VanCon Post #8 - Report  
As promised, here is my recap from the con :-) An overall impression of the weekend, my personal experiences at photo ops and autographs, some stuff about the dessert party… and lots of Jared-squeeing. (duh!)

So Vancouver Con was, in one word, awesome!! No, really, not a single minute I did regret that I was there. My sweet partner-in-crime angels_cordy and I had a blast… and it was more than once that we laughed until we cried. I didn’t have much time to check LJ and stay up-to-date with all the convention posts, but I’ve heard of some negativity going around regarding the con. Sure, some ppl will always bitch and will never be satisfied. But for my part, I had a great weekend and was glad that I was there. The only two panels we skipped were Clif’s and Fred’s panel b/c those ppl simply don’t interest me in the slightest bit… so why waste time on them? But other than that… we saw everything. And yes, that means I also was in the Brock Kelly panel. Dear lord… that poor little guy. LOL He was SO lost and helpless on stage, his nervousness was written all over his face and pose. I don’t know if there are already videos out there of him… but if there are, go watch them and you’ll see what I mean. He had NO idea what he was getting himself into and it clearly showed on stage. I just wanted to pull him off stage, give him a cookie and tell him he never ever has to go up there again. lol Dear lord. And that guy is already 25 years old? He still comes across like a kid.
BUT he said quite some nice things about Colin Ford. So, he def. gets bonus points for that. But seriously, Brock, you need to toughen up a little bit. I’m really wondering why Hollywood hasn’t eaten him alive already.

Okay… my favorite panels besides the J2 panel (DUH) were def. Richard’s, Matt’s and Demores’ panels. Richard was his awesome self… and I was highly surprised and impressed by Demore. Damnit, now I have to watch The Unit. That guy defines the word entertainment.
Also, we were that lucky and got TWO panels from Matt. Awesome guy. I really hope he will return to the show at some point.

Okay lets talk about the autograph sessions:
As some of you know, I made this special uber-sized poster and everyone just loved it. Even Jared and Jensen commented on it and said that it’s “RAD” and “OH... NICE”.
And Misha was like “you made this, didn’t you?” And then he eyed all the ppl on the poster and continued “oh that’s really cool. Where am I?” And I pointed Castiel (including black wings) out. And he signed right beside him, commenting with my name and “Great Work” :-) Yeah, that made me smile a lot. After that he asked where I was from and I told him Austria. And he asked if I’d be attending any European cons this year – to which I replied “no” Sadly, after that some other fan came out of nowhere and interrupted us b/c she wanted to give Misha a present. And this was also the end of our little chat.

As Matt discovered Young!Mary and Young!John on the poster (with the little hearts)he went all “Awwww how cute is that?” LOL You should have seen his face – and heard his high pitched voice. :-) So cute. And did I mention that Matt is awesome? I cannot point that one out enough *g* He is funny, witty and thankful for all the fan attention… and when he talks about how much all the fans mean to him you see that it comes right from his heart and that he means every single word.

Dessert Party:

Let’s continue with Matt, okay? He told us that he was sooo tired but he enjoyed every single minute of his appearances (he was there Friday AND Saturday) And he said that earlier that day, he had a few minutes to go up to his room and eat. So, he settled into bed, turned on the tv and watched Gremlins (yeah, don’t ask lol ) He had his turkey sandwich in his right hand and the remote in his left hand. And he only took one bite from his sandwich before he fell asleep. About an hour later, he woke up again, remote and sandwich still in hands LOL

Oh, he continued to be funny and entertaining and he loved this whole convention thing. AND he also said that if his schedule allows it, he will do many more cons. *crosses fingers*

Btw, at the dessert party, I had the seat right next to the celebrities – which was kinda nice *g* Demore started to ask where we were from and so I told him I was from Austria. And he was all “Oh really? No way” and then he paused a second before he continued, grinning “That’s where Arni Schwarzenegger is from!” And I answered “Yeah. We are still sorry for that” LOL And then he broke out laughing LOL

The last two ppl at our table were Samantha and Rob. Both were nice but there was nothing standing out for me to be worth mentioning :-)

Photo Ops:
I had a picture with Matt. And I was lucky enough that the first picture didn’t turn out good, so the photographer pulled me to the side, told me to wait, and then I was able to walk back to Mattt, cuddled a bit closer and retook the picture. And the whole time Matt apologized that he screwed up the picture b/c of his "squinny" eyes.
But later, when we got the pictures back (yes, I got two) it turned out that I was the one screwing it up. LOL But well, now I have two perfect Matt smile-pics for just one photo op price *gg* Nice, eh?

Well, and on Sunday I had two Jared pictures. One, was a single one… and the second one was the one angels_cordy bought for us so that we could be on the same picture with our favorite guy *gg* And I truly love how that picture turned out. Jared’s smile is priceless!! Totally mischievous – like “haha, I have both girls in my arms”. lol I haven’t seen him smiling like this in any other photo ops that were lying on the tables. It’s really hard to describe.
But maybe the reason for this is the fact that he remembered the both of us and told us “welcome back… good to see you again.” *thud*

Also, for my single picture, Jared hugged me even without me asking him!!! I was just standing there and suddenly he threw both arms around me. I was so perplex that I didn’t even have time to react to that LOL But whatever, he looks just gorgeous. And the fact that he gave me the hug without me asking for it, is even more perfect *g* At first, I wasn’t so fond of the way I smile in the picture, but I think I’ve changed my mind. It’s a totally dreamy “I’m in love” look lol So I guess, for lying in Jared’s arms it is very appropriate. Y/Y? lol

Uh yeah… that was VanCon 2010. If there is some stuff you want to know, just ask. But I think (hope) I covered the major parts of it!!!

And last but not least, a shout out to my lovely angels_cordy. Sweetie, the last two weeks were soooo awesome!!!! Thank you for the perfect time….! And always remember…. CONFETTI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I still have some con stuff to go through... but I'm not sure if it's postable or not. ;) And I still have QUITE some pictures from Vancouver in general waiting to be posted. But that's gonna take me a few days b/c there are LOTS of them *gg* Also, I still have many comments to answer to. I promise I'll get to them asap :-)

And last but def. not least... THANKS SO MUCH to deanvica23, eviltwin and nila_rena for the v-gifts!!! *squishes*

Poor guy. :(
But I can totally see why cons are kinda scary...

I read that there was a panel with "Demore Barnes" and I didn't have any idea who that could be until I saw pics and realized that it's the guy who played Raphael. But all the pics looked like he had quite some fun.
Ahaha, you talked about Schwarzenegger with him? XD

Are there any other European cons left in 2009 except for Asylum 5?

I'm sure Matt is a cute. And I'd love to see more of young Mary & John, too. :)

wiesnaswiesnas on September 3rd, 2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
That sounds really like an awesome weekend. :)
It´s nice when someone points out the good moments and is not bitching about the others.

Did you take a pic with Jensen too? Or was it all Jared?
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:34 pm (UTC)
To be honest... I didn't really see any (or much) bad moments... so I still can't understand why so many ppl were in bitching mode after the con. *sigh*

Sadly, I didn't have a picture with Jensen. Which, after seeing his outfit, I highly regretted. But it was just not in my budget to do a pic with both boys. *sigh*
dolnmoondolnmoon on September 3rd, 2010 06:54 pm (UTC)
sigh your jared photo op sounds awesome.. he is amazing isn't he... You are so lucky...
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:36 pm (UTC)
It was absolutely amazing. I think, right after my question time at the Meet and GreeT in Spain, this is def. my favorite Jared moment (so far lol )

*does some more dreamy little heart-eyes just thinking about Jared...* LOL
Jennifer: SPN: Jared & Jensen sillydaydreamer1984 on September 3rd, 2010 07:06 pm (UTC)
that's so awesome that Jared remember you!!! Sounds like you ahd a fantastic time! Im so glad to hear it!!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:38 pm (UTC)
Awesome and scary at the same time LOL At least (I hope) he knows that I'm not some weird stalker girl lol

And I'm so glad to see that we BOTH had such a great time during our trips!! August 2010 will rock forever and EVER :-D

good report sweetie. i adore brock shy,cute, adorable. i think that jensen can to help him with his shyness. jensen had the chance to know the success more late. i want a op with brockkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

cool a op with tania. if she is ok you will send it with your photo with jared. i think that now the boys remember of those who make often the cons. Jared remember of you it's cool sweetie you have lot of chance. even not need to speak you have your hug. For me with jensen impossible i see him each two years it can't.

for the fans wasn(t happy on the con?
love you
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:44 pm (UTC)
Oh honestly, I just think Brock is weird :-/ I didn't like him on the show... and now seeing him in real life? He is 25 years old but comes across like a kid!! :-(
But I hope you will be able to meet him some day and get your picture with him :-) And if he still comes to LA next year, I will get his autograph for you :)

Yeah, I am sooo happy with the photo op I shared with my lovely Tanja!! :-) It's a great picture. But please, don't be mad, but I do not want to share it. It should just be something between her and me. :-)
I also still haven't scanned any other photo ops so far... I just didn't have the time *sigh*

I am also so happy Jared continues to be fantastic and everything you wish him to be.

Thank you, sweetie!! *squish*

Yeah, I can confirm 100% that Jared is still his awesome and goofy self and appreciates his fans 100% :-)) It's always just so good to see :-)
nila_renanila_rena on September 3rd, 2010 09:43 pm (UTC)
“Yeah. We are still sorry for that” ROFL
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:48 pm (UTC)

(Anonymous) on September 3rd, 2010 10:10 pm (UTC)
how come we haven't talked at the con? or did we?
I'm the blonde German with the long black skirt who asked the last question at Brock's panel, oh dear!
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:50 pm (UTC)
honestly, I have no idea lol I talked to so many ppl at the con...

Uh... that was the dance-question, right?
Tanja: Giggle - Samangels_cordy on September 3rd, 2010 10:10 pm (UTC)

CONFETTI............IT'S A PARADE *giggle*
Jep I will never forget that.

And Honey I couldn't have said it better, the CON WAS AWESOME!!!
People need to stop to bitch about everything *roll eyes*
Now that the Stolen-Ebay-Picture Story is over I will hopefully be able to post a resume too *loooooooooooool*
You can imagine that I had to giggle several times when I read your report *loooooooooooooooooool* And did you see, Jensen took care of Brock after the Convention so we can stop to worry that he landed in some shady parts of the Stanley Park *ROFL*
Oh and I just had a look through all the pics OMG why haven't you stoped me!!?? I took soo many pics *giggle*
But they are nice.....at least I think so *LOOOOOOOOOL*
So I hope I can load them up soooon
Ohh and have I told yoou that I am in love with our picture *grin* it's PERFECT and I told you that your pic is AWESOME but you never beleive me *grin* So we definitely need to do more pics together *grin* I want one with you and Jake *thud* BTW. I WANT JAKE BACK!!!! *pouts*

tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 7th, 2010 07:58 pm (UTC)

Oh yeah... I think this will be OUR slogan from now on until all eternity LOL Misha would truly be proud of us, yes? LOL

Awwwww honey... RIGHT BACK AT YA!!!!! It was SUCH a fabulous time!!!! And I can agree... def. one of the BEST cons I've been to as well!!! <3333

Awww and I did see that Jensen took care of Brock... though I'm still a bit skeptical about the report... cause the dates and pictures just doesn't match at all. But I just believe that someone took care of Brock... uh maybe, they both went to Stanley Park then and... Okay no... stop. Mental picture. Do not want! ROOOOFL

Topic change...
I would NEVER stop you from taking pictures. Nope!!! :-D Your picturs are just too awesome!! So, there is no way in hell I would stop you doing that :-D

And I totally agree!! We have to do more picture!!! And personally... I think we should do a pic with Misha!! ROFL Come on.... I can totally photoshop some confetti in there then ROFL It would be like a PARADE!!!!!!!
And of course... If Jake ever comes to a con (WHICH I AM SURE HE WILL) we have to do one with him as well!!! Just... not at JIB!!! ROOOOFL

And ramble away, sister!! I sooooo don't mind at all!!!
