Where are you traveling from?

The valley

How many years have you been dating?

Since 1998

What was your favorite panel and why?

The very first The Walking Dead sign. It was in this little room with a lot of letters on a Thursday or Friday morning. I was actually there for the first panel of the day which was a remake of Five-O’s from Hawaii (still don’t know why they were there), but they were handing out 70s style shirts that said “I got Lei’d at Comic Con”. I was NOT leaving without her that year. So I’m sitting in the audience next to a guy (my friends were NOT getting up that early for a t-shirt). The guy next to me says, “So you’re here for the undead?” Me: “No, a t-shirt, what is it? The Walking DeadHe gives the perfect description, “It’s like what happens after the credits of a zombie movie”, and that’s how a very long love affair with TWD was born. Oh and j got groped by a zombie in the audience and it was awesome. Plus I didn’t know the guy from Boondock Saints was in it and he hung around after and took pictures because us “saints” fans were pretty vocal.

What is your favorite exhibitor or artist stand and why?

Cinequest – always has the best supernatural stuff.

What is your favorite item that you brought back from the convention (swag, exclusive, merch, etc.)?

A Battlestar Galactica REAL toaster that burns Frak Off on bread!!!!

What was your favorite autograph session and why?

Supernatural

Tell us about your most memorable celebrity encounter?

On my way back to the hotel, I literally ran into the creators of game of thrones in my Lady Stoneheart cosplay. The year she DIDN’T appear at the end of the season and I had to add a weird sign on the outfit at the last minute that said “GoT S5 Spoiler?” I didn’t want to get beaten up. They happened to be hanging out with Pedro Pascal and thank goodness for the facial prostheses (because I was dying inside). I also may or may not have handed him my phone to take a picture when my wallpaper was a picture of him.

What is (or was) your favorite off-site and why?

Ohhh there have been so many good ones over the years but FX on the grass at Bayfront never disappoints but The right place at Tin Fish was epic. Oh, and it was the same Constantine (oh no I can’t choose)

What’s your favorite thing about San Diego Comic-Con?

It’s my cocoon of goodness, even at worst it’s the best thing ever.

What are you most looking forward to seeing/doing/experienced at the convention after three years away?

Seeing people I haven’t seen in forever and hopefully a screen-accurate Black Krrsantan or a random sighting of Bruce Campbell in the wild.
