Why do I always insist on wearing shoes that boost my height to these events? I always wind up crippled by the end of the day from all the queueing
Uh...hello! I'm back from Collectormania as you probably guessed, although I have to pop back in an hour to pick up my James and Brandon photos and have some dinner.
It's been a good day. I made a friend walking to the con this morning and we wandered around together trying to find where we should be queueing to get in. This place has SO many entrances it's unreal. It all worked out ok in the end and good thing I got there eary as I had nice low autograph numbers from everyone I wanted to see. 57 for Tony, 182 for James and 297 for Brandon
The lady I met on the way in kindly held my place in the Brandon autograph ticket queue while I nipped off to get Tony's
After I'd got all my tickets I went and had some breakfast and by the time I was done it was time to meet Tony. He was lovely. Really friendly and he actually remembered that he was late to Toronto Trek all those years ago which I had totally forgotten about.
Since there was no one behind me in the queue I asked if he would mind me taking a photo of us and he said that was fine. I wound up taking two by mistake. LOL( Piccies )
Next it was time to meet James and I managed to sneak a photo of Charisma while I was in the queue.
I swear James is some sort of fae creature. I haven't seen him in person since 2004 but I've seen him in Smallville and Cool Money where I have to say he didn't do a lot for me.
All he did today was look
at me today and I turned into a wibbling pile of speechless goo. I don't know how he does it. There's something about his eyes. Guh.
He was charming and polite as he always is. He shook my hand, made eye contact and said hello. I just wibbled. On the other hand I didn't
argue with him so go me! LOL.( Piccies )
Incidentally, that print James is signing there, they had a very similar one of Lex which I wanted but didn't buy because I need to save my pennies and don't have anywhere to put it anyway
Anways, after meeting James it was time for my photo with Tony. Not sure why but I wound up with two. I remember the phtotographer taking a second shot but I just assumed it was because I'd blinked or something on the first one but they're both fine.
Pretty much straight after that it was time for my James photo. As I said, I need to go pick these up in a few minutes but I'm intrigued as to how they turned out. I went and stood next to James and again he was all sweet and made me wibble. The photographer was about to take the shot when James suddenly decided to change his position. I don't know what he did but the photographer said 'aww' and took a lengthways shot of us before doing the regular one. Can't wait to see what they look like. I was too wibbly to really focus on what was going on. LOL
Next it was time to meet Brandon and I managed to sneak a photo of Grace Park while I was queueing. Am slightly disappointed to say that just as I arrived the organisers decided things were taking too long and told Brandon to stop personalising the autographs. He was charming enough and VERY pretty. I mean seriously. The kind of pretty that takes your breath away. As I got to him he decided his chair wasn't set up properly and started bouncing up and down on it trying to make it work. LOL. I wish I'd been able to take a photo, or even better some video *snickers*( Piccies )
And finally, to end the day, I had to queue for an hour to get my photo taken with Brandon. I seriously think Showmasters misjudged how popular he was going to be. On their website they were saying they anticipated him to have an open queue by late afternoon. As it was he was only up to ticket 400 when I left. He was lovely though, taking the time to shake everyone's hands (and did I mention how pretty he is?)
I met eleclya_m
while I was queueing and I must have come across as a total moron because she had to say who she was 3 times before I realised. D'oh!
Which brings me back to my hotel with sore feet. LOL.
And to finish some random pics of my hotel room and stuff at the con( Piccies )
Right, my wifi will most likely have run out by the time I've eaten and stuff so I shall see you all tomorrow. I'll scan my autographs and official photos when I get home
