    OK here are a few of my pictures I took over the weekend. I am by no means a professional photographer so I apologize for the quality of a few of them.




    Here's the toast to the second season of Stargate: Universe. They provided champagne and sparkling cider to all in attendance.

    No problem. Here's one last batch.




    Here's a little surprise they had for David at the end of their time on stage. A clip of an old movie he did.

    Thanks so much for sharing your pics. What was David's reaction to the old clip?

    I honestly do not remember what David said when he saw that old movie clip of himself but I know he laughed about it. Both he an Joe were hilarious together. Those of you going to Chicago are in for a real treat!

    No, not really. I was in the fourth row (preferred seating) but I think there were only about 7 or 8 rows in total. Very small convention, a nice change of pace. I think this may have been the reason all attending guests personalized their autographs.

    Creation have been good with personalisations lately - even at Van I think I got everything I wanted personalised. LA is a smaller con and we tended to get actual comments on the autos - which is really nice!

    Are those banners I can see on the wall? Did they auction them off?

    Nope!

    It was really great to have such a small con. Nothing was rushed. I was even late for my photo op with Gary, by the way they were joking I think I was the ONLY photo op with Gary, and they stuck around.

    I got a really nice personalized autograh from Joe, he wrote more than just my name and David, he laughed when he saw what I gave him to sign.

    I really really enjoyed also getting to spend some quality time with Alania, Brian and Gary. We got about 5 minutes with each one at the dessert party and then playing Rock Star with the was simply priceless!

    Hey James,
    I don't think Brian has a website, not one that I have found yet anyway. He is a very active Twitter of which I am trying to get some information on, so if I get it I will let you know or maybe someone will post it here.
    Brian was really really nice! You will enjoy meeting him in Chicago!

    Yes, all banners were auctioned off with an autograph ticket and the opportunity to go to the front of the line. Also the stage banners on both sides of the video screen were auctioned off and all guests signed them after their time on stage. They do this at all Creation cons, at least the one's I've attended.

    I did a Photobucket dump today. Feel free to snag anything you would like. I was back in Row M, so the pics aren't professional quality, but take them as you wish. All David Hewlett and Joe Flanigan. No SGU.

    Yes they do...I was just curious whether they would at such a small con given the prices were probably lower - for instance I've seen banners for for over $500 that went for around $200 at the LA con.

    I missed all the auctions - too busy! - but heard the banners did go for really cheap. Some under $100 I believe.

    I think that they may have had a lot of complaints from fans and guests about that. Since the fans are paying good money for the autographs/autographed photos. And I think that the guests may even feel that the fans are getting the raw end of the deal when the Con organizers are telling them that they can't do personalization. All it does is cheapens the experience. Any of the guests could just "presign" a ton of their photos beforehand. And for many fans, getting just an autograph that isn't personalized can have that feeling attatched. And many like myself prefer them to be personalized as it means more to me, and also lets the guest know that it means something to me, and is not just something I'm going to turn around and flog on Ebay or something.
