Under the cut are just a few pics out of the hundreds (literally) I took at this weekend's Hallowhedon Convention. I will do a report and link back later this evening.



I so need a longer and better quality lens. I also need a lottery win.

Poor James couldn't sit down because of an injured spine. He was in agony, but he he stayed all weekend. My love for this man has grown yet another notch.

Nicky was great with Mercedes. At one point he asked her continuous questions about her boyfriend and where she lived and what her boyfriend did for a living and so on. It was hilarious.

No, I wasn't lying. Nicky really did the Snoopy dance! That was a highlight for me. And before he did it, he made a real show of emptying out his pockets. Fucking funny.

Photobucket

At certain points Nicky kept moving his chair away from Mercedes (I totally forget the reasons), and it turned into a joke that the moving of the chair represented time left and the talk would be over when the chair reached the end of the stage. When Paul (Fuck off, Paul! [Hub 2 in-joke]) tried to end the session Nicky insisted there was time left and promptly move the chair to the end of the stage, sat in it, and waited patiently for the question. Oh, Nicky, I love you.

Photobucket

Mark Lutz who played played Groo in Ats and James Leary who played Clem in Btvs. These two were hilarious together. Another con highlight for me was their combined Arnold Schwarzenegger impressions.

Photobucket

Mark is incredibly funny and quick and gorgeous. Crush alert!

Repeat performance of the Snoopy dance and pocket-emptying. I could honestly watch him do it all day. Dance, monkey, dance!

The talk with Mercedes and James Leary had a few really funny moments, but mostly it was awkward as hell. James was very unwell (self-inflicted, I believe) and Mercedes was not willing to expand her answers. It was strained and I was glad when it was over.

Verdict: James Marsters is my hero, because I can't think of anyone else that would still attend a convention when they were in as much pain as he was. Nicky rocked even more than I thought he would. Mark Lutz is a very funny man and I would pay good money to see him again. The con was a screaming success and I will consider going to the next one.

I so agree with your verdict. Deciding to follow James all those years ago has never come back to bite because he's always a darling, respectful of the fans and truly worth liking. No matter what fandom one follows, James is always James and we can point and say, "I admire and like that man."

Love Nicky and Mark! They pinged off one another so well, it was hard to keep in the tears of laughter. *g*

Oh brilliant photos! This all looks like it was so much fun (except for poor wee Jimmy who looks like he was in a fair bit of pain). I wish I'd been able to go.

Love you shots of Bick doing his dance. *g*

Poor James! We really felt sorry for him and I told him he didn't look like he should be there, and he replied that neither did his doctor!

I felt honoured to see the Snoopy dance. Aww.

Could you at least work on her with Slade/Dick? I really can't be fending off another pairing this year, not after adding so many new ones already. *g*

It's only three days! I'm off on Friday and back on Monday and I will be texting her to make sure you're both behaving yourselves! :P

Thank you so much, luv for your marvelous generosity. You could sit back and enjoy these conventions for yourself but you go to so much trouble to make sure the rest of us get to experience all the fun too. I appreciate it so much. And poor James, the pain shows in his eyes in those photos. He's amazing. Thank you for all your hard work.

I'm not sure who her boyfriend is other than he works in realesate and they live at Pacific Heights. Nicky was just grilling her about it, like he was doing an interview.

James M was amazing this weekend but seeing him signing auto's laid on a table nearly made me sob uncontrollably :( at one point, we did a guest encounter with Nick and my friend thought she left something in the room, just before the last group guest talk...we went upstairs to look in room, she went inside, and all the guests came out the room opposite, I smiled at James M and he could barely smile back, clinging onto Steve's shoulder, and hobbling down the stairs one at a time :( soo sad, Steve asked if he wanted to go straight back to the hotel after and he just nodded like a little puppy

but...Nick Brendon is my new mega crush! Zomg he is HOT! and so funny, laid back and approachable, he so better come next year or I'ma hunt him down :P

Poor James. It's amazing that he was in that much pain yet he still attended for the entire weekend. That was way above and beyond. I was very disappointed when he couldn't attend The Hub, but then when I saw him at Hallowhedon I realised how lucky we were to see him at all!

I love Nicky so much.
