Damn you Chris........  
 Here I promised myself I would never give money to Creation again! Dude, Chris is going to Stargate Con in Vancouver. Looks like I'm doing that con again :D :D I have no will power. So the question should I pay the outrageous money for a gold ticket or wait & get crappier seats. Plus side its quicker to get autographs over with, better seats, free autographs, etc. 

Also, if you are going drop me a line, I need a room mate. Probably won't buy my ticket for a bit though, by December anyway.

Plus side of not being in the front? When he repeats something you said on stage it's far easier to shrink down and hide if you're in the back. LOL.

True, the only really sucky thing about the back, is the horrible wait for autographs.

I'm going for at least a day (maybe 2 if i can swing it) and will need a roomie too...but if I do go I'm definitely going cheap seats as I'm currently around $1000 behind where I should be finances wise right now. :( {and it's not *my* fault. which kind of sucks}

Awww, that kind of sucks :( I'm not where I should be finances wise either, although maybe partly due from too many cons last year :)

I should probably do the cheap seats too, I haven't decided yet. We'll see if they sell out of gold before I buy them, I probably won't buy until December maybe.
mackenziesmommamackenziesmomma on November 10th, 2010 05:37 am (UTC)
Well unless I can snag a deal on a gold ticket later I really don't care if I go gold or not (as much as I'd like to do the set tour I know I can't justify that kind of expenditure on a *seat* and some ink ;))

Plus for me it'll depend of if my whole thing with the ex is settled by then or not (*insert really long groan of annoyance here*) ;)
jennifer jensenjenniferjensen on November 10th, 2010 05:41 am (UTC)
Yeah, other than the set tour there isn't a big deal to do gold, even with the silver pckg you get free auto's too.

My big moneysaver for this con is that I'm close enough I can drive up for it. If worse really came to worse I also have several friends in-city who have standing offers of couches or spare rooms I can surf.

And with my new camera I can get pretty awesome pictures from just about anywhere no matter the lighting (I *love* my new canon *pats camera*)

Cool, what kind of camera do you have?
mackenziesmommamackenziesmomma on November 10th, 2010 05:51 am (UTC)
I was able to snag a *sweet* deal on a Canon SX20IS this summer. Some guy bought it for his wife and it had 'too many features' for her and so he put it on CL for like $150. I call him Flynn (the camera. Not the guy.)

ooooh, sweet :)

Yeah he once took a picture from 20+ feet away through a window of a thistle that you can see sunlight glinting on the thistles leaves.

Sweet. I'm about 90% sure I'll be there. I'm about 2 hour car drive away, so it's no biggie to get there. No idea about roomies, but if you need one as the time gets closer.....
jennifer jensen: SPN: impalajenniferjensen on November 11th, 2010 05:55 am (UTC)
Nice, I wish. Its a 14 hour drive for me so I just fly. I've decided to get the cheap seats (haven't decided on silver or general admission)

I'm an expert at sitting in the back.

Plus side is that you can get up and leave and no one really is bothered. If there is a big head in front of you it is difficult to get pictures so try to sit on the aisle.

Yes - you are near the end of the line for autographs so don't wait. Go to your room, go out to dinner. The line will still be there when you get back, don't worry. After the first day you'll have an idea of timing.

I think I sat in the back the first year I went, I got silver. Although it was my first time at a convention so I stayed in the convention hall the whole time but I've learned since then :D

Chris is ♥

I might have talked myself into going. I"m probably just going to do the cheap seats so it won't be that expensive and I just can't say no to going to Vancouver.

Chris is such a great actor. The gold pass is kind of fun, but it really is SO expensive. I only did it once, but had never spent that much on a con before that. But the set tour was amazing - but when I went a few years back they still had SG-1 and SGA up. :-) Now I'm going to have to look up the new Stargate Con - curses!
jennifer jensen: SG: Stargatejenniferjensen on November 11th, 2010 05:46 am (UTC)
Yes, I love Chris.

Yeah, I probably won't do the gold pass, I've done it a few times. I might do the Silver package though, I think the set tour comes with it too and its actually a lot cheaper. Either that or the general admission I guess.

Cool to go again, even if you wind up in the cheap seats :)

I had told myself I'll do one convention, just one, just to see how it goes.

and I loved it.

I am not tempted to go to a new SPN convention but what about Stargate, huh? *big sigh*

*must not think about it*

They are always very fun. I don't know how I would feel about a Supernatural convention but I always love the Stargate ones.
