Some more photos from Memorabilia at the NEC in Birmingham.
One of the best costumes I saw on the day was this model, fully covered in gold, to appear as Jill Masterson from Goldfinger. A very clever and well executed idea, she was tehre to promote a James Bond magazine collection. What made it even more interesting was that Shirley Eaton, who played the girl covered in gold paint in the original film, was also there signing autographs on the day.
There are always plenty of celebrity guests at the event. On this occasion I shook hands with actor Cary Elwes, star of The Princess Bride amongst many other films. I also met a few other people as you can see below.
Appearing at the event was the wonderful Caroline Munro, star of Hammer films and of course The Spy Who Love Me (plus many more great movies). I met Caroline and got her autograph (again!). She was really sweet and remembered me from the last time we met.
The next Birmingham Memorabilia is at the end of March. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend as I’ll be off to Sci-Fi Weekender. So there’ll hopefully be tons of pics from that instead! Looking forward to the next NEC gathering in November…
