I purchased the Jared photo last week, so I guess I am committed now! :)

Lol...so I guess that means your going gold as no other tickets are available atm.

I'll probably be buying mine this weekend. Just gotta check to see if my gf is interested in hanging out and being geeky for a weekend. She's seriously doesn't get the scifi which is a bit worrisome at times. Good thing we have other things in common. :P

I'm holding out hope that Jensen Ackles will be appearing yet. I know in the past differing reasons have kept both Jensen and Jared from showing up at their cons though, so hopefully this won't be one of them. Would also love to see Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Alona Tal, and Samantha Ferris as well, but one can only wait and see what Creation has up their sleeve.

Nope. I'll be getting general admission. Where I am at right now, I can't justify the cost of a gold, or even preferred ticket. I just bought the photo op. It was kind of frustrating to have to commit 11 months in advance, and BEFORE we know about Jensen (since he is the #1 reason I would want to go). But a friend of mine warned me that the photo ops could sell out before the general admission tickets even went on sale. So, I had to do it backwards and get that first!

I suppose it was good, because it got me off the fence about going. Now I have to behave and start saving for it, especially if....sorry, WHEN ;) Jensen is announced, because I will then HAVE to buy his photo op AND the photo op with the two them. That isn't optional! :)

I'll most likely be getting a preferred ticket. The gold includes the desert party and breakfast, but if it's anything like the Stargate con back in August, the price doesnt justify the activities. You barely have 5 min with the guests at your table and the food was sparing. My friend and I showed up a bit late for the desert party (and by late I mean just 5-10 min after the scheduled start time) and the food was picked over, the coffee/tea was gone and they actually only grudgingly ordered more of the drinks after a few others showed up after we did looking for the same. Definitely wasnt impressed.

I'm going to wait on my photo ops. Funny how you did yours backwards though. Guess that's a good way to commit to a con despite the costs of travel/hotel/ticket. :P

Oh, hey. There is a thread for this con! :)

I'll be going. And like Crichiel, I'm a little backwards and only have photo ops & autographs purchased. Can't afford anything more than Gen Admission for this after going gold for the Stargate con in August. I've had fun back there the last two years though, so it should be good times again. :)

What day is Matt Cohen going to be there? I only have a ticket for Sunday, but am coming in Saturday afternoon. You going all 3 days, Switch? I was hoping maybe you and Nikki6969 were free to meet for dinner Saturday night.

It says he will be there Friday and Saturday. I have Gen Admin for all three days, so I will definitely be free Saturday night for dinner or whatever! :D

Woo-hoo! I can't wait!! This year it was finally cheaper to fly than drive, so I don't have to rush off Sunday evening. I fly back home Monday morning. So I won't be there long, but I can relax and have fun!!

If Creation were listening to us (me) they would never do a convention that didn't have Jared AND Jensen! *pouty face* That's the whole reason I'm TRYING to keep my costs down for this con, because I know I'm going to have to save for another where Jensen is a guest! Grrr

Awesome about Mark! I've always loved his characters (probably because he's played a very similar character most times I've seen him: SPN, Firefly, Chuck). What day is HE coming?

Ok, this is suddenly sneaking up out of nowhere. I have stuff to finish before the con and it's only a month away? Yikes!

You were right, Switch, Creation IS stalking this thread! Quick, let's think of some more requests!! ;)

More requests for Creation? OK, um...

Move the karaoke back to a bar. I get what the idea behind having it in the Q&A room, but, um, AWKWARD. Oh, and, well, Clif? As a guest? Really? No, thanks...

The preliminary schedule for Friday and Saturday is up on Creation's site. Nothing yet for Sunday, but hopefully soon.

3 DAYS!!!!

Sooooooo close, I can practically taste it! Switch, did we get a final decision on the group photo? Who's in, who's out?

Since I have to wait until I am there to get the Saturday GA, I figure that's a good indication as to whether I SHOULD or not! If there are still some tickets left at the end of the day, I was meant to see Mark. If not, that's God's way of telling me to stop spending money!!! :P

I hope you all enjoy your weekend. Sounds like it'll be great. And since you all seem to have some psychic link to Creation, can you convince them to add a con a little farther east than Chicago in the next couple years? :)

Thanks, wc! I WISH I could tell them where to have their cons! The plane ticket and the hotel alone doubles the cost for me. If it were here in Minneapolis I could save hundreds...or use that money to get better seats and more photo ops! ;-)

Switch, did you see on the site it said "No requests for special poses on the photos?!!" Does that mean I can't hold up the pic of Button?

There is one in Nashville next year. That's a little farther east.... :)

They always say "No special requests." And you don't have to request. Just go in, say Hi and hold up the picture. :D

Whew! I got bland, generic pictures at that first Stargate con where I was too nervous to do much more than stand there and try not to shake. But, it made me unhappy with them. I don't like myself in pictures unless I can do SOMETHING a little creative (that way I feel people look are looking at something other than me!)

To everybody who's lucky enough to go, have a wonderful time and please remember to bring back news and pretties for those of us left out, okay? *puppy dog eyes*

Was absolutely fnatastic, guys! Better than I could have imagined. I have already started saving up to go next year. Sorry I haven't been too forthcoming with the details since I got back, I've been trying to catch up on RL stuff first, but when I get a good chunk of time, I'll share all the dirt (That I can remember, you kind of walk through it in a fangirl daze!)
