Saturday was going to be a calm day, I planned to spend it shopping and maybe attending to some random panels. I got up and turned on my laptop as every morning to check all social sites. When I was scrolling through my Facebook feed I found a post by Misha Collins (Castiel on Supernatural) saying that there was going to be a GISHWHES gathering at the back of the Convention Center at 11AM. TIME TO RUSH!! I took part in GISHWHES last year and it was awesome and, of course, crazy and hilarious. Misha posted a list of random stuff that included popcorn, straws and candy wrappers to make our costumes of and be able to participate in a costume contest. I picked up some random stuff we had in our room but all I wanted was to see Misha and give my Cas plushie to him.
When Stephanie and I arrived we knew we where in the right place because we saw a bunch of Castiels and people wearing very original costumes.
And now two pics Steph took of me, and another pic of us I found on Tumblr :)
Finally... MISHA SHOWED UP!
The thing is, this fallen angel didn't know where he fell... He said on Facebook people didn't need a badge to participate in the costume contest, but the meeting spot was inside the Convention Center. Half of us were inside, and half outside, and Misha didn't have a badge... The security guys were mad and they said Misha only had 10 minutes to do the contest. Here there are a very short video and some pics of what happened that day:
Confused Misha ahead!
I was right in front of Misha at that moment, so I just decided to give him my Cas plushie, which you can see in the following pic. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a nice photo of him and the plushie (he didn't let me...)
Then I moved so they could choose the winners of the costume contest. You can see the back of some contestants on the following pics (they did deserve the prizes).
All in all, I still have a love/hate "relationship" with this guy (I do have a love/love "relationship" with Castiel thou...). I liked the fact that he didn't mind being with the crowd. He showed up with some friends and left just walking away. The fact that he decided to hold this contest was AWESOME too. I just hated the fact that he wouldn't pose with my plushie. I didn't want someone to take a photo of me with him (which would have caused everyone to ask for photos, I guess) I just wanted a quick pic with the freaking plushieee!!! OK, OK, I gotta calm down :P We also gave him a Hell Hound scarf Cate made. He left with two lovely handmade presents... I just wanted a pic in return!! Whatever... These Supernatural guys aren't the most fandom friendly anyway. (HANNIBAL AND WILFRED CASTS FTW!)
I'm happy I achieved my goal thou, I wanted to give Misha my Castiel plushie and I did it. MISHION ACCOMPLUSHIED! (WTF!)
Well, that's it for today!
Coming Next: Revolution panel (no one cares...)
