Comic-Con - Melbourne 2013 @ Sunday, July 14, 2013
Saturday - Comic Con - Day 1
Long day, 7am - 6pm. My job was 'Autograph Line Minder', we give people sticky notes with their name, direct them to the right lines and not allow them to take pictures of the guests. Why? Cause we're selling pictures. Though it really doesn't help when one decides to get on the table and strike a pose. :P I saw Prue, Piper, Leo (Charmed), blue fairy & Jiminy Cricket (OUAT), Todd (Scrubs) and other people I've never heard of.
Jasmine & Aladdin
I've never seen this done before, how does her top stay on? O.O
Aurora & Belle -The Rapunzel - Aurora (same outfit) - Megan
Aurora no.2 was pretty... though I think that's a guy.
Generic Snow White - Esmeralda (Hunchback of Notre-Dame)
Rapunzel (2) - Belle (2) - Ariel (Mermaid, Human)
Rocky Horror Show
The Scarecrow from Batman
Undoubtedly the scariest costume! Definitely a prize winner.
This guy was in lines for autographs for quite some time.
I love her outfit, no idea what it's from though...
Unknown & Darth Vader
Sir Gwaine! (?) / Aragon (2) - Lord of the Rings (Galadriel)
Transformer - Flynn Rider (Rapunzel) - Thor - Jawa (Star Wars)
Flynn Rider & Ariel (Mermaid, Princess)
Daria - Arial - Riddler (Batman) - Regina (OUAT)
Jack Sparrow & Gibbs (POTC)
Not taken at CC/13 but I saw Sparrow last year, and Gibbs this year.
Tintin as a Sim with Snowy
Qabili Pailau (Lamb Stew) Served with Yellow Rice 12.50
Charmed Exclusive Panel
We went to a panel (Q & A) for Charmed, which was pretty cool. To see it you have to get the ticket that's about $500 (that also includes other stuff). Considering Charmed was on 1998-2006 it was amazing that people remembered stuff. I've seen the beginning up to when Prue got killed off and bit and pieces of the end. At some point I'll watch it all again. I remember the first time I watched it during spring break in middle school while doing maths (went through most of the textbook before school started :P).
I'm not sure why but I don't usually notice that someone's got an American accent on screen (all the shows I watch except BBC Merlin & Tudors, Downton) other than Brenda with her southern accent (The Closer) but irl it's very noticeable. Btw Prue said it takes 8 days to film an episode with 16hr days.
Staff received an autograph from Patricia or Nell.
Autographs sold for either $30 or $40 each and the lines were very very long for them. I've never understood why people are so keen to meet celebs and to ask them questions. I wouldn't know what to ask. Though I'd totally buy autographs for the cast of BBC Merlin, particularly the knights if they came to Comic-Con.
Leaving at 6.30pm
