My maternal grandmother and I never shared a lot of common interests. But when Castle started, it suddenly gave us something to always talk about when we saw each other. She loved the show and also loved Nathan Fillion. He was the only actor I ever heard her talk about as much as Tom Selleck.
She once offered me her Castle DVDs, and I politely declined, because I was waiting for then to come out on blu-ray.
I got the news last Wednesday morning that she had passed away in her sleep that morning. I was in San Diego for Comic Con and on Thursday, I walked by the Jason Palmer art booth and nearly lost it when I saw the Castle stuff. I texted my sister that night and asked her to please make sure I got these DVDs.
So now these are pretty much the most important DVDs I own.
Proof that Orlando Jones is one of the coolest celebs around. First I randomly saw him in the back halls of the convention center and managed to tell him that Sleepy Hollow rules without totally fangirling out and he smiled and replied kindly.
Then, shortly after, I realized I was walking by the Sleepy Hollow signing, so I was trying to snap some pics. And Orlando Jones totally posed for me! Even after a camera man blocked my shot, he made sure I got the pic after the cameraman moved.
This is my 10th year going to SDCC and the very first year I’ve ever gotten a commissioned sketch from an artist there. Words cannot describe the epic amounts of squeeing that happened when I saw it.
Lookit Sammy’s wooden Ruby dagger! And Dean’s Colt dart gun! Love!
It’s Patrick Ballesteros. And while he doesn’t have any Supernatural prints available, he’s got of other amazing fandom works. If you’re at SDCC, he’s in Artist Alley, table DD08, if you’re not, he has stuff online too.
You’d think this would just be bundled with a box of tissues and a coupon for Häagen Daz.
I do SDCC old school. Notebook in my pocket with everything from booth visits to signings to food stops written in. With my own tab system.
Found myself in a Claire’s while trying to find something for a project I’m working on. Happened by this on a shelf.
It’s a pen. A giant pen covered in little silicone nubs.
In a store for items marketed at tween and teen girls.
Just holding it for the picture made me feel uncomfortable.
Discussing my Supernatural prop buying/building spree with a friend.
He meant this as a limit. I took it as an awesomely hilarious idea.
Some people buy “Bobby Singer” hats and then try to make them look used and aged.
I actually use mine. In a decade, this is gonna be the best Bobby Singer hat ever.
