FACTS Fall 2019

Just like last year, I spend another wonderful, magical day at FACTS Fall this year. It took place on 19 and 20 October 2019, at Flanders Expo Ghent. Just like last year, I went dressed in all my magnificent Harry Potter garb (which has grown since last year as well).

And this year the special guest from Harry Potter was none other than: Matthew Lewis! So of course I had to get a picture with him:

And I also attended his panel:

The expo halls were impressive again, with many beguiling Lego scenes and the most beautiful figures and figurines!

But of course, a big part of these conventions cannot be ignored on the main floor: the shops! Last year, I was quite overwhelmed by the sheer volume of shops and all they offered. So this year, I researched and prepped a bit more. To figure out what I wanted to look for, what might be interesting and everything else that can be put aside. I also took some interesting business cards from companies that deliver:

And of course, I didn’t just window shop or collect cards. I also bought quite a few new treasures. First and foremost: my new wand! It’s now a real Scamander wand! I bought a cheap, fake one in China two years ago.

And I also took advantage of the situation by scouting for some new (second-hand) Wii games. These ones look promising!

And of course, I couldn’t leave without at least one book. So I bought exactly one! Can’t wait for this new interpretation of the Peter Pan story, my favourite children’s story (and also my favourite classic Disney movie). Which came wrapped in an amazing paper book bag!

Can’t wait for the next one!

Happy conventions,
