Summer Glau attented Starfury Fusion, a Buffy The Vampire Slayer convention that took place at the Norbreck Castle hotel in Blackpool, England on 30th April - 2rd May 2004.
Besides Summer Glau, the other guests in attendance were Buffy/Angel actors Elizabeth Allen, Nicholas Brendon, Emma Caulfield, Nathan Fillion, Sarah Hagan, Clare Kramer, Juliet Landau, James Leary, Tom Lenk, costume designer Nickalous Brown; the T-1000 Robert Patrick and Firefly's Jewel Staite were there...because they could.
In view of the small size of the convention, the guests had a direct and spontaneous contact with the fans; more, Starfury Fusion was Summer Glau's first convention as well as her first trip overseas and the photos from the event shed light on her amazement and enthousiasm.
Here's a pictorial report of the event:
The opening ceremony featuring all the guests on stage; you'll notice the Firefly (Nathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Jewel Staite) and Terminator reunion (Robert Patrick and a not-yet-Cameron Summer Glau)

Summer Glau liked the little girl dressed as the Little Red Riding Hood a lot!
I wonder what caused this overload of cuteness.
Jewel Staite gives Nathan Fillion the finger (it has become a recurring gag between them).
Nathan politely answering Jewel, because he's a gentleman.
Nathan gives a lovely Jewel two thumbs up!
The hover hand did not exist back in the days. Special appearance by Summer's navel.

One of the two "stage sets" used during the event was "Giles' Library in Buffy", hence the "book shelves" visible behind the guests in some of the photos.

That's how it should be, not large events with queuing, told what do do, big hired thugs ready to grapple you to the ground or throw you out the moment you sneeze. I would not want to stand in a queue for the honour of paying £200 and sit as though at a presidential address.
