because a lot of you requested it, here it is: fan expo 2014 aka the story of how matt smith is an saint like angel on this planet
okay so i got to fanexpo on friday and went straight to line up for matt’s panel, and bree and i got seats pretty close to the stage, and i lined up super fast to ask a question. he came out on stage and let me just tell you all he is fucking handsome as HELL in person like he is goddamn gorgeous i literally forgot i was gay for like 5 seconds. so he was a sweet little gentleman and said hello to all his canadian fans and he ran with a fan onstage and gave hilarious, thoughtful, and kind answers to everyone’s questions. my turn was next and i somehow managed to ask my question without sobbing/puking/fainting!!! i told him i was a huge 11/river fan and the crowd cheered and i asked how it was to work with alex, and he told a story of how alex took him and karen out to dinner at a restaurant called woods in cardiff, and that he believes eleven and river have something special and if he sees her and capaldi together, he will “bang his fists on the table”, also he said she is motherly and sexy. (same) so that was AMAZING and then we ventured back up to his autograph line, and i wasn’t getting an autograph because i didn’t have enough money for that and a photo op, but i got in line because i had a gift for him and i just needed to tell him what he had done for me. so we waited and he came out and then in about 20 minutes i was up! the managers at his table with him told me to be super quick, so i went up and he gave me the biggest smile and said hi and asked how i was, and i said i was great and i gave him his gift, a little stuffed giraffe with big eyes (for the drunk giraffe reference, ya know)! he took it and said “OH WOW, NOW THAT’S COOL!” and said he loved his big eyes and shook it around and said thank you! i was shaking by that point and i told him that when i had to say thank you because when i started watching doctor who i didn’t have many friends and that while watching it i felt as if i had a friend in him, and amy, and rory to which he nodded and said “YOU DO!” and he was listening to every word i said, he was genuinely interested in what i was saying and was so touched, his face just lit up and he pointed to my phone and said “do you want me to sign that for you?” and i said oh no no i didn’t pay for an autograph! and he said “no really i can sign that for you!” and he took my phone and HE SIGNED MY FRIGGIN SWAN QUEEN PHONE CASE I’M SCREAMING and he said it was wonderful to meet me and he said to remember that he is my friend like he literally said “remember, i’m your friend!!!” and i just started to cry and i said thank you so much and he smiled and looked so happy and waved to me. so after that bree had to take me to a corner so i could literally just sit on the ground and sob hahahaha. a little while after that we went to line up for his photo op because that line was MASSIVE, we waited for almost 2 hours! we didn’t get much time with him because there were still a ton of people, but i went in the room and he was like “hold on i have to go to the washroom!!!” omg what a cutie and he came back with a beer in his hand and said “i’m definitely NOT drinking beer!!!” and looked around and took a sip and said “it’s the british in me you see!” and then we walked over and said “oh it’s so good to see you again!” and he put his arms around me and bree. we weren’t allowed to hug him/kiss his cheek for time reasons, but while we got the photo he was rubbing my back and said thank you to us and looked right at me and said “remember, you have friends, and it’s okay!” and i started to cry again, like he literally remembered me after meeting so many fans and he wanted to make sure i remembered what he said to me and he wanted me to know that everything was okay. i will never, ever, ever forget this experience. i’ve met my fair share of celebrities, but matt smith was a complete angel. i felt like i could have told him my life story and he would’ve listened to every word and then given me a hug and a cup of tea. i will never be able to find words to say thank you enough to him. matt smith is one of a kind, and thanks to him, never again will i utter the words “i have no friends”.
My cosplays from this year’s Fan Expo.
I cosplayed my Mandalorian OC, Te’gar, on Thursday and Ling Yao (Fullmetal Alchemist) on Saturday.
Note: I put some maybe funny captions on the appropriate Ling pictures.
After many redesigns of the hood, how it would be attached, a few mental breakdowns, and many broken needles later…. Astrid is finally done. (Talk about your last minute costumes)
There are so many corners I cut with this costume, so I am not completely satisfied with the way it came out workmanship wise (during one of the aforementioned mental breakdowns there was use of a stapler……….bad decisions may have been made). Hot Glue, Sew-on and Self-Adhesive velcro, and optical illusions were my best friends throughout this entire project. It’ll definitely be remade when I have more time and better materials.
As for now, and for Fan Expo…. I’m going to have lots of fun wearing Astrid and being way too warm for August. Here’s to finding a winter con near me soon.
ALSO THIS IS THE FIRST COSTUME WHERE I WILL FINALLY GET TO COSPLAY WITH THE WONDERFUL AND WONDERFULLY TALENTED À Lanna Mode!!!!! We accidentally have cosplayed opposite series numerous times (Her Cheshire from Young Justice whilst I was Ty Lee from A:tla, and then my Artemis from YJ and her Katara from A:tla) BUT FINALLY WE WILL GET TO COSPLAY TOGETHER AND I AM SO EXCITED. Her Valka is freaking AMAZING and I’m so excited to see it in person. Excuse my excitement, it’s quarter after two in the morning and I should be sleeping ^.^
It’s finally happening.
