Another lovely picture with Summer and Laura Vandervoort at Dallas Comic Con 2012

In their report on this year Dallas Comic Con 2012,  IHOGeek has published another picture of Summer Glau and Laura Vandervoort posing together, as well as a comment; i like how the bloggers describe a Laura Vandervoort fangirling over Summer.
 
As the afternoon began to wane, we decided to try our luck with Firefly and Serenity actress, Summer Glau. While we were denied the time for an interview due to the multitude of people and Glau’s quickly approaching flight to catch, we were allowed to shadow the last half of her private autograph session. Summer Glau is as absolutely stunning in person as she is on film, a petite beauty with locks that fell in perfect waves. Someone make a tutorial on Summer Glau’s hair, STAT! As her session ended, we expected to be ushered out with the other media but surprisingly were allowed to linger and witnessed Laura Vandervoot coming in to meet and fangirl over Summer almost as much as we were doing ourselves!

I got a Hug from Summer Glau.. and she Kissed my Serenity !!

These are some of the most amazing pictures of Summer Glau at a convention that i've seen; i'm sure these pictures will become cult among the Summer Glau, Firefly and Whedonverse fandom.

 
Here's the comment from the lucky guy who met Summer at the Dallas Comic Con 2012, held on May 19-20, 2012.
 

This weekend at the Dallas Comic Con…

I Saw Sir Patrick Stewart, Stan Lee, and Neal Adams! Finally got to meet my Batman Heroes Adam West, Burt Ward, and Kevin Conroy!
 
And I got a Hug from Summer Glau.. and she Kissed my "Serenity”!!!!
 

 

UPDATE :

 

I added another picture of that scene, taken from another angle, and one of the wooden box containing the precious (and expensive) 3 500 euros Serenity scale model.

Supanova Gold Coast April 21 - 22, 2012 
 
 
 
"It was the last day of Supanova Gold Coast, almost closing time. Summer was signing but had no one waiting.
 
We decided to get her autograph and when we went up to say hi she was totally mesmerized by my 10 month old son Zac and I asked if she wanted to hold him.
 
She was so googly eyed and was really reluctant to hand him back but her keeper kinda pushed her to move us on. She was so lovely and down to earth, she really could've been a friend meeting our son for the first time!
 
Oh, and she even gave our older son Jake (he's just over 2) some cuddles too, but we didn't get a pic of that : )"
 
Huge thank you to Erin for sharing that touching story with Summer's fans!
 
 

You can also read the tear breaking story of Summer's meeting with this cute little girl, from the mouth of her very own mother, on the forum.

Summer and the adventures of Bono Puppet

After watching the blog post about FanExpo 2010 Toronto and the many pictures of Summer Glau taken at the convention, some wondered what the little doll she is holding (see picture below) was supposed to be.
 

Summer Glau holds a Bono Puppet

 
 
Here's the story behind that intriguing picture :
 
The puppet portrays Paul David Hewson, most commonly known by his stage name Bono, an Irish singer, musician, and humanitarian best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2.
 

 Bono of U2 performs at ÒWe are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration At The Lincoln MemorialÓ presented exclusively by HBO on Sunday January 18th 2009.

 
Bono Puppet was created by etsy designer mullishmuse. It likes to schmoozes with celebrities and take photos with them, Summer Glau being one of his victims. The original caption of the Summer Glau photo is : "Yes, I am with Summer Glau. Jealous?".

Fan Expo 2010 Canada

Summer Glau attented Fan Expo Canada held in Toronto, Canada on August 27-29, 2010; she was there on Saturday and Sunday for a panel, autograph and photo sessions.
The guest list also included Felicia Day, James Marsters, Adam West, William Shatner and Stan Lee to name a few.
 
Here's what website Bleeding Cool reported :
 
Biggest draws by far were Adam West, William Shatner and Stan Lee but the really really big (surprise to me) draw was Summer Glau. She seemed to be the big celeb everyone really wanted to meet.
 
Why is it not a surprise for us fans?
 
As usual, fans mentioned that Summer was extremely nice and appreciative of all the fans, taking the time to personalize each and every autograph.
 
Here are a few images from her autograph session:

Summer and the Terminator endoskeleton : The story behind the photo

Summer and the Terminator endoskeleton : The story behind the photo
11 May 2012
Many Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fans were thrilled when they saw the photo of Summer posing with cosplayer Kurt A. Weinreich dressed in a Terminator costume at StarFest Convention 2010 in Denver. Kurt kindly shared the story behind that awesome photo.
 

Summer Glau will be at our annual Starfest convention...So I will have to bring out the Endocostume again and snag a picture with her fighting...

As promised, picts from the appearance of Terminator: SCC start Summer Glau. Pretty cool as this was apparently her ONLY convention she would be attending this year. Big crowd, but got to meet her nonetheless.

Here getting my first autographed photo...

Check out her reaction as I informed her that I would be taking a picture with her later as an Endoskeleton...

And as promised, the picture of the Terminators. Summer was quite taken back when she saw the costume and pretty pleased with the effort as she signed this one for me later...

Great times and fun to honor a guest. As many of you know, there aren't too many of these costumes around. Thanks for looking.

Firefly and other celebrities Jedi Chefs

Here are a few Star Wars-style pictures showing celebrities holding light sabers, including the Firefly cast. They come from a website called "Jedi Chefs".
 
There's no way to properly describe the website Jedi Chefs; the guys behind that site describe themselves as following :
 
 
What do the Jedi Chefs do? We Jedi Chefs do the same sorts of things that 'normal' Jedi do, but we also cook.
 
Basically, they hang out in hotel lobbies and conventions, where they have managed to collect an impressive array of celebrities from various tv shows (mostly sci-fi), wearing chef hats and wielding lightsabers.
 
Summer Glau is so into it. It's adorkable. (Summer's images were taken at Starfury Serenity, London in 2005, Starfury the White Room London in 2004 and at Serenity squared London in 2005).
