Most of the ones I purchased I display, but it depends on space.

Had a really great day today at LA Comic Con











Also got to meet the gorgeous Michelle Lukes from Strike Back. She is so cool.

That's a great picture with Ming-Na Wen! I'm sure you're gonna have it framed, no doubt.
Nice to put a face to the name as well, being that you're one of the more prolific posters at this forum.

Appreciate you revealing yourself here.
Not an easy thing to do I expect.

I haven’t been to a big Con in a long long time.

No biggie. I know many here are self conscious and anti social and prefer to stay anonymous, so I totally understand.

I had a great time today and it was good to be around other fans even in a mask.

Hm. I may need to consider this next year. Although I hate L.A. and hate crowds.

Re: Comic Conventions

So I bought a ticket to attend another small con in the Los Angeles area on April 16th. It will be in Burbank at The Hollywood Show

https://www.hollywoodshow.com/default/celebrities/

Ticket was only $25

There's a few people in the guest list that I hope to get a photo and autograph with. Mainly Sofia Milos, Constance Marie, Gail O'Grady and maybe Kim Delaney or Lea Thompson. Lea Thompson is obviously the more popular choice since she's popular from Back to the Future. We'll see about time and money. But, I saw most of the autos aren't too expensive at $30-40 each.

But, I am determined to meet Sofia Milos. Been a fan of hers since CSI Miami. Gorgeous Italian actress and gets hotter with age. She's in he mid 50s now.

Damn, that's quite the list. You have a small BTTF contingent, 7-Mary-3 and 4, as well as what would have been a nice CSI: Miami duet had Eva LaRue not cancelled. And cheap autographs is a plus. Lloyd seems to be the highest at $100, and Thompson and Wilson are $60 each for the BTTF crew. CHiPs boys are $80 for the pair. Wish this was closer to me, but it makes sense that it is in Burbank.

Re: Comic Conventions

Went to the Hollywood Show in Burbank, CA today and got a few photo ops and autographs

Constance Marie from the George Lopez show and Switched at Birth. Gorgeous and super nice



Sofia Milos from CSI Miami. She was the main reason I went. Love her and her business manager gave me a good deal that included 2 signed photos and a photo op.




Got Lea Thompson to sign my Back to the Future 4K set. I had to pass on the photo op. I was running out of money



I couldn't get everyone I wanted due to limited funds, but it was a nice and fun little visit.

Christopher Lloyd has the longest line. Same goes with Danny Trejo.

I can't go to these kind of shows too often, but if there is someone I want to meet, I'll try to make the drive. It took me an hour in traffic to make it to Burbank from where I live.

Re: Comic Conventions

Those are some awesome pictures DJariya Thanks for sharing! I was always a fan of Constance Marie since I saw her in Selena. Ming Na Wen seems like a real cool person. Makes me like her even more.
