I was able to sneak a selfie of myself and Lou
I finally decided who I was going to get a picture with next, Drea de Matteo from #TheSopranos and #DesperateHousewives ( I LOVE and MISS DHW). My main decision had a lot to do with that she was the cheapest at $20 for a picture. I would have gotten a picture with everyone but since my money tree withered up, I had to resort to penny pinching and thus my decision to snag Drea. She was starting to put her jacket on so I jumped right in, she was kind enough to spare some time. Her handler took 2 pictures like super quick, I thanked her and walked off. I took a look at the pictures of us and I looked horrible. One, my eyes were closed and the other, I had a stupid look on my face. So I walked back over there and asked for a redo, that I’d even erase the other two. She said “I didn’t have to do that” and she would take another one with me. We joked around, and the guy kept taking picture after picture. At one point she even tickled me, it was a fun and awkward photo shoot. I thanked them and then went on my way, making sure to check and see that I had a good picture. Out of the dozen or so I was able to find a nice one.
Well, this is the longest blog of your life and I apologize but I can’t help myself. I promise, it’s almost over.
It was after 5 or 6 and most of the booths were cleared out, I decided to call it quits. I found Pat sitting at a table and joined him, it was nice to rest. As we were chilling I saw that Adrian was packing it up for the night and last minuet I had to get a picture with him too. I walked over and put on my cutest smile, they were kind enough to let me sneak in a quick one. The man that was with Adrian took the picture for us and of course before I could leave I had to check to see if I looked good in it. Adrian, looks at me and goes “Is it good?” I nodded yes, he smiled, I thanked him and that was that.
When that was all said and done, we made our way towards the door when my husband told me there was a #DoctorWho actor over here taking pictures with people. I never watched the show or knew any of the actors in it but I jumped in to get a picture with the guy anyways. I Googled the show but couldn’t find this guy anywhere, I saw someone had tagged him as the tenth doctor and some of the pictures looked like him. Well, I posted the picture but was told that wasn’t the actor but a look a like. OH well, my mistake. I did find that he is on a web series about the show on YouTube, so that kinda counts…right?
Finally the floor was closing and we decided it was time to leave. We had a nice adventure but Pat was disappointed that the comic books were not as plentiful as he would have liked. I thought Wizard World was a little greedy with everything, especially with the celebrities and all the fees. I also think that Wizard World has strict rules, which was why I was dissed on the selfies. It seemed some wanted to take the picture but that they were scared to death to give in, haha. I’d like to know how that all works, and who gets paid and where all the money goes to. For now, I’ll keep a low profile. Maybe some day, I’ll figure it out.
I would have LOVED to get more celebrity faces and I feel that I tried really hard to make that happen but the cards were against me that day. I also didn’t get any autographs, just money I felt I better hold onto for food and such and it’s not like I plan on selling the autographs anyways…so no need for them at this time. PLUS. I like a picture anyways, shows proof you were there and is worth a thousand words from what I hear.
ALSO, might I add. Everyone was super friendly, from the staff, to the customers, all the booth people and mostly the celebrities. Can’t be easy sitting there for hours having the same conversation with creepy fans day after day. Mad props and a great big THANK YOU!
There were other celebrities floating around too, these were the ones I got pictures of. There are a few others I didn’t recall seeing while I was there or missed completely, exciting – I KNOW!
A lot of the celebrity folk hung out and around the Cleveland area, including the Casino AND were nice and taking pictures…probably for free I might add. Next time I’ll pay more attention and chill at the Black Jack tables, I might have better luck. It’s very hard though to be on call, especially living on the eastside which is a good 15 to 20 minutes away, not like I can just take a walk down the block. Parking is expensive and traffic can be horrible, not to mention the weather we’ve been having here lately.
I think that is it for now, enjoy the pictures. Some of the staff were super serious and wouldn’t let you take pictures of the stars but I did my best. I have more pictures that maybe I’ll upload later.
Ohhh and I went back before I left and gave Scott another hug, we talked for a minuet and then I let the man be. If I was thinking I could of had Pat take pictures or record it…but I didn’t think of it till after the fact. Also. It appears that Mr.Wilson hugs everyone, young, old, and ugly. I thought we shared a moment…I still think I was his favorite though.
Thank you for your patience, I know this was long.
