Supanova Was FUCKING Awesome!

Favourite Cospays: Darth Vader & The Stormtroopers (next year I will work up the guts to have a photo with them. All the Doctors wearing Fezs' (is that how you write it???) The girl in front of us in the line dressed as Big Daddy from Bioshock. Wally (I found him! he was sitting in front of me during the Sean Maher seminar)

Favourite Moments: Tom Felton walking past while we were standing inline for photos with him and saying "morning ladies" (we fangirled all over the place), Seeing Gareth David-Lloyd standing on the balcony watching all the happenings below. Amy Acker waving at me from the balcony. Meeting Tom Felton (photo & autograph) and him telling me the story of his ex-girlfriend Melissa, and how he used to spell her name wrong, and will now never forget how to spell it. Meeting James Marsters and him being more awesome then I can even imagine. Meeting GDL. PHOTOS WITH TOM FELTON & JAMES MARSTERS, Autographs from Tom, James, GDL and author Alison Goodman.

Purchases: 2 tin robots, 7 Futurama Blind Boxes (only ended up with 2 doubles), 10th Doctor artwork by Stewart McKenny (StewART) (signed by him), plushie Orc & Werewolf, Spike action figure. I also have so many business cards in the bottom of my bag it's not funny. 3 Autographs & 2 Photos (On my own with James Marsters, with Kaitlin with Tom Felton)

Favourite Thing From a Seminar: James Marsters' telling us that he bit John Barrowman during "that" scene in Kiss, Kiss, Bang Bang (Torchwood), and that JMs' wife "directed" the kiss, so they had to do lots of takes... (I think James Marsters married a girl just like us) James Marsters' doing Shakespere. GDLs' aussie accent and him saying how awful it is to kiss John Barrowman. Sean Maher talking about wedgies during his time dressed in Lycra for Warehouse 13. So much more. I recorded audio of James Marsters' seminar, so I'll have to replay it.

Dissapointments: Missing out on Tom Felton seminar because the line was full :( Gareth David-Lloyds' lack of full on Welsh Accent :( Not taking more photos or cosplay/celebs/random crap, not having a good camera to take said photos.

Unexpected Surprises: The stupid weather on Friday night. It was crazy and super stressful. Going to Supanova on Friday Night is the best idea ever. We didn't have to line up to get inside, and we stood in line for about 30 minutes for tickets from photos and autographs. Then on Saturday, we had all the photos and autographs done and finished with 2 hours, so we were free to look at all the stalls. Also loved how much more organised Supanova are this year. All the lines marked out, having specific times for photos etc. WELL DONE SUPANOVA!!!
