It's always exciting to meet one of your favourite celebrities. Many San Francisco Comic Con attendees have waited hours in line, just to catch a glimpse of Summer, get an autograph, maybe even a picture with her and all (I hope) went home with cherished memories. Anyway, I have collected together a couple funny and heartwarming stories from fans who met Summer at SFCC last weekend for you. As you will see, Summer always tries to make every person feel special and takes time to get to know each fan. I hope you have fun reading these lovely tidbits.
More stories will be added as they come, so keep checking back!
That time when Summer met
She was surprised/impressed about my full terminator costume and she said: OMG! Your outfit is so good! You're the first terminator cosplayer I am taking a picture with. I told her I am a big fan of her and her work over TSCC.
Malcolm and I have been online friends for a long time now (thanks for the untiring support!), so I'm glad he finally got to meet Summer.
As for my story, not much to tell, I guess for starters, I remember seeing her in Firefly way back when I was just a little kid, and immediately falling in love with River, Innocent, doing quirky things to others, but still has a dangerous side you don't want to mess with.
Lincoln has long been a fan of Summer (he has met her so many times I have lost the count) and we have known each other for a long time. His personalised t-shirts always makes a good impression :-)
I was an Angel fan on the series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She was the ballet dancer. But of course it was Firefly where I became a huge fan. I first saw her in Burbank, California. That was many years ago. The convention was held at Marriott Hotel. Smallville, Battlestar, and it was there where we met. Gina Torres was there too! Summer signed my Serenity poster!
John and her daughter Cassidy - dressed up as Mercy from the video game Overwatch - had a great time meeting intergalactic sweetie Summer Glau.
That's me and my Daughter Cassidy! What a great day, and a true joy to meet you Summer. You are extremely genuine and nice, and not at all the dangerous mystery River was/is (or are you?)
This awesome brilliance_laboratories guy Lewis met Summer dressed up at The Doctor but won the first place in the Comic Book Cosplay Contest with his Star-Lord costume (don't worry, I have posted the picture). What a weekend!
Summer Glau: an unexpected and delightful encounter. I shared with her a picture of Noelle and I wearing our Star-Lord and Gamora costumes and upon discovering that Noelle made her costume from head to toe, Summer commented in amazement, "whaaaat? Oh my god, she is an artist!" She's currently pregnant and let me know that she's due on October 7th...my mother's birthday.
EDIT: Lewis was kind enough to provide additional information on his encounter with Summer in the comments below this news :-)
Jarel was yet another victim of the super sweet Summer. Love his enthusiasm!
THIS right here is probably THE BEST And most VALUABLE thing I acquired from Comic Con this year!!!!
You can see more photos of Summer posing with fans, signing autographs at her booth or at her panel in the San Francisco Comic Con 2017 gallery album.

"she made her costume from head to toe".."she is an artist!" . Wow! She always was an artist, but now she proves she is a multi-talented artist. Amazing ! Edit: In Greece we have an expression for women like this, calling them "hrisohera" (hrisos+heri) which translates to "golden handed woman" .

Hey there! The Gamora of whom you speak is my wife Noelle :) In the first comment we see here, you said "she made her costume from head to toe".."she is an artist!" in quotes...Is this something Summer told you after Noelle left the booth or did I say that, LOL! It was such a whirl wind, that whole day. It took us twenty minutes to go fifteen feet at a time in the trading hall - crazy!
The high point for her was to have Summer ask her if she's a professional costumer. Her response was 'once money gets involved, it's not fun anymore' and Summer sympathetically agreed with her. I was watching from the queue for Cary Elwes when she started jumping up and down at her table and received a hug from her.

By the way....My interaction began when I showed her a close up picture of the stitching Noelle did on one of the arms. It's truly insane an is the reason I sent Noelle over to chat with her. Overall, Summer seems like the kind of person you can just enjoy a cup of tea with and chat about life, in general. Parting thought; she told me her baby is due October 7th...my Mom's birthday. I got a little teared up for a moment because my mom, recently, was diagnosed with dementia. She said she'd be honored to have her baby on my Mom's birthday.

Hey there too! I managed to confuse me first and now everybody else , sorry ! The phrase "she made her costume from head to toe" was said by you (for ms Noelle) and the phrase "she is an artist!", was said by Summer, directly to you, according to the story. I miss-translated your text, thinking that they were both said by you for Summer's skills. My mistake . By the way, congratulations for ms Noelle's work on these costumes! Thank you for all these details you gave us, like Chrisdvanne said !
