Summer Glau is un-bear-ably cute but Summer with stuffed animals wins the cute factor. And to prove this, I've decided to collect from our gallery images of Summer holding or cuddling with stuffed animals, dolls or action figures.
The results are just as adorable as they sound. Have a browse and be prepared to get hit with some heart-melting emotions.
Find below the list of gallery albums these photos are from.

Here are a few impressions from the TSCC panel, thanks to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello.
THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES PANEL
10 am: The million-dollar question: Will anyone ask star Thomas Dekker about his controversial exit from Heroes? I've got 15 bucks riding on no.
10:10 am: Lena Headey is making herself very comfortable. In a TCA first, she's sitting with her legs crossed.
10:12 am: Summer Glau simply "adores" Arnold Schwarzenegger, but her Terminator will be different than his.
10:15 am: A reporter comments that Headey and Dekker are very close in age for a mother and son, to which Headey says, "If only that were true." For the record, Headey is 34 and Dekker is 19.
10:23 am: Scoop! The show's title may be changed to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
10:26 am: Schwarzenegger is too "expensive" and "busy" to make a cameo on SCC.
10:28 am: Scoop! SCC costar Richard T. Jones will be back for the first couple of episodes of Girlfriends. Says he's unsure what will happen beyond that.
10:31 am: I just sneezed. It was loud and it was messy.
10:36 am: I'm down 15 bucks. Someone just asked Dekker about Gaygate. "It was something that was blown out of proportion," he says of the hubbub. "The character was [supposed to be] ambiguous. Me not appearing on the show anymore has nothing to do with the character [being gay].... I was never under contract." He claims he left Heroes to do SCC.
10:40 am: Gaggle stampede!
Side note: While Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone did not appear in TSCC as flesh and blood, they did make a cameo. Watch the video and screenshots of Arnold and Sly's appearance in the forum.
Orlando, Florida will host a reunion of two of the Firefly cast members and of three of the Arrow cast members. Indeed, Summer Glau will be joining MegaCon 2015, where she'll meet up with her fellow Firefly cast member Adam Baldwin and also with Arrow cast members Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/The Arrow) and Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance) for three days of meeting fans, photo ops and signing autographs.
The convention will be held in about six months and MegaCon has not published their programming schedule yet, which means we don't know if there will be a Firefly or Arrow panel or if there will be group photo ops with Summer and one or several of the other media guests.
And while Browncoats account for most of the people wanting to meet Summer at a convention, it's good to see that some con-goers also recognize her as Isabel Rochev/Ravager from Arrow, not to mention TSCC fans of course.
MegaCon has an ongoing list of announced guests at its website, which also includes Lou Ferrigno of the 1970's "The Incredible Hulk" series and voice actor Vic Mignogna.
Of course, we will keep you up-to-date on the latests announcements regarding Summer's participation to the convention.
chrisdvanne speaking: I really enjoyed Cory's coverage of Edmonton Expo on Twitter and I thought it would be a good idea to have his impressions in a blog post. When we started discussing the opportunity to do it, Cory told me this was not really something he has done done before and that it might be small. Well...
This past weekend, September 26-28 2014, I attended the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo. This was the third year for the Expo and it has grown each year. The attendance grew from last year's 25,000 people over the weekend to 47,000 according to Edmonton Expo's tweet on September 28. I have attended all three years and it's great to see it picking up such momentum. I have also attended Calgary's Expo since 2011 and I can say it's a great set of conventions to go to as the Staff and Volunteers always do a fantastic job with them.
The Expo in Calgary and Edmonton always draws a wide variety of guests to suit many different tastes, and this year was no exception. There was represenation from the origial A-Team with Dirk Bennedict and Dwight Schultz, Superman Dean Cain, rock legend Alice Cooper, cosplayer Jessica Nigri, sci-fi stars from Falling Skies - Noah Wyle (who made his first con appearance) and character actor Doug Jones. Also present was Mads Mikkelsen, star of Hannibal, and one of the personal favourites of the Expo's own miss Emily Expo. We even got a one-day appearance from two of the stars of the popular comedy series The Big Bang Theory, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar (Howard and Raj).
Many conventions are also blessed to get representation from actors who have appeared within the Whedonverse; the Expo this year garnered a whopping three of them. The first two starred in Joss Whedon's Angel, Amy Acker and J. August Richards, also known as Fred & Gunn; and, also on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, to name a couple. Of course the third appearance was by a Whedonverse veteran - Summer Glau.
I was fortunate to be able to meet Summer at the 2011 Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo (see picture to the right), and when she was announced as a guest on September 17 (two days after my birthday, talk about a great belated present), I'm pretty sure my heart skipped a few beats and I held my breath while I re-read the Expo's twitter announcement a couple of times. At that time I was anxiously waiting for the Expo to arrive, but with the announcement of Summer it couldn't come fast enough.
The first day of the expo was Friday the 26th. It was considered more of a preview day so there is a little less going on, it was also added this year as last year only had Saturday and Sunday. It gives people a chance to wander about, check out the multitudes of vendors and artists all showcasing their products and art. It's also a great time to grab autographs and photo-ops from the guests that are there that day, as there are less people in line. This first day also gives the convention staff an opportunity to find things they can improve on, often by getting feedback from the convention-goers, for the next day.
Summer Glau will meet her fans at the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo this weekend and we all know she has a very tight schedule but I really hope she'll have time to meet some of the other media guests. Indeed, the star-studded 2014 Edmonton Expo line-up includes familiars faces such as Amy Acker, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar or J. August Richards.
I'm very well aware most of you know perfectly who they are, but let me refresh your memory and present a selection of images featuring these actors, both on and off screen.
Amy Acker is a member of the Whedonverse, and just like Summer, she has appeared in multiple shows or movies Joss Whedon has done in the past, including Angel, Dollhouse, or more recently Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Their last encounter on TV - in Dollhouse 2.11 'Getting Closer' - did not end well, but hopefully Summer forgave Amy.
These are the moments that make me truly appreciate cosplay; when a cosplayer meet Summer Glau at a convention and they decide to strike a wacky pose, magic happens. The following photo, taken at this year's London Film and Comic Con, is probably one of the most amazing photo op with Summer ever.
Find below the story behind this amazing photo op with Summer Glau, including the exclusive photos and comments from Trevor Price, the imaginative fan hiding behind this custom made costume.
If you don't recognize the character Trevor is cosplaying, then you probably aren't familiar with Cartoon Network's animated series Powerpuff Girls, and with the archenemy of the girls and main antagonist of the series, Mojo Jojo.
Trevor has detailed in a blog post how he created his version of Mojo Jojo, including idea generation, sketching, researching materials and fabrication. Find below a few pictures from the costume's creation process, that Trevor kindly allowed us to use (last two pictures by Food and Cosplay).

Trevor was kind enough to send us a few words on his meeting with Summer at LFCC and the inspiration behind his photo op with her.
I knew Summer from a number of shows including Terminator the Sarah Connor chronicles, Arrow, Alphas, The Cape and Dollhouse.
Originally I planned to have her choking me in her character Terminator however I changed my plans when it became apparent I would have to do it in Mojo Jojo after her flight got cancelled. On the day of the photo shoot, she was wearing a flowy dress which didn't scream Terminator, so I improvised and decided to do a proposal: I got down on one knee with Buttercups head serving as a ring. She was shocked. I also learnt taking a knee in that cosplay was difficult.
I didn't really have time to present my idea to her as the shoot is like a 10 second thing. Knowing this and that I couldn't be understood easily in the mask I just got into position as fast as possible.
Bonus: Trevor's photo op with Lena Headey.
Originally I was just going to have a simple pose with Lena, my Joffrey POP vinyl and well...me. However as I was Mojo Jojo this became a truly amazing shot which I love! It became a Mojo Jojo family portrait of sorts.
A huge thank you to Trevor Price for allowing us to reproduce his comments and photos...and of course for giving fans the opportunity to be amazed at his unique photo ops.

Since I have spared a few euros by not going to London Film and Comic Con last July, I have decided to buy a couple photos with Summer Glau from Showmaster's online photo library. Of course, I have selected the photos where Summer, with the help of inventive cosplayers, unleashed her inner geek, or striked a funny pose, or was simply looking cute, as she always does.
Enjoy these 30 HQ photoshoots with Summer Glau from this years LFFC!

The caveman in me loves the photo op where Summer is pulling the women's hair. Which one is your favorite?
