MS, Con and More Artwork (S/D)  
MS Online has now posted pics of Michael's appearance at Collectormania in the UK this past weekend... check them out here

Hopefully a little preview of what I can expect this coming weekend at the Creation con in NJ. Not too crazy about those sideburns but I hope he keeps his hair like that... I love the length. :) </shallow mode off>

Speaking of the con, I just got my photo op ticket in an email (form that you have to print, fill out and bring to the con). I am getting excited about this. :) Anyone who has been to a Creation con in the past year or two, and has gotten a photo op with any of the celebs... I have a question. There's a little FAQ in my email about what to expect at the photo op. They say that the actor is seated in a chair. In the photo ops I've seen over the past couple of years, everyone is standing and the celeb has his/her arm around you. The email says they are seated...

So anyone who's gotten the photo ops and the ticket for it in email.. did your email say this also? Were things different when you went, i.e actor stands with you w/arm around you? I guess I am obsessing over this but the reason I ask is because when I went in 2004, both MS and I were seated pretty far away from each other and he had to put his arm around the back of the chair, not me. I felt I was about a million miles away from him *pouts* I noticed the photo ops for the Chicago con were a lot better so I really hope they are this way in NJ too.

Hoping my pictures turn out okay too. In 2004 they were horrible (except for the ones of Don S. Davis in the hotel lobby), last year they weren't much better (except for some pics of Teryl Rothery). One of the gals I met last year is going again and is sitting up front - she volunteered to take pics for me if I gave her my camera. I'm going to see if I can bring a backup camera too... maybe I can get some decent pics while I'm on line waiting to ask a question. I'm going to ask MS if we will see more of the friendship between the original teammates, especially Sam and Daniel, in the movies (thanks for the idea, majorsamfan !).

I'm also going to give him a Daniel drawing I just finished:

(click to enlarge)

My scanner cut off parts of it but it's supposed to say "Thank You for 10 Years of Daniel Jackson". I know Creation says that photo ops are the best time to give gifts, but I know people have given him gifts during the Q&A so I think I will do that just before I ask my question. I know someone gave Teryl Rothery a gift during her Q&A at last year's con.

I am also thinking of bringing my "Authentic Sam/Daniel Rebel" t-shirt but I don't think I want to wear it the day MS appears. I am worried about his reaction to it, LOL ;)

Just heard that Don S. Davis had to cancel his Saturday appearance because he will be filming a movie. I'm happy for him and wish him luck even though it's a shame he had to cancel. I wonder who they will be getting to replace him, or if they will be getting anyone at all this late in the game (Steve Bacic canceled earlier this month and they got Alexis Cruz to replace him... not that it affects me much since he'll be appearing on Fri and I'm going Sat and Sun).

And finally.... (wow I'm long winded this morning... LOL) I have some new artwork to show. Mostly wallpapers and icons, which are mostly Sam/Daniel (the episode series), although I have one Daniel-centric wallpaper. See them behind the cuts...

Feel free to snurch if you like... again credit not necessary but always appreciated. :)

Two things
1. The *audience* will not appreciate you giving them anything while they are on stage. It takes away from everyone's time. Yes, people do it, but I'm just sayin'...
2. Be aware of what it also says on the Creation site - that no actor has ever asked them to ship all the "gifts" for them. I gave Michael a nice photo of him I had taken at Chicago 2004 at the photo op time, and I don't think he ever even looked at it much less took it with him. The photo ops move just too quickly for that sort of thing.

You *might* have better luck leaving it with him at autograph time. I can't guarantee that. Another option is to mail it to him at Bridge Studios and just show him a copy at the con.

I don't want to minimize your fun or excitement. On the other hand, I'd hate for you to be too disappointed or hurt, either. *hugs*
jessm78: Fire and Waterjessm78 on October 30th, 2007 03:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the advice :) *hugs back*

I only thought of doing it during the Q&A because I know a few people did it during the Vancouver con and the Chicago con. I'm asking him a question anyway so I figured I'd give it to him either right before or after (and I'd be quick about it)... I'll be thinking about it...

I did give Carmen Argenziano a small collection of Jacob-centric drabbles that a few friends wrote during the autograph session last year. I'd do the same with Michael but I'm not getting any autographs from him this time (I'd buy a ticket for it, but if it's anything like last year's session it could run late and the girl I'm commuting with can't stay too late).

Okay, as long as you're prepared. Amanda always takes time with people - oohs and ahs over stuff and listens to their explanations, but I haven't had that experience as much with Michael.

And I'd hate for you to get boo'd - much less lynched - by the crowd. :D

I hope you have a great time!

I'm seeing his "limited gene pool twin" (Ben B.) on Sunday down in Burbank...at the Farscape con. (Never been to one of those, but I hear those fans are...partiers.)
jessm78: innocencejessm78 on October 30th, 2007 11:30 pm (UTC)
I've heard how good Amanda is with that (speaking of which, I'm wondering if the Virtual Hug in a Box a group of us sent her last Spring ever made its way to her). I'm not too familiar on how Michael is with it, although some girls I know from Gateworld have given him drawings and they told me he graciously accepted them. I guess it's hard to say.

Yeah, I wouldn't appreciate that either. :) I was just talking to someone else about it and she suggested I give it to him during the photo op instead. That another fan had done so and he gave them a hug while the picture was taken. Not that I'm desperately looking for a hug or anything, but if Creation says it's a good time to give gifts, I guess I could try that option.

Whatever I'm limited to if I can't go to the autograph session, I guess.

Thanks! I'll be posting a report up here (and any pics if they turn out decent) after I get back.

I hope you have a great time at the Farscape con! I've heard some things about how fun-loving those fans are too. I would have liked to go, but it's not really feasible for me to travel to Burbank right now.

Oh i love the pic!!! SO awesome!! And the walls! So pretty... which one to use?

Have a good time at the con!

Thanks hon! :) I was looking at it again and the scanner doesn't do it much justice... the coloring looks a lot better than that (at least to me anyway).

Ooh I just realized - I messed up the html for one of the walls (I couldn't do it the "photobucket" way in the Rich Text format...my browser is being ornery). But thanks I'm glad you like them!

And thanks... wish you could be there too! But you will have fun seeing AT in London right? :D
Christine (aka) Pineapple >^..^<chris4short on October 30th, 2007 04:58 pm (UTC)
I bet - scanners can't always be the best.

Yup AT in May! The countdown has begun... so close and so far!! Glad it's so far out so I can start saving like a mad woman when I get a job... :D
jessm78: kissesjessm78 on October 30th, 2007 11:35 pm (UTC)
Yeah and mine likes to go all wonky sometimes...

Ah soooo nice!! I really wish I could go - but I have no idea what May is going to be like. Was pretty much planning to go when the lovely accident happened... *sigh* But I'm sure it will be fun!

Hope you have a good time at the con. Wish I could go. ::pouts:: I'm over it. ::grin:: Like the walls, and made me all fuzzy to see that you used my suggestion for Enigma. Take care.
jessm78jessm78 on October 30th, 2007 11:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Aw, I wish you could go too. I'll be a lone S/D shipper in a sea of...well...mostly D/V people. *frets* Oh well, as long as they are nice about it and don't talk ship. :) I met a few S/J shippers last year and they were very nice.

Thanks, I'm glad you like them. :) Hee hee, I did love that idea.
annikamalfoyannikamalfoy on October 31st, 2007 04:04 pm (UTC)
Well I'll be there in S/D spirit if that helps. ::grin::
jessm78jessm78 on November 1st, 2007 09:03 pm (UTC)
*grin* It does, it does :D
pygmymuse on October 30th, 2007 07:00 pm (UTC)
Dunno anything about cons, so I'll stay away from that subject.

I like the icons & the walls. I've complimented some of them before, but now I've done them all, right?
jessm78: being therejessm78 on October 30th, 2007 11:33 pm (UTC)
No biggie about that.

Thanks... yep I believe you have, but it's okay. :)

Lovely wallpapers and icons (the Vintage Twins one is so cute!)! :)
jessm78jessm78 on October 30th, 2007 11:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks!! :) I couldn't resist the Vintage Twins one... they have almost identical facial expressions there :D It's adorable!

*snicker* One of the gals from GW who is also going suggested that we all bring razors with us and show them to him during the Q&A :D Not sure I'd go that far but yeah, I am not too fond of the sideburns. Love the hair though and I'm hoping he keeps it that way for this weekend!

Yeah I am thinking I will get in line as early as I can so he'll have time to answer my question. I'm not sure how many people are going to this con - I don't even think the Gold tickets are sold out yet. But I'm sure he'll get asked a lot of questions, and I need to ask this one. :)

*blushes* Thanks so much, I'm glad you like them! I just couldn't resist putting the ToT Daniel in that drawing. I just love how he's so full of awe in most of that episode. :D

LOL! That could be a good explanation! Hee hee... love the captions... can just hear those two saying that!! :)

I'm doing well, thanks! Got a good report from the orthopedic surgeon's office. I have to go back in 6 weeks and if all goes well they will discharge me. So I'm glad that I'm making some good progress.

I would like to add that in Chicago people have given Michael stuff while on stage and you have alot of people doing that pretty much its difficult for him to grab everything; he was given a tshirt, a letter, pic(drawing) and think that was it so you have more people then you giving him stuff on stage and since when his hour is up he has to autograph the banner behind him and then go to autos he has a tendancy to forget to take the stuff and left up there on stage for the crew of creation to pick up now who gets it after that not sure but you have to remember he is given lots of stuff over the weekend so whatever he takes back with him in suitcase unless suitcase packed and ready to leave; in that case then staff from creation will send to him. So not to put a damper but auto line is best line you don't want your stuff with others left on stage. I agree give to him in auto line you don't want lynching since most people would rather have that time for questions.
jessm78: Fire and Waterjessm78 on November 1st, 2007 09:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah I was talking to a few other people and that was the impression I got. I may just give it to him during the photo op, will try to be quick about it since I know the photo ops go by very fast (on their site they said 15 seconds and I remember it being quick in 2004). I would give it during autograph session but looking at the schedule it looks pretty late on Sun. and Strider6 can't stay too late.

Then again I may be able to get some gold tickets (very slim chance) and I think auto's are included in that. Guess I will see what happens.
