After snagging an autograph ticket for Ray and Kerry at RTX, and trying for a week (to no avail) to come up with what I’d even say to them, I decided to go with some fanart instead (a picture is worth a thousand words, right?). This was meant to be done during my flight to Texas, but I ended up working on it right up until 4am the night before the signing session (hence the bad lighting and crappy camera photo). Was all totally worth it though for the hugs I got! <3 Ray’s picture features X-Ray, roses, Percival the ocelot, cakelessness, the Brown Crown, and all the best Rayisms! Colored pencil & pen.

SO I MET RALPH AT COMIC-CON AND LET ME TELL YOU THE WHOLE STORY:
Kay, so we arrive and I see his booth thing. He’s signing people’s pictures and stuff and I’m peering at him out of the corner of my eye and he looks up at me and smiles, and I smile back. It was a short, but awesome moment.
Then it was time for me to take the picture with him, but I got the wrong directions from a worker there aND MISSED THE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY. So I met this girl (who was literally my spirit animal) and the same thing happened to her, and we were in the autograph line with tickets for pictures. When we get up there, we tell the worker what happened and she said “I’m sorry, I don’t think you guys can take the pictures. Just buy another ticket for tomorrow and come back.”
I WAS ON THE VERGE OF SOBBING, BUT THEN RALPH SAYS “No, I can take a picture with them, it’s no bother at all!”AND THE LADY NODDED. THE GIRL I MET WENT FIRST, THEN IT WAS MY TURN.
I walked up and he smiled at me and said “Hi, how was your day?” and I replied with “Pretty great, how about yours?” and he said “Tiring,” and I said “I bet,” and we laughed and shared a moment.
Then he asked if my friend ( @shipyoulikefedex ) and I were going to the panel, and I said “Probably not, we’ll be driving home by then,” aND I KID YOU NOT HE REPLIED WITH “Aw, I wish I could ride with you guys.” AND I SAID VERY CALMLY AND COOLLY, “I’d gladly take you” aND WE LAUGHED TOGETHER.
He asked what my name was after that and I told him “Mckayla” and HE FREAKING SAID “I like that name, a lot,” and I told him “thank you so much!”
Then it was during the actual picture and @shipyoulikefedex had a wire to hold up some of the hair on her cosplay (which was Canada from Hetalia aND IT WAS BEAUTIFUL) and he said “Don’t stab my eye out with that thing” IN THE MOST DAD VOICE EVER AND I WAS STILL CALM AND COOL.
During the picture, we put our arms around each other (like you do when you take pictures) and I was really hesitant to get all close to him and he fREAKING (GENTLY) PULLS ME CLOSER TO HIM SO OUR BODIES WERE TOGETHER (not to be weird)! THEN AFTER THE PHOT WAS TAKEN HE
LIKE, I DIDN’T EVEN HAVE TO ASK HIM, HE JUST DID IT, AND I HUGGED BACK AND AFTER THAT I HAD TO HURRY (all of this was done in less than four minutes) AND I TOLD HIM VERY QUICKLY THAT I LOVED HIS WORK AND HE IS SUCH AN AMAZING ACTOR, AND THAT I LOVED HIS WORK AGAIN AND HE
“I love you, Mckayla,”
AND I SAID WHILE TRYING NOT TO SCREAM
“I love you too,” TheN I HAD TO LEAVE AND I STARTED SOBBING IN THE BATHROOM
I DIDN’T THINK HE’D BE THAT NICE AND HE LOOKED SO GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! THAT SUIT WAS NOOOOOICE ON HIM AND HE WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND HIS VOICE
I’ll upload the pictures once I get them printed. bUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO HAPPY. HE REMEMBERED MY NAME AFTER TWO MINUTES AND HE SAID HE LOVED ME AND I JUST.
I WANT HIM TO AT LEAST ADOPT ME
This has been a very important PSA from this psycho
Recently, some con goers at TorCon had their J2 autographs refunded
and were given the explanation that it was a “scheduling/time conflict”. Not long after, all the autograph sales for 2017 cons were “sold out” or frozen. This left a lot of con- goers a little nervous
about the fate of their own J2 autographs at other cons and wondering what happening. And because I have two J2 autograph tickets
for SeaCon, I wanted to find out what was going on. Was it a scheduling
conflict for real? Or was it something else? So, I emailed Gary Berman of Creation. Keep reading below to see my conversation with him.

Even though Crystal couldn’t make it yesterday, I still picked up two more autographs to add to my collection at Bitecon. But I have to say, the piece of art I’m most proud of seeing signed, IS THIS STICKER OF STILES PISSING ON SCOTT’S SANDCASTLE XD
I love the Agents of SHIELD cast so much because never once do they give out the vibe that they are better than their fans. They tweet with us and remember us from panel to panel and find us in line for autograph tickets at two in the morning to play uno and give us candy and invite people up on stage and hug them so hard it lifts them off the ground and snapchat almost everything so that we can know what’s going on and listen to our concerns and stand up for us and I love these people so much
I’ve had this idea in my head since the first time I watched Misha draw a heart on an autograph. He has inspired me and given me confidence I never thought I’d have, and this is the perfect little reminder. I got a Sunday autograph ticket and started to seriously stress out because everything was running so late but when it was my turn I looked at him and said, “shit, I’m so nervous” because I’m very classy and went over to his side of the table and knelt beside him. I’m surprised none of the CE staff squawked about me getting too close and if they did I didn’t notice. I told him I’d love it if he drew a heart on my wrist, and so he did. I said I was shaky and he said, “so am I! I’ll give you some choices” and proceeded to draw 3 more hearts. I decided on just the first one and had it tattooed on Tuesday and I love it so, so much.
Ok, backing up a bit - this idea occurred to me while I was trudging through making the chain mail for my cosplay (pics here!), in one of those wandering mind thoughts that startles you, and I laughed out loud and then was like, ah yeah right.
buuuuuut, it stayed in my mind, and when I decided I wanted to use my autograph ticket for the shield, I was like, mm, I’d kinda like him to get to see the whole ensemble (…except the wig and make-up and shield…) together and I don’t want to cosplay that late in the evening, so it makes sense to dress for the picture…and then I was just like, FUCK IT ILL ASK.
So then we get there and I don’t hyperventilate (fuckin success), and he’s super cute with my sister and then he turns to me and he’s like, “Hi - nice.” And I die a little, its fine, cuz he smiles all big and checks out the outfit and shield, and I go, “Thanks! Um, if its alright, would you be my swooning damsel, on my arm?” And he laughs and I kind of shepherd him over to my right and put my arm around his waist (I’m just one big exclamation mark at this point tbh). And I forgot to take my glasses off, and I wasn’t quite ready for the picture, but who gives a fuck because JENSEN FUCKING ACKLES SWOONED IN MY ARMS.
Okay guys, let me tell you a thing about how wonderful Jared Padalecki is. I went to 2014 Burcon and had an autograph tickets to meet J2. I was already crying after meeting Jensen. So here I was a sobbing mess as I came up to Jared’s table. First he asked me how I was and I said that I was great but overwhelmed. Jared then proceeded to reach out his hand for me to take and ask “What’s your name, sweetheart?” I took his hand and replied, and he went and said “Hi, I’m Jared.” Let me remind you he keeps PERFECT eye contact. I was freaking out and giggling. He then dropped my hand to sign my picture. He then asked where I was from and if I was having a good time. The entire week I wrote and came up with a letter for him describing how he had changed my life and helped immensely with my depression. I also said “You continue to inspire and motivate me everyday.”, inside of it. Once I asked if he would take it, he said of course and then his eyes lit up and he said “Wait, is this for me to read later?” And I nodded. He said, “Thank you. This is very sweet. I’ll definitely read it.” He then placed it in his breast pocket on his shirt. I was dying and completely sobbing. Then my dad was next to me. Jared realized I hadn’t left and asked, “Do you guys know each other?” I replied and told him that he was my Dad. Then Jared stopped and set down his sharpie and looked my dad straight and dead serious in the eyes and said “You have a wonderful daughter.. Take care of her…” He then laughed and said “And keep those boys away from her!” Then my dad said thank you and shook his hand. I then proceeded to walk out of the con sobbing until I got home later that night. That same night, Jared tweeted and said “Y'all continue to inspire and motivate me.” And yeah, that’s exactly what I wrote in my letter… Not sure if he did that as a secret shoutout, but I like that think that.. That cast is just amazing…
THE KATOU KAZUE AUTOGRAPH SIGNING IS BEING HELD BY ANIME EXPO.
That means we’ll have to get up at the ass crack of dawn & be in line at 8am for a ticket at the AUTOGRAPH TICKET BOOTH on THE DAY OF.
So if you want to go on Saturday AND Sunday you WILL HAVE TO BE IN LINE AT 8am ON BOTH DAYS.
Katou Sensei will sign TWO THINGS.
The Autograph Ticket booth is totally different from the event ticketing booths!!!
I hope I’m posting this soon enough to inform and assist someone, ANYONE - you have no idea what I had to go through just for this information. (and Info Services was no help!)
(I didn’t make it to the Barnes & Noble signing because they posted last night at 10pm it was for the first 100 people who showed up at 9am. *sigh* Narcolepsy is a cruel bitch. No guarantees I will make it to ANY signing ‘cos ADA Services here is a joke.)
Please note: this is from this year’s program book, but some small details may change. After our RTX App is ready, that is where you will be able to find the most up-to-date information.
All panels are first come first serve, however; this year, Autographs will be ticketed online prior to the event to ensure fair game to all attendees. We will have information on that soon, so stay tuned to the RTXEvent Twitter and Rooster Teeth website.
If we are waiting in line for Hall H Doctor Who panel in the morning, can we still go to the Autograph signing?
Hmm, probably not.
In order to go to the signing, you’ll need to get a ticket from the drawing which takes place at 9am in the Autograph Area (details here) and there’s a high chance you’re going to have to wait in line for that. Now, we don’t know how long the line to get into Hall H for the 2:15pm panel will be, but it will be long. So long that you might need to get there around 9am in order to get into the Hall (if not earlier, it’s up to you).
It’s entirely possible that the autograph drawing could take five minutes, but if you’re not willing to risk your chance at seeing the panel, we’d recommend that you choose one.
The Group B autograph session on Saturday began at around 4:30 PM, an hour behind schedule because Sebastian was still doing photo ops, so we had a long wait. I was near the end of the VIP line because I had to bring Alberto back to the hotel so he could rest after our busy Saturday. The Wizard World assistant I met at the table took my autograph tickets, counted the stuff I had for Sebastian to sign and announced to the other assistant next to Sebastian “She’s got five!” Wow, I felt like a celebrity myself for a moment. LOL I had the chance to chat with Sebastian while he signed #TheMartian Blu-ray, Winter Soldier photo, our photo op print, Captain America: The Winter Soldier book and GQ Style magazine, which he gloriously defaced by drawing a mustache and eye patch on the cover photo of Robert Downey Jr. before signing. I wish I had filmed Sebastian when this happened, but I did say “OMG! I’m going to post this.” Sebastian flipped through the pages, trying to find his own photos, but then signed the cover. I now am the proud owner of an original work of art by Sebastian Stan himself.
