Need Opinions (look at these pretty pictures)  
It's tough, the things I ask of you...to take time out of your busy schedules and look at these pretty pictures of Brock Kelly and Matt Cohen.

How could I ask such a thing of you?

So heavenreturned asked me if I was getting excited about convention.

Isn't that a silly question?


I've had like two convention dreams a week for the last month now. Last night it was a boring one though - I was just packing my bags and all my jeans looked the same and I couldn't figure out which one was the pair that fit me best. Not nearly as good as the one where there was a world wide plague apocalypse going on and my whole family was in the hospital, but I went to Con anyway, cuz CON! (For the record, I would NOT do that.) Or the one where I went to Con and The Humane Society was there with puppies and all the Orlando Bloom autographs were sold out. I kept asking people why Orlando was even at a SPN convention and they were all like, "Uh, duh, because Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd canceled at the last minute." Or the one where Matt Cohen was dressed up like Adam Lambert (which is weird cuz the extent of what I know about Adam Lambert comes from other people's LJ icons.)

Then yesterday I saw my grandma and she told me to have fun on my trip and not to get picked up by any guys. Now anyone who knows me even a little bit, knows that my first thought was, "But I want Jared to pick me up. I can climb him like a tree." - And then I realized she meant, you know, hit on me and take me back to their rooms. Not pick me up off the ground and like, carry me around. And my thought was, "All the good ones are married. But AJ Buckely isn't. Mmmm, AJ Buckley."

Everyone in my family thinks these things are giant orgies. Or that there are like Men at these things. Seriouly, it's like 98.7% women <--like how I just made that number up? The men-folk who are there are mostly the actors and good lord, let them hit on me all they want. And also, I am not a person who is opposed to orgies anyway, at least on a thereotical level, but seriously...where do they all think we are going? The Cousin's dad was convinced that she would get kidnapped or that men would be inappropriate towards her. I said, "What men? She's more likely to get kidnapped at The Mall," which probably wasn't a good argument in hindsight. I mean, a father of a teenage girl should worry about those things, but no more at a convention than at any other time she is out of his sight, honestly. Where do they think I'm taking her? What do they think goes on at these things?

Now the good stuff...I made autograph pictures. I like to bring something a little original. (Ever since the first time I got an autograph in person when I had a wallpaper printed out that I made of Frodo and Sam and Sean Astin said, "Where did you get this? It's cool." I was all, "I made it." And he goes, "You made it? Wow. That's awesome." Which was awesome.)

So I made quite a few, I maybe got a little carried away. But I have decided what to print for each person...except Brock Kelly and Matt Cohen. I can't decide. I've gotten a few opinions, now I want yours.

So, here, look at my options and tell me which you like best. Colin Ford is NOT going to be there, but I am always prepared for the future, and I love the Little Winchester Brothers. But then I realized the odds of me ever getting Colin's autograph is like 100 to 1, so that seems silly, even though the pictures look really awesome.

Brock options...

Matt Cohen...

Thanks, Peoples!

(Also, if you are going to Chicago Con, don't forget to bring something for the food drive! Thanks!)

"Uh, duh, because Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd canceled at the last minute."
Oh, for F's sake! That was one creepy dream! Like, SPN without the boys?! O_o

Or the one where Matt Cohen was dressed up like Adam Lambert
God protect us! I'm really starting to think I should learn some of Sam's exorcisms. Might come handy, at moments like this.

I'd go with the first one for Brock. And for Matt (my God, that guy IS hot!), the one with the ripped jeans. 'Cause I just totally love the sneakers he wears. I've got this strange cheap sneakers kink or something.

I think I need an icon of Matt. Like right now. *nods to herself*

Well, the SPN boys may have been at the Con in my dream, but honestly at that point I was very focused on a) the fact that I almost got to meet Dom & Billy, cuz I heart them - and b) wanting to adopt all the puppies. I never got farther than that, so who knows, the Js may have been there too (but I've already bought their autographs, so I guess Dream-Me wasn't too worried about that).

Matt Cohen as Adam Lambert was actually really hot in my dream and he was a bartender for some reason, so he kept saying how the clothes and makeup were going to get him extra tips, which they probably would - but then I woke up and was all "Adam Lambert? WTF?"

That's the Brock pic I was leaning towards. God, yes, Matt, not hard to look at, is he? Ha! I too have a cheap sneaker kink - glad I'm not the only one, lol. I really love that picture of Matt a lot.

Matt icons rec, I just found these the other day - (using my fav pic of him) Matt icons

*drools over pictures*
Uh, I have to pick one?

OK, for Brock I vote for the first one.

*drools some more over Matt no. 4 and 5*
Uh, was I saying something?

For Matt I vote no. 5. After some angsting. Such prettyness!

What DOES your family think happens at conventions? And where can I go to find those? :P

I love your idea to make you own autograph pics. As you seem to know what you're doing: should I bring my own pics when I go to Asylum 5 in a month? (OMG, it's just a month left!) Is that how one does it? It's my first con. :)

I'll go back to drooling over the pretty boys now. Kay?

Brock #1 is winning this thing thus far - it's actually the one I think I like the best too (I really like the background color I used here)

Matt #5 is actually the one The BFF picked too - I think I'm leaning that way.

IDK what my family thinks goes on at these things! I mean, yes, it's true, Misha is sometimes inappropriate and really wildy flirty, but whatever, you don't hear me complaining. But that's Misha, he doesn't count. In the scheme of things, I expect to attend some Q&As, get a couple of photos and spend the rest of the time watching vids and playing SPN Life with some girlfriends.

At conventions they usually have headshot photos that you can buy to get autographed (but you have to buy them). I've never figured out the whole Printer Ink vs Headshots as far as money goes, but I figure it's fairly even on the cost. Plus, then mine are more visually interesting looking than just the standard glossy headshot. At Creation Cons, they also usually have a poster with all the appearing guests on it, so you can have one thing signed by everyone. My sister always brings her DVDs and has them sign that (she had Fred Lehne sign her X-Files DVDs and he was very excited to have someone even remember his episode, let alone say it was her favorite of all the X-Files eps ever - which he really has no idea what a huge compliment that is, since she is the biggest X-Files dork of all.) She has all her SPN DVDs autographed. The Cousin is taking her Friday the 13th DVD for Jared to sign this year. Also, if you have the SPN comics at all, or any of the books, or the essay book that was put out awhile back. Any of those things work. Kripke is highly influenced by American Gods, so I actually took that book last year and got the Js and Richard to sign it for my friend.

But...if you want...I can post some of my stuff and you can just print whatever you like and use it. I don't mind and I doubt my flist will object to me putting up more pretty pictures. I thought about doing it anyway, so people could use them if they wanted, but I only know like three people who are going. I didn't think about like other cons.

What's your guest list look like? Just curious.

Your first con - that's exciting. /insert inappropriate comment about your virginity here/.

Get out your computer cleanser, so when you're done drooling you can wipe your computer down, k? Great. ;)

Misha is always Misha, that's expected. ;)

Oh, yes please! That would be awesome! *bounce*

Asylum 5 will have:
Misha Collins (Weee!)
Aldis Hodge (Also weeee!)
Mark Sheppard
Richard Speight Jr.
Frederic Lehene
Julie McNiven

I'm pretty excited about all of them, but espacially Misha, of course. ;) I thought, for a second, about going to Asylum 6, too, because Jensen would be there, but it sold out in like... minutes. :P

It is exciting! And I have no idea what to expect, so if you have any tips you want to give, that would be great. :)

Will do! Drool is not good for electronics, I've been told.

My votes?
#2 and #1.

Matt Cohen. UFFF that man is so handsome, pix NEVER do him justice. It's debilitating, IMO

Re: My votes?
Thanks! (I really like that one of Matt, the John Winchester look just suits him so well, plus you can see a corner of The Impala in it!)

Matt is quite pleasing to look at in pictures. I can't wait to see how much better the real thing is. I also hear that he smells good.

Will look for you this weekend!

Holy shit, Matt Cohen is hot and beautiful! Damn.


I go for the first Brock. Obviously I like that pic.

For Matt Cohen. I can't decide. Good luck, chica.
dodger_sister: dorkusdefined-smut_slutdodger_sister on October 5th, 2010 01:57 am (UTC)
Yay Icon!

Yes, I too am quite fond of that picture of The Teenchesters.

What?! You can't decide on Matt?! But he is killing my brain with complicated decisions! Aaaagh. Actually, I think working on those Matt pics to begin with like melted my brain and now I can't decide things.

Aaagh. I guess I have to stare at them some more. My hard life. /sigh/

second to last Brock, second Matt. (mind you, they're all great, but I like those two best)

hvae a great time! (one of the conventions I attend DOES have orgy potential at all times; most, we're just looking at parties. LOTS of parties! and all that other convention stuff too....)
dodger_sister: dorkusdefined-smut_slutdodger_sister on October 5th, 2010 02:04 am (UTC)
You just chose the Brock picture that I would have said was my runner-up. Actually, it is my favorite, but logic tells me that since I won't ever get Colin's autograph, I shouldn't use it. Now I'm torn again.

Something about that picture of Matt, the way the coloring brings out his eyes. And how his hair begs for me to run my fingers through it and make it even messier.

What was I saying?

Ah, yes, there may or may not be orgies going on at the con I go to - but not in any place that I have ever ventured. Nor in any place that I would take the 15 yr old cousin. What Con are you going to that has orgies and where can I get tickets? What? I wouldn't take The Cousin to that one. lol
Ironlily - Making My Marquevikingprincess on October 5th, 2010 11:00 am (UTC)
That makes sense, about using a picture just for the person whom you're sure you can get a signature from. In which case, any of the pretty boy solo would work. :)

I haven't managed to get there for a couple of years, but check out the website frolicon dot org - if nothing else, it's a con with some pretty specific interests! (and only for the over-21 crowd, as well)

Loved those pictures. And thank you very much for offering to let us print and use them. I may try to use one or two of them. Matt Cohen is gorgeous. They did a wonderful job in casting him. I could visualize him growing older to appear as Jeffrey Dean Morgan did as John, but also elements that would show up in Jared and Dean. For example, it looks like his build is somewhat similar to Jared's.

Let me know if you want anybody else. I actually made some that have all the guest stars - minus Clif and plus Jason Manns - for Chicago Con 2010. It saves you ink to just print one, but you might run out of room before you get to The Js and Misha (Jared has to take up the whole page when he signs his, it's ridiculous, Jensen totally mocked him.)

If it were legal for me to lick Matt Cohen, I think I would. I could totally see him growing into JDM-older-John. But I was never sure of him next to The Js. Then I saw a side by side comparision of him with them and I totally buy it. I could kind of see some Jensen (or maybe hear it in his voice, idk) but yeah, looking back at like first season Jared, oh yes, I totally see it.

#2 Brock, but I'd recommend a silver sharpie for the autographs (it's what I have done when I get my partners bass case signed by comic artists. it shows up so much better when the background is black, really pops)

For Matt, #1 for character, #4 for total hotness. Oh yes that is totally hot. The torn jeans, sneakers, the pose. Actually all of your manips are very well done.

I've found non fan people have no idea what conventions are like. I go to a number of small comic conventions around the midwest and I get weird looks from the people at my 'real' job when I talk about them. They don't get the thrill it is to be around that many other people that all have the same hobby passions as you.
dodger_sister: broswinchesters_nito_punkdodger_sister on October 5th, 2010 04:26 am (UTC)
Brock #2 is totally in second place right now. Yeah, first year there was a silver sharpie crisis. Now they always have both options. The handler just slips whatever they need into their hand and they keep signing, lol.

Ha! Everybody loves that pic of Matt with the rip in his jeans and the cheap sneakers!

Actually all of your manips are very well done.
Thank you. I'm pretty happy with them considering I hate my stupid photo program on this computer.

Yes! What I love best about the convention is (besides the drool-worthy eye candy) that you can turn to any person next to you and know that you have one major thing in common. You are just surrounded by people that you don't have to try to explain your "thing" too. It really can be a community.
