Montréal Comiccon 2012  
I am so very happy that I decided to attend the Montréal Comiccon this year~! sparkles

I was very hesitant in going at first because my friends weren't going and I didn't want to go by myself. I was also reluctant in going because I was afraid I would be a loner. But that got blown out of the water as most of the volunteer members were people whom I made friends with during Otakuthon and the guests were so sociable with me !!

I got to interact and talk a lot with the guests and got many of their autographs!! Sadly, I wasn't able to get Patrick Stewart's autograph as he needed to quickly depart, but I'm more than happy with the spoils of my convention arrowup

I also got to get hugs from many of the guest actors that attended the convention and I'm proud of myself that I was able to maintain most of my inner fangirl squeals of delight NG

Out of all the guests that I was helping manage, my favorites were both Kevin Sorbo and Nicholas Brendan hearts




I also got one for my dad from Kevin Sorbo from Andromeda and another one for my younger brother, Daniel, who wanted Eddie McClintock from Warehouse 13:

Bite me from Spike!!!! *goes beyond mad*

How did you get those cards? And what exactly was your work in Comiccon?

*is sulking in a corner*

Keh keh keh~

I was inwardly squealing since I was the last one to get an autograph by him and got to shake his hand *grins*

They're not cards, they're 8x10 photos with their autographs on it :3

I was basically doing crowd control to make sure that not everyone rushed into an event or swarm around the poor overworked actors that were signing~

Those Buffy photos killed me beyond death >.< who's the guy below nicholas brendan? he looks so familiar but I can't recall where I've seen him.. *gets bricked*

Aha... you'd play the role of pacifying the crazy fangirls? XDD

OH! The one below Nicholas Brendan is Aaron Ashmore, he was in Smallville and in Warehouse 13. Not only that, but he has a twin brother, whom is also an actor. So it's likely you recognize Aaron, if not it's possible you've seen works from his twin, Shawn Ashmore~

Yes, the irony is not lost on me. I had the role pacifying the crazy fangirls when I myself was silently and trying in vain to suppress my own inner fangirling. It was definitely harder when I was with Nicholas and he hugged me several times <33

*swoons at the memory*

Hmm... I've checked wiki for the list of movies/series he acted in, but I don't recall seeing him anywhere! It must be Hime or Tyta who was spamming pics of hot guys that caused me to stumble upon a pic of him...

You know, when I went for an autograph event, I used to wish the crowd control people could give us more time with our idols (although I know that the poor actors are tired and all). However, I don't think I have the audacity to control the crazy fans XD Despite that, I think I'd be smirking the whole time if I had your job :P

HAHAHAHAAA~ When all else fails, blame Tyta :3

It usually depends on how long the line is. But I generally didn't do much aside from motioning to the people who were next in line that it was their turn to see the actor or even to help calm them down because they were really nervous in meeting the actor. In other words, I left the fans to their own discretion to how long they wanted to interact with the actor, but everyone was really nice and didn't take too long since they knew there were many others after them.

There weren't any "crazy" fangirls, but plenty of fangirls and fanboys nonetheless. But they were all calm and understanding. Aside from the "OMFG!! KHSKAJHFKDGAJD!!!!" :3

Yeah, I was smirking when I was doing it. I knew a lot of the actors, but I didn't think they were gods that needed to be worshipped. In any case, it was interesting in trying to get the really shy ones to meet the actors or even the really nervous/starstruck ones to meet them :3

Ah... in the autograph session that I went to, I only got a few seconds with my idol before I was shooed away T__T But seeing my idol look so tired made me accept that more easily.

I'm not as into Western actors as I am into Jun but then again, I wouldn't give up a chance to interact with them XD

Obviously, I'm living in the wrong side of the continent. >:O

But its all good~ Still sad though. I grew up with Hercules and Xena ;_;
Thought I barely remember the live action series plot, I loved the cartoon movie. NOSTALGIA RUSH. Sadly I wasn't old enough to remember Buffy either, but Charmed always had jokes about it and I still laughed at them. :Db

I'm still shocked at how Sorbo looks so young for being 53 already OAO;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
Its amazing. What's his secret... lol

Still, GLAD YOUR TAKING CHANCES AND MAKING FRIENDS AT COMICON. ;D Just look at what it did for you :3 take care~

I KNOW! I grew up watching Xena and Hercules as well!! I was starstruck and nervous when I met Kevin at first (as well as many other fans) but he seemed to understand that and was really nice to me!!

I know that man, despite being 53 is still so fine looking! He ages so well!! He's also really tall, I never expected him to be THAT tall and I felt like a dwarf next to him X3

YESH! I AM SO HAPPY THAT I DID TAKE A CHANCE AND WENT DESPITE MY FRIENDS NOT ATTENDING!! After Comiccon, part of me was wondering why I didn't do it sooner since it was their fifth year this year~

Thought my eyes is playing a trick, there's one pic got mixed there or it's on purpose XDDD I had to look up there like thrice, to make certain that that's really an AraFes stuff XDDD

YESH!! Kevin Sorbo was probably one of my favorite guests who went to Comiccon (I also really liked Nicholas Brendan tremendously :3)

I grew up with Hercules and Xena, so I'm really happy that I got to meet Hercules <33
