Getting ready was also a little sad that day because we knew it was the last time. I hadn't planned a specific outfit for that day and I just kind of put it together, but it actually ended up being my favorite one (Jim Michaels liked my scarf!)!
We went downstairs to get our wristbands once again. Then we went back to Starbucks for breakfast. Chad Linburg was actually sitting at a table in the corner and I wanted to go talk to him and tell him how much I enjoyed his but he was of course surrounded by fans. We had a nice, relaxing breakfast though. Reflecting on yesterday's events and sharing our excitement for the day ahead.
We had one last welcome from Rich and EWB. It was amazing how much energy they still had on Day 4. I can't say enough great things about those guys. They were the heart of the con, they kept the energy up and made the whole experience even more enjoyable, I LOVE THEM!
Then was the ever adorable Felicia Day. A fan had made a compilation video of other fans thanking her and highlighting her work. It was a beautiful video, and Felicia got teary eyed when she came out. This made me cry too.
After Felicia's panel we had a break. So we decided to go back to the vendors room. My mom wanted to get a picture of Jensen and she needed my help picking one out. She got a gorgeous picture that she'll get him to sign later. :)
Then it was time for Misha's second panel. I honestly feel like I know Misha at this point. I saw him so many times over the weekend and he just has a way about him that makes you feel at ease. I wasn't planning on taking a lot of pictures because I had taken them the day before and I wanted to save some battery for Mark and Mark. But when he said "I have a special guest, you may know him from his work on the small screen..." I knew immediately I had to capture it. West came out on stage and everybody awwwwed. We started screaming "We love you West!" Misha said "What is going on? They know your name. That's kinda weird huh?"
The next big event was Mark Sheppard and Mark Pellegrino. These guys were so much fun. They have amazing chemistry together, even though they were never on the show together.
Both of them are also absolutely charming in person. Mark S. walked around in the audience, and even found Osric in the front row and sat on his lap proclaiming "I found Kevin!"
Once again, these guys were great. Like everyone, that had a way of making you feel comfortable. They were very candid and funny.
After Mark2 was the grand finale, the most wild, random and crazy panel of the whole weekend. I have just one word for you...Sebastian!
After Sebastian's panel we had a farewell from Rich. It felt like the end of summer camp or something. I was so sad I wasn't going to be able to hang out with these guys the next day. Before we finally said goodbye, Misha came back on stage and spoke for everyone we he said to Rob "we are all so fucking happy to have you here." Rob went on to explain that he was so happy to be back and could "feel the love from every single one of you." Misha then started the cheering of "Rob Rob Rob Rob!" Again, watch the video. It was a beautiful moment that I'm so happy I could be a part of.
The absolute perfect ending to my VegasCon was getting Misha's autograph. I was getting it for my friend Brantlee who asked me if she bought the ticket if I would get it for her and of course I said yes!
We had a while to wait because Misha still had to do photo ops, and of course there were A LOT people in the photo op line. At this point it felt surreal that the con was over. Everyone waiting sat around in the panel room which really felt like home. I sat on the floor while charging my phone and reflecting on the truly awesome and amazing weekend I'd just had. I was exhausted by this point but still excited for Misha.
They finally told us to start lining up and even though I'd seen him several times in the past two days I got a little shaky when I got in line. Misha came out and sat down at the table. I know he was exhausted but he took time to talk to every single person. When I got up there I said "Hi." He said "Hi." I told him I was so excited to finally meet him cause I'd seen so much the past two days and I did this little dance saying "I get to meet Misha!" just...why. But he smiled. He held out his hand and we shook hands. He asked how the weekend had been. I told him it was awesome and that it was my first time. He asked if I would do it again and I said "definitely!" I told him "Thank you." and he winked. He was so approachable and adorable.
Then as we were walking down the hallway on the way to dinner we ran into Jim Michaels. I had to stop him and asked him for a high five because he was so awesome. He said "sure, I think you guys are awesome!" He complimented my scarf and then my mom reminded him that I had an idea for a Season 9 DVD extra for a tour of The Bunker that he replied to. And he said he thought they did it, so we'll see!
I can not tell you enough how nice every single person I met at VegasCon from cast, to crew, to fans was. If you have never been to one, you have to go. It was a life changing experience for me. I feel like I am part of something now. And something so special. Family was the theme of the weekend. And I truly feel like I am a part of the Supernatural family now. All of us that were there are bonded and will always have the memories of this amazing weekend. It may have been my first con, but it will not be my last. Cons are a part of my life now as much as Supernatural is a part of my life. SPN FAMILY FOREVER!
