This was a very short, but good trip.
We got started later than we’d planned and waited in line a lot longer then planned to get our tickets, but we did get in the doors before they capped the people due to fire codes. That would’ve been awful, a four-hour drive to not get in.
The pants…I did finish my olive bdu pants at approximately 9:10pm the night before – though they still need a proper hem. I will say that I’m not happy with them, but satisfied with them for now. They were much better then the last pair and fit better, so I’m okay with them.
Met some great people at the convention and since most of the time the four of us were together (two Atlantis, two SG-1) we got the obligatory; “It’s a Stargate Team, three guys and a girl! That’s great!”
Several Stargate costumers were there and we ran into a few more that were going to be in costume on Sunday. It’s always cool to have a group to putz around the convention with and as our friend Justin pointed out (he’s the John Shepherd clone in the sunglasses) if you have four and not just two people together you’re more easily recognizable and photographed. Funny how that works. 😉
By the skin of our teeth and some quick talking by my hubby, we did get to see Amanda Tapping. She re-enlisted him in the Navy in 2006 and he hasn’t seen her since then. I’ll post that picture later but she was completely friendly and very sweet. It was great that she took time out to chat with her fans and didn’t rush anyone. She seems to be one of those people that are very gracious, humble and thankful for all their fans.
More to come…
