DallasCon Friday and Saturday – Favorite Moments In Pictures
DallasCon, like every Supernatural con, was filled with funny, touching and fascinating moments. It’s impossible to live tweet and take photos simultaneously, so I didn’t catch all of them. But here are some of my favorites that I happened to have my camera or phone handy to snap a photo. Stay tuned for Sunday’s happenings soon.
It wouldn’t be a Supernatural con without a beautiful Impala parked outside.
Gil McKinney singing. That will always be one of my favorite things at a con. And cosplaying as Indiana Jones at karaoke. With a whip, y’all. I didn’t get any decent photos but make sure you check out some of the ones out there. I never knew Gil would make such a perfect Indiana Jones.
Richard Speight composing an ode to Gil’s butt as he leaned over to sign the banners (that is, Richard saying out loud what more than a few of the audience were already thinking…).
Creation and Rob Benedict exacting some good natured revenge on the trickster (that would be Richard) by gifting him with a mock Video Prize – which could only, of course, be used for Creation merchandise. It’s rare to see Richard break down and just lose it – and wonderful!
Alaina Huffman’s laugh, and her story of living in Asia by herself at sixteen. Abbadon’s not the only strong woman around here.
And her fabulous idea to put her and Ruth in black leather and crash karaoke to arrest an oh-so-willing Rob.
We missed Matt Cohen at karaoke, but he was there in spirit. And in video.
Something about being locked in a closet.
We also missed Osric Chau, who we remembered in video.
You were missed, Os!
Moose and Squirrel, on the other hand, were in attendance at karaoke. Watching them dance was a highlight of my evening – thanks for posing for a pic, you guys!
Tyler Johnston being adorable, and his story about having to pose with a tarantula on his face. That’s one way to get over a fear of ‘Bugs’…
Also, as Richard pointed out, the banners were in the weirdest position so that it constantly looked like the people in the banners were staring over the guest’s shoulders.
Here Tyler Johnston stares creepily at Tyler Johnston.
Ruth Connell giving out hotel toiletries and green room mints to fans who asked questions – and keeping a sense of humor and enthusiasm even when she wasn’t feeling well.
And using the handy dandy screen to check out her hair.
Also, I just want her pants.
Travis Aaron Wade interacting with fans so genuinely and telling some great stories about working with the boys.
And his campaign to help fans who would never be able to otherwise get to cons.
Matt Cohen in red flannel.
And the way he and Gil have bonded through the cons. The way they all are so close and so comfortable with each other.
Louden Swain. Always.
They can play anything, and play it wonderfully. They can be onstage all weekend long and never lose their enthusiasm. Or their voices. They make sure the cons have never a dull moment, and with every Louden Swain song that they play, I fall in love with their music a little bit more.
Mark Sheppard pretending to intimidate Rob Benedict.
At least I think he’s pretending.
And the way he loves to mess with fans, but clearly loves fandom with all his heart.
Like taking candy from a fan…
Misha putting on his belt and looking like he was taking off his pants.
Misha wearing those perfect jeans. Damn.
Misha just plain looking gorgeous. And smiling again, which I’ll never take for granted after that con when he couldn’t smile at all.
Misha trying to figure out the definition of #Dads and everyone in the audience waiting with bated breath to see if someone would actually succeed in figuring it the hell out!
Misha and company with a fan’s phone going through her photos and being scandalized.
Kathryn “I kicked Jensen’s ass at golf” Newton endearing herself to the audience in her first convention panel (which was actually on Sunday, but I’m putting it in here). Richard was so tickled when she finally kinda sorta admitted that she’d bested Jensen.
The Saturday Night Special. Everything about the Saturday Night Special.
“With A Little Help From My Friends” is the perfect song for the SPN cast. Kathryn Newton, her first time at the SNS, seemed as overcome as we all were at the emotionality of the experience.
Actual Rock God Rob Benedict
I mean, seriously. Look at him!
Saturday night always ends on a high note, with all of us dispersing back to our hotels in love with the Show and its amazing cast. Then it’s a few hours of sleep, because Sunday is J2 day – check back for more from DallasCon Sunday!
