My amazing weekend summed up in photos….
Meeting one of my all time favorite actresses Rose McGowan and giving her the portrait that I drew of her as Cherry Darling. Yep this happened….
We all know Rose is gorgeous but her beauty really shines through even more due to her genuine personality and appreciation of her fans. You can also tell she is an artistic soul. Which a girl like myself can relate to. She was an absolute doll in person. Just how I had imagined her to be. She was so excited when I told her she got to keep the piece of art that I drew of her. She even gave me a big hug and told me how her father and husband are also artists and that many fans just want her to sign their art and she never actually gets to keep it. I was so shocked to hear that. I told her for me it’s my way of giving back to the people who I admire and are inspired by. Call me a fan geek if you want, but I am still in awe and so honored that this moment happened.
On top of all that awesomeness, I also I got to see Sid again. It’s seems like forever since I have gotten to play catch up with him in person at a con. I got lucky and cross paths with him in the hall so I didn’t have to wait in line and actually got to talk for a little bit. He told me how happy he was to see me out amongst everyone again (he follows my gofundme). He gave me a big hug and told me to stay well. Seeing him again totally made the con that much more wonderful.
I have not been able to go to a con for the last 2 years due to all of my surgeries so this weekend was very memorable for me. I got asked to enter the tattoo contest they were having but due to us waiting on the photo op pics I missed it. Maybe next year. It was pretty cool that they pulled me a side to tell me I should enter when they saw my work.
Oh and to make the con complete this obnoxious and amazing cardigan sweater is all mine thanks to the greatest husband in the world 😉 He got the last one! SCORE!
