When Worlds Collide

Just this last weekend, my husband and I went to the Houston Convention for Supernatural. My all time favorite show. We entered the costume contest with a nod to Madge and Edward who were the villains of the episode "A Very Supernatural Christmas" The two heros, boys raised on the road who
save people, kill monsters... a family business.    kill Madge and Edward (really nasty couple who are bad Santa and spouse) PS for those at the convention, did you notice who walks with a cane? Not my DH although he can be a bit of a curmudgeon like any old person, he is pure of heart. Nope, I'm the one who would be cosplaying Santa and up the chimney we'd go... Not really, but definitely the one who causes more trouble than I solve.

Back to the colliding Worlds. Facebook, even though I've posted about Supernatural many times, and had several rather doubtful comments (fangirling about Dean for the most part) from TVTAG which I could not shut off. .  . arrrgggh! but I digress. Monday I announced our contest results and then put up a link to the tv article, and finally a pic taken of us at the Con. Changed my profile picture, and was generally in the after Con glow. My friends already know me for the most part, and I could for sure tell who really is a friend from reactions! LOL

My dh and I may be too old for such nonsense, but we'll be back again. I'm already figuring out my costume for the "Fairy Lady" and have a great dress at the back of my closet.... I know she dressed in denim on the show... this dress is white denim, and rather retro TX. :)

If you are a rug hooker, look at my earlier posts from a year or two ago. If you are one of my Winchester Family friends, I'll be writing about what I think of various Supernatural episodes or cons now and again...   I loved "There's No Place like Home" although it is interesting to see how differently I interpreted it's meaning during the scene where Dean whaled on Dark Charlie. This was not a time for talking, Although he didn't consider and had been warned that whatever happened to one would happen to the other. Bottom line, to me was that he stopped short of being controlled by the MOC (Mark of Cain).

Highlight of the Con, aside from the obvious, Moose and Squirrel/Rocket and Groot, was actually meeting Dr. Lynn, author of Fangasm and although I missed her when I went for a visit, will hopefully get to sit down and talk to her at length about her adventures sometime!

Adios, Bitches! (A Charlie Bradbury-ism)

I think you are so amazing! I loved seeing the pictures and I am so happy you got to spend a day doing what you love.
I know how I get when I get to go see those things I love.
So are they really as good looking in person as they are on the show? Are they really tall? I always wanted to know that.
I am so happy you are planning next years costume.

Kim, They really are handsome in person, and Sam/Jared is the same height my Dad was. 6'4" is tall. Dean/Jensen is just a bit shorter, but also tall! Misha Collins/Cas is shorter but adorable. Mark Stephens/Crowley is irascible on stage, ate a delicious smelling steak on his panel, and then strolled all over the audience. Gill McKinney/ Henry Winchester their paternal grandfather was really cool. I asked him a question about his thinking about Josie/Abbadon and his answer was interesting and showed he not only understood my question, but thought about and answered my question! Tres Cool, plus the guy can sing!

Kim Rhodes/Sherriff Jody and of course the rest of the crew was every bit as enjoyable as "the boys". A great weekend!
