MCM Comic Con Fan Encounter

I was one of many who was lucky enough to get a chance to see Camilla at MCM Comic Con London on May 28th, 2016. I decided to make a weekend of it and travelled down to London the day before.

I was the 9th person in line, my nerves were completely shot and I felt myself falling to pieces. I’ve been a fan of Camilla for years, and for quite some time ran my own fan site, camillaluddington.org – I had a lot resting on this meet up, and it terrified me….
