Long time no talk, right? My lappy is getting looked at this weekend, so I’ll do my best to explain as much as I can on a phone with as little autocorrect issues as possible.
Well, this year I went to fan expo! I’ve always wanted to go these kinds of conventions for a while, so I figured it’s time! This year’s line up is great but I had my sights set on: Bruce Campbell, Robert Englund, Charisma Carpenter, Giancarlo Esposito, Eliza Dushko, Morena Baccarin… Anyone who knows me knows I love my TV show, ESPECIALLY IF IT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH JOSS WHEDON! Horror is my forte too ;) Tom Felton’s there too but I’m having a hard time adjusting to the fact that Draco Malfoy isn’t real…
There were so great comic artists this year too: Mark Bagley, Ultimate Spiderman,New Warriors; James Lloyd, Futurama; Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn; and so. Many. More: http://www.fanexpovancouver.com/guests/
Anyways, I had a really first great day! I was certainly overwhelmed by all the nerdy - which I thoroughly enjoyed!
I met Giancarlo Esposito, Gus from Breaking Bad, and it was great. Really nice guy and I went all fan girl on him. Told him he was my favorite villian on the show (because he was!!!) and he seemed genuinely touched by that. He was cool enough to let us take a pic with him (see earlier blog post). Which apparently you’re not supposed to, but he’s fucking Gus Fring - he does what he wants. He’s got a good sense of humor because he was selling pictures of him slitting throats open with a box cutter - I laughed pretty hard.
Next, I met Morena Baccarin, Inara from Firefly and Serenity. She was nice - had cold hands. She didn’t allow us to take pics with her because it was against policy (???). I didn’t get an autograph from her because I’m not rich…
Then Charisma Carpenter happened. K, I’m poor but I was willing to spend money on her. She was late but I never expected anything less from Cordelia Chase. She came out, we all screamed. I waited in line, couldn’t get a pic with her so I bought an autograph. I cried. It was super embarrassing. Her friend Candace was with her and was handling her money and she was giving me back my change but I wasn’t paying attention. I was so overhwhelmed and I said sorry. She told me it was fine and I looked at her and said, “No, you don’t get it. Buffy was the only thing that made me feel normal through highschool.” Truth be told, even before because when it came out, I was 7, and I really got into it at 9. Charisma was sweet, she held my hand and said it was okay and she was glad that Buffy and Angel could give me comfort in a tough time. I went back with my brother to talk to her when the line up died because how can you talk to her after your sister cries. I apologized for crying because apparently that’s what I do. We chatted and I told her how upset I get when Joss Whedon’s shows get canceled. I was bad and poo poo’d HIMYM for having ten seasons when Buffy only got 7 and Angel only had 5 (it was only when I got home, I realized I poo poo’d on her friend’s show. Don’t get me wrong, I love HIMYM, but I am still incredibly PISSED about the finale). She was sweet and explained it happens cause Angel and Buffy cost a lot to produce with the special effects and make up. I felt dumb for saying those things but I just love Joss Whedon. And we always get robbed of the great shows - Firefly, Dollhouse, Community (there’s a rumor!!! And yes, I know it’s not a Joss Whedon show but it still makes me laugh)… Etc. We went to her Q&A, and she was hilarious. She definitely has some Cordy in her but the Angel Cordy not Buffy Cordy. I also got to scream Leo got robbed of his Oscar for Wolf of Wall Street and she agrees.
So far, I’m enjoying my experience. I don’t think it’s worth the premium tickets just because I still had to wait in line, and the two hour advanced entrance wasn’t a thing to me - it wasn’t that full so I didn’t have a problem getting in whatsoever. Plus, I go in there and spend even more money so… Premium tickets haven’t seen like it’s worth it yet. BUT it is the first day and I’ve been told the tickets will help later on!
I’ll keep you guys posted! I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged but here it is! Hopefully I get my computer back soon because doing this from my phone sucks (I’m scared to read how many mistakes are made).

My favorite part of this photo is that there is absolutely no reason for Jason Segel to be in it and yet there he is laying on Seth Rogen
