Actually, I am going to Germany for Study Abroad... The History of Psychology.
I plan to partake in lots of non Vegan foods and German beers while I am there
Marina was very friendly the pic was off of my cell phone and after the person took our pic, she scrolled through my cell phone to make sure the picture looked good. She's still as gorgeous as ever.
My main reason for going was the Cobie Smulders photo op, I kind of have a crush on her
She was super friendly as well, when we walked in for the photo op, she introduced herself "Hi, I'm Cobie" I said "I know" haha, then she asked if me and the person I was with were a couple and I said "no, we're uncle and niece" (this particular niece is 26) and she said "Ooops, nevermind"
She was also very cool during her Q&A session, even after they announced no flash photography, she said "why is that a rule? it's stupid, I don't mind"
I envy you Olorin, to have $5 autograph price!! Autographs ranged from free for a few people, mainly hovering around 20-40$, with the headliners, like George Takei, Stan Lee, Cobie Smulders about $60 for an autograph, up to Jeremy Renner's outrageous $140ish.
Photos were generally about 5-10$ more. For me personally, I'd rather have a personal pic with the people, to me thats more memorable than having a stock photo signed. Now, If I had a special piece of memorabilia then I'd love to get that signed. I kind of regret not having my photo with Cobie signed, oh well.
There's another con coming in September to San Antonio, one of my favorite cities to hang out in. Right now, on the line up are Billy Boyd and John Noble
But we'll see, I have to see how my financials recoup after getting back from Germany.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
