ghostface, I was looking forward to seeing photos and hearing about your convention experience. So glad to hear that it went so well!
So Danielle Harris hugged you? Man, you lucky dog. Never shower again! Wait... nevermind. If you don't shower, you won't be getting hugs from her or anyone in the future.
Cool that your dad got to meet Vivica A. Fox. Is he a fan of a particular work of hers? My mind jumps to Kill Bill and Independence Day. Also, I saw a picture you had posted somewhere, of your dad photobombing you with Amy Steel. Haha, you dad rocks. Does he know many of the horror celebs and did he have a good time?
Since your username here is Ghostface, I know you must have loved meeting "Randy." Now you have to make it your mission to get more Scream cast autographs on that poster, next to Jamie Kennedy signature. Good luck getting Drew Barrymore.
I'm pretty jealous of all the stars you met. Steven Yeun from The Walking Dead seems like a nice guy. Amy Steel always stood out to me in the Friday series. Even Anthony Kosar from Face Off. I was rooting for him during his season, great talent.
Oh... and Robert Englund. No big deal. Haha. That photo with him is awesome! I don't think they were offering a photo opp like this when I met him. So great to have. He's such a ham, willing to contort his face to get as close to the Freddy look as possible without makeup. So you noticed that he likes to talk, huh? That's what I love about him. He's so full of stories and interesting things to say. Always gives each fan a bit of time, and says something memorable.
Then of course you gotta stroll the vendors tables. You picked up a great print, I recognized it as a Joel Robinson piece right away. Nice souvenir shirt too, which you can't get anywhere else.
I know what you mean about feeling at home when you walk into the convention. You realize "these are my people!" Horror fans are some of the nicest fokks, so it's a good atmosphere, despite the bloody machete maniacs roaming about.
Seems like you got to meet everyone on your "must" list, and then some. Do you feel like you had enough time to do what you wanted to do? You clearly had a good time. Based on these photos, your face must still be sore from smiling.
