C2E2 2018

Post by vmars322 » April 9th, 2018, 5:47 pm

On Friday and Sunday I attended C2E2. (I skipped Saturday and went to Heroes FanFest). I wasn’t planning on meeting any of the celebs…no one was really on my radar, but when I realized Justin Hartley was doing selfies I went for it.

Justin had a 10:30 signing and by the time I got up to the table it was time for his break. I decided to just sit in line since it would only be about an hour wait. Right at noon Justin arrived! I paid my money ($50) and while I was waiting for my change his handler got all snippy…wanting me to move it along. Relax, dude! There were maybe 30 people in line…it wasn’t going to take Justin that long to get through the crowd.

Justin was very nice. He shook my hand and we introduced ourselves to each other. His handler snapped the photo and I told him I was nervous and he said not to be. He was very sweet. After the photo was done I told him I love This is Us and can’t wait for the next season. He told me he appreciated the support and we exchanged a quick hug. The photo came out great!

As I mentioned I went to Heroes FanFest on Saturday. Since the event is bigger than it used to be it is now spread out in two halls. The staff was EXTREMELY unprepared and checking in was a disaster. I played dumb and was able to cut most of the lines to get in, but it still took forever. JDM and Norman Reedus were the biggest draws…lines that went on for what seemed like miles. I was debating getting a selfie with Lili Reinhart, but when I realized she was charging $50 (and looked like she rolled out of bed) I changed my mind.

A fun, but tiring weekend!

$50 for a selfie is ridiculous. Justin’s a great guy and Lili is super sweet, but $50 for a picture with your phone. :holy:

Thanks!

Forgot to mention...Nicholas Brendon was at Heroes in the vendors' area...at a random Funko Pop booth...selling autographs and selfies for $40 a pop...how the mighty have fallen.

The JH photo did turn out great! Sucks about the HVFF debacle and Lili's price...I believe that was her pro op price last year!

When I was there Saturday...there was NO rushing of the lines. Even for ones that were hundreds deep like Milo.

Hartley's pro op sold out on Saturday. Originally he was not doing table ops, but offered to since the pros got sold out. Milo was $50 combos.

Thanks!! Yeah, Lili doesn't warrant $50 for a selfie...nor $50 for an auto...with a $100 combo (in my opinion, but it's all who you like :))

Oh! That makes sense. They both seemed to be doing good business.

Yeah....especially Milo. Or it could have been the fact that he was taking 10mins with each person.
