course the concern now was would we be able to fit all of our stock onto one table.  Time would only…

London Comic Con October 2016

London Comic Con. For those of you who don’t know, MCM put on some of the biggest shows in London with a whopping 130, 000 visitors.  I had never exhibited with them before but I was eager to get in.  Unfortunately I found out the hard way that it wasn’t a particular easy process.  MCM…

Bournemouth Film & Comic Con September 2016

Convention time again! Hurray! My bags are packed, I’m ready to go! How excited are we…. Except, we wasn’t.  Not this time.  Unfortunately ALL of the main guests had to cancel weeks before the event (some even literally days beforehand) including Julie Benz (who I personally was looking forward to meeting), Lance Henriksen (another photo…

London Film & Comic Con July 2016

London Film & Comic Con!! WOOHOO!! Convention time again!! Bring it on! Okay I have to admit I was VERY excited about this, mainly because of the amount of fangirling I would be doing over the weekend but more of that later 😉 The guest line-up for LFCC Summer 2016 was pretty damn impressive. Like,…

Suicide Squad – Suicide Squeeeeeeeee!

So unless you’ve been in hiding for the last year and living life as a hermit or perhaps you just weren’t interested (which is fair enough) you must have heard of the Suicide Squad.  Suicide Squad is a movie based on the DC Comics antihero team of the same name. Figuring they’re all expendable, a…
