Scardiff Event

Had a day out in Cardiff today with Paul Lewis. We attended the second year of The Scardiff Event in The Masonic Hall and thoroughly enjoyed it.

There was a lot of cosplay going on, some creepy, some scary, some VERY scary, some sexy and then there was Paul and me...

Met some old friends, including, Steve Upham, Steve Lockley, Mark Howard Jones, John Llewellyn Probert, Tim Lebbon, Chris Teague, Gwilym Games and some new friends were made, mainly ones I already knew online but haven't met in the flesh (and bones and gristle...) such as Adam Nevill. David Price, Wayne Simmons and Teresa Derwin of Knightwatch Press, the publisher of the Potatoes Anthology.
There were snakes and spiders there too but we decided to give them a wide berth!

Steve Upham's table with severed hand and Paul Lewis's finger of doom...

 A young lady with a craving for our blood...

Lunchtime was spent at Carluccios where the food was excellent and reasonably priced too. I was surprised how busy the centre of Cardiff was on a Sunday, nothing like the ghost-town of Swansea where the only things you'll see moving are the tumbleweeds, empty fast-food packaging and the zombies sobering up from the Saturday night binge in Wind Street.

Me, taking a photo of Steve Upham, who was taking a photo of me.
