During the weekend of June 4th-6th, the Armageddon Expo was held in Wellington. The event was held at the Westpac Stadium, with other guests such as ast from Grimm, Harry Potter, Ash vs Evil Dead, Star Trek, Doctor Who and more. Their official website describes it as “the central event in a citywide geekfest NZ Comic Con, with parties, events and activities taking place all over Wellington.”
Our twitter friend Kiah got to attend the event and meet Rose, and thanks to her we received plenty of videos and photos from the event! She also put together a big fan book ahead of the convention, where we and many other Rose fans participated with letters and graphics. During one of the autograph sessions, she handed the book over to Rose – who was so happy and thankful!
