...last weekend I met Ian Somerhalder! And what did you do? *g*

So… last weekend I had the honor and pleasure to finally meet Ian Somerhalder… among some other great stars from The Vampire Diaries. I remember some ppl saying he behaved like a douche at the last Barcelona con? Well, I cannot confirm this in any way. He is one of the sweetest ppl and comes across as a genuinely nice guy with a witty dry humor.
Also, he takes charity work really serious and you feel that it is very important to him. And even though he is a crowd pleaser, he does it in a way that isn’t fake or forced at all. And don’t even get me started on his looks. GUH. Those eyes are mesmerizing and when you go to the photo op it feels like you are the most important thing and all his attention is focused on you alone. It was just… wow!
I wanted to meet Ian for sooo long now so I'm just beyond happy that it finally happened. I also admire his work for ISF. We all pulled a great donation together and Ian was so overwhelmed by it, thanking us all - over and over! (even Joseph Morgan got goosebumps! lol)

Speaking of...

Man, I also gotta tell you that Joseph Morgan is one of the cutest, sweetest and most adorable guys ever!!! He smiles and/or laughs all the time, and he is adorably shy when someone praises him. But still, he manages to answer all fan questions without any awkward shy silence and you can feel that he is so thankful for and proud of his fans.
Seriously… this guy won me over SO DAMN MUCH and I simply adore him. Plus his British accent is just damn sexy.
It’s sooo weird that in real life he is the sweetest guy ever… and then you see him on the show and he is just a big bad asshole. lol But man, I love him. He is simply a sweetheart. A sexy and adorable sweetheart *gg*

Matt Davis… lol What can I say about Matt? LOL Well… to put it into Paul Wesley’s words: Matt = Dirty Old Man! LOOL This is so true! But he is so charismatic and funny and I just love his sarcastic side *gg* Not to mention that he is just damn sexy as well. At the photo ops he pulled me in, laid his arm casually over my shoulder while I curled one arm around him… and well, it was just perfect. Plus… holy hell…tall, handsom and muscled!!

Michael Trevino was a last minute addition b/c another guest had to cancel. To be honest… I didn’t expect much of him b/c I didn’t really care about him at all. So it was more an “okay yeah… whatever” news for me when he got announced.
But now, after seeing him live I can totally say that I’m very happy he was there. Man, such a fun guy lol Sometimes it feels like he was a little lost with certain questions… but all in all, he was really funny! And hello, eye candy.

Last but not least… Paul Wesley… *g* Let me tell you… I’ve never been a huge fan of Paul and his work. I also cannot stand Stefan on the show… but Paul? He is very charismatic and funny on stage. I also think he clicks with Ian quite well and they really have some great chemistry together (which is weird b/c on the show I never get that vibe) So yeah… Paul left a positive impression on me. (even if he was a little more “reserved” on Sunday) But well… we all have bad days, right? But man… Paul and a smiling photo op? Not possible. LOL He just looks weird. On every picture. It’s like he’s the Mark Sheppard in the TVD fandom.

So, in conclusion… it was a GREAT convention weekend and we had so much fun!!! Even the Sixties Party on Saturday was super-fun. And it had nothing to do with the convention itself but with the lovely ladies Andi, Kerstin, Susi and Madi I got to hang out with!! <33 And yeah, also in general, I had so much fun during my entire Vienna stay. First of all,we did some great & fun sightseeing, went for food and cocktails in the evening (and had one hell of a great evening… with other ppl looking weirdly at us b/c we were laughing so much) And also the convention itself was filled with lots of friends I got to hang out with… well more or less. ;) But Austria, Germany and Switzerland… all reunited in one spot!!

I also think that contrary to quite some negative statements from others, the organizers did a decent job. It was their very first con, so of course there were some hiccups and stuff that should not happen. But the most important part is (and they will get lots of bonus points from me for it) that on Sunday the person in charge came on stage and apologized. They really tried to do their best and I respect that.
Sadly, one of the main problems they had were the printers… so we didn’t get all of the photo ops yet (I had a pic with each guest plus a sandwich with Ian&Joseph) So we have to wait a little bit until they mail the missing pics to us. *sigh*

Also the selection of merchandise stuff was very poor :( Nevertheless, the shopping girl in me found something:


And a fun story goes along with it… I was checking out the jewelry table, saw those earrings and when all: Yay, they also have Supernatural stuff. lol Took me a few minutes to realize that the D & S does not stand for Dean and Sam… but also the Salvatore brothers have those same initials lol I never really thought about that before lol
Anyway… for me it will stay Sam and Dean *g*

For now I leave you with two funny vids. Pics will follow in the next few days… we had AWESOME seats in the second row, so this time my pics turned out really great. *happy*

Joseph Morgan being adorable. First talking about going back in time… and then being all “no spoilers” for the show Game of Thrones (seems like he is a huge fan… and a spoilerphobe lol )

Paul and Ian singing Ice, Ice Baby :D

Yeah Andi and I actually made two donations. One for Ian's charity (ISF )and one for Joseph Morgan's charity (Positive Women) :)

Paul said that he just cannot smile on pictures and that he apologizes for it. But the face he makes is still weird lol

I love the earrings. Sadly they weren't really cheap... but then again I NEVER saw earrings like these before. So I had to buy them. I didn't really buy anything else at the merchandise stuff b/c I need to save money. But those earrings just had to come with me :)
