my next con is in June in germany
. so far there was no way to get my weapons over. kevin found a way now. so can have my full sg1 uniform in Germany. don't need any other cosplay. what I will by additional is the jacket they have on. and than it should be a bit warmer 😁
So you're going to Stuttgart too , Jack(s) ? I didn't know that ! Lucky you ! :)

I have met Corin Nemec a couple of times he is such a friendly sweet inviting guy....dare I say I enjoyed meeting him more than rick? Yes I dare. I have met all the Stargate Atlantis cast....Joe Flanigan is also a sweet guy to meet...on par with corin...Joe and corin are defo in my top 5 of favourite people I have met...Met Chris judge...not had any interest in meeting Amanda or michael

Jack's it certainly does make the world a happier place when people share pleasantries. 31 items for the cosplay Wow! Is that just for one outfit?The costumes were great, I bet you guys had big fun, I am happy for you that it was appreciated by both Amanda and Rick. Awesome.

yep, 31 items is 1 outfit, put it all together took about 2 month and the pleasure of watching stargate sg1. Oh believe me we had lots of fun walking around like that. 2 security guards loved our weapons and one wanted a photo with us... One guy under all this fans did asked us if we where from sg1 cosplay, we said yes and grind our faces off, he lifted his thumb and told us we nailed it. Pure feeling of joy if you get a compliment like that and later the comments of Rick and Amanda just made totally my day...

Top five ? Can you tell us about the others, Louby ? (if it's ok ?)
A meeting requires many factors to be fulfilling . The con they attend is important ( I think the actors are more relaxed in small cons , and /or if they don't have too many fans , they take more time with them ) . They need to like the fans, I mean feel comfortable with them (I don't think Michael feels comfortable with fans) ...and maybe after a while there's some kind of routine if they attend too many (they have lost the pleasure of discovering they 're famous and willing to show the fans that they're grateful ). Hope you understand what I mean, and agree ... :?
But you might find other reasons too ;)

What a wall , Jack(s) ! :D I know the feeling, I have a shrine at home too !

you are probably right with the to many attended cons. my husband is a big Treki. he got lots of pics with stars from star trek. hardly any of them are smiling. for the fan it self it's a shame. lots of money spend and no smile from your hero.... hope that makes sense now

Jack's your wall looks great. I seem to have a whole room with pics and trinkets, and more to come in July.

Too bad about Shanks and the Startrek actors, they are 'actors' for heaven's sake they could have faked it for a little while, they are getting paid after all. :lol: If their hearts are not in it they should not bother.

It is obvious that with all the con's Rick attends he is very into the whole fan scene. Which is nice for us and him.

2.Corin Nemec...lovely guy..takes time to appreciate his fans..a total sweetheart.
3. Joe flanigan...again takes time to appreciate his fans and so sweet.
4.Dirk Benedict... What can I say. .a big flirt but friendly with it...he's a talker n will talk for ages with u n always has a hug for u.
5.Dwight Schultz...a bit shy but another one who loves and appreciates his fans...had a great meet with him...he gave me the biggest hug.
