Summer Talks About Fans, Cosplay and Travel

Summer Glau is tempted to dress up her daughter Milena as a mini River or mini Terminator

Summer did a short interview for the Sunshine Coast Daily on the occasion of her trip to Australia for Supanova Expo conventions in Adelaide and Brisbane. In the interview, she talks about her desire to dress up her daughter Milena as a mini River or mini Terminator for fan conventions (Yes, yes!), the support of old and new Firefly fans and places to go with her husband Val Morrison and their daughter during their trip to Australia.


"I'm so tempted," she said of dressing up soon-to-be one-year-old daughter Milena for Supanova.   
Every time I go to an event, I turn to my husband and talk about how fun it would be to have a mini River or mini Terminator. I think she's still a little bit too young for that yet, but there's so much fun yet to come."


"It doesn't get old because it's so unusual," she said. "It makes me so happy. It amazes me how many new fans are finding it [Firefly] and falling in love with it. 
"It's great to meet fans who bring friends and family who they've showed it to on places like Netflix.
"It keeps growing even though it's been 10 years. The fan base keeps growing."


"I have done some looking around but I really want to get around a few natural spots," she said.
"I poll fans and look at pictures of different areas (to decide where to go).
We'll be in Australia for about 10 or so days - close to two weeks. I know my husband is definitely keen to get out surfing at the Gold Coast."

As David Mello (aka impalergeneral) suggested, "Summer should go for the mini-River look for her daughter. Easier to recreate."

On a related topic, Summer posed with a mini River Tam at Dallas Comic Con 2012.

That would be nice.  If Summer reads this, I'm pretty sure she will find out quickly that fans love her ideas.  I agree that turning little Milena in to a 'first stage endo' cyborg would not be easy as far as make-up goes, as you wouldn't give you child red contact lenses but I suppose she could go for a bit of metal stapled scar or something.  She's got plenty of time to think about it and I'm sure it would engender great interest in the future.  The same for a River, although I'm not sure how that would work, mind you, that mini River Tam did pretty well in the above post.

There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy and baby Milena tops them all, she so super cute.

I haven't followed much of Summer and her daughter but I am starting to now. And she is adorable!
Its a great idea that she is thinking of dressing her daughter as River or a Terminator! It will be quite a sight to see if it happens!

Fans attending a convention already have the opportunity to meet Summer's family. For those who can't, I'm glad photographer Joan Allen will soon unveil images from her photo shoot with Summer, Val and Milena, as well as images from Summer's wedding.

And of course I can't wait to see Milena in her River or Cameron costume biggrin
