Me and 2 of my friends returned to Animefest to find that the line to Todd Haverkorn JUST started, and managed to wait for about 25-30 minutes before we saw him. When that happened, I was like this:
Me: Blahblahblah-*sees THE Todd Haberkorn and his son, Kyan (I think that's what his name is. I don't remember XP)* *gasps a bit* OMG! Its Todd Haberkorn! *tries to get others to see him a little before my friend calmed me down* OMG, his sons really cute, too! X3
After that happened, we managed to get in, and not only that, We got them in the FRONT ROW! XD
Todd got to talking about all sorts of topics and a few stories as well...(the ones I remember was when he told us how he almost crashed while driving while he was in college because of sleep deprivation, a hilarious story involving Caitlin Glass' wedding, Vic Mignogna, Wendy Powell, raspberries, and Todd singing "Its a Small World" XD It was hilarious!
After telling us a few stories, the Q&A came along and I found myself to be first to ask him a question! (Note, I was really nervous and excited about this! XD)
I got to ask him what the most hilarious bomb he left while recording, and he said that he usually doesn't want to mess up, but somewhere in Fairy Tail, there's a scene where it sounds like the characters are cussing in the Japanese version! XD
I also managed to give him the birthday comic, and here's how he reacted:
shocked that I drew all of it, joked by asking if he had any homework to do after I told him that I even got a teacher to sign it XD, and LOVED IT and told me thank you a multiple of times! He also is planning to put it on his bookshelf! :3 (Personally, this is definitely an epic win XD)
My friends also got to ask him questions, and with one friend we found out how the zombie apocalypse will start up thanks to Natsu and Death the Kid XD, and we found out that besides Natsu, he likes Plue! :3
After the panel, I also found one of my sisters friends at the con (she was dressed as the Goku uniform version of Mako from Kill La Kill
) and we said hi! :3
A little while later, after we scoured around the dealers room, we went to try and get Yuri Lowenthals and Tara Platt's autographs...and found that it was already capped XP then we went to wait in line for Todd's autograph and we found that even THAT line was already capped....that is, until one girl had to leave and couldn't come back. When THAT happened, there was 1 spot left, and my friends ushered me to go in, so I did (and felt bad that they couldn't come with me...I still feel bad about it! T.T)
While I was waiting in line, I DID meet a girl who was an OC (her costume looked awesome!) and we talked about random stuff and we grew playful together! (We also got to draw Hikaru together! :3)
When we got close to the autograph stage, I noticed there was a pink box next to Todd's spot on the table (I KNEW there was a cake in there, and according to Todd, it was a chocolate one :3) and all of a sudden, some of the autograph line started singing "Happy Birthday" to him (with me and my aquaintance singing along too) and everyone started clapping after it was over. It was awesome! X3
So far right then, I got my fan signed as well as a picture I made (with Caitlin Glass', Kyle Hebert's, and J.Michael Tatum's autographs), and got a signature for my friend! :3
I honestly don't remember what else we did before we got Ian Sinclair's, Alexis Tipton's, Tara Platt's, and Yuri Lowenthal's autographs, other then that the 2 out of 3 of us were busy drawing quite a bit of art! (I managed to finish a sketch of Nyo-Japan, Chibi Japan, and Kumajiro on one page and a sort of outline of Space Dandy and Honey on the other while waiting!)
When we finally got there, they were surprised that my friend drew what she drew (skill wise, and she's only 13!), and they got to sign it!
When it got to my turn, I was really excited to meet Tara and Yuri, managed to get my flak jacket signed by them (as well as each of them write a note to my younger sis). When I got to Alexis and before I could show her ANYTHING....my autographed fan fell off....aaaaand landed under the stage where the guests were! XP (I got VERY nervous about it, but luckily one of the volunteers got it from underneath and put it in lost and found after we returned from a Naruto Shippuden Q&A, phew!)
After that drama was calming down (at least for now), I showed her my drawing and got her to sign my Space Dandy drawing for
(Ssshhh! XD) as well as my drawing of Nyo & Chibi Japan as well as me and Kumajiro!
When I got to Ian, I was excited about meeting him and I got him to sign my Space Dandy drawing, too!
The last thing we did (before we went to Sushi Yaa for dinner, it was tasty! X3), we went to a Naruto Shippuden Q&A!
I must tell you, some reactions to the audiences questions were so HILARIOUS! XD (I even got to ask some questions: one to Itachi about a Sasuke plushie rumor, one to Sasuke about either marrying Sakura or Karin, and to Naruto about if his parents knew he accidentally kissed Sasuke XD!)
After the questions though, we found out there was a prize round, and I managed to win one!!! X3333 (the question was what the name of Gaaras apprentice was and if they were a boy or a girl.) Since it was Gaara themed, I had won a Gaara picture, a smaller Gaara drawing, a Chibi Gaara keychain and a Gaara button! :3 (If Liam O'Brien ever comes to a future A-Kon or Animefest, I have GOTTA get him to sign my picture!!)
I tried to get another prize for fun, but I had no idea what some of the answers were XP Oh well~It was fun, anyway! X3
Overall, Saturday was so awesome, and we got to try new things and I got REALLY pumped for Todd's concert the next day thanks to his panel!! X3
I will type up what happened on Sunday later!
