I was in Chicago for the Creation Vampire Diaries convention and I heard John Cusack was in town. How could i not nip over to Comic Con to hear the heartthrob of my teenage years talk?!?! Sadly I wasn’t lucky enough to get one of the autograph tickets, and too chicken to ask for onein the Questions section. One day I will check his hand.
It was worth every penny of the 60$ I paid the taxi driver as we were driving around trying to find the venue that I’d found quite happily by bus the day before ;(
Also managed to meet the lovely Shane West of Nikita, A Walk to Remember etc fame and Shia LeBeouf (Transformers) just happened to drop in with his own graphic novel. Also my friends were gagging to meet Chad Michael Murray so how could i not go with them and snap some photos for them?
It was my first big American con and it was unbelievable. Not sure I could face Dragon Con or the main Comic Con. They really do things on a big scale in the states. I spent hours trawling the stalls and managed to get some serious geekery including a HungerGames Pin, a Purr Puur kitty for my friend and a couple of con tshirts.
