Supernatural Con – Vancouver CA : August 28-31 2015

What an interesting and entertaining 3 days up in Vancouver over the weekend. This was not like any other convention we have been to, it was much more intense and subversive into the the whole vibe and “family” of the show and fandom. The fans were certainly all involved and thoroughly engaged in everything that was happening and the show organizers had things planned from early in the morning until late at night. The days were full with of course the panels where all the stars of the show took questions and told very funny stories of themselves and the show . They had karaoke night on Friday night and a late night concert with the house band Loud and Swain.

Most of the weekend was with the starts getting close to the fans the of course the personal autographing sessions, photo ops and meet and greets. We didn’t tale advantage of any of the photo ops or meet and greets, but we certainly spent a fair amount of time in lines waiting for autographs. The first night Nicki and I waited from around 5:00pm until after 9:00 to get Osric Chau (who played Kevin), Gil McKinney (who played Henry W.) and Tyler Johnston (who played Alfie). On Saturday, Toni and I waited from around 5:30pm to around 9:30 to get autographs from Misha Collins (who plays Castiel) and Mark Sheppard (who plays Crowley). We didn’t want to wait an extra hour plus to wait in line to get Theo Devany (who played Gavin MacLoud, so unfortunately missed his signature. I was however able to get Ruth Connell (who plays Rowena) who was super cool and was in my opinion one of the major highlights of the weekend. She was just so perky and fun. It was her first convention, but I know she will be back as she was certainly a crowd pleaser. The third day was busy with Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) with a morning panel just for the gold ticket holders and their full panel in the afternoon and autographs in the evening. I was also able to get Richard Steight Jr (who plays the Trickster/ archangel Gabriel). Richard was by far the highlight of the whole weekend in my opinion. He was the master of ceremonies and put on a great panel with Matt Cohen (who played young John Winchester) and Rob Benedict (who played Carver Edlund/ Chuck Shurley)..I got his signature on Sunday as well. He has such a great sense of humor and kept everyone laughing and engaged with everything he said.

All in all, this was a real fun show.
