My Recap of Chicon 2010

On  October 14 this post was taken down and copyrights were put on my photos it sucks that I had to do this but 'I' took these photos and had a hell of a time doing it and it pisses me off that someone thought it would be hilarious to TAKE my photos. So sorry to anyone who hates copyrights they are here to stay. And will also be on any Nashville photos

Hi everyone!! It's Saturday the 9th and it's 3:38 pm CST and I decided to start writing my journal entry while things from last night are still in my head.

    I arrived on Thursday the 7th and got to meet some WONDERFUL girls! We roomed together and were running the Chicago Cause! Collecting donations for the Lincoln Park Community Shelter <3

   So for the first photo here's our table set up!

So next off RICHARD IS AMAZING!!!!! And Matt Cohen ROCKS!!! OMG!!! 

So during Matt's Q&A a girl asked him if he knew how to do the jerk. And it ended up with her going onto the stage and showing him how to jerk!!! It was AMAZING!!! My question wasn't very exciting. I asked him if he had ever had a paranormal experience and turns out he's had many many many.

Now for my Richard stories. OMG! First off Thursday night me and a bunch of fellow con-goers were hanging out in the lobby, and I sneezed. I hear two people say bless you, one person was Nicole [info]archern85 and the other was Jason Manns! He and Richard walked by and said hi and then about 15 minutes walked by and said hi again! EEE YAY!!

Now Richard's panel was WICKED! First off Richard came to the BACK! He was all talking about the gold and silver patrons and asked what we were and then he sat back there and talked with the crowd for a while. Then the girl in front of my was from overseas, her name was Amy and she's a total sweetheart but was sitting alone. He asked here where her friends were and she said in Gold he grabbed her by the hand and took her all the way up to sit WITH her friends in Gold and he was just great. 

So here's some photos of that beautiful man from the back of the room

Some shots from Gold Seating


Throughout the panel Richard had brought out a pepsi max and kept stopping and saying 'I'm thirsty' and taking a drink. Then he stripped off his shirt and he had on a P. Max Jersey!!  I tried my hardest to get a photo of that jersey (a friend even let me sit in her row C gold seats so that I could see him since he was my favorite) so for my question I asked him to please hold up the shirt so I could take a photo of the back. He asked if  he should put it back on and I said sure! So he put it on and posed and I asked him to turn around so I could see the back and he turned around and shoved his butt out and goes 'Take a money shot!!' OMG!!! I was horribly embarassed but I sure took the photo. My second question was whether he was really shoved into a trunk during Jericho!! He was!!! EEEEEEEEEE I was so excited to meet him, he's amazing.

 During photo op he asked me if I'd gotten the shot I needed and if I was going to post it on facebook. I promised I would. THEN during the autographing he asked me If I promised that I'd post it I promised him I would and told him that my husband called me while I was taking the photo and I told him that I was taking a photo of Richard S's ass and to call back later. He said 'Sure I'll call you later' LOL It was awesome!

I will also mention that I may have taken over 50 photos of Richard *blush*

Here's my photo op with Richard!

  The karaoke party, I do not have enough words to describe HOW amazing it was!! Richard kept putting on his pornstache and it kept falling off. He and Matt Cohen kept singing the entire party as backup. Also they said fuck the seats and MOVED them and asked everyone to come up front!!! You guys it was EPIC!!! Matt kept doing the jerk too!! LMAO The party lasted until EARLY EARLY AM.

   Here's two of the videos or the three I took during the karaoke party. Will upload the other as soon as I can



Me and Jason at the end of Karaoke (and it's like 3:00 am and that's why we look high)

Saturday I tried to take it easy. I saw Mark Sheppard's Panal. You guys. I cannot explain to you the greatness that is this man!! He's so....... amazing! The best part of his panel was when someone asked him if Jim Beaver was a good kisser. And he went into this long long description of how sweaty and fuzzy it was and then ended it with saying. 'But yes Jim is a good kisser' LMAO!!!!

  Now I actually had no autographs or photo ops with this man and I was kind of sad about it. But I have a friend who dragged me with her to get his autograph and she told him. 'Hi Mark, this is my friend she's poor, but she wanted to meet you' and he shook my hand and told me that he was poor once too!! EEEEEEE Mark! I love you.

  One funny thing about this guy. During ALL his photo ops he looks so socially awkward it's like 'Oh there's a camera? Where?' Seriously he's got the goofiest expression in all of his pics! It's hilarious!

  I'm not sure what photos to share I took so many, so I'll now tell you guys. I met some of the MOST fantastic people in my entire life! OMG it was such a horrible sad thing to leave this convention. It was like leaving a place you felt like you belonged! So I'm going to share with you some photos of some amazing people I met now

This is Hillary (she came from the UK to this con!)

This is Amy, who was such a sweetheart!!

This is Karen and Hunter

  Sonya and Jaz!

This is Kel! She was wonderful!

Here is Nick in her Cas cosplay with my Plushie Cas

Cas Plushie was VERY popular! I had him sticking half out of my backpack and people kept stopping me to take photos of him. LOL. Oh and before I forget! Here's my autograph from Richard!

Now as for Jared, Jensen, and Misha's panel. I had such sucky seats I have NO good photos from that. BUT! While I was in line for Misha's photo op I got it. I told him to PLEASE scribble over his awful out of focus hand in the middle of the page PLEASE

So my friend standing behind him holds out my Castiel doll and told him I made it. Misha told me I could do mean things with crochet. And then took it and goes 'Can I sign him?'

So Cas Plushie was autographed too

Misha's photo op line was INSANE!! But I met an AMAZING person (actually a few people) while in line! One of them is named Li!
Here's Li holding her Photo of her and Mish

Cas Plushie hanging out while waiting in line

Here's the line for Misha's photo op

Now during my photo op I was so worried I'd look like crap. Misha went to put his arm around me and I'm HORRIFIED about what I said to him. I told him and I quote 'I'm the one who is the leader of the charity drive upstairs I should get a hug for that' and here's the shot

  So obviously I SUCK at recaps! BUT Our donation drive for the Lincoln Park Community Shelter was AMAZING! You guys! I don't even have the words!!!! On Saturday two girls approached me and told me that they money they were going to use for an extra Richard photo op instead they went and bought as much from the shelter's list as they could!!!!

   Here's the items for the shelter all boxed up and ready to go

Nicole! (archern85 )

Everything going out to the car to be loaded up

So it's a sucky recap of a WONDERFUL weekend. You guys it was great!! Only 8 months till Nashville!! WOOHOOO

It sounds like you has such a great time. Your con report made me smile.

I love both your photo ops, they turned out great.

And it's so good to hear that the Chicago cause was such a success. YAY! :)

I'm soooo happy you had such a wonderful time! I think you've had more fun at your cons than I've ever had at any of mine. And mini-Cas was signed! ^.^ That's super awesome. You should make one for Big Cas to have all to himself.

Oct. 14th, 2010 04:57 am (UTC)
Hehe! I look really bored. I think I was watching the registration line and waiting for it to go down a bit
