Aw. Poor bloody and hurting Sam looking to big brother Dean to make the right decision.
Finally got all my VanCon photos backed up. Phew! Feel better now. Now to start fixing them so I can begin posting. It's a step-by-step process people. I'm also gearing up to resume posting at my pre-con level. Hoo-boy! :P
Have a good Saturday everyone. *hugs*

Vancouver BC

Things learned at VanCon 2013

:: Misha should come with a warning label, especially for sandwich photo-ops! He likes to body slam into you and if you're not careful or ready you could end up in a heap on the floor (not that that would entirely be a bad thing *g*).

:: Having too many photos printed out for autographs is really a bad idea. Commit to a decision at home...and do it early!

:: Post-it notes for auto personalization do not interact well with certain photo papers (like Epson's Lustre). I now have sticky patches on some of my autographed pics. Bleh.

:: Mark Sheppard refuses to smile in any photo-op.

:: Making Jensen do the whole throw-head-back-and-laugh is the best feeling ever. :)

:: Jim Michaels gives awesome hugs...and is a big flirt!

:: Trying to find locations in the woods is really HARD! A tree is a tree is a tree.

:: It pays to ask the volunteers if a guest is personalizing during autos. You might just get lucky where others will not. ;)

:: Make sure the guests use the right colored pen (black or silver) for your pic to sign. If you can't see it, what's the point?

:: Some filming locations that are no more: Oasis Hotel and Accurate Iron Works.

:: Bring an umbrella!!!! It does rain in Vancouver in August sometimes. D'oh!

:: Make sure a guest's auto does or does not come with the Gold Ticket. I missed out on getting Rachel Miner's auto. Had a photo all printed and everything. :(

:: Stop getting photo-ops with short, female celebrities. Unless it's Felicia Day and then it's alright.

:: Always grab 2 copies of the schedule. You'll need them.

:: Being last in a photo-op line is actually pretty cool, especially if the guest doesn't have to dash off to be somewhere else. Added chat time! :D

:: Don't bother bringing things to do during "down time". There is no "down time". It's just extra stuff you gotta carry around.

:: Have more than one battery for a camera.

:: Even members of the crew recognize that Season 6 was not one of their best.

:: Put episode numbers & titles at the beginning of each Filming Locations list. Will save on having to remember what scene happened in which ep when you're out location hunting.
