Con Report Preview  
Burbank Stargate Creation Con was great. Full of much fangrrl SQUEEING.

Ok, I'll elaborate. A little. Full report will follow as soon as I upload my pics and write something coherent.

Official Guests: Cliff Simon, Colin Cunningham, Michael Shanks, Tony Amendola, Obi Ndefo (Rak'nor), JR Bourne, David and Kate Hewlett, Torri Higginson, and Jason Momoa.

Unofficial Surprise Guest of the Awesome:

MICHAEL TRUCCO!

(erm, Anders on BSG, for anyone straining her brain trying to come up with his appearance in Stargate... )

Yes, I will give more detail later, but he made a surprise appearance on Saturday. His very first con EVER! I was about two feet from him too. It was frakkin' incredible.

Also cool: I discovered that Jason Momoa's family and my husband's family live in the same town and probably know each other.

I spent too much money. sigh. But for someone whose main con experiences have been the humunguous San Diego Comic-con, it was a marvelously intimate convention.

Off to crash now.

Alas, the Arms of Awesome were mostly hidden in the Black Shirt of Cool. But I'll put my sighting report at hotcupofanders so everyone can see.

Wow, I have no idea how Michael ended up there but YAY!

Looking forward to details and spoilers? yes? maybe? *is hopeful*

I am amused that his first con ever is a Stargate one. :)

Yes, yes, will post the details both here and at hotcupofanders (you can use the comm entry for gn, if you want; that way people won't have to wade through pages of Stargate stuff here).

For being a con virgin he was pretty closed-mouthed about spoilers. Although no one asked a direct question either, so we made it pretty easy on him. He did have news, which is a spoiler in itself and very exciting! :D

Some times smaller is betten then bigger, remebering back to the time Bob and the rest of the volenteer security people ate dinner in New York City and played laser tag with cast members from Bab5.

yeah, it was nice to be small. Not that I did anything like you (which sounds really awesome), but still, the lines were relatively short, and the actors could take their time with everyone without staff hurrying people along. Even the day pass people were sitting pretty close during the Q&A.

San Diego is a multi-track con, and four of the tracks seat over a thousand people EACH in the main halls. You can't even imagine the size of the dealer's "room" -- it's bigger than most cities' entire convention centers. The whole con is a madhouse. well, that's unfair, since it's extremely well organized, and it's tons of fun, but it's also completely overwhelming.

I miss conventions some times. I remember all the great times I used to have.

I'm still squeeing! :D

I'm glad you had such a good time. And suprise guests are always fun. :) I can't wait to see the con report!

I'm sure Audrey already told you, but the mission was a success!
:D

He seemed very flattered. And Michael told me as I left the page that it was a great thing to do. :)

(though I'm 100% sure he gave JR crap about it when they went drinking later!)
