His shop did not have anything larger, but it is a big mall, and I found a track suit in the Adidas store which had a jacket that fit and pants which I could use as PJs if they fit in my luggage. Needed the jacket on the return trip, it got cold & windy and a little wet.
Back to the con, but the crowds were impossible, so I did not attend any panels or filks. Wandered the art show and bought a couple of jewelry pieces. The volunteer at the desk who took my money turned out to be the artist. Nice. The way it works is put the "sold" sign on the bid sheet, back where I found it, and pick up the piece Sunday. "Sold" signs help sell more, and leaving the art there helps show the nice work.
Very few pieces had bids. I blame the lack of writing implements.
Hung around the con fan area, also bought a pasty and a soda and watched people go by and read from the Kindle app.
Went back to the hotel for a nap, then back to the con for the Worldcon Philharmonic.
Amazing, brilliant, more than impressive. Members from the London Symphony, Royal Phil, BBC Symphony, BBC Concert Orchestra, Britten Symphonia and London Phil with a prodigy conductor and a lovely soprano. And a magical theramin player. The program was about half sci-fi score music (Superman, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Star Wars, video games) and classical quasi-sci-fi (Ives, Haydn, Holst, Stravinski).
I cannot describe how impressed and thrilled I was to hear this music played at this level. The first half was partially destroyed for me by the idiot in front of me firing up his laptop and doing web searches on the numbers and composers, and whispering the info to his wife next to him. At the "interval" I changed seats to way farther up front.
The brass was especially beautiful, especially the French horns. It took a while for the trumpets to get some work, and somehow with the angles I never saw them. There were two full typani sets and 7 or 8 string bases and at least one brass upright bass. Tons of cellos. Two tons of violins. Only 2 clarinets and 2 flutes.
Standing ovation at the interval, more than 5 minutes after the last piece, they repeated the Superman March for an encore, another long standing ovation. I think the audience response gave me more faith in fandom than I'd had. Except for that idiot with the laptop.
Back to the hotel by way of the minimart. Got a baguette sandwich and some biscuits, which I ate as I was posting to FB.
Plans for tomorrow:
Nothing interesting at the con until the masquerade at 8-ish.
If the weather is photogenic:
Eye of London
Emirates Air Line
otherwise ride lots of trains
