Collectormania Report!

[move]Collectormania 8 Report[/move]

As promised. My first attempt at a report...here it is!

8:23a.m. *Coffee Bar*

It’s already packed, and I’m sitting here in a coffee bar next to the commotion, watching people walk by. The queue for Nick Stahl is huge, but I found Nick’s place easy enough…after 10 or so minutes of wondering around asking people So right now I’m looking at General Lee’s car, it’s pretty awesome, and has really cool wheels! Storm Troopers are wondering around, scaring people (a.k.a. me) and pointing fake guns at people (a.k.a. me) and I’ve seen people so far dressed as characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi and Princess Amidala (something like that, I haven’t got a clue ) Also, Darth Vader’s wondering around, I’ve seen a Barbie figure in a Star Trek uniform and a person wearing an original Star Trek uniform. The atmosphere is incredible and positive. Juts got to wait for the convention to open now .

9:44a.m. *Standing outside Nick’s stall*

OK, so I’m standing here along with masses of other Buffy fans, and it’s great. Everyone’s talking, and the buzz is amazing, we’re just all hyped, waiting for Nick, Kelly & Stacey to arrive. According to the staff he’s due anytime now! Woot!

9:57a.m. *Waiting in line*


So, OMG, I was just stood outside the shops, waiting and watching eagerly for Nick to arrive, and I stood on this ledge, peering over the crowds looking for a glimpse, when suddenly my mate pulled me down and pointed straight ahead. Sure enough, there was Nick. It’s incredible to see him, as in, the real him. He looked as beautiful as ever wearing black rimmed shades with orange tinted lenses, dark jeans and a dark shirt. He walked casually past with a comfortable smile. He looks so incredibly friendly. I just can’t believe I’m seeing the Nicholas Brendon.

10:12a.m. *Crying outside the queue *

OK, so my ticket was called, and I was like, ‘OK, breathe…’ it was fun. I walked up, handed my little red ticket to the girl behind the table and chose my photo. It was really pretty. Nick standing in a crimson, velvet shirt, confident smile playing his lips, beautiful pic, so after that, I had to queue behind about 2 or 3 other people, in front of them, was Nick. After everyone in front of me had gone, it was my turn. I was desperately trying to cling to my camera, and the letter I’d written the night before, but my hands were shaking so much, it was kind of hard. He looked up and smiled, and I immediately felt less scared, to save me trying to explain the conversation, I’ll just write it out, it went something like this:

Nick: Hey
Me: Hey *hands over photo*
Nick: OK, so, what’s your name?
Me: Stephanie…well…Stevie I guess *laughs*
Nick: OK then, Stevie *signs photo*
Me: Thank-you so much! Um, I got this as well *hands over fan-mail*
Nick: Thanks
Me: So, is it OK if I have a photo?
Nick: Sure, if you can find someone to take it *laughs*
Me: OK! Thansk! *hands camera to friends*
*Poses for pic*

Me: OK, so see-you!
Nick: Yeah, bye!

It’s was awesome. I cried afterwards, lol, happy tears…I’m still crying now actually. I just can’t believe it happened! ;D He's suhc a genuinely nice guy!

11:58a.m. *Café overlooking the convention*

All I can see are rows upon rows of stall and eager fans, rushing about to meet their stars. The white boards dotted around the place are filled with black-inked, sci-fi stars names and prices. The atmosphere is incredible. People of all ages are joined together, talking and laughing. Walking around and looking at interesting stores. Everyone’s able to get on, because we all know that we share a common interest. There are no negative feelings or intimidation, just an uplifting feeling. Smells are wafting around of coffee and fast food, and steady buzz of talking is everywhere. There are stalls selling everything from autographs to comics, to figures and genuine props, it’s just awesome. There are excited crowds of people milling around Fox and Serenity conventions. Huge banners are hanging from the ceiling, and people are walking out of autograph queues, smiling, crying and hugging each other. Promo posters are pinned to random notice boards, and staff are rushing about in orange shirts making sure everything’s going to plan. The Buffy section is full of people. I walked past the Adam Busch part a little while ago, and waved I return for a wink and a smile. I’m so happy!

1:30p.m. *Bench in the middle of the convention*
I’ve just had a look around the actual stores. It’s so cool. There’s an actual Angel Smile Time plushie on sale, which I’m kind of surprised about, because I got told they’d all been sold, but sure enough, it’s in front of me. I just entered a bunch of competitions to win tickets to the UK premiere of Serenity, and to get a Fox Goodie bag, and stuff, it’s great. The stalls are awesome. I never realised what an expensive obsession Sci-Fi Cult was. There was a purple Beanie Baby on sale that said Buffy across its chest with the flaming heart logo, and a stake on its left arm, for £750, and trading cards for about £25. I left with a Spider-man comic *hey! I thought it had a pretty cover!*, a collector’s edition pack of Buffy playing cards, and an X-men thing…it was so much fun. There are like life-size models of Batman, Superman and Daleks hovering around, which everyone is flocking near attempting to grab photo’s of. Also, more people dressed up. I’ve seen a guy dressed up as the invisible man or something, and a little girl, probably about 8, dressed as Princess Leia, which was really sweet. I’m about to leave. There are too many people here now, and I’m not a people person so I’ll leave everything behind, and hope I get the chance to visit again!

It was such an awesome day guys! ;D

NOTE: This is the same report that's on FnaForum's and nickbrendon.com just so you don't waste time reading all fo them, and I'll have pics up by tomorrow morning, I acn't get them on right now, sorry!

Mine:

First of all (before meeting up with Will), Kate and I took a bunch of pictures of Adam Busch (Who I have met before, but Kate hadn't).


All pictures of Adam.

Adam again.

We queued to meet Andy Hallet first and he was the second to guest (who I wanted to meet) to arrive (Adam was first). Andy is a very good looking guy and he's just... really cute and adorable lol. I was 4th in line to meet him (I had to wake up at 5:45!) when it was my turn to get my autograph, a woman (who obviously new Andy) leaned over and bagan to chat to him, so I just stood there for a while next to Andy and listened to his conversation. he really *loved* the fact that the woman's outfit matched his packet of mints (or whatever they were) lmao. Then I got his autograph (which I asked him to personalise) so it says 'To Jenny' then he drew a little heart 'Andy Hallett' and then I said 'can I get my picture with you?' and he said yes, so Kate took the picture I thanked him and then I left.




All pictures of Andy.


Andy again.


Top pictures: Andy discussing mints and matching outfits.
Bottom Left: Andy signing my picture.
Bottom Right: Me and Andy!


After that, Nick Brendon almost trampled on me! I was walking along and then I suddenly noticed that Nick was right in front of me, so I whipped my camera up and took a photo and then had to jump out of the way before he walked into me!


Top Left: The picture I got before I was almost trampled.
Top Left & Both Bottom Pictures: Kelly Donovan

Kate met Nicholas Brendon and he seemed in a better mood than when I met him. I took several pictures of Kate and Nick whilst he was signing her picture and when Kate and I left he said "hi" to me and I said "hi! bye!" and he said "hi bye!" lol <3 I loved Nick today!


All Kate & Nick.

I didn't talk to Summer Glau, but when I was taking pictures of her, she noticed me and smiled for the camera. She's really gorgeous in real life and seemed very chatty and nice (to the people I saw meet her).


Top: Summer with other people.
Bottom: Summer smiling for my pictures.


Summer and Coffee.

Will, Kate and I walked past Adam Busch's table and he gave us an adorable wave! Then we decided to meet him, so Kate bought a photo to get autographed and then I said "Would you mind if we all got a picture with you?" and he said "No." and I said "you wouldn't mind at all?" and he said "not at all!" so we all got our picture taken with him.


Left to Right: Will, Adam, Kate & Me (looking silly).
