#MIBF2015: Highlights


I’m still in post-MIBF recovery (the usual: sore throat, backache, and basically feeling like I’ve been run through a laundry press…), and I just sent off my cousin (boo hoo) plus have loads to catch up on (work, Heneral Luna, new Doctor Who, Face Off, and the mountain of to-be-read books, including MIBF acquisitions), so here’s a photo blog in the meantime!

they announced there weren’t any more slots!
