Okay.. Since I’m on a 4-hour bus ride home to Miami, I figured a Spooky Empire run down is in order. First of all, I can’t move. I’m exhausted from waiting in lines all day and not eating (also I was hungover, stupid me) BUT it was worth every minute and penny. Without a doubt. Also, I met a ton of people from tumblr which was so cool! Hi guys!!!
First I met Rebecca Mader and spent a good 3 minutes talking to her. There was a point when I told her how much I love to hate her character and she told the woman next to her that I had called her a bitch, and then she started cackling. She kept saying how adorable and cute I was and she looked at our photo together and started laughing and saying how amazing we looked together and that we are clearly in our prime.
The line to meet Lana was massive and we waited a good hour and half before being told we would have to come back (they gave us numbers so we wouldn’t lose our spots.) The photo op wait was much quicker, maybe like half hour. Lana looked INCREDIBLE… She was wearing jeans guys. That woman is more beautiful in person than on TV and I have yet to figure out how that’s possible.
Meeting and talking to Lana during the autograph session was definitely the highlight of the day. She looks at you directly in the eye the entire time and does not stop smiling! We joked and told her that her face was going to hurt from smiling so much and she said that she was just happy and loves to smile and that “it’s 100% genuine, unlike Regina who only does that half smile” (to which I obviously replied “but we love that half smile!”) I handed her my painting and thanked her for inspiring me daily with her love and devotion. She loved it and kept commenting on how cool the paper I used was, such a dork. I shook her hand too. At one point she wanted to give the girls in front of us an extra autograph but security stopped her and she starting laughing and said “dammit! I always forget!” She seriously just wants to give her all to her fans and it’s so damn beautiful.
